PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

MOBI eBook Format

MOBI Converter

The MOBI ebook format was developed by the French company Mobipocket in 2000. MOBI files were intended to be used on mobile phones, computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs), which were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s before the arrival of smartphones. Unlike EPUB files, MOBI files were protected by Digital Rights Management, making it harder for the contents to be copied and shared.

Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005. The company retired the MOBI format and support for it in 2016 after developing the AZW and AZW3 formats for the Kindle. However, you can still read MOBI files on Kindle devices and with the Calibre ebook application. You can also get specific MOBI-reader software. If you use an ereader that doesn’t recognise MOBI files, you may need to use a tool like Zamzar to convert them into another format like EPUB.
