Sometimes you may want to read DjVu files on an iPad, but there doesn’t seem to be a DjVu reader especially made for iPad. Some may have Goodreader, Cloudreader and Pages but none states that they support the DjVu format.
Stanza is the only one shown in the App store that supports to read DjVu files for iPad, but it does not handle DjVu files natively, and the navigation of DjVu files on Stanza is not smooth. So, what is the best option for read DjVu files on iPad? Here in this article, I’ll show you how to read DjVu files on iPad smoothly by converting DjVu to PDF using a Mac and an Enolsoft DjVu Viewer for Mac.
About DjVu Format
The DjVu format is a computer file format designed primarily to store scanned documents, especially those containing a combination of text, line drawings, indexed color images, and photographs. It uses technologies such as image layer separation of text and background/images, progressive loading, arithmetic coding, and lossy compression for bitonal (monochrome) images. This allows for high-quality, readable images to be stored in a minimum of space, so that they can be made available on the web.
