Convert PDF to EPUB without zipping
« on: April 28, 2014, 04:36 PM »
I didn't see a topic that seemed to help, so here goes.

I want to convert a few PDF files to EPUB so I can using them on my Google Books App. But I tried converting one using convertfile.com, and it zipped. How do I convert it without it zipping, or at the very least unzip it and read it?

Try Calibre  :-*

But PDf Conversion to Digital books are very Bad, since Pdf are like fixed and their flow is not easily converted into a Digital book
Rest it is best way to convert and provide a epub  :-*

But i think Google play book supports Pdf reading


and you can check here
if you want a decent PDf conversion

Personally, I wouldn't recommend converting a PDF file into a ePub as that often messes up the original presentation format of the eBook.

Thanks to both of you. I did take ninjumpers advice and use Calibre to convert the files. I understand why you would tell me not to, Dark Guyver, but as I do most of my reading on my phone, it's easier to use epub and a reading app than adobe. I know Google Play Books is supposed to be able to read and open pdfs but when I try and open a pdf file on my phone, it doesn't give me Google Play Books as an option of apps to choose from. On the plus side, I didn't notice any differences in presentation so far.
