If you have trouble turning the pages increase the tap boundary in settings! Other wise so pleased to find an open source comic/zine reader that doesn't snoop or use adverts. Also had the best native page fit to screen of all the readers. Particularly good if you like to read old comic and magazine scans! Unfortunately there are a few bugs re finding SD cards and some clunky navigating re page flips. Would like page turning via volume button also enabled. Otherwise thanks!

Open Comic Reader is legit, I use it to read many comics. I don't know what the low star reviwers are using, but I tried a few and this is the one I stuck with. Not having ads is most important. Great app.

from what i can tell there is no way to organize comics, sort comics or reorder comics. this makes it tough tonise of you have a big library. There is a similar issue listed on github, that was 4 years ago. I will check back in a year or so. i would like to see this become a full open source comic manager.
