Changing of the Guard

Dear CC community,

As many of you have noticed, neither Steve nor I have been actively developing CC for quite some time. The reasons are diverse but can be summarized as "Life Happens". That said, neither of us want to leave CC unloved. For that reason we decided to pass the CC project to another developer, Sam Cohen (@samcohen). The transfer has started and will complete over the next few days.

Sam is very excited about taking over the projects and reviving active CC development on both iOS and Android.

Steve and I thank all of you for your encouragement and support over the last 7 years (has it really been that long?). We very much appreciate all the comments, complements, and criticisms you took the time to give us. We hope that you will be as supportive of Sam as you have been of us.

I will remain involved with calibre and will continue to hang out in this CC forum, commenting when I think I add value.

-- Charles & Steve

Edit: The mobileread user kaufman has agreed to work with Sam on Android CC. He has been using CC for many years, requesting many of the most-used CC features during that time. This is very good news for the app.

Thank you for this fantastic app! I enjoy using it and it has proven very valuable to me . All the best to you, Charles and Steve!

Welcome, Sam! I wish you the best of luck for CC and am looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with .

Awesome. I had been worrying a bit about CC for iOS.

I really want to thank both you and Steve for the incredible job that y'all have done on CC. It's an integral part of my eBook infrastructure. I give both of you some major kudos for passing the torch on rather than just let CC die as an abandoned project.

I'm also looking forward to seeing what Sam does with CC.

Hello Everyone,

I'm Sam the new developer for Calibre Companion. I want to start off by saying thank you to Steve and Charles for creating such fantastic applications. They have created a project that many of us use daily. In today's world, this is a serious feat.

I used Calibre for quite a few years and was not aware of Calibre Companion. I am making it my goal to make sure every Calibre user is exposed and has the opportunity to get a chance to use these great applications.

I can't promise to be as technically knowledgeable as Charles and Steve when it comes to the intricacies of the application. I have a lot of catching up to do. My background is in technical marketing so many of the updates I make will be focused around building an exceptional user experience. I plan to put in some optional surveys/polls within the app to help me better the apps to the best of my ability.

Thank you for the warm welcome and I'm excited to get the ball rolling.

Best,
Sam

I wouldn't have dreamed of switching from traditional e-readers to Android based e-ink devices if CC wasn't available and also being such a wonderful mobile complement to Calibre.

It's good to know that the torch has been passed so CC's flre will continue to burn brightly.

Cheers,

[INCANUS]

Welcome aboard Sam.

Chaley, I can't thank you enough for all you have done over the last seven years. You have taken about a zillion of my crazy requests and bought the non-stupid ones to life.

CC on Android is the main reason why I will never switch to another phone OS.
