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.

CC has been translated into the following languages:
- Portuguese (Brazilian): fully translated
- Italian (Italy): 94% translated
- Spanish (Spain): 83% translated
- Japanese (Japan): 56% translated
- German (Germany): 50% translated
- French (France): 46% translated

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).

Calibre Pro!. Awesome app, easy to use, just like the original software. Does exactly what it says on the tin, and more besides!

Too pricey Is it good? Yes. It's nice. Is it worth 4 freaking dollars? No. The only thing that makes it worth paying for is to support the developers of Calibre itself. Otherwise there are free apps which can do better, frankly. I might be happier with $2, but not $4.

Wonderful app. This app is a companion to a to notch open source e-book manager. It's the best there is, and a wonderful way to support the developer.
