iPad eBook formats: Which formats work?
I find that a lot of iPad owners who are looking to use their iPads for reading eBooks want to know what formats are compatible. Buying eBooks directly through Apple’s iBookStore makes it simple, but for better prices and more variety you may need to look elsewhere. This makes it important to know which eBook formats will work on your iPad so you don’t end up wasting money.
What format are iPad eBooks in? Books in the iBookStore come in ePub format. The iPad is formatted to read books in this format, whether you buy them directly from Apple or otherwise. Books in the iBookStore cost an aerage of $12 each. For $50, you can get unlimited ePub format books, comics, and newspapers from a source like this.
Many eBooks are in PDF format. Can the iPad read PDF files? The answer is yes and no. With the aid of certain apps, you can read PDF format eBooks on your iPad. You can also find a website that converts PDF files to ePub format so that you can read them. However, without an app or converter, the iPad is not formatted to read
Can I read my Kindle books on my iPad? Yes, you can. Using the Kindle app, any books that you have purchased through the Kindle store can be read on your iPad. You can also continue to buy Kindle books using this app.
