Page flipping software for Mac

Hi All

Am going slightly insane trying to find a good page flipping software for the Mac from either swf or pdf. I need it to be able to read links, zoom with vector text and that I can host on my own site. SEO compatibility would be great.

I have looked at
http://www.3dissue.com/buy%20online%20magazine.htm
no links until you buy the $1299 version
http://www.edocker.com/try-and-buy/
no links
http://www.axmag.com/
Pretty horrible interface. Can't change the serif page numbering

Any ideas

Many thanks

There is a tutorial around the web for doing this with Adobe Flex for free. Though all of these rely on Flash so no SEO at all.

Next up is have a look for jQuery page flipper, i've seen a few effects built ether in the canvas or with jQuery and these are much more SEO friendly and also free if your willing to put in the work to follow the tutorials and documentation.

The flash=No SEO isn't as true anymore as long as it's built properly, google can index flash now; but you don't get the SEO value of h tags with flash.

Fixed that for you.

Google has been indexing textual content for awhile.
