I give Marvel Unlimited 5 stars, but i give its app 2 because there always seems to be an issue. I've noticed i still need some sort of connection to use the offline library most of the time. My library that had roughly 400 issues in it got cleared and I tried rebuilding it but it clears as soon as i open the app again. The new read unread section was awesome, but it only seems effective when you have stuff in your library... Update: i sent an email regarding my issue a little over a week ago. I have not been responded to and the issue continues.
Good... When it works It's been surprisingly easy to make the digital transition. It's easier on my bank balance. I can speed through events as quickly as I want. There's a great slide transition between panels. Or you can set things up to view the while page - but that involves more pinching and zooming. The downside is the app just isn't reliable. I'm frequently forced to sign in. It's very difficult to find the actual book I'm looking for. I have to add them on my desktop. Should be a lot better, Marvel.
It's gotten much better... but it depends on the comic As long as you stick with issues from the last ~15 years or so, it's great on phone or tablet. But anything older is a craps shoot, smart panel may work or it may totally fail. But overall the service is worth it, and they're improving the app frequently 👍
Got comics? If you like spending money on an app where most of the time you get the unfortunatly this app has stopped working message, then get this app! I have had it for months now and if i can get through one comic without the app crashing i feel lucky! Its a terrible app to navigate. Doesnt keep track of what you read and a lot of the comics on here are not sized properly so you can be missing chunks of pages. Some zoom in per panel which is great while others do not. It could use a lot of work.
The app is TERRIBLE. -Guided View is broken on lots of older books. -No way to know if a book has downloaded. I find myself on the subway staring at a loading screen every time I try to download a handful on my way out of the house. -Interface is generally awful. -Always need to log in again. -Crashes frequent. -Sometimes just doesn't work at all. (The web app is pretty crap, too. At least the iThing app is usable.)
Love this app! I would give it five stars, but it does occasionally break (usually fixed pretty quickly). Also some of the comic events seem to be in the wrong order, I started looking up some stuff on Marvel Wiki.
