Use Bluefire app to read Adobe DRM ebooks on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

There is a growing number of ebookstores which use Adobe DRM system to protect their books, naming only Kobo, Barnes & Noble’s Nook Store or Sony Ebookstore – and many other ebookstores in different countries. You can handle all of them with a single application.

The application is Bluefire Reader and you can open with it ePub or pdf files – either DRM-free or protected with Adobe CS4.

Here’s how to do it.

1. Download and authorize Adobe Digital Editions

If you don’t have Digital Editions, an Adobe application to handle e-books on your computer, download it from here. Then go to this page and get your Adobe ID. It’s simple, just sign in with your email and password. Then go to Digital Editions again and authorize it with new Adobe ID credentials. Since that time any book added to this application is associated with this specific Adobe ID number.

2. Download and authorize Bluefire Reader

Go to AppStore and download Bluefire Reader. When you open the app, you’ll be asked to authorize it. Fill in your Adobe ID. Important: the ID for your Adobe Digital Editions and Bluefire Reader has to be the same.

3. Buy a book and download it to Digital Editions

Before you buy a book, check whether your e-bookstore is using Adobe DRM system. If yes, download a book to your computer or open directly with Adobe Digital Editions.

Now here is the most important part: the books protected with Adobe are stored in a special folder on your computer – you have to find it. Use search tool to locate “Digital Editions” folder. On a Mac computer the path is: User/Documents/Digital Editions/…

4. Add a file to Bluefire Reader

When you locate the right file, which is usually named with a title of a book, you can add it to Bluefire using one of those three ways.

Below there is screenshot of how a book bought at Kobo looks in Bluefire Reader.
