ePub – Book for Multiple eReader Devices
E-publishers and authors have been finding out many different eBook formats when it comes to reading the book on devices like iPad, Kindle, Nook and Sony Reader. There was no such format which can be played on multiple devices. Either you purchase only one format or pay more for other formats for your devices. But now the trend has changed. All know how quickly the market has changed after the iPad and other devices have arrived. IDPF’s ePub format can be played on iPad including devices like Nook, Sony Reader etc.
At present, there is no such format which gives 100% certainty to run on all the eReader Device in e-Publishing. IDPF’s ePub format is the only format which can be played on multiple devices with the better formatting layout. For Mobi formats, you have only Kindle devices. As said earlier, an ePub file can be played on devices like iPad, Sony Reader, Nook, Adobe Digital Edition (Desktop reader) and many others. Even you can play it on Apple’s iPhone & iPod and Blackberry Cell phones. Is it not so cool?
One of the important advantages of ePub is the conversion ability to other formats. You can convert it to other formats like Mobi, Lit, and RTF etc. Means you will be able to access the book on the devices like Microsoft Reader, Kindle, and Barnes & Noble.
Conclusion: An ePub file will work on multiple devices than any other eBook format and is able to be converted to most of the other eBook format.
Note:- Before publishing your book validation is important. So make sure when you hire a conversion company for your book conversion, they validate your ePub according to all the standards defined by the IDPF. Mobi format does not require validations.
ePub eBook formats keep the standards of well-styled formatting, Including audio/video embedding ability. It is an open book format, which keeps all the chapters/sections of the book in different HTML or XHTML files. The new version of the ePub as ePub3 is now available. Which generally called “Apple fixed layout format“.
