Are there any other software that does allow you to open mobi files?
Kindle for iPad can open .mobi files if they have no DRM (or if they have Amazon's DRM). So the first thing you would need to do is remove the DRM on the files you have. Then you should be able to open them with the Kindle app, or you could also convert them to ePub using Calibre, to read them with iBooks or BlueFire Reader for example.
