Unhappy Torch reading .pdf or .pdb??

Please Login to Remove!

I have quite a few ebooks and books on my laptop that I'd like to read on-the-go and was wondering if there is any reader that I could use to open .pdf or if I convert my .pdf files to .pdb or files on my Torch... I've tried Barnes & Nobles, Kindle & Wattpad but all of those only allow you to read books that have been downloaded from them... Any help would be great!! Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Torch reading .pdf or .pdb??

I receive .PDF files all the time but to be honest I would not like to use the BB for reading books etc.
The screen is way to small. Another issue is a reported problem when exiting a .pdf file with graphics. The virtual keyboard will at first display as a blank window. Once the user begins typing, the letters will appear, but are missing the outlines and the return symbol. The Number and Symbol views are also impacted. Typically, only portrait or landscape view of the virtual keyboard is impacted if only one view was used in PDF To Go. The actual function of each key still works as expected.
Depending on the size of the book, I download them as audio files.

I mobipocket reader and repligo are possible choices you have. Developers of these apps also have a windows setup file that are used to convert pdf files to for the phone.
