 Beta: First epub "esermon" published for testing on SermonIndex

Saints,

As I mentioned earlier we are going to be slowly testing and releasing ebooks on SermonIndex in the epub format to start with. Epub format is useable and readable on the iPad, ibooks, any mobile phone with the right app, and also the Kobo device and many other eReader devices.

We are going to be offering "all" the ebooks 100% free as all the other content on SermonIndex.net Please download this epub file and add it to your device and application and let us know how your experience is.

Right now we will be releasing 2 different types of epub files: 1) eSermons - which will a single article or sermon message. 2) eBooks - which will be a full book with all the chapters.

The below example is a "eSermon" collection file:

Choosing Not To Return by K.P. Yohannan

 Re: Beta: First epub "esermon" published for testing on SermonIndex

This is a great idea and especially useful for those with tablet and handheld devices. It would be great to be able to have all the articles available in this format too as reading the PDF versions on smaller screens often requires a lot of panning due to the small font. As for the current rendering of the ePub on the iPhone, I think the message title is too large in relation to the text. I think, at most, it should be 50% larger than the message rather than the current proportion.

Blessings on you brother.

Dear Brother, the files will work on the following devices on this page below, which is virtually all of them. For instance to get it on the iPhone, iPad etc you just simply drag the .epub file to iTunes and that will make it available to read in the ibooks app.
http://www.epubbooks.com/ebook-readers

You can download the kobo app freely here: http://www.kobobooks.com/smartphones

And there are many other apps for each device that reads epubs! hope that helps.

Thanks for your feedback and we will consider changing the title size. We welcome any other feedback and thoughts on this as people try them on different devices.

 Re:

The Calibre app is a great tool for converting between pdf, epub and the Kindle mobi formats. I use the Apple version quite a bit.

Greg,

Are you considering making the same sermons available for Kindle?

Brother, at this point we are just doing epub files but will look into doing the kindle format afterwards.
