@Developer: What's with your example image above? When I click it to view a larger image, I get something that's about 20% smaller!

I did not finish up the registration and testing of this app. Highly invasive looking from the start and too much like the typical apps put out by big ebook sellers that try to catalog your holding into an online account. Primarily targeted at students, it seems, I for one have no need of this since Calibre not only manages but also syncs my ebooks... without sending data to an online storage facility.

As far as I got, it looks like it won't operate fully unless you sign up for an account with their service. If I'm wrong, well, someone else can say. Not letting this thing into my system.
