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
- Russian (Russia): 44% 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).

    Syncs flawlessly, great integration with calibre, everything I want in a library organiser on android. Add a committed and responsive dev and what more could you want?

    Very powerful app that compliments calibre perfectly. A must-have if you have a substantial calibre library. Excellent work.

    This does everything it says it will, and very easy and intuitive. Love being able to sync to my eBook library even away from home. Very cool

    Works great on my phone - but it crashes on my new Tab 4. So disappointed.

    Love the new widgets!! This requires Caliber on your computer. I can update, add content, etc. there and then send to my tablet wirelessly. I wasn't sure it would be useful but it handles data stuff better than an ereader.
