    "Don't virtually touch an eBook without it"

    August 23, 2013   |   By zunipus

    Version: Calibre 1.0.0

    Pros

    Free! Totally, inexplicably Free!

    The GUI has been smartened up for its birthday. It's useful for anything having to do with eBooks: Reading, cataloging, editing, creating and converting eBooks. No other program is this capable and comprehensive for its purposes. It's a terrific blessing for the Mac community.

    Then there are the added bells and whistles: Click the 'Fetch news' button and ogle. Then check out the Fetch news settings for adding your own news sources and scheduling downloads. This is for reelz! Then delve into tutorials and notice the depth of capability of this application.

    The developer is terrific and very dedicated. He is constantly improving Calibre and adding features.

    Cons

    It has a learning curve and can be overwhelming to a newbie. The GUI can be confusing as it offers so much capability in one window.

    I personally would provide the manual with every download. However, we are considered an Internet connected world, so downloading the latest version of the manual from the net can be an advantage.

    The GUI elements used to be very plain, but recently they've spruced up nicely.

    Summary

    Calibre is a hefty gem, weighing in at about 250 MB, worth every byte! This has to be one of the most remarkably capable and important free programs in the Mac hemisphere. Highly recommended to one and all who enjoy reading, cataloguing, editing, creating and converting eBooks!

    Don't virtually touch an eBook without it.

    Incredibly grateful thanks to the remarkable developer of Calibre and his dedicated work on this terrific software project. (^_^)

    Happy Birthday Calibre!
