Very disappointed as much as I hated my previous daily reader it's head and shoulders above this one can't navigate properly to much work to just get to my daily comics one good thing was customer service response time huge comic fan but this app just doesn't work for me guess I'll keep looking for an app that better suits my needs
Update ruined it This was 1 of my all time favorite apps, loved it! After the update it doesn't get past the opening page where it freezes and/or says that there is a connection problem. I've tried turning it on & off, tried taking the batteries out, it's just not working!
It works...sort of. If all you want to do is read today's comics or know a specific date of a comic you want to read, then this app will be perfect for you. However, if you want to read a comic from a specific place or start where you left off reading, which I'd what I want to do, you'll be greatly disappointed. This app needs better options. Also if you want to go to a comics first comic date, you have to guess it's first pub. date because there is no ability to start at the beginning.
4 stars for the great and free content. But the app can be a little annoying to use, which is why I'm only giving 4 stars instead of 5. Some things that would make this a better app: App knows my favorites (i.e., My Comics Page). It would be nice to sync these (e.g., at night) when on WiFi (up to a configured number of days), which would allow me to view them faster, and when out of network range. Or, at least try to download more when the app launches or the My Comics Page is first accessed, to avoid download delays. App could remember which comics and days I've read already (of My Comics Page), and make it easier for me to see new material or skip already seen material. Comic could initially appear larger (when it is smaller than the full screen), to use more of the screen (without needing me to enlarge it manually). When already at the bottom of an enlarged comic, have additional scrolling down (perhaps a couple times) move to the next comic, rather than having to first shrink the comic. App could have an option to automatically start in the My Comics Page list. Shrinking the comic often also tries to scroll to another comic or day (in a direction I didn't intend).
Love it, swipe is broken This is one of my favorite apps...I use it to keep up with political cartoons and read some other daily funnies (and their archives! ). Recently, though, swipe up/ down to get to the next/ previous comic, and swipe left/ right to move dates is not working.
Still Needs Work It is an okay app, but it definitely needs improvement. A way to bookmark your place if you aren't reading your comics daily, fixing the "search by date" feature to not say the comic doesn't exist all the time even if you were just on that comic. A way to go to the start of an archive for people that might like reading a comic from its start. If it had those features, and they all worked, it would definitely be five stars. Still, it does work if you want to start from today and just read backwards.
Fixed swipe navigation bug.
