I am not an expert, but Kindlean (a commercial collection manager) claims to be working with Touch. I have it (and this plugin, and another freeware... I am a hoarder
), but since I don't have Touch I wasn't able to verify the claim. PW is on its way, so we shall see. If it does work, that would mean that collection data is somehow accessible via USB (my understanding of some other exchange on the topic was that what was in json file is now in SQLite database or something...)
Edit: just saw another post: apparently, PW is not recognized by Kindlean...
