What is Calibre Companion?
Calibre Companion is three applications in one: a superb device-based calibre library organizer, a high-performance WiFi-based calibre device emulator, and a client to access your library using calibre's content server and the cloud (Dropbox, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, and Amazon Cloud Drive).
The first: CC is a calibre library organizer for your device.

The second: Calibre Companion supports connecting to calibre over WiFi and be detected by calibre as a device. No other app, reader or browser, offers this level of integration with calibre.
- All calibre device operations are supported, including sending books and metadata, cover thumbnails, deleting books, sending news, and plugins like Reading List.
- You can specify where different book formats are to go on your device, e.g., epubs in one folder, pdfs in another, and mobis in a third.
- Calibre Companion updates the metadata for the books on every connect as a wireless device, ensuring the information for your books displayed in Calibre Companion is the same as the information displayed in calibre.
- Most setup is on the device, making it easy for different users in the same household to have different device configurations, or to use more than one computer running calibre.
The third: Calibre Companion can access your library via calibre’s content server or the cloud.
