The Adobe Digital Editions program manages documents and e-books, which allows you to organize and classify the contents, in order to facilitate their search and to facilitate access to them, besides synchronizing them between several PCs or devices.
From the application it is possible to search and download books, magazines and other free digital publications from various sites, with the possibility to read them directly, without having to resort to external readers (such as Acrobat Reader), and to add them to the virtual library. Access to an Adobe page where you can find novels and books to download for free.
Typically, papers, documents and books are available in PDF format supported by Digital Editions as well as EPUB and other less widely used formats.
We have already presented a software similar to this, called Caliber, which is very complete since it offers many tools to organize and categorize the collection of books and publications. Digital Editions offers some of these functions, for example: add notes, perform searches, mark pages, create lists of favorites, and so on; But is more modest in terms of conversion and synchronization options. The Adobe program is notable for having a more simple and attractive interface, and is easier to use, while Caliber presents an interface similar to that of iTunes. You can combine both programs and leave Caliber as an organizer, and the latter to buy and download PDF or EPUB books (with or without DRM protection).
In case of using this program to buy electronic books will be necessary to register during the installation of the same, and to obtain an account ID of Adobe. This has as main benefit the possibility of transferring books that are protected with DRM to other PCs and mobile devices. This method allows the purchase of content at major e-book stores.
Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 is the latest version of this software available for Windows and Mac.
