…In this movie, we're going to take the penny tour of the Calibre application.…To be honest it's actually more of a suites of applications.…There's the library and book browser, that's the most common…interface and that's the one we're in at the moment.…From here all of your books would be stored.…There's also a viewer which we'll be seeing fairly shortly.…There's a little conversion area, there's a…editor, there's even a little news reader…on the side of there so you can plug in news feeds to this.…
