Android app using Calibre scripts

Hi all,

Quite a while ago I wrote a very basic android app that uses the built-in Calibre scripts and recipes to download publications and emails them to my Kindle. I found this easier than having to boot my laptop up to send myself a newspaper.

Given that Calibre uses the GNU GPL I assume that this is fair usage, but since I have uploaded it as a free app to the Google play store, I wanted to draw your attention to it, as I don't want to do anything wrong. I have also licensed it under the GPL and mentioned this in the store listing, and also the about menu. I have also credited Calibre in both places.

Please let me know if you are OK with this, or if you want me to change anything, I will be happy to do so. Just hope that somebody else finds it useful too.

App can be found here. It is very basic, but does what I need it to
