Text or PDF or ebook reader for Nokia 6300

Hi,
I just got my 6300 and for the most part I'm pleased with it. I was hoping I could install some software on it to read text files I use for geocaching. I can convert these to pdf or prc or pdb or txt or doc or whatever format necessary but I've not been able to find s/w that will work on an S40 phone that will read any of these formats.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated - I've googled till my fingers bleed.

Wattpad is an excellent ebook reader and it is compatible with the Nokia 6300. I've used it myself and found it pretty easy to figure out.

Re: Text or PDF or ebook reader for Nokia 6300

Thanks for the encouragement. I had been getting 'File format not supported' but realised I was looking at rich text format files (.rtf). When I tried bluetoothing down a plain text file (.txt) it was visible but only the first, less than 3000, characters. It solves my problem though as I can just cut my bigger plain text file into lots of little ones. They are visible in the Organiser under Notes. Thanks again!

use pdf and try calibre.

 

The new version of ePub is out! it lets u put videos and sounds in the book and a few other complicated things in the book. the only problem is that putting this stuff in is very complicated programing u will need a Manuel conversion.  the free software just isn't going to cut it! i used  pdf to ebook they did  a really good job on my video book.

Hey I would try to avoid using just the tool's alone if u know any programing u could do the extra programing required your self. If not then try a Manuel converter that way the files can matinee the correct formatting and wont look like gibberish. I used a this site convert pdf to ebook
