Web2Book - Pack Web Pages to iBooks epub Book
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Enjoy reading book in iBooks, Stanza or GoodReader? Get frustrated in viewing complex web pages? Web2Book help you pack web pages into a much more readable book!
Why to do this? Because in most cases what you need are content of these web pages, not their beautiful but complex format, which undermines user experience dramatically on ipod/iphone/iphone4/ipad/ipad.
One of other advantages of packing web pages into a book is related to network. Network is not always available, once you pack the interesting web pages into a book, you'll never care about network availability.
Another advantage is you needn't care about book source. If you're Stanza user, for instance, you know this is a big matter. But if you can create a book by yourself easily, the matter will not be a matter.
Web2Book is a tool helping you pack web pages into a book, with it you can:
- browse web pages with embedded web browser, and download them as you want (supports resuming broken transfer)
- WYSIWYG: to add/remove a link into/from new book, what you need is click it. Link is highlighted to indicate it's added into new book.
- edit links in article list. each added link is a chapter displayed in article list, and you can change the list by analyzing URL prefix, filtering and deleting.
- adjust downloading speed by set connection number to download chapters, and spaces at the beginning of each paragraph.
- customize article content to create "clean" book - no AD, no useless text/links...
- Send/receive files to/from your Dropbox or your computer.
- orgnanize your books either on your device or from browser of your PC/notebook.
- view books you created in iBooks or other epub book reader installed in your device
- access contextual help everywhere.
The book created by Web2Book is of epub format, so you must install a epub book reader, iBooks is highly recommended.

A tool to "grab" and "go"
Not intuitive, but as I get the hang of how it, I find it’s a handy tool to grab the text of web page so that I can read articles while I’m on the road. It’s too bad it doesn’t grab style sheet, pictures, etc., but it’s good at what it does.
Requires TOC web page
I was hoping to be able to add multiple web pages to create an ePub. However, it will only allow you to specify a TOC page with links to the pages you want. If there isn't a list of links on a single web page, you are out of luck.
It did work, kinda
I wanted to plug a web page into iBooks as a reference so bought this app. It did the job but it wasn't easy. The app had much trouble loading the page but eventually it worked.
