    Hey everyone,

    So i bought a book from amazon in kindle format since theres no drm or anything on there books. Im reading it on the kindle app for ipad but I was just curious if theres anyway I can get it on the ibooks app instead?

    Thanks :)

    Nope, that's why they are two different apps.

    That's not the case. Kindle books do have DRM. You'd have to find a way to remove it and convert to ePub.

    I just used the program the other day, but idk exactly what it was called. That, and I don't want to get hassled for discussing pirating ;)
    Edit: nvm, it's not pirating. Calibre maybe? I found it on the Google

    Yeah I didn't think it'd be piracy since i bought the book..I don't think i woulda posted about it then cuz Ive see how much heat people get for dumb posts lol

    Anyways i tried googling some stuff on it but it always reverted to articles about kindle vs iPad and stuff lol. I just want to see if id like the features in the ibook app more so than in the kindle app, and no im not gonna buy it again to do that.

    Calibre on its own doesn't do it you first have to remove the DRM. I have done this with 4 books and works great. I don't consider it piracy since I own a kindle and purchased the books.

    Yep, it's been a while and I'm still not banned, looks like it's not piracy ;)
    I would think it'd be the equivalent of ripping a movie to put on the iPad.
    Look into Python in regards to removing the DRM
