Guide to Reading Fanfic on Your Mobile Device

Updated June 2011 – with FLAG webservice now being able to convert Twilighted.net stories I’ve updated the individual device sections as well.

This info is for reading fanfiction offline eg. saved to your device to read when not connected to the internet.

Information will be for fanfiction.net and also twilighted.net.

It is an assumption that all the devices below can read PDF files. However, you usually can’t adjust the font size or jump between chapters easily on PDFs. There are better formats for each specific device and I’ll walk you through how to make each one.

Preface – I use an iPhone and iPad. I do not own the other devices but this is info I’ve learned from researching mobile ebook reading online for some time. Comments or corrections are welcome.
