Q. I’m using Axis 360 and I see options for the Axis 360 format or the EPUB format. Which do I choose?
The Axis 360 Read Now format is available for approximately 90% of the eBooks in Axis 360. In general, we recommend this format whenever possible for the smoothest experience. Choose this format when available for eBooks when using your Axis 360 on your smartphone, tablet, or Kindle Fire device so you can read the eBook directly in the Axis 360 app.
The Axis 360 format also works in desktop and laptop browsers where you can stream or download the eBook. If you bookmark the eBook and select Offline reading, you can download the eBook to your browser's cache and read when not connected to the Internet.
When you download an eBook in the ePub format, you will need the Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) program to read it. To read this eBook, you must authorize your copy of ADE with an Adobe ID. You can sign up for an Adobe ID here and follow these instructions to authorize your copy of ADE.
After doing so, download the ePub (which will be a .acsm file), open it with ADE, and enjoy the eBook.
If you have any further questions, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you further.
