Can Cool Reader sync between 2 devices?

Sorry, but, suspect this is a very basic question!

I have been using Cool Reader (with Calibre Companion) for a while now and mainly use on Samsung tablet to read books.

Occasionally, I will want to use my Samsung phone, picking up where I was reading and then switching back to tablet later.

At the moment, I do this is a very manual way......all books loaded on both devices and searching for a bit of text to find current reading position.

I am sure that I can do this much more smoothly by storing books on Dropbox and using an app to access from there and keep track of reading position.

I cannot see any settings in Cool Reader to do this - can someone confirm whether this is a non-starter or not, please?

Assuming Cool Reader is out (shame, as I like it!) then can someone suggest an app I can use instead? - nothing fancy, just keeping track of reading position on 2 Android devices!

Try koreader it has been built on the base of coolreader/crengine. It does have a position sync system but I have never tried it. https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=240617

I haven't done it Android to Android, but it works fine from Kobo to Android. You can even use the z-sync function in KOReader to add the book you are reading to the other device you want to continue to read it on.

Luck;
Ken

If ePub only, Reasily EPUB Reader can store bookmarks in Google Drive and sync them between devices. Automatic sync is pro function but manual sync is free.
How I do it: After reading finished, select the last word or click the paragraph and bookmark it, click sync now in the menu, then sync on another device, the bookmark appears.
