Amazon’s Kindle Reader software is available on Mac & PC, Android and iOS devices. If you’ve purchased an eBook to one device, here’s how to download it again to another – no repurchase necessary. With Kindle on iOS, you generally use the Audible app. I expected Apple’s audiobooks to be very expensive as I remembered from a few years back, but to my surprise, they were all in line with.

While many may argue, e-books have some advantages over traditional books. One of these high-points is their flexibility: they can be read on the PC or laptop when you’re at home, or on an e-reader, tablet or smartphone when you’re on the road. Thus, hundreds of books can be carried at the same time without feeling like you’re dragging rocks.

Kindle Previewer is a program that emulates the way e-book files are displayed on Kindle devices and applications. According to Amazon, the app goes hand in hand with an e-book creation tool and seeks to enable users to view how their books look like and if they need additional work done.

The software has a clean interface that is easy to figure out, thanks to its intuitive layout. It can open file formats such as AZW, MOBI, PRC and even EPUB, despite the fact that Kindle e-readers don’t support this format.

The program lets you “rotate” the screen and change the font size. Furthermore, the app can emulate any of the available devices, such as Kindle, Kindle DX, Kindle for iPhone and Kindle for iPad. It’s also possible to choose a custom format, which frees up the interface’s edges and lets you stretch it to any size you want.

Kindle Previewer comes with a few extra buttons that enable you to get straight to the book’s cover, to the table of content or access the NCX view.

The software also comes with a set of keyboard shortcuts, so the mouse isn’t necessary to navigate the book. Thus, pressing the left and right arrow keys takes you to the previous and next pages, while the Ctrl+Left/Right key combination takes you to the nearby sections.

If you download an eBook from an online ebook store, and you want to read the book on your Kindle eReader, the resolution is to convert acsm to Kindle. You would ask why and how to do it. Don't worry. You will get the comprehensive answer in this article.

To read acsm on a Kindle, follow these 4 steps.

Step 1 Using Adobe Digital Editions to open your ACSM files.

Step 2 Once opened, the ACSM will be saved as ePub or PDF.

Step 3 Remove DRM from the ACSM.

Step 4 Convert ACSM to Kindle supported format.

The following 4 parts will address all your questions.

Part 1: What's an ACSM File

After you purchase an eBook online from the public library or a private bookseller, you can download it to have a look.

However, typically the downloaded file uses an .acsm suffix. In other words, the majority of the books you got from online stores are in ACSM format.

You may be confused about this file type since the acsm is not your actual eBook. It's actually a download link to your eBook.

Part 2: How to Open with ACSM File

ACSM stands for Adobe Content Server Manager. This name suggests that Adobe manages the downloading of the ACSM file.

I would recommend using Adobe program Adobe Digital Editions to open your acsm file. It's also the best acsm ebook reader.

Step 1, create an Adobe account and authorize it.

Step 2, run ADE program and open acsm with it.

Double click acsm file and ADE will automatically start downloading your book as PDF or ePub, which is the actual eBook you purchased.

Step 3, read acsm file in ADE. (how to read books on ADE)


ACSM doesn't allow us to reproduce and transfer, and it can only be used on the computer where you have downloaded the books. So I can't stress this enough: Before you buy Adobe ebooks, whether PDF or ePub, please install the Adobe Digital Editions. Only by using this software you can open the acsm file and read it on your computer.

The details are referred to at these links:

Part 3: How to Add ACSM File to Kindle

As previously explained the ACSM file can only be opened with ADE on your PC. If you try to open this file with any application such as Kindle for PC rather than ADE, it will issue an error message.

This is because once we download an acsm file and open it with ADE, the acsm file will be associated to ADE (Adobe Adept DRM). There is no compatibility with Kindle or iPad. Even worse, if we want to read acsm on Kindle, there is another problem we have to solve besides the DRM protection. It's the format limitation. This is because the Kindle only supports its own format such as AZW3, AZW, MOBI, PRC, TPZ but not the common ePub or PDF.

So here you may find the key to resolve your problem to read acsm on Kindle: Remove Adobe DRM and convert ACSM to Kindle format.

By following the steps below and installing Epubor Ultimate. It is the best DRM Removal + eBook Converter.

1Install Epubor Ultimate.
