5 Evaluation

Keebook offers the possibility to work with different formats (word, pdf, images etc) in one environment.

This application needs to know how to use other applications like Word, Excel, Paint, Internet-Browsers, Adope Acrobat Reader.

Keebook offers the possibility to export de whole book in a full functionally front-end HTML-web-package – but these functionality is not on the top yet!

The functionalities for communication and collaboration are poor: It's possible to e-mail the book or to publish the book on the web. There is no functionality to work together on a document – you have to send and send-back the whole book!

Keebook is for single-users with a good MS-Office-background.
