Trying to find pdf flip book software for Mac

I've used FlippingBook software from page-flip.com and it is beautiful. Creates elegant flip books from pdf files. I've used these to create company catalogs that we put on our websites. The problem is that this program only works on a PC. I have to create my pdf files and then try to find someone with a PC to run my files through the program.
I am looking for a similar programs that works with Mac.
Here is a link to the program I am talking about:
http://page-flip.com
check out some of their demos - their beautiful (not clunky looking like some I've seen.
Thanks.

Its for mac or pc, but is more expensive.

Did you find any other page flipping/e edition software for the Mac?

InDesign?

I'm pretty sure InDesign in CS4 has the ability to do this feature - but think it generates an SWF. Not sure if this helps

You are correct.

Keynote

Have you tried Keynote (part of iWork)?
I recently opened an old keynote file, saved it as a pdf and it "played" fine, music and all. Then I uploaded it to my server to view online, fine again.

A note: When saving a pdf for the web, downsize the file, to ensure it is not too large

Hope this helps you.

Hi monta17

I have an identical question - I produce maybe 4 or 5 a year for different websites - but would like Mac software. Did you find anything good or did you go back to page-flip?

Cheers!

I would recommend having a look at FlexPaper zine, it comes with a web based admin UI which you install on your web server and you then publish your documents from there

Just an update on this; looks like Devaldi has released an updated version of the FlexPaper flip book for mac, you can download it by clicking Download Desktop Publisher:

http://flexpaper.devaldi.com/download/

Its really fast in converting and publishing documents, quite impressive
