Hamster eBook Converter Lets You Move Ebooks Between Devices

Windows: Ebooks are great, but many applications use proprietary formats that so they’re only readable in their apps or on their devices. Set them free with the Hamster Free eBook Converter.

You may remember Hamster Soft’s drag-and-drop video converter, which we’ve mentioned before. Its new ebook converter is very similar: drag and drop an ebook onto the app, select the destination device or file format, and click convert. The app also supports batch file conversions from multiple formats.

Hamster Free eBook Converter allows you to convert ebook files in proprietary formats for Sony, iRiver, Amazon, Kobo and other ebook readers into a version that can be read on any other reader, or on all of them as a simple PDF or file format they all understand.

  • So can anyone tell me how this compares to Calibre? Although Calibre seems like it could do just about anything if you learn how to use it properly, I’m not willing to spend that much time on converting ebooks. From the few I did convert using Calibre I found some punctuation and formatting went missing. Is this more “automatic”?

  • I’ve used both Calibre and Hamster. Calibre is a great converter but the prog is not very appealing. Hamster’s appeal is its clean appearance. Hamster also has a drag and drop feature which I love.

  • Apparently, Hamster uses the Calibre engine and source, but does not credit Calibre contributors nor release the source code as required by Calibre (which uses GPL v3.0 licensing). As Hamster is from Russia, there is nothing we could do but boycott Hamster.
