Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This app seemed to be particularly slow, and it finally locked up my iPad fairly solidly, to the point when I had to switch the device off and on again before I could even close down the app. I suspect memory leak problems (disclaimer: I develop apps as part of my day job). I'm sure Dark Horse will resolve these initial problems in their next release though.
Other than that, the interface is similar to other comic apps such as Xcomics and the Marvel app (which are basically the same app, re-skinned) and therefore easy enough to use. The catalogue is a bit scarce at the moment, but it is of course early days. I'm pleased Dark Horse have finally taken the plunge - the iPad is my primary way of comic-reading these days, so more to choose from is always welcome.
As with the other reviews, it's impossible to work with it freezing and crashing so much. Then again, it could be because if the enormous strain on their servers from the Mass Effect special offer. I'll reserve judgement until another week has passed.
UPDATE: now that the special offer is over and the servers are unburdened, the app works very well.
The store section has a nice layout and is divided by series. The collection section shows all the books available on your account that you haven't already downloaded, and the bookshelf section shows all the books you've downloaded. When you add a book to download, it starts off grey and slowly lights up from the bottom - much nicer than any progress bar.
I like the UI and everything (now) works very smoothly. Reading the actual comic books also uses the same kind of controls as every other book app - touch or swipe the sides to turn, and the centre to open up settings. It even has a mode to zoom in on each frame and slide between the frames, making it easier and more fun to read.
Did have a few teething problems in the early days but now is very stable. As a huge fan of Star Wars i'm loving buying a lot of graphic novels for this app, some i keep in the archive, 20 or so i like to download and read when i have some free time. The panel zoom works very well, books are easy to download or archive.
Its great to have a lot of novels on your iphone/ipad, app works really well. Shame the latest digital comics are the same price as the 'real' ones though as they originally started off a dollar cheaper which sounds fair. But overall a great app, they keep adding more and more books to it which is great.
