    Yeah - first place I head for just about everything any more.

    Hope that one'll do it for ya. Should be able to search the app store with just "chm" also.

    well then. i should have tried the free version first. its an iphone version not made for ipad. so you can read it in a tiny window at 1x or choose 2x and get semi full screen blur blob of text.

    wasted 6 bucks...almost unusable.

    Try this free online converter- link.

    Or try the OS X version of iChm to convert to pdf.

    I will check it out thanks bobtomay

    *edit couldnt get the online version to work even if the files were below the 10gb max. i kept getting an error.
    i was able to get ichm to convert them like you said and it worked really well. now i will just have to convert
    them all and read em in good reader. thanks again.
