    Guys i have a textbook on my laptop and this is the file type on my computer: " compiled HTML (. Chm) "and i want to read the book on my ipad. I usually use ibooks and adobe for pdfs but for this format i am stuck. Is there a way, or even a free app i can use to read the book on my ipad. Help. Thanks

    At work, we're using GoodReader, which'll run you about $3.99 IIRC. Alternatively, you can try FileApp from the AppStore. It's free but I've never had any dealings with it.

    That is a compiled html help file. AFAIK, you need Internet Explorer to read it. Read it on your laptop.

    A quick search for "chm" in the App Store reveals many apps which can help you read Microsoft Help files on the iPad! Some of them are free!
