Adding to this, the other major motivation for using Calibre Companion is that calibre can't communicate very well with modern phones anymore. Android phones changed from appearing just as an external drive (like a USB stick) to using "Media Transfer Protocol", and this broke all of calibre's device interactions. Fixing this was something that a lot of people wanted, and why we built Calibre Companion.

While it's true that Friday's release of calibre started adding MTP support, it's still in beta, and it will not have as many features as Calibre Companion even when finished.

Anyway, I saw you were able to cancel your order within the automatic 15 minute refund period, so you've already got your money back.
