    $49 ??? you are joking right?

    http://www.epub2go.com/Web/default.aspx >>> here you can do it for free. Sorry.

    • Joe Hackman

      To be frank, this free online service does the conversion job well while has several drawbacks that push me take AnyBizSoft product into consideration.
      1. Unable to keep my PDFs confidential after upload online
      2. Only convert one PDF files per time
      3. The conversion result is far from acceptable sometimes

      Since I often have numerous PDFs and some of them are encrypted ones to convert each time, this PDF to EPUB tool is a better choice as it supports converting 50 files in batch and partial of them. Besides, the conversion result is excellent so far as I saw, better than free online serview.

      However, I also agree with you that the original price $49.95 is too high to afford. Thanks to Macappstorm for kind enough to offer the special discount.

        Have you tried Calibre? http://calibre-ebook.com/

        It is more than a conversion tool. It is an eBook management program that converts from/to various formats. And it is free (as in speech and as in beer).

  • http://dear-apple.com Dear Apple

    I’d like some comparison with Calibre (which is actually free). But keep in mind that iBookstore in other countries is represented by only low-quality converts probably made with utilities like these, so don’t expect miracles anyway:

    I will always vote for Calibre, reason being that it’s free and there’s a lot you can do with it, just as Jorge mentioned!

  • DeusExMachina
  • Brian

    Calibre’s conversion is pretty horrible, so I’ll look forward to seeing what I can do with this.

    • Dicey

      Calibre is great! If it’s a low quality convert, then the original file must’ve either been screwed up, or someone didn’t know what they’re doing.

      Ala, the base format you’ll want is .html. A perfectly formatted .html will be converted by Calibre into a perfectly formatted .epub.

      Even better, if you’re unsure about the .html, but you do have a .lit (and I’ve never seen a poorly formatted .lit in the wilds for some odd reason), Calibre will convert them to .epubs perfectly.

      Agreed about pdf, but I’m sure this has the same problem and that the reviewer was just lucky. Some pdfs convert fine for me, others don’t. PDF is a crappy format that only Adobe supports well (and confusingly at times).

  • Lee

    I’ve tried two pdf books and both converted terribly with the AnyBizsSoft converter. There are no options to reflow, tweak or edit. I think Calibre is slightly better but not by much. I figured Calibre + Sigil is the best way. Especially since both are free.

    I’m glad that I could try it before spending $50 or even $30.

    I don’t believe that what you are asking for is possible. ePub is a superset of HTML. It allows links to other text and graphics files. PDF is a proper subset of PostScript. It is a flat-file format. For the time being, let us put aside the fact that Adobe has managed to get the pig to dance.

    You want things to look nice. You cannot turn your dancing pig into a prancing gazelle without some work. This means that you must edit your ePub files that you convert from PDF. You may have to tweak them for accuracy as well as for formatting.

    Now to your question. The respected Mac shareware site, MacUpdater.com, lists 24 ePub-related software titles. Several of these perform PDF to ePub conversion. The best rated converter is PDF Converter(http://www.pdf-file-converter.com). It is available at the Mac App Store.

    Among the other ePub utilities listed by MacUpdate.com is a suite from Sixty Four, LLC. You may find that these utilities will help you to perform the necessary checks and and edits of your converted ePub files.
