Calibre Companion

Calibre Companion


A free demo version is now available. See the end of this description for details.

Calibre Companion (CC), recommended by calibre developers, is three applications in one:
- a superb device-based calibre library organizer
- a high-performance WiFi-based calibre device emulator
- a calibre content server (web access) client

1) CC is a device-based calibre library organizer. Once you put books on your device using one of the connection methods described below you can:
- view a book's metadata (author, tags, series, rating, dates, etc.).
- sort and group books by their metadata.
- see book lists by cover or by list.
- mark books read and sync this information with calibre.
- launch your book reader application to read a book (works with most reader applications except for Amazon Kindle).

2) CC can connect to calibre over WiFi and be detected by calibre as a device. Once connected, you use calibre to move books to and from your device. Calibre automatically updates all the book metadata stored by CC to match the latest in your library. No other app, reader or browser, offers this level of integration with calibre.

3) CC can connect to calibre’s content server over WiFi to browse your library and download books to your device.

For more information see our FAQ (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=188899)

Notes:
1) CC is not a reader app. You must install and use one of the many excellent reader apps available.
2) CC requires that you use calibre calibre 0.9.02 or later, available at http://calibre-ebook.com/. Some CC features such as syncing book read information require newer versions of calibre.

A free demo version of CC is available in the Google Play store. Install and test with that version if you have concerns that CC won't work on your network or isn't what you need. To get it, go to http://www.multipie.co.uk/calibre-companion/ and click the button for the demo version (links to Google Play don't work here).

Bought it by mistake. Ask for refund. No refund. I wanted to buy calibre cloud, and by mistake I bought this app instead. I asked for refund using the developer email, Received a message saying that support is just on the forums. Why put the developer´s email then ?

Great If you have calibre and android, you need this app. Period. You do need a reader to go with it though.. Moon reader should do be fine.

The killer app for readers on Android I love this app so much I sold my iPad and purchased an android tablet I was using this on my phone, and I realized that reading on the iPad was not going to do it for me any more. If you have a large library, this app is a must buy. I would gladly pay many times more for it then the $3 the developer is asking for. Also, the developer is very responsive about adding requested features.
