but the real message is. there's an android app developer who responds to messages so ask whats on his to-do list and toss a coin to.. by buying the app if you want to encourage more development.

when first launched, that app only did cloud, not calibre CS. that got added due to feedback & customer requests.
It's bought. Is it on amazon app store?(I bought CC on Amazon AND GooglePlay as vote-by-coin).
Now some requests are sent to author.

their app is still actively developing and already they added some calibre specific stuff since I bought it.
i use it instead of CC - it has all the features I need.
Thanks for your opinion on this. I was also interested in Calibre Sync as an alternative, but have yet to try it.

i tried everything in play store that showed up on a search fro calibre. Sync is the only one still actively developed. most others will not even login to dropbox as they have depreciated APIs. ( i posted more info on alternatives a long time ago)

previously, I found that moon reader direct to calibre ODPS via wifi was a reasonable work-around, so long as library PC was running, but then I fell out of love with moon reader..

and the talk here of some free open -source development seems to have fizzled out..

i find it rude that none of the "development team" guys who worked for Sam Cohen ever came back or posted that they had quit, or why.
Could be that Covid wiped out the entire team but more likely they just did a runner...

My impression is that the person who bought CC basically had a business model of hiring some contract programmers or a programming firm to do the work rather than actually have a company with employees. He did have a program manager who was active for a while. My guess is that the idea was to get the program in a stable situation with ads and subscriptions and then let everyone go.

As I've said before, I think that CC is very much a niche product that doesn't really have a big enough market to support a full time developer. It's more suited to someone doing it as a side job or hobby, or possibly an open source project.

My impression was that the new "owner" thought there was easy money to be made via the subscription model. That didn't pan out, the coders bailed, and here we are.

It's got a seriously major flaw that makes it unusable. That flaw is no iOS version.

A few months back, I was communicating via email directly with "Alex" on the dev team (or the entire dev team, I don't know) for a previous issue. He was great to deal with. About a month ago, I reached out to him again to see what the status of the app was, and never received a reply.

Based on the owner's demonstrated abrasiveness in earlier threads, I suspect Alex just pulled the plug and noped out of there rather quickly.

given that the entire thread is called ANDROID WISH LIST< I think your " major flaw" is off-target


I have no idea who else offers iOS solutions- perhaps you could be positive and recommend one. or an alternative workaround for calibre < -> iOS via wifi.
I gather its the back-sync link that's tricky as it needs calibre specific wireless device code?

I stopped using it a while back. I got annoyed that CC would make its own list, so that I had to use CC and only CC.
I tend to just plug my device (tablet or phone) into my computer and download from the main Calibre program. I still use Moon+ reader. There doesn't seem to be another reader I like better, and Moon is still active, still updating, and it works smoothly on my Android devices. The Pro version is well worth the money and it helps to keep the project alive.
Anything but the spyful Kindle app! Whenever possible, I avoid buying my books from Amazon.

I think Jon was talking about the CalibreSync app not having iOS support, since that's the app being referenced in the post that he quoted.

I could, of course, be wrong, though...
