Digital Editions

Adobe Systems, Inc. (Freeware)

Digital Editions is an eBook reader program for managing digital publications. With this program, users can download or purchase digital content from the Internet and manage their libraries. The simple interface is created especially for viewing books, PDF files, and digital newspapers. Files can be displayed in a single page, double-page, or fit-to-view. Users can also specify a custom fit. Apart from these, users have the option to add bookmarks, add annotations to the pages, highlight texts, and add comments for reference. The program supports PDF/A and EPUB.

All digital publications can be organized in Library View. With a growing collection, users can organize content by author, title, or publisher. Bookshelves can be created for better management of the publications, too. Digital publications can be accessed and managed on different devices by using an Adobe ID. Signing up for an Adobe ID is free. With the Adobe account, users have access to product extensions, trial downloads and community areas. Up to six devices can be authorized for accessing content on the Digital Editions application.

Digital Editions runs on laptops, desktops, and the Sony Reader. The program is an RIA (Rich Internet Application) so users always have the latest versions and updates installed.
