Travelfish on kindle

Posted by Phiddy on 8/12/2011 at 17:34

Are the travelfish guides available to download onto a kindle? It would be super fantastic if they were but I'm assuming not..? I'm probably not the first to say this but if not they really should be !

No, you're not the first to suggest it! :-/

And the answer is No, they're not available. I spent a bit of time earlier this year playing with different conversion programs to convert the PDF into MOBI and PUB formats but didn't find a solution that I was happy with. (The pages that were multi-columned didn't convert well.)

What say you Somtam? I hope the recent theft of the Kindle doesn't stop progress!

We will be adding Kindle support in 2012. First I have to replace the Kindle that was stolen last week.

This was what I suspected, are we talking early or late 2012? I guess I'll just check back when I'm in SEA.

Sorry to hear about the stolen kindle :( I know what it's like, I used to read all my books on my iPhone and I was pretty devastated when that was stolen a while back and I lost all my ebooks and pics that I (stupidly) hadn't synced
