Editors' Review

Calibre Portable helps organize and keep track of your e-books. You can read e-books though the app as well.

Pros

Sync and conversion: Through Calibre Portable, you can sync all of your e-books, so no matter where you want to read them, you'll always pick them up in just the right place. You can also convert e-books from one format to another to make them compatible with various e-book readers and other mobile devices. Output format options include MOBI, EPUB, AZW3, FB2, HTMLZ, LIT, PDB, PDF, and more.

Customizing the look: There are also quite a few options available for customizing the appearance of the pages including the table of contents, the page setup, and the look and feel of the pages themselves.

Search: You can also search for new books directly through the app. When you use this feature, you'll be presented with many options for each listing, so you can quickly find the best deal on the book you want to read next.

Cons

Freezing: This app did freeze and crash a couple of times during testing. It did always open back up again without issues, however.

Bottom Line

Calibre Portable is a great option whether you have an extensive e-book library already or are just getting started. It provides clear options for syncing and converting e-books, as well as keeping them centrally located, so you can find what you're looking for quickly.

What's new in version 2.83

New Features

  • PDF Output: Default to generating PDFs with a page size of letter instead of taking the page size from the output profile.

    This avoids user confusion/bug reports about PDF Output having "too large fonts". There is a new option "Use profile size" to have the conversion use the output profile page size instead.

  • PDF/DOCX Output: Add separate, pdf/docx specific, page margin settings that override the common settings.

    Useful because page margin settings for page oriented formats, such as PDF and DOCX are usually different than those for reflowable formats such as EPUB

  • Table of Contents tool: Add an undo button
  • Metadata jacket: Show custom rating columns using stars
  • Metadata jacket: Change formatting of series to match that used by the book details panel. Also allow access to the raw series name and number when customizing the jacket template.
  • calibredb check_library: Vacuum database when running the check
  • Check Book: Add a check for empty identifier elements

Bug Fixes

  • Edit book/Book polishing: When adding a cover to an EPUB 3.0 file set the svg property if a SVG cover wrapper is used
  • Refresh the book list when a User Category is added/edited.
  • EPUB metadata: Fix deleting ISBN from EPUB file could result in an EPUB file without a package identifier if the ISBN was used as the package identifier.
  • Amazon metadata download: Fix title and author names being bold in the downloaded comments when using bing to get amazon metadata.
  • PDF Output: Fix a regression that broke PDF Output for documents containing mathematics.
  • E-book viewer: Fix a regression that broke the "Clear recently read books" action in the viewer
