Review from Kimberly Burgess
Good program Now that Dark Horse has updated its app to include digital purchases, it is pretty good. Wish that they joined with Comixology for one stop shopping for me.
No comments Deserved a 5star ;)
Best comic app
Store needs better search features Otherwise works as advertised
Love the comics, but the app needs work. I've been quite happy with the selection of comics. Being able to track down old and hard to find series have been great. However, the main page takes a long time to load and my phone will attempt to close out the app before everything runs smoothly. It's also disappointing that some of the advertised comics arn't able to be downloaded through the app.
Great content, okay delivery There's an awesome selection of high-quality comics available! On my Galaxy S4, navigating pages is frustrating. I like to read with my phone turned horizontally, scrolling up and down as necessary. The page turns if I even slightly scroll towards the right, and I can't go back a page without tapping the screen and using the navigation bar. I'd be happier reading with a normal PDF viewer, but the convenience of buying issues in-app makes up for this.
Getting worse - let us transfer to Comixology This app has always been a little slow and clunky, but it seems to be getting worse. Before you ask, I have reinstalled several times. Load times are very slow. Sometimes pages don't load at all and I have to keep going back and forth to get them to load. Also, it crashes often. Comixology has issues, too, but in general it works smoother. Now that Dark Horse is on their app, we should be allowed to sync our purchases with them, the way Marvel does.
Update Google libraries for in-app purchase compliance
CAUTION UPDATING to 1.3.14 from 1.3.10 or older:
** Some devices require a reboot before the app will recognize an SD card.
** In rare cases a clean reinstall may be necessary.
1.3.14 fixes a bug in the reader on high resolution screens
* Support SD cards on all devices
* Fix bugs in low resolution devices:
—— large images failed to load
—— resuming book loads darkness and sadness rather than a page
