Catch of the Day - ePUB2Go - Jul 26, 2010

ePUB2Go is a web site that allows you to convert a PDF to an ePub file that can be read using a variety of ebook readers.


Why would you want to convert a PDF formatted document into the ePub format? The primary advantage of the ePub format is that it creates reflowable text, which means the text display adjusts to a number of variables such as the size of the display, the font being used, the size of the font, and so on. Consequently, ePub formatted documents display better  on a wide variety of readers, including mobile devices.

ePUB2Go is very easy to use. There are only two buttons on the home page, The PDF is on my Computer and The PDF is on the Internet.

Click the appropriate button, tell ePUB2Go exactly where the PDF file is located, upload it, and in a short time you will be given the options of either viewing or saving the ePub file on your computer or having it emailed to your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad where it can be downloaded directly into the Stanza ebook reader.


Other good ways to view ePub files on your iDevice include the DropBox and apps. However, you'll have to download the ePub file first to your computer and then move it to your DropBox folder or upload it to

ePUB2Go is free to use and there is no software to install on your computer.

Notes:  The PDF must be no more than 30MB, only bitmap (non-vector) images are converted, and tables are not converted
