    calibre

    Hi
    I have transferred two downloaded books to my playbook. When connected to my laptop my playbook shows the 2 books are there, however when I unplug the playbook I cannot find them. No Book icon. Could you advise where I would find these.
    Also will Calibre run on playbook, if so I could download this to my playbook and transfer my books and read via this.
    Many thanks
    Gnilwoc

    I believe it only works for transferring books to your PlayBook. The PlayBook does not have a native app that will open certain book files, and Kobo only works with certain file types as well. One option you have is to sideload a third party e-reader like Aldiko that will do the job.

    1.Download the app from here: e-Reader Apps for Android - Kindle Fire, Kobo Vox and Nook Color | Good e-Reader Android APP Store - Playbook App Market
    2.Follow our guide on how to install Android apps. It can be found here: http://www.blackberryos.com/playbook...-os-2-0-a.html

    Book Reader for Epub is my reader of choice. Excellent support from Igor the developer. Recommended!
