Review from Rex Torres
Used to be a 5-star rating Used to be bug-free & possibly one of the most reliable apps on my Acer tablet. Since the Jan 30th, 2014 update, I can't view my comics.
January 31, 2014Oh man. Sorry to hear this, Rex. Can you Send Feedback (one of the Menu options) from the app so we can help you out?
As an Amazon subsidiary, you already know it's great. And for those who are Prime members, linking this to your account is super easy to do. Easy to operate. Guided view for reading is amazing, and if you don't like the default options it's all customizable. Love it. My main source of reading comics now-a-days simply because I don't have room for the physical copies anymore. Lol
I grew up loving comics but unfortunately living in Australia other than ordering each book online I don't really have an outlet for comics so this app is an absolute godsend. It's updated daily and allows me to share my account between devices so I'm able to enjoy on the go or on a larger screen on my tablet. Also the constant sales make comics affordable for anybody no matter your budget. The only suggestion I'd make is allowing the use of Google play credit other than that I'd give this app a perfect 5/7 any day
The app makes digital comics readable to even older fans like me. The guided mode assures you are reading panels and balloons in the correct order. My biggest pet peeve is the inability of the app to store the comics files on external storage. The comic files can be large, especially when downloading a graphic novel. This can quickly fill up a devices internal storage. With this ability it would be a five-star app.
This app is a great way to read comics. Although reading the comics alone is fairly easy to do, getting around the actual app is a little tricky, without much of a tutorial it's sort of a DIY thing for a while. Things that could be fixed are being able to find the redemption code bar, the amount of lists in your library, the difference between my books and library seems unless with the amount of lists in the library, and I think it would help if the comic was automatically downloaded when purchased, I don't think anyone would buy a digital comic and not download to read it.
I love this app! Although it's not as good as having an actual comic in your hand it's the next best thing. The unlimited is a great way to explore more and different genres from publishers other then the big two. Honestly feel like this app made me fall in love with comics all over again. Plus they have some pretty great sales
I downloaded the app and the first thing it asks is to sign up which I did. And it asked if I wanted to sign in with Amazon. I get most of my books from there anyway so I did. Then as soon as I did it charged me on my Amazon account..after it just said sign up for free 30 day trial...and what is it charging for? You have to buy the comic books off the app any way...waste of money in my opinion. It's just an app that will charge you to buy books from them.
