    I've been waiting for a .chm reader (like iCHM) to show up on the iPad as well.

    However in the meantime, I discovered what I consider to be an acceptable alternative -- use Calibre to convert your chm files to epub for use in iBooks. For the most part it does an excellent job, although some of my converted books did have a few formatting anomalies requiring tweaking with Sigil. (both Calibre and Sigil are freeware desktop apps used to convert/edit ebooks)

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your suggestion, I will try.

    Now I found some PDF books as the same as my chm books:)

    Your post is like the many posts that say nothing but tell the asker that they should look themselves. Your post is a wasted post because this is not what the asker was looking for. The Asker was looking for a program that you did not know about apparently and just decided to make a wasted post.... a useless post a nothing post.

    To answer the post that you apparently did not no the answer for

    Does anyone have any other CHM to PDF conversion tips. I have tried Calibre and for some reason it won't even let my view my CHM doc. Besides using a CHM viewer and printing to PDF all 600+ pages separately are there any other possible solutions?

    I ran into the same problem. I tried using iChm and Calibre, and both would only convert like the first 4 pages of a CHM.

    Doh!
