So how come this topic is OK, but a topic discussing Installous (which does have a very legitimate 'try before you buy' aspect) is a big NO NO. Hypocrites!
PS> I'm fussing about this because I think we should be allowed to openly discuss Installous. It really does have legitimate uses. Until Apple actually allows a proper trial system, Installous is the only solution. I've used it to decide amongst the 10+ different Office Suite apps and eventually paid for the one I found fit my needs. I would have to pay almost $100 to do this legitimately, or just settle for a subpar product. I've also used to it wade through piles of garbage apps that are not worth a penny.

Calibre is the best option for converting....but for PDF just import directly into iTunes then sync.
I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.
I consider if the magazines are not available in your country as a hard copy it's not illegal downloading them from a site like magazines download.
Copyright law varies from one country to the other, this is why some emagazines are not available outside the States. You can say that it might not be illegal to download in your country but I doubt that. Those magazines belong to those who publish them.
Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...
