Is there a way to read Sony ebooks on Ipad?

I know, both devices embrace the EPUB format. When I have purchased a book, it shouldn't matter where I read it, especially as now Sony has software to read its books on a PC as well as a Mac, not just on a Sony device. Now that I have an iPad and a library of many Sony books, what cant I do? Is Sony working on an iPad app?

Here's some info on the Sony iPad app that was coming soon...

Sony ePub's use standard Adobe ID based Adept DRM so you should be able to read those books in either Bluefire or Txtr I'd think.

I'm trying txtr. I've created an account and uploaded two books. However, I get an error message on my iPad (and my Android phone, for that matter) when I try to open them up after they have seemingly downloaded them. I got an Adobe ID for that's worth.

Anyone can help me?

I have opened up a txtr account and uploaded two books. I downloaded the txtr app to my iPad and entered my username and passwords for both txtr and Adobe under settings. When I open the app, I see the books in my library, but when I try to read them, I'm told it "could not load document."

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

I do not know what happened to you, but my wife did this today and everything worked like a charm. We both have both devices. I have currently decided that the iPad is too heavy for long reading sessions. She likes it so far. Txtr seems to be a solution that works, at least for some people.
