Downloading an ebook
You can always download an ebook in the Succinctly series for future reference. You can download any ebook in the following formats:
Each format has its own advantages when reading the ebook.
Viewing in PDF format
PDF presents the document content in the same manner across all devices. You can use Adobe Reader, browsers, and other PDF viewers to open and read a PDF document.
The primary problem with the PDF format is that it presents the document in the same manner on all devices, which might not be comfortable when reading the ebook on mobile devices. So, we also provide the ebooks in the following reader-friendly formats, MOBI and EPUB.
Viewing in MOBI format
MOBI is an ebook format used by Kindle devices and the Kindle app. You can download the MOBI format of our ebooks and load them on your Kindle or on the Kindle app for Android and iOS devices. To read a MOBI-format book on your Android device, follow these steps:
- Download and install the Kindle app from Google Play for Android.
- Open the Kindle app and tap on the More button in the bottom right corner.
- Select Settings in the next window.
- Select Local File Access.
- You can select the Documents folder or add some other folder on your device where your MOBI file is stored.
- The MOBI files in the selected folder will be displayed in the From Your Library section on the home page of the Kindle app. Refer to the screenshot in step two, where the MonoGame Role-Playing Game Development Succinctly ebook was loaded in MOBI format.
The process is slightly different for iOS devices. Download the Kindle app from the App Store for iOS. Then, you can send a MOBI file to the Kindle app from the Files app on the device where you have downloaded the ebook file, or you can download the MOBI file to the Kindle app from your email.
Viewing in EPUB format
EPUB is another ebook format that is used by many other types of ebook reader devices and apps. To open EPUB format files on Android devices, install Google Play Books on your device.
Tap on the downloaded EPUB files and choose the Play Books app. That’s it; you can start reading the ebook right away.
To read EPUB-format files on MacBook, iPhone, and iPad, you can use the Apple Books or Calibre apps.
