I would like to convert a PDF file to ePub format for reading it on an iPhone.

Is there an online/desktop tool that will allow me to do that?

    There are tools that will do this. Unfortunately, none of them will do it well. The PDF conversion process throws away all information not related to displaying the contained text on a page that is exactly 8.5*11. Getting a PDF to reflow nicely for any other page size is a nightmare of manual reformatting. PDF should ONLY BE USED FOR TAKING DOCUMENTS TO PRINT (sorry this is a pet-peeve of mine). – Fake Name Aug 18 '10 at 5:34

The quality of conversion will depend on how complicated and how well structured your PDF is but give the online service 2EPUB a try.


Don't bother with the paid solutions, Calibre is free and open source. Just used this to turn a bunch of docs to epub for ipads


so easy to do it's great.


Try Calibre. It has excellent support for converting pdf files to epub format.


Epub2Go allows conversion of PDF files from your desktop as well as on the web into ePub format.
