Bluefire App Can Read Library eBooks for iPhone and iPad


Bluefire Reader

The Bluefire Reader app for iPad and iPhone has just been updated to add support for reading borrowed library ebooks through the Overdrive service.

Bluefire Reader is a free app that supports EPUB and PDF file formats, including Adobe DRM protected EPUB and PDF files.

Here’s the download link for the app on iTunes. And here’s the link for the directions on how to add library ebooks to the Bluefire app.

Unfortunately you cannot download library ebooks directly to the iPad/iPhone because you have to use a computer with an authorized version of Adobe Digital Editions on it—which is required for library ebooks. You then have to transfer the ebooks using Apple’s infamous middleman, iTunes.

  1. Actually, Bluefire Reader already has the features necessary to enable a more intuitive and simple process for downloading loaned library eBooks directly into Bluefire Reader right on iOS devices. We are hopeful that libraries will soon make the very minor changes required to offer their patrons this greater convenience.

  2. I have the adobe digital editions. How can i import from my Adobe digital editions to my ipad library?
