eCub is a software utility that was developed specifically to aid individuals in building EPUB digital books from HTML, TXT, EPUB and MOBI documents or from scratch.
Hassle-free setup and well-organized interface
The installation process does not offer to download or add any products that are not actually vital for the program to work properly and it does not last longer than a few seconds. Once you are done with it, you come face to face with a pretty well-structured and clean interface, as it consists of a menu bar, several buttons and a few panes to display certain information about the e-book.
Moreover, extensive Help contents are incorporated and thus ensure that all types of users can learn how to handle it, even those that have little or no previous experience with computers.
Information you can add
This tool enables you to create EPUB e-books with the help of a built-in wizard. This means that you will be guided every step of the way, so that you can be sure you do not forget to add something or do not know how to. You will have to input information such as book title, identifier, author, date, publisher, contributor(s), subject and a small description.
Create covers from templates
In addition to that, it is possible to choose the file name, output directory and resulting format (EPUB or MOBI), as well as provide the items from which you want to build the e-book. Some templates are also integrated, enabling you to select them in order to create covers, yet you can also input your own images.
Convert HTML to text
A text-to-speech function is integrated, while you can also change the character encoding, generate a title page, guide and a table of contents, and convert text to HTML or the other way around. Logs can also be viewed in the main window, so that you can always check if everything has been processed without errors.
To sum up, eCub is a pretty efficient and reliable piece of software, when it comes to creating EPUB or MOBI digital books. It does not put a strain on the computer’s performance and our tests did not register any errors or bugs. The interface is user-friendly, the response time is good and Help contents are provided.
