Kindle Text Optimizer for Persian eBooks.

What is KTOP? What does it do?
KTOP is a tool for making Persian eBooks ( EPUBs for now ) compatible to E-Readers such as Kindle. By releasing KF8 by Amazon, Kindle devices are be able to display right-to-left Persian and Arabic books. Unfortunately the default font of Kindle is not really good and it has also several drawbacks.
Books can be published with embedded fonts but Amazon Kindle won't display Persian and Arabic eBooks properly with embedded fonts and It will display characters separated.
By using KTOP you can optimize your eBooks to display properly and nicely on Kindle e-Ink devices.
