I've been trying to figure out how to get eBooks without success. My goal is to get my library on my iPad. Can someone outline the steps/apps to do that?
First I downloaded Adobe Digital Editions to my Mac and activated it on my Adobe account. Next I downloaded TestSuccessful.acsm and double-clicked on it. ADE starts and gives this very helpful message: E_LIC_ALREADY_FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER
I am reluctant to purchase anything until I see what happens next. Does a pdf eventually get downloaded? If so, I know that can be read on the iPad.
Johnzonie: Sorry that our "requirements" page is confusing and causing you problem. We tacked the less restrictive Wrox requirements onto the end of the Wiley requirements. If you'll read: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Sectio...BOOK_COPY.html
you'll see that you don't need ADE to read our DRM-free ebooks and you should be able to read any Wrox DRM-free ebook on your iPad in the PDF reader application of your choice.
I think it amounts to personal preference. I like a smaller device (my go-to is the Android Nexus with a 7" screen) that's small enough to carry anywhere, but big enough to read any of our books on comfortably. Your trade off is screen shots are slightly smaller and code lines wrap a little more. If you feel you have to have something as large as a standard printed computer book page, a full size iPad is really the only way to go.
