Good option for Old Comicrack users but incomplete

It’s a good application with :
+ very good support of comic rack metadata ;-)
+ ability to tag the books (useful for rating or identifying broken ones)
+ unread books are identified with a blue triangle on the top right of the cover
+ keeping zoom when reading book (deactivated by default in the settings). When you reopen the same book, the zoom is lost. + a nice add on will be ability to select in the settings the default zoom between (page width or full page).

The reason I put only 4 stars is the following one. I’d like to read comic in landscape mode and with a zoom set to page width. Currently, the only missing functionality is ability to move page by a single tap on the right border. In my actual reader, a single tap scroll down and, at the bottom at the page, proceed to the next page. Currently, except if I miss something, with this app I have to slide up in order to scroll down and to see the bottom of the page, and then I have to slide left to go to the next page.

Developer Response ,

Hi Napaulleon, thanks again for your feedback. a & c) Did you already have a look into the Settings app under "Comics"? I have the suspicion that the option "Keep Zoom Level" is disabled. Enabling this should make each page the size of the previous one and, when swiping to the next page after having scrolled down, start the next one on the top b) This feature has already been in the last update (You may need to enable the option "Show Progress" in the settings) - unread comics are tagged by a blue triangle. In case this did not work, please contact me via email at so I can figure out what's happening. - DerJegge

Not quite useful

Have been looking for an alternative to the classic “Bookman Pro” which did *exactly* what I needed and nothing more. There are three important features that this one lacks. The thing is, Comics aren’t the only thing I want to read, I store books and manuals, and good luck finding them in this app out of some 1000 document images of the first page, many of which don’t have pictorial front covers. So the first lack is a list by document name. Second thing is organization- there’s more than one way to achieve this, Bookman had multiple bookshelves, so I could have one designed to select by pictorial front cover, and another shelf where I could pick from a list of document titles sorted alphabetically. And lastly, Bookman had an integrated browser you could use to download PDF files directly from the web. Or if not that, if at least there was an online import of some kind where I could use Safari to find a document and download it via some import ability directly into this app. Maybe it has all these features and I just can’t find them, the reader part of this program is fine, but selection, organization, and web integration seems weak.

Definitely the best comic book reader out there not only is it free, it also has no ads

The only problem I have is that you can’t change the page layout to read from right to left for manga other than that it’s great
