Long may they refrain from doing so . Adding KFX support to K4PC would mean switching to the considerably more tedious "Download and transfer via USB" method of adding Kindle books to Calibre, which would be an irritation.

I think we make a much bigger deal about the differences in file format than Amazon does. The folks I talked to called it KF8.

Slight difference? In my experience, AZK on iOS is KF7 with multimedia added. There's no support for even basic things like fonts, much less proper formatting.

Yeah, Apple has gone out of its way to screw Amazon and vice versa. Frankly, as a user, it makes me want to tell both companies what they can do with themselves.

And this is coming from somebody who worked at the fruit company for almost 13 years (until a couple years ago). I'm fed up with Apple's childishness *and* Amazon's.

Actually, (yes but) I meant what happened after that. After Amazon told them to bite their bums, and loosed the in-browser Cloud reader. Since then, hoooo, boy, they've been really at loggerheads.

While I have had issues with both, I've found Apple far, far more childish. Nor do I care for their attitude, about almost anything. Yes, they were smart. Yes, they figured out that people cared more about being cool, than understanding the tech, or even having access into the tech. But I feel that they've contributed to the same mindset that cellphones have--"oh, I don't need to know how to do X, I have a PHONE!," (ditto knowing how anything works on a computer). And I can't warm up to any company that abandons OSes and hardware, etc. willy-nilly and screw the consumer that's spent money with them. {shrug}

(Reminds me of the idiocy, 6 years back, when they wouldn't publish a client's book, because OUR company name was on the copyright page. Why? Because the word "NOOK" was in it. No, you can't make that s**t up. Or refused to publish client Holly Lisle's book, about self-publishing, because she had a section about...Amazon. AFTER she blogged about their idiocy, to her tens of thousands of followers, suddenly, Apple announced that it was a "software glitch" that stopped her book. I guess the 3 people she spoke to before the blog posts didn't exist.)

At LEAST Amazon has to my experience been wildly responsive to its authors, and to its consumers. You can return stuff to Amazon with almost any lame excuse; and authors can ask for help with pretty much everything. Can't complain about that, if naught else. (And believe me, I've had my own individual issues with them, Prime, and the bloody *&^%$#@! Post Office subbing by FedEx, hoooo, yes, I have.)

The formats are entirely different. The book data itself is the same of course but the way the formatting is done is totally differently. AZK is json objects, no HTML at all period. KF8 is HTML with CSS etc. KF7 is HTML without CSS. For the difference see our wiki.

hey is there a way to convert KDF files created using Kindle create application to KFX or anyother format readable on my IPad...

I used kindle create app to convert my PDF Fixed layout to KDF(which supports Highlighting and text selection) with some manual table of contents and I obviously don't want to publish that, so is there a way to side load that in any format and read on my IPAD

I have a KDF file is there a way to sideload it to my kindle app in IPAD
