Converting .Lit Files for use in Mac OS X

Posted in Mac OS X Software on March 1, 2007 by iCoty

.Lit is a proprietary file format developed by Microsoft and used to distribute eBooks. There is of course a Microsoft based reader from Microsoft but nothing made specifically for Mac OS X. But, Mac users are very handy people and have developed a way to convert such files so that they can be read on any computer. I recently stumbled upon a little app created by this fellow:

www.hansr.net

The app is simple in that it simply converts the .lit file to html so that you can view it in Mac OS X or any platform for that matter. What’s great about this app is that installation is simple comapred to other programs available that do the same thing. Basically, you just launch the app, select the .lit file, then convert. It’s fast and simple and can be got here:

And, it’s much cheaper (FREE!) than forking over the cash to buy a full-fledged version of Adobe Acrobat Professional.
