No, in both cases it didn't.

That would appear to be the case. After all, we are talking about the top of the line android E-reader devices; they are not exactly cheap, mind you.

Your ulterior motive is my invested interest so, good for me: the author wants this feature too! Do please keep me/us posted

  • Screen size / resolution: like reading from an actual book (7.8") instead of a pocket edition (6")
  • Reader native application: good and flexible enough for me but if you don't like it, you have your pick of many Android reading app alternatives
  • Library management: adequate for a small library (~1.000 or less ebooks) and poor for a large library (say, like mine) but that's why I got Calibre Companion first and the E-Ink device after
  • Battery life: even if you only have Calibre Companion installed, with the device on airplane mode (or: Wi-Fi off andf Bluetooth off) and using it only as an E-reader (as opposed to using it as an E-Ink multimedia Android tablet... which you may) battery will last for a week or so. Beyond that, there's a twisting tweaking path that I've barely began to thread (dare I say it, am I waxing poetic here?)

Hope this helps and, once again, thank you for such a good app.

Kudos,
