Shiro Oni Studio's Review of Minimal FolioReviewed on 8/28/19 2:08 PM
Couldnt ask for a better app. Sure, there are a couple features I would like added, maybe they will come with the next update. More importantly this is a nice, clean, intuitive app that is fun to use and looks great. Also I used it for a presentation and got a job. If you have any inquiries Simon emailed me back in a few hours. Cant say it enough. If you are an artist: Get it!

This app is the presentation engine our entire team works from. All my international distributors now use it and Dropbox provide a fantastic content distribution tool. Everyone that watches me use immediately sees functionality for their industries that have no similarity to ours. I don't know what the naysayers are trying to do, but I can't believe MF can't do it. As regards to image quality, start with good quality content. Those people may be too young to remember; garbage in, garbage out.

This app can only be useful as a presentation tool if it is 100% reliable and glitch free. It is not. Like other users who have reviewed here, I too have experienced the phantom all black non-slide, the mysterious rearrangement and disappearance of my slides and. It's a bummer. I can't use this for showing my work to clients unless I know it is going to work correctly every time. It does not. Let me know when you fix it.

Annoyed I wasted my money. Can’t even import images without crashing. Unusable.

The portfolio looks great after you get it right. The problem is with the ipad synching. Proper synching would look for the most recent version and put that in place. What happened for me is I loaded some folders into dropbox in the minimalfolio folder. Synched within the app and they loaded up. So far so good. Some of the photos were too large to display within the app however, so i went to the images in dropbox, resized in photoshop and saved. Then in the app i re synched. Voila, all the old images on the ipad overwrote the dropbox images. I then thought I would delete the items in the app and replace the images in dropbox as I had when I started. This time, when I synched with dropbox, the app deleted my dropbox files!!!! This seems totally wrong. A synch should use the newest version of the named file. No idea if I will get it working in time for a presentation. But all in, I have to say for a new buyer it is too much trouble.

Minimal folio is as the name describes - minimal. It is a great way to show off my work, and does well with both images and video. Dropbox sync is a nice way to keep things updated.

I have been using this for about 4 years. It is the most elegant, straightforward means of presenting my work. I have a separate column for each project, starts with a self made title sheet, on to photos of the completed work, then PDF’s of floor plans. Each project is its own very complete presentation. Then I have a separate portfolio of magazine publications, if an interview with a potential client warrants it. Had a couple of glitches transitioning into iOS 11, but all worked out, and smooth again.

It was FABULOUS - when it worked. It doesnt anymore. Please update. I miss the ease of use when it worked. Crashes , hidden images, order not sticking, strange duplications,...

This app is not fancy, nor does it have bells and whistles, it is very clean and intuitive. I had my portfolio up and running in less than 10 minutes!

wonderful ! This app got so much better with updates (have not used it in a while, and am very pleased how far this has come). The Dropbox sync with the master upload / masterdownload options makes selecting and editing a portfolio on a computer fast and easy to transfer to the ipad. Love the fact that no syncing through itunes is necessary. Big compliment to the developpers !
