I'd like to convert a PDF file to ePub format for reading it on an iPad. Is there an online/desktop tool that will allow me to do that?
The iBooks is the eBooks application introduced by Apple to manage and read eBooks library on iPad and iPhone. iBooks uses an ebook format called ePub. If you have some ebooks already in PDF format and want to convert PDF to ePub online to read in iBooks app, here is the simple method.
With a free PDF to ePub converter, which is available on OS X, you can quickly convert PDF (and other file format) to .epub files, which you can then transfer to read on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
The .epub file extension refers to an Open Publication Structure eBook file. This format is a popular and freely available eBook standard so most ePub files you find will probably be of this format.
