Tips: Though iBooks supports PDF format now, but considering the small screen of iPhone and iPod Touch, it is not very convenient to read PDF eBooks on the devices, because you have to drag the scroll bar from left to right each time to read a line of text in a single page from one PDF eBook. So here comes the EPUB. EPUB is designed for reflowable content, meaning that the text display can be optimized for the particular display device. That means, EPUB eBooks can adjust the screen size of your devices automatically, so you don't need to drag for reading your eBooks anymore!
