Calibre is by far the best software in the world. Not just e-book manager, but software–the best ever. I nearly broke my forefinger clicking the “YES!” radio button for “Would you recommend Calibre to others?”
The interface is perfect, it is 100 bug-free, and it cures cancer.
I mean none of this, but my honest review was censored, so I’m lying to be censored again, because this site is so righteous.
I’ve been using this program because there’s almost literally nothing else out there for what it does. I don’t like the way that the program makes a copy of a file you only want to briefly look at, then stores it in its “library”. I’ve been unable to find a way to turn this “feature” off. The interface is poorly designed and difficult to understand, the program itself is unnecessarily huge (165mb currently for an e-book reader? Really?) and is updated far too often. The updates are a pain to continuously implement. I’ve moved on to other programs.
When i see a Free program i mostly think it’s a less featured one, or it has a tricky payment method to get my money, but after trying Calibre today it has totally changed my opinion about Free programs. Calibre has many features that i really admire. It helps me a lot to organize my library, and it performs fast & steady.
I take my hat off for the developers of Calibre. You did a great job here. Keep it up :)
