eReader Software Guide

The eBook format you choose must be compatible with your computer, handheld device, or eReader operating system, and the reader software you use.

Reader Apps  Compatible with iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod® touch

These devices will automatically launch the following eReaders for direct download when ePUB or PDF books are purchased from our eStore.

Stanza App  - Is a free app compatible with iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod® touch that supports DRM free eBooks and requires iPhone OS 4.0 or later. The app is designed to read ePUB format books.  Stanza 3.0.3 will also read eBook PDF files, but PDFs are not optimized for small screens, so the reading experience on handhelds may be inferior to the experience with ePUB.

iBooks App  - Is a free app compatible with iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod® touch that supports DRM free PDF and ePub formats.  Some PDF documents may not be compatible.

Bluefire Reader App - Is a free app compatible with iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod® touch that supports DRM free and Adobe eBook DRM protected PDF and ePub formats.
