Question Samsung Tablet - best eReader to utilise?

Good day all

I have recently finished compiling an extensive library on my Calibre software, and in my researching found the preferred eReaders to use in conjunction with the companion app; last evening I finally got everything lined and transferred my library onto my (Samsung 10.1) tablet.

However I am now trying to get the eReaders to link between with it, and have found that Moon+ (which has the best library layout tin my opinion - I like to see all the covers, etc.); I have linked and everything imported; but I now have a result whereby (after a loooong time of getting all the metadata corrected and covers, etc.) they have all imported with one cover (bleurg ); now is this a Moon+ problem or how I imported, etc.? It is entirely possible that I did something very wrong; please help or is there a different eReader that I should rather use; or would this issue be rectified if I buy the full version?

Please help

Thank you

Most CC users don't use the reader app's library manager, instead using CC to do that job. If you want to discuss this further, post a question in CC's MobileRead forum or ask me to move this thread there.

Thanks Chaley

Thank you, if you could please move to the CC's MobileRead forum, not sure now if I should use an additional app to use, and how to get the correct covers for the books to reflect; or if I should just use directly through CC?

As I said above, most CC users don't bother with the reader app's library manager for several reasons:
  • The reader apps do not understand all of calibre's metadata, and may not understand any of it.
  • The metadata inside the book might not be the same as the metadata inside calibre, which will cause the reader app to display "wrong" metadata.
  • Covers inside the book might not be the same as covers in calibre. You might be seeing the effects of this problem.
  • CC's sorting and grouping features far exceed those offered by reader apps.
  • CC can show/sort/group on calibre custom columns.
  • CC will automatically update metadata and covers every time you connect as a wireless device.
  • In some cases there is no single reader app that handles all the book formats (mobi, epub, cbz, pdf, etc), or does not handle them in a way acceptable to the user. CC can launch different reader apps based on format.
When you use CC as a library manager, you do not "import" the books into the reader app. Instead you "read" the book from CC, which will launch the reader app and (usually) open the book.

As for why you are seeing the wrong covers in Moon+: I don't know. It could be that the wrong covers are in the book file. It could be a problem with Moon+. Or something else. Using CC as the library manager avoids these problems. (BTW: I use Moon+ Pro as my main reader app.)
