Instant access to my entire calibre library What an awesome app! Before you use it, you need to set up your calibre library properly. It MUST be in one of the three cloud services supported by this app. Mine is in Dropbox. I literally opened this app, selected the Dropbox folder my calibre library lives in, and all of my ebooks showed up immediately. Brilliant app. I'm buying the paid version right now.
Could be better. I am a total bibliophile. Having my thousands of books at my finger tips seems like a gift from the heavens. Until I finally after three day for everything uploaded only to find that I need a second program to read my books. As a long term user of the desktop version, I had high hopes but in the end I am very disappointed.
If you use Calibre it's awesome! Running Calibre on my dated 64 bit Windows Vista system, running this app on HTC One M8, Calibre library hosted on file hosting site, after testing free version will be purchasing paid version for added features but mostly to support development of the entire Calibre software library. Must have app if u have a Calibre eBook library!
So far, it seems to be really good. I have 1250 books in my Calibre Library, and this app is very fast, with no visible delays in search or display. I use Moon+ Reader, which will download books from my Calibre Library, but has no setting for where to download and then has some problems importing books (at least recently). This solves that problem by downloading into whatever directory I want, then I can import into Moon+. Also, Moon+ only downloads easily from my computer's Calibre server, not Dropbox. I just wish this app would collapse the author view into either single letters of the alphabet, or smaller groups, then expand the group on demand to avoid scrolling through a giant long list (ie, click on either "A", or "ABC", to find all authors starting with "A".
Ok but... The download function freaks my tablet out! If I do open it qorks fine but download not so much. Also, how about allow me to access the calibre library on my WD Cloud drive!? I wonder if this works on pro?
4.5 stars... Does all it promises I would love to be able to add books to calibre from my phone or tablet. I can access my library but not edit it. I prefer to not have to go to my PC to make changes. Other than that, it's an amazing app.
