It is very good. There are a couple of things that could be done better when using Samba to host your comics: 1. If you accidentally select a comic, it starts to download. There is no option to cancel. 2. When refreshing the Library it can take a very long time. Fair enough but.. You can't pause it and meanwhile you can't use the app. Can't it refresh in the background? One more thing .. It would be nice if you could choose a page as cover from within the app. I'm quibbling though. It's a very good app. Thank you.
Works well on cbr. Displays a magnifier on epub that doesn't seem possible to turn off. Could use a goto page x function. By magnifier i mean a small rectangle on screen that displays a magnified portion of the text. Like a small floating magnifying glass. Something has changed though, it used to be on permanently now it shows if you touch the screen then disappears after a few seconds.
My only complaint is the Google drive library access. It takes forever to sync. Looks like it downloads the file to get the info, then re-downloads the file when you want to read it. Downloading the file temporarily to read it I have no problem with, but the info sync takes forever. Wish there was a way to just point the library to my google drive folder it get the name and cover and not have t download every file and extract it. Makes it really really slow. I just want to stream the file from google drive. Hope this makes sense. :)
My favorite reader. If you're the type of person who likes to tweak every preference setting, Challenger will satisfy. I found the number of settings overwhelming at first, but the built-in help file covers the basics. Free, ad free, and even has advanced features like syncing a folder from Google Drive or a Samba share. The home screen icons are a bit dated, design wise, but that's honestly my only real complaint and the author's energy obviously is better directed into the app's functionality. Not quite as intuitive as ComicRack, but donation driven, no pop-ups or nagging, and similarly feature rich. Plus, it's still actively being developed, unlike ComicRack. Outclasses even other paid comic readers.
Makes reading your cbr easy. No complicated controls. Easy to browse for other books in your directories. Best thing is that the resizing controls are accurate. You don't just get fuzzy if you zoom in. This was the best app I found after trying others that were unsatisfying. It's a keeper!
Love the way it indexes and previews folders and comics. I simply upload the comics on a 64GB sd card (no need for network access) and presto! I have tons of comics to read during a holiday. It's awesome, which is why it is such a shame that the interface looks totally garbage on a tablet. 5 stars nonetheless, also because its free (without the usual ads nonsense)
