That's interesting. I purchased the paid version but uninstalled it because of some buggy behavior. I've been waiting for a bug fix upgrade. I wonder how people will be notified. Their website leaves a lot to be desired.

I know this is a somewhat old thread. But I just purchased Kindlean and it works charms on my KT 5.1.2 - no issues at all. The diags > reboot > disable diags gymnastics may be a bit frustrating, but considering I always put lots of books at once is a no issue for me, as I do it less often that way.
BTW Thanks to all in this thread that helped me find the Kindlean to manage collections on my KT. Sad Calibre is of no use atm.

@ergoproxy: Yes it is. (Collections Manager + Kindle Collections Plugin).

I wish there was more control over which collections were imported and the ability to remove collections from their servers. The longer you have a device the more junk collections you will end up with on their servers. I don't think Amazon gave a lot of thought to collections and books which were not purchased from them when they implemented this process, but that is a non-issue because at least this makes it easier to do than doing it all manually.
Hi, I have a Kindle Touch and a Mac (running OS X) and am having a devil of a time trying to arrange all my books and pdfs into collections on the Kindle so that on the home screen of the device interface I don't have to manually scroll through pages and pages of individually listed files to get to the file I want to read. I use Calibre and have created "user categories" based on tags that more or less represent (as listed folders within Calibre) the generic collections I'm trying to create. However, I don't know how to export my classification system to the Kindle so that the Kindle interface only shows the broader generic collections with the individual books and pdfs nested within them (as opposed to all individual texts being haphazardly arrayed on the device's interface). I've also tried the Kindle App on my laptop - I managed to load pdfs onto the Kindle App interface and along with downloaded books organize them into collections, but how to export this information to the device? I tried both the "Sync and check for new items" button and "Manage Your Kindle..." under "Tools" (which link the device, app and cloud?) but none of my newly created collections in the Kindle App appeared in my cloud on the Amazon website or on the device itself. I also found reference to a "Kindle Collections" plug-in for Calibre, but it turns out it's not available for Kindle Touch. Any help would be greatly appreciated - on a Kindle Touch (and using a Mac), how does one distribute one's whole library into a much smaller number of thematic collections, and ensure that this limited number of collections appears on the device's home interface, with individual books/pdfs listed within their respective collections and accessible by opening the appropriate collection? It's ridiculous how difficult this simple operation is proving ... Advance thanks!

The Kindlean site seems to be completely down: the prior website has been replaced with some sort of spammish-looking healthcare website. Did the domain expire?

Also, did they rename the software? I see something online now- spelled Kindlian (just with i substituted for the e)- and their webite looks the same as I recall the old site looking. Does anyone know if it's legit?

I'm running a Kindle Touch and dealing with collections has become a nightmare; after the software update, it even loses track of which books are in collections if I moved the files to keep the drive organized. I'm thinking about buying the software, but I want to make sure that the version at the new website isn't malware, and that I can bulk-edit books on the new Kindle Touch update...

Could someone please help me? I have no clue what I'm doing. I really have tried researching this, but there's so much conflicting information, and so many "sure this manager works EXCEPT FOR YOU, TOUCH USERS! > " links...

ed: I'd also be curious to know if anyone can run kindlian on Linux? Some programs will run under WINE... but would it recognize the Kindle Touch as being attached? Has anyone tried this?

I use the collections manager on my kindle touch with no problems. there is a link on the first page of the collections manager to a modified plug in for calibre to export your collection to the kindle.

Thank you, but I'm afraid to try jalibreaking it. The last time I tried editing firmware, I bricked a media player. I don't think I could do something so complex (at least, unless I had no other alternative...)

I was hoping for some sort of premade software?

I might try it if there's no other choice, though... Since you use it,I have a question: does the collection manager permit mass-editing of some sort, such as selecting a lot of books and adding them to / removing them from collections? What is the interface like?

I've already ranted about Kindlean somewhere else. In short, it goes like this: To support Kindle Touch and Paperwhite, Kindlean has shamelessly ripped the jailbreaks published here.

Not that it's forbidden to create "derivative" works, but one could at least expect a link, or a notice, or a thank you. But no, Kindlean has never even cared to get in touch or do any of the above - but they are profiting from our work AND they are making money with it. I'm disgusted.

Jailbreaking a Kindle Touch is neither difficult nor dangerous. And in the worst case: the Touch is virtually unbrickable - it can be restored within 5 minutes.

Yes, Calibre + Collections Manager

So,so. Depends on how you define "mass". You can act at most on everything that you see on the screen (like, move 5 books at a time into a collection, or hide 11 books at a time). For the initial setup of 100s of books, you're better off doing it in calibre - it can get somewhat tedious on the Kindle, but it could be done. The interface is depicted in the CM thread.

Just use Kubrick, its painless and virtually impossible to do anything wrong. just follow the instructions.

I'm sorry! for all my flipping through pages, I still managed to miss that. Well, I'd prefer not to buy from them, then, if possible... Thank you for mentioning that.
