PDF to ePUB/Mobi Converter can transform your PDF files into flexible EPUB and Kindle-based e-books. The program is simple and easy to use, with a clear one-window interface - suitable for all types of users - and a very short list of conversion settings. Its support for batch conversion allows you to produce large amounts of EPUB and MOBI files in one single operation.
Designed specifically as a closed format for printing houses, PDF is probably the least user-friendly type of file that you can add to your e-book collection. In most cases, your e-book reader will show you full pages of the PDF document, making them almost unreadable in their tiny screens. By converting your PDFs into EPUB or MOBI files, you will be able to make use of one of e-books’ main assets – reflowable text. This will allow you to change the font (when available) and its size, and to perform text searches within the book. PDF to ePUB/Mobi Converter seems to have been designed with non-techy users in mind. Except for some basic output settings (available only when you select EPUB as the output format), this easy-to-use application can convert as many PDF files as required in one single operation. Regrettably, the output format selected (and its settings) will be applied to all the files in the conversion list, so you will need to launch one conversion process for your EPUB files and another one for your Kindle e-books.
Large files will take a while to load and longer to be converted, but the main thing is that the resulting EPUB or MOBI files look just as good as you can expect from any PDF to text conversion.
Developed by DiscoverySoft, it is distributed and sold by EBOOK-TOOL.COM (same company, different names?), which may be a bit confusing for those searching for this tool in the Net for the first time. To add to the confusion, the program’s site mentions that a version 2.6.2 is available for purchase, while 2.5.1 is actually the only build available for download. Leaving these minor – though confusing - flaws behind, PDF to ePUB/MOBI Converter can be a useful solution for those seeking for a bulk conversion tool capable of turning their static PDF documents into flexible and readable e-books without needing to know much about e-book publishing.
