  1. Hi
    I’m sorry to hear you’ve discontinued your ebook for CS4 as that’s the program I have. Do you know of any other similar downloads to that for CS4. Much appreciated.

      Sorry that we have discontinued the CS4 version, but keep checking the Apple App store as we are hoping to release the CS4 App also if the approval process finally goes through. It required some serious rewriting as the size didn’t match Apple’s design requirements.
