What Our Users Say on the Mac App Store

Absolute perfection

I have used Swift Publisher for a great many years. The new additions and simplistic way Swift Publisher 4 operates keeps it an invaluable tool. The support is fantastic… though I have not needed them on this version, I found that on other software by Belight, if I did something like kill the program or did not do an update correctly they were always there. Happy to find this new version in the App Store.

Trent Young

Swift Publisher 4

It is an excellent program for producing a small car club magazine — enough features to do all I need as an editor, but without the excessive features that complicate the larger more expensive ones, and which are so hard to learn and often seem to have minds of their own. The new features in V4 make it even better than V3 which was easy to live with in its own right. I now look forward to starting on the next edition of my club magazine — with pleasure, not dread!


Exceptional application

I’m a teacher, and I use this program daily for myriad tasks. It is stable, intuitive, and smooth. I’ve created handouts to share with both parents and students, posters for use in class, slides to display on my Smart Board, etc. At home, I use it to create memes to share on social media. Highly recommended.
