Big catalog, plenty of DRM-Free comics and GuidedView makes reading a pleasure! For comic fans, this is the ultimate application, because comiXology is easy-to-use, has GuidedView for comfortable reading and even offers comics without DRM (digital rights management - copyright protection) from a large number of publishers. I used to purchase digital comics from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics, but since I found out that comiXology is offering DRM-free comics, I stick to the publishers offering such content via comiXology...
Useful to an extent.... Really great to have comics on hand digitally... As long as you have some sort of data connection. Don't understand purpose of downloading comics to device but you'd still need internet to view it. To be fair if you access app starting with internet and the connection drops you'll still have access to the comics on device if you wait a few minutes for it to load each time. Little annoying that you need to go to website to change payment methods, too. Still pretty convenient.
Needs one critical function but otherwise perfect When I first started getting into comics I looked far and wide for s great online distributor and comixology is the very best and that goes double for the app. This is especially true with the degrading of the functionality of the on-site comic reader. The one thing this app really needs is the ability to send the comics I download directly to my SD card. Because i can't do that I cannot hold all of the comics I want to read on my phone at once without sacrificing speed and s lot of necessary space
Handy but not perfect With its undeniably massive library of classic and brand new titles this is by far the best app around for comics reading. My only criticism comes from Comixology's trademarked Guided View system which attempts to give a cinematic view to your book of choice. It obscures the edges of panels (sometimes cropping away vital details) for the sake of convenience. The only workaround is to not use Guided View at all, which simply doesn't allow for a fun viewing experience on a smaller screen such as a phone.
I would of gave this app 5stars if it would take Google play card for payment too. Because I had this for my iPod and I was able to download comics so I got it for my Android phone and since Android uses Google play I can not download any new comics. But other then that I like this app.
A Comic Lovers Dream Anyone who reads/collects comics will love this app. No more store visits and having to house a giant collection in boxes that take up rooms.
