Once you put books on your smart device, this app lets you view the metadata of the book, i.e. its author, tags, series, etc., sort and group books, mark the books read, and launch your book reader app to read any of your books.
Wi-Fi-based calibre device emulator is the second main functionality of the app. One can use it to move the books to and from your device. This functionality helps in updating all the metadata of your books.
Lastly, the app is also a calibre content server and cloud provider. Leverage this functionality to browse your library, look for new books, and download them to your device. OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, etc. are some of the supported cloud services.
Though the app is super powerful, the interface of the app looks a bit clumsy owing to the presence of so many functionalities. There are plenty of essential features that have been concealed into the top left corner of the app. However, the sort functionality, connect feature, and other essential options rest on the top of the app, thereby, making the interface of the app cluttered.
