KindleGen is a command line tool which enables publishers to work in an automated environment with a variety of source content including HTML, XHTML or EPUB. KindleGen converts this source content to a single file which supports both KF8 and Mobi formats enabling publishers to create great-looking books that work on all Kindle devices and apps. This utility is able to handle a variety of formats for input documents, including HTML, EPUB and OPF. It can even handle directories and ZIP archives as source, but only for ever-eXtending Mobile Document Format e-books or XMDF, in short, and FictionBook files (FB2). A nice feature of this app is the ability to have all the pictures in the book converted to GIF images, which will save some space and help keep the overall size of the e-book as low as possible. Also, if you want the messages to be displayed in other languages, the localization function of this tool makes this possible.
KindleGen is officially supported by Amazon to convert files to the Kindle format. We recommend you use KindleGen to create content that is compatible with all Kindle devices and apps. Files created with third-party software may not work properly on current or future Kindle devices and apps.
