Just seen this on Lifehacker - I imagine they will be getting a traffic boost, anyone used it?

I wish there was more aesthetics and design in Calibre - but I prefer function over form when getting things done.

Given that it is using calibre and is being distributed in binary form without source code and with a license incompatible with the GNU GPL v3 (calibre's license) it is illegal.

Besides being utterly immoral in that it uses calibre and does not acknowledge that fact anywhere in its user interface.
