- Singletrack eBook – Beta
It does what it says on the tin, but since I’ve not yet read any of the other freebie iBook titles* I can’t see myself reading this either. It passes the “does it work” test though 🙂
I don’t yet “get” reading books on my iPhone.
*except the iPhone manual. With that in mind, maybe this is a good platform for more practical articles like your route guidesPosted 6 years ago
The Kindle version is a little less slick in terms of getting it on to your device (unless you are using the Kindle app on the iPhone/iPad in which case you just download it on your device and it pops up in the right app)
So this url should be downloaded to your PC/Mac/Lapptop whatever. Clicking it won;t make it automatically appear on your Kindle like a purchased book would.
So instead, plug your Kindle into your computer and wait for it to appear as a remote drive/directory.
On your Kindle are various folders, one of which is called ‘documents’.
Drop this file into that folder and away you go.
Like I said, if you have the Kindle app on your iPhone or iPad you can try it using that. Just cut and paste that url into a browser window on your device and it sorts itself out 🙂
Our plans are to do more of this kind of Collection type book. I’m currently working on a book of all our early Armchair features from the first few years of the mag. But I’m also working on a book version of each issue. Probably just the wordy stuff ie. no grinder reviews etc.
A specific ePub version of the route guides could a great idea. Thanks Tortoise 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Premier users with an iPhone/iPad may be interested in this..
It’s early days and we are still testing and trying stuff out but we are planning more ‘multi-platform’ launches..
So if you have the iBooks app then try this.
1 – Make sure you are logged in to your Premier account on your iPhone/iPad
2 – Copy this url (DON’T CLICK )and then navigate to the Mag Archive using said iPhone/iPad
3 – Paste the URL into your browser and ‘enter’
4 – Choose ‘Open in iBooks’
5 – Let us know what you think 🙂
Premier users with a Kindle… you are next 🙂
Any new eBooks and Kindle issues will be free to ALL Premier users BTW.Posted 6 years ago
Non-Premier users will be able to buy books from Amazon.
I’ve just signed us up to the periodical Beta programme with Amazon. That’s next weeks research.
Issue 66 is iPad compatible in Pageflip format. We’ve just upgraded the software and all future issues will work on iPad without having to download the PDF. All back issues are having PDF files optimised and there will be two versions of the PDF Hi Res and Low res. The Hi res will be considerably smaller than the existing ones.
So far I’ve upgraded issues 60 – 66. The rest of the mag archive will be upgraded over the coming weeks, especially when our work experience lad is here for two weeks in July 🙂Posted 6 years ago
I downloaded the file then converted the file on my computer using calibre to the kindle format (.mobi). I then moved the file into the kindle folder on my phone.
The original file also works on my wife’s Sony reader.
Really good idea making things into kindle format and looking forward to more publications.Posted 6 years agojohnSubscriber
The kindle .prc file works on the android kindle app for me (android 2.2, kindle 3.0.1). Downloaded it on the phone browser, moved the file from the browser download directory to the kindle folder, and it appeared in the app. No conversion or PC needed. Blades2000 – you weren’t converting the epub file rather than the kindle file were you?Posted 6 years ago
Easier way to transfer it to your Kindle without having to plug it into your PC or whatever..
When you set up your Kindle you will be issued a unique Kindle email address of the form <usernamegubbins>@kindle.com
To get a book onto your Kindle you can attach the file to an email and send it to your Kindle email address.
Then on your Kindle click Menu and ‘Sync & Check for Items’
That should do the trick 🙂Posted 6 years agojeffcapeshopMember
re kindle email address, if you use <usernamegubbins>@free.kindle.com ir will wait until you’re in wifi range before sending it, otherwise it will send it via 3g and you’ll be charged. (assuming you have the 3g version)
also has to come from an address confirmed on your kindle account.Posted 6 years ago
