Review from Artres Layfon
This is actually a somewhat superior alternative to the official Calibre Companion. It has its modern-looking UI and has a wide array of options for sorting and organizing, and all of its done in a highly user-friendly and appealing format in contrast to alternatives. My only complaint would be the lack of option to download my entire library as my main use of these sorts of mobile apps is to read on the go and have a library of books prepared for that which doesn't seem to be an option here besides downloading then one-by-one or having to use data to download them outdoors. Edit - I've slightly reduced this to 3 stars based on a few problems I've realized. The first is that for some reason the app only recognizes numbers when downloading books from my library which normally wouldn't be a problem but for some reason the app labels each downloaded book with a number as a identifier so when downloading a few book series I had that all use Roman Numerals (I, II, III, IV, etc) it would only download one and therefore render every book in the series unreadable without some editing. Second, it has no offline library function which problematic in the sense that uploading my library online is a hassle in itself, plus there is limited space on my Dropbox account, with my second favorite alternative (Google Drive) just not being as convenient.

When it works, it's great. The problem is that periodically it'll decided to only boot into the library select screen. When I then select my account and library it tells me that it's already chosen and resyncing doesn't fix it. I've had this issue with both OneDrive and Google Drive.
Would give more stars as it works great on my Lenovo tablet Yoga II. For some reason when using on my One Plus 3, when I try to download a book from Google drive says no such folder exists. Also has same problem on Amazon fire hd8. Tried again with new version Works great now. Changed to 5 stars
Pretty slick! This chokes on my >10k book library less than Calibre itself (somehow, probably since I'm not downloading covers?). It'll be handy-dandy.
Love this app, great companion to Calibre. Was about to give it 4 stars as I couldn't figure out how to download covers for new books but found that selecting the three dots for menu, select library and sync, it downloads the new covers. Excellent
Since the latest update, it will no longer actually show the linked library--only the page to set up a link (I have had a Dropbox based library set up, but only see the page with the buttons to set up Dropbox, Drive, etc.) Previous version worked well (I'd probably give it 4 stars), aside from being somewhat inconsistent at syncing on app open.
I have no idea why this app suddenly looses the previously added library and shows login screen again. Even after that it doesn't open the library properly, only after uninstalling the app. Sadly this makes it unusable in the long run on my tablet because of unpredictability.
