Books on iPad
 
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.

Thanks for any help.

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.

Thanks, Jim. Successfully downloaded a book, uploaded it to my iPad and am able to view it there.

GoodReader
 
I use an iPad app called GoodReader for reading Wrox and other pdf's. It works well, is inexpensive and connects at least to the Mac very easily, allowing file movements in Finder.

Which i Pad is best for reading books and PDF files ... i wanna purchase a i Pad. Can anybody have some suggestions???

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.
