Calibre and Android
I asked about the option of Calibre running on Android quite some time ago and remember a similar response. Unfortunately I am not a developer for Android in fact my programming involvement ended some thirty or so years ago!
I've spent half my life in IT and one thing is very clear to me now (as has happened in the past in some form or another) tablets are here to stay and will be taking a greater part in our lives in the future. I was in the premises of a computer/electrical/everything retailer recently and heard a sales person have the audacity to say "but Tablets are not computers". Well I hope he wakes up soon - probably thinks a Cray is not a computer either!
Anyway in a long winded reply all I am saying is that the brilliant Calibre package (I could not live without it) may need help to migrate to Tablets (ideally Android). I get the impression that Calibre and Android are similar in their use of open-source.
Don't get me wrong Kovid and team. Calibre is the bee's Knee's but would like something to link it to Android.
