My main wish is to be able to use Google Play to read books, in other words, I think it works better than the applications, as is often the case. Plus, tho I often am a Google Fan, and still have my Google Nexus One phone, I do find it irritating that they make it so difficult to read outside lit sources on their inhouse reader. I don't have that problem with Kindle, where Calibre nicely translates epub...but I"ve tried different ways of using Calibre on Nexus7 but so far, doesn't seem to help, so at this point I'm still using Aldiko
I forgot you can use calibre as a server, mostly because I just dont use it that way. But it is definately an awsome way to do it. The advantage is you ge the description... at least I do in Stanza which is the only place I have used it as a server.
Tamming has some great suggestions.
