    v5.27.0 adds access to news and articles from 'The Week' by Kovid Goyal, Kovid being the developer of calibre! There is no 'About' information regarding the magazine or its website. My guess is that Kovid is both publisher and editor. It's a weekly news magazine in English from an India perspective, well worth a read or subscription for those interested. Thank you Kovid!

    It is the best library management for ebooks - and almost the only usable one on any desktop. It could be made better but we may/must help a bit there with donations. The one thing I have not understood yet (as far as design decisions go) is why it does not support iCloud as a place for libraries (there are some ways to do it but they are not straightforward.

    A useful app, but the interface is terribly ugly and non-Mac-ish. It's desperately in need of a facelift.

    Calibre has been a great tool when I wrote a book, years ago, to convert it for online stores. Only issue was that Amazon refused Calibre's mobi format and I had to make some corrections using Sigil (the other indispensable tool in this category!) The interface could be clearer and more Mac like, but it has far more functions than I needed, so I guess, it's not easy to stuff them in. ;-) The choice to make it 10.14 is surprisingly more radical than what even Apple usually does, but indeed you can still use v3.48, available on their website.

    Absolutely superb free library program so easy to use... I have been using it for several years and have more than 900 books. It has the facility to translate books into different formats if needed. It has become essential for me that I truly love.

    the "problem", neartheredrocks, is that you don't get bug fixes and new features ... moving over to 64-bit was fine - basing it on 10.14 and higher's Finder was not - there are over half of the Mac population that is 10.13 but not higher-compatible - this could have been easily avoided, and was a bad decision

    For those who need something like this Calibre is one of the most amazing free applications available for macOS. The developer has my deepest gratitude. Yes, it's not very pretty - but I could not care less about that in the light of all its features and capabilities. And those who complain that the latest version of Calibre (from 2019) does not work anymore with an older version of macOS (from 2017) have actually no real reason to complain as an older version of Calibre (3.48) that works perfectly fine with older macOS versions is still available for download on the developer's website. It's free - please don't forget that!
