Open EPUB File

EPUB is a format and, at the same time, a file extension that is mainly used for e-books.

The term is an acronym for Electronic Publication. EPUB allows the data and information contained in the e-book to be read and distributed by users and is supported by many e-book readers, both software and hardware.

In terms of software, EPUB files are compatible with most smart devices, tablets and computers.

Users can read e-books and other digital publications thanks to the Epub file extension and it also allows accessing and reading e-books on other devices such as e-book readers, cell phones, iPads, among others.

There is the possibility of creating PDF from EPUB files, in case you do not have a reading software installed for this type of files.

EPUB is a technical standard published by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). It became an official IDPF standard in September 2007, replacing the old Open eBook standard.

One of the advantages of the EPUB format is that there are two types of layout: fixed and variable.

With the following programs, you can read, create and edit the EPUB files:
