    Hello. I purchased an ebook that provided two zip files. One is a Windows exe file that I realize isn't compatible. The other is a Mac .app file that is Mac's equivalent of exe. I can't find any App that will allow me to view it on my iPad2. Is it even possible?

    Thank you.

    No, I'm afraid it is not possible. The iPad (and other iOS devices) are not compatible with executables from any other OS; including Mac OSX.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Thanks. I like iPad so much, I try to do everything on it, but I hope for too much.

    No problem.

    Whatever the OSX app did, give the App Store a good look. Chances are you will find something similar.
