I've just purchased an e-book from an online retailer, to read on my iPad 2. The store indicates I must download ADE2 in order to access the book. The store indicates further that this is compatible with iPad 2. Imagine my irritation when, in endeavouring to do so, Safari tells me it cannot open the file. I've read the responses to similar questions in this forum. Reference to the suggested link is no help at all, as iPad is not listed as a compatible device. Does this mean that e-books locked up with ADE2 cannot be read on iPad or iPhone? Is there no solution?
Install the Bluefire app on the iPad/iPhone and authorize it with your Adobe ID.
There are other apps too, but Bluefire seems to give the least awkwardness; others sometimes have authorization issues.
I can't remember right now if Bluefire can open the .acsm token file and download the real DRM .epub/.pdf.
A useful link posted the other day does show some iPad compatible apps: http:/blogs.adobe.com/digitalpublishing/supported-devices
Search for both iPad and ios.
