    I'll just add that we're also working on offering our manuals for sale on the Kindle and in the iPhone-compatible iOS format, so stay tuned!

    iBooks on the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad has native PDF support. If you would rather have it in epub format, which displays considerably nicer on the smaller of the devices, there are several programs and services that will convert PDF to epub, but Calibre seems to be the most popular.

    Dana,

    the MakeUseOf Guides are PDF files.

    To view PDF files on your Kindle, you can connect your Kindle to your computer via its USB cable. It will be recognized as external device and you can transfer the PDF from your computer to the Kindle.

    The newer Kindle has native PDF support. If you find that this isn't the case on your device, you can update the firmware.

    As for the iBook, are you sure you mean the Mac iBook or do you mean the iPad? The iBook is a Mac computer, so you can use a PDF reader for the Mac and open the files like on any other computer.

    If your question is about the iPad, check out this article:
