Agreed. It's terrific. The bookshelf view is great and you can configure that to suit your needs, even choosing the shelf color.
If you are having issues with covers in CC -- covers showing up blotchy or otherwise not having the quality you want -- there are tweaks on the Calibre side that will let you adjust how the thumbnails are sent over and raise the quality.
Another nice thing about the app is that its developer, Charles Haley, is also a key developer for Calibre. That's why CC works so well with Calibre. He is easy to contact with any issues or requests too via the Calibre forum here.
