By Shuho Chou

The only ORB to PDF Converter in the world & The only ORB eBook Reader on Mac.

Just double click the .orb eBook files and enjoy the content instantly.
I built the core parser and rendering engine for 4 years,
it's extremely small, fast and stable without Flash plugin installation.
Many unique features you can't find in any other apps.

Don't waste your valuable time waiting for conversion.
Reading books should be fun and instantly easy.



Export to resolution-independent PDF


You can export the whole book to PDF that'll be even smaller than .orb if exported in Booster mode. Or just save the current reading pages as PDF but the whole book. 

This is the unique feature in the world, it converts your ORB books to PDF with vector to vector conversion. That's why exported PDF is the smallest file size and also resolution independent.

Book publishers, universities and organisations are using this app to export ORB/Flash to PDF for their users. Even the provider of the Windows version bought his first mac to use this app.



Readability

Most .orb ebooks are not built for big screen, so they're low resolution by default. In order to read on big screen, free zooming for better readability.

Open multiple books at the same time, much easier to find the references.

Page thumbnails to help you to browse the pages much faster.

Double pages view is just like PDF reading experience.
Actually, the pages you read are converted PDF pages presented by a PDF view.



Search and Select Text in Booster Mode


Once turn on the Booster,

1. You can select or copy text.

2. Search text in current pages or the whole book.

3. Pages are rendered 3x faster with system fonts as your wish.

4. Export PDF in Booster mode, it's smallest file size (0.8x - 1.2x) in the world and also text selectable/searchable.



Homebrew ORB Books

Some users packaged their SWF/Flash documents to create their ORB Books or export to PDF.

Why this app?
Unlike all others, they're just SWF renderers to get fat bitmap images and insert them to PDF.
This is the only app that do the REAL conversion from SWF/Flash to PDF in vector format.
You'll get the extremely small and real resolution independent PDF.
This is why so many professional and smart users pay for this app.
When 4K display comes, you won't need to convert them again.

2. More Tool tips & Hot keys.

3. PUA Warning (Booster mode only)

Not all text of the books were encoded well. Some of them contained PUA(Private Use Area) codes which can't be converted to other fonts. All these PUA text will be rendered in red color with original embed font. And also a PUA warning mark appeared in the toolbar to warn you.

Why PUA codes exist?

Lots of books are made for pager printing that used lots of special fonts owned by the publishers. They created non standard glyphs and symbols for paper printing and get attention/readability/ligatures or help readers to understand easily. These non standard glyphs and symbols were mapped into PUA codes.

Hope publishers will fix these PUA codes for ORB eBooks.
