Has lots of functionality but is choppy and lags. Has lots of functionality but is choppy and lags, especially when scrolling or editing, not very aesthetically pleasing to look at but could be worse. Mono mal has same functionality, better appearance and less lag.
Great app Overall great app and perfect for helping me keep things up to date. Can force close sometimes and can be a bit of a pain to add stuff sometimes but all in all best in market.
Not perfect CONS: - For Anime/Manga info, it loads their MAL web pages, meaning it is extremely slow and annoying to look at the synopses and details of different anime/manga. This is supposed to be an app, not a web-browser. (the app 'MAL for Android' does it right here) - Only sorts lists by title. It would be better if I could sort my lists by Score, and even # of episodes watched (again, 'MAL for Android' does these) and Date started. - Needs more customizable settings PROS: - nice, clean, easy interface - Easy to update - update right on your list without having to go to the anime/manga's page - Edit all your details (from tags to preferred fansub group) right through the list page, so it's fairly fast and easy. - choose to show pictures on list page, or to hide them for faster loading - shows tags on list page (only handy if you use the tags, otherwise it wastes space) BOTTOM LINE: If you're only going to update your list, this is the best MAL app that I've come across. HOWEVER, if you are going to browse for other anime/manga, this is definitely not the fastest or most convenient app for that, at least not at the moment.
Options at the cost of speed After trying the likes of myanimelist lite and "MAL for Android," I must say that I like this one the most out of all the apps of its kind. It lacks the speed of "MAL for Android," but, offers the ability to edit even more details (start date/end date, tags, comments, etc.). Furthermore, when it loads anime/manga info pages, it loads the PC version of the website, not the mobile version, meaning searches will take longer to complete. Consider it a balance of both.
Not bad, but doesn't show manga. I like the details I can get from MALO, but my manga list doesn't show and I can update faster from the MAL site. Some fixes could make this great.
Force closes constantly First of all, let me say that I love this app. It is the best myanimelist app out there, especially for tablet users like me. However, after opening the app and doing something else for roughly 15-20 minutes, upon re-opening the app, it will force close without fail. It's quite annoying. From there, the app can just be restarted, but having to force close it every time I open it is just silly. Still gonna use it, just wish this issue could be fixed. I'm running cm7 on a kindle fire, if that helps at all.
* Fixed Android number textbox bug where editing it by keyboard would not change the value (Special thanks to Duckys for pointing out this bug)
The TiKi Clan is fun and has been around sinice 2011 but this is only the start.
