@skillachie: Could you remove the ad from the subject? The subject should just be the name of the plugin. Plus, the plugin has absolutely nothing to do with syncing with devices. It syncs to a Bookfusion account. From there it syncs to the devices.

And of course, "All Devices" isn't true. You are only talking about Android and iOS based devices. Bookfusion doesn't support dedicated ereader devices such as those from Kobo, Kindle or tolino. So, that claim isn't really true.

Hi David,

Thank you for the comment.

1. Where is the Ad? The subject says "BookFusion Cloud Sync" is that what your referring to? Or the sub heading "Your entire Calibre eBook Collection is only a tap away "

2. Devices - Most devices are based on Android & iOS that users use today. Users sync their eBooks to their Kindle devices via the web interface by clicking send to Kindle and some Kobo users have installed the Android app on their devices.

"All Devices" was not meant to be cover every possible device but the majority of devices that users read on today. However, I can update it to read "Most Devices" since the intention is not to mislead anyone.

When I posted, the title of the thread something like "Sync your entire eBook collection to all your devices - BookFusion Cloud Sync". I considered that first bit an ad rather and not actually help in terms of this forum. I assume a moderator agreed with me about the subject, and fixed it since then. I thought about it later, and I realised that if it was the other way round (plugin name followed by the function claim/ad), I wouldn't have been as bothered by it.

I understand why you used "all device". And in most places, it would probably be OK, but here, you have a large number of people that use devices that you don't support, or only partly support. And to me, using the Kindle email function falls into "partly support" as you don't support reading position syncing. And of course, if you used "all devices" in any advertising without very good disclaimers, someone is going to come after you sooner or later.

And as to Kobo owners installing your app, that either means they are using a Vox, which is an Android table that Kobo stopped selling years ago, or they have installed Android as a replacement for the Kobo supplied OS and application. People who have done the latter is tiny and using them as justification for "all" supporting Kobo devices and hence "all devices" is reaching a bit far.

And as a comment, if I started using BookFusion and this plugin, the dialog displayed in the second last screenshot would really bug me each time I saw it. It is OK for the first time user, but after that, all that text adds absolutely nothing. It is just an ad and you have already made the sale. If it changes as someone uses the plugin, then OK. And the "& on Any Device" at the end of the title is just not needed. It is repeating what has already been said, "on Your Devices" and is a little contradictory - is it "all" or just my devices?.

Hi David,

Thank you for the feedback. Have removed the word 'all' for the devices description. Also, will update the screen in the plugin to be displayed only on first use.

Other Readers,

Please feel free to take the plugin for a spin and let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions.

I'm taking it for a spin, and so far have these questions/concerns (although some are about the site):
  • Genres - only some books display my Genre tags in the web interface (labelled #genre), most don't
  • Series info - I saw elsewhere on MR that Series info will be coming soon - hopefully that'll plug into the Calibre plugin somehow?
  • Calibre comments - these are often part of the metadata downloaded from GR/Amazon and give a synposis/back-matter text-based description of each book. Without it I'm forced to rely on book covers, which is very frustrating for me - I choose poorly when judging a book by its cover
  • Default setting for uploaded books is "public" - found where to change it in Settings, but I'm not comfortable sharing my purchased books publically
  • Grid vs table view on the web interface - I'm not a fan of the cover grid view. I want to know what the book's about before I start reading.

My current well-loved setup is using Calibre Companion w/Moon+Reader on my devices to download/sync books and bookmarks. From there, I browse for the next book by a wide variety of tags, including genre, series, author, and title. I also have custom columns set up to match my Goodreads labels which helps find my next read. This service seems to fall pretty short of that experience. The only area where it excels is the web-based reading - that is spot-on.

Thank you for taking us for a spin lorikitty. Really appreciated. Will clarify some of the points


Thank you for the excellent and constructive feedback lorikitty. We will be able to address all of the points mentioned and look forward to following up with you again when we do.

Happy Reading

[*]Genres - only some books display my Genre tags in the web interface (labelled #genre), most don't
Will have this added to development to be reviewed and resolved.

Quote:
[*]Series info - I saw elsewhere on MR that Series info will be coming soon - hopefully that'll plug into the Calibre plugin somehow?
Series information not available yet but is planned


Quote:
[*]Calibre comments - these are often part of the metadata downloaded from GR/Amazon and give a synposis/back-matter text-based description of each book. Without it I'm forced to rely on book covers, which is very frustrating for me - I choose poorly when judging a book by its cover :bookworm
We had the issue previously where some users preferred to keep the metadata that was synced from their library. We will have this enabled by default but have the option to disable automatically fetching metadata for upload eBooks. This is planned with the addition of some more features later this year

Quote:
[*]Default setting for uploaded books is "public" - found where to change it in Settings, but I'm not comfortable sharing my purchased books publically
To be clear the books marked as "public" are not shared. It just means once the ability to share eBooks and your reader profile is released(currently in development) then those titles will show on your bookshelf for your family or friends to see your eBook collection just as they would browse your physical bookshelf.

This can be toggled to private by default and you can selective choose which books you would like to be shown on your bookshelf and the ones to kept hidden

Quote:
[*]Grid vs table view on the web interface - I'm not a fan of the cover grid view. I want to know what the book's about before I start reading.
Great point. We will have this added.
