    Question How can I convert PDF files to Epub for iPad 2

    Hi all,
    I would like to know, is there any way I can convert PDF files (over 30MB, so "ePub2Go" is out) to ePub file so I can drop it off in iTunes and then read it on my iPad 2?
    I just want to be able to read PDF formated book on iPad 2... Apple, why are you so difficult?

    TRANSFER PDF TO IPAD 2
    The iPad 2 is coming. Recently the Apple corporate released the new edition of iPad. Compared to the former one, it is thinner, lighter and faster. A Plenty of merits boost your surfing, watching, gaming and everything. It is a symbol step towards portable Wi-Fi world.

    Unfortunately, the iPad still doesn’t support to view PDF files directly. Thus, people who do opt to snap up the iPad 2 or have already had one may have the same problem about how to transfer PDF to iPad 2.

    Actually you can send PDF files as attachment via e-mail to transfer PDF files into ipad2 and open it in the Mail application of iPad then you can view the PDF files.

    Or you can directly transfer PDF to iPad 2 with iTunes 10 as following:

    1. Launch it and connect your iPad to your PC
    2. Add your PDF files to the iTunes library
    3.After adding, sync the PDF files to your iPad
    So you could read the PDF files through PDF reader on iPad such as the awesome one-GoodReader.

    However, there may be some questions that you need to upgrade to iTunes 10 and at least iBooks 1.1 and the navigation of PDF files in iPad isn’t the smoothest and can’t reflow. Thus the reading experience is relatively poor especially for eBook lovers.

    How to transfer PDF to iPad?

    After the hilarious launching of iPad, the world is talking about iPad. So are people around me. Many friends ask me one question—how to transfer PDF to iPad? They ask because they use iPad to read eBooks. However, they can't download PDF files through Safari or transfer their local PDF files to iPad for reading. Maybe many iPad users have the same problem. So here I want to show you 2 methods to transfer PDF to iPad for eBook reading. These 2 methods also suitable for transferring PDF to the new released iPad 2.

    Method 1 Transfer PDF to iPad directly via iTunes 10
    You can transfer PDF to iPad directly via iTunes 10 now within 3 steps.
    1. add PDFs to your iTunes library
    2. connect your iPad to your PC
    3. Sync PDF to your iPad

    However, there may be some questions for me: Firstly, I have to update my applications to iTunes 10 and iBooks 1.1 or later. Secondly, The PDF contents in iPad are un-reflowable. The reading experience is poor.

    Method 2 Convert PDF to EPUB and sync it to iPad via iTunes
    No doubt that EPUB format files have better reading experience compared to fixed PDF documents. Because it not only can adjust its text display for iPad screen in an optimized way, but also is a compatible format for iTunes and iBooks of any version.

    In this approach, I just need to convert my eBooks format from PDF to EPUB by the specific AnyBizSoft PDF to EPUB Conversion Software. According to different Operating System, I can select PDF to EPUB Converter (for Windows) and PDF to EPUB for Mac. Each of the software enables you transfers your eBooks from PDF to EPUB in batches.

    Smile Convert PDF to Epub

    For iBooks and it's free. If you install it and are unable to find the app, restart your iPad and then it will show up. I had this problem and after doing some searches in google it seems to be a common problem but works great after that.
    Here is the tutorial for How to Convert PDF to Epub for iPad.
    Simply a click the PDF file has been converted to Epub. Then you can sync the Epub files to your iDevice via itunes.
    Hope it can do you a favor.

    As mentioned, iBooks can handle PDFs. Drag and drop the desired PDFs into iTunes and then sync with your iPad.
    Some people have reported iBooks crashing shortly after opening large PDFs with iBooks. It was suggested that a reset of the iDevice to resolve that issue.
    Personally, I haven't any large PDFs so I can't vouch for the resolution method above.

    You can read PDFs via the iBooks App available free on the App Store.
    Additionally, I use the program PDF Reader Pro for PDFs, Word Documents, etc.
    Might be worth a shot. (There is a free version)

    Why would u want to make a PDF into an ePub using free software? Why not just keep it in it’s semi crappy PDF format a and save your self some hassle and time if u going to go the free or any other type of software route. Unless it was a book or a file u where hopping to sell on a eBook store in which case I would recommend doing a Manuel conversion my friend meaning u manually code in the formatting, or what I do is use a company that does it fairly fairly cheep and has very high quality results so u don't have to learn all that programing and can focus on writing more book's =)

    Which included a link to sell him on some worthless crap.. He wanted to transfer it so it could be used on his Ipad.. whats wrong with that? Your post didnt help with anything and you wasted everyone's time that read this, and now more of my time to even respond to your idiocy.. you have 2 posts here.. and nothing to do about gaming. you not being around wouldnt hurt anyone.. The only embarrassment should come you and your bipolar remark.
