Using two Devices with Calibre Simultaneously

Simple question. Can you use a Nook Color and an IPad with Calibre simultaneously or do you have to go through a number of changes to Preferences in Calibre when you change devices? I would like to use both devices interchangeably if this will not be very difficult.

I have not yet set up the IPad to work with Calibre because this question just occurred to me when I was reading through the instructions on this forum.

You may only have 1 device CONNECTED at a time.
The (detected) device driver will take care of most of the rest. (Each device driver can be configured when the device is attached (and detected).

Thanks for the reply. Would be nice if upon connecting one of my devices a pop up would identify the device and ask me or automatically change the page setup to the correct device and redownload my newspapers that have already downloaded for the other device.

I know this is an older message, but I just got my first iPad. Has the OP (or anyone else) done this successfully? I'm a little leery of trying it, for fear of then being unable to connect my NookTablet and transfer books.

Also, will using Calibre with my iPad 4 enable me to transfer my (disinfected) epubs into Marvin?

Calibre will always be 1 device when connected as a device.
Using a web browser with the Calibre content server running is always an option (local WiFi/wired network required).

Why not try? It is not like you don't already have the iPad and are still in purchase decision mode ?
