Ratings and Reviews
Great…unless you have a Mac and want an easy way to alter metadata and organize.
You’d think that there’d be an accompanying desktop interface to organize your comics and change metadata. There is provided you have a PC and run WINDOWS. You’d think you would given there’s an iOS version right? Nope. You have very few options even in the iPad version.
Great if you don’t care about anything but filenames. Terrible if you want a coherent organizational scheme. 2 stars.
Best Comic Reader
I have a Mac and the only reason I keep a VM for Windows is ComicRack. I heave been using CR to organize my comics for a few years and couldn't wait for the iPad app. There are other comic readers, but CR allows you to organize a lot of things in Windows which then translate to the app when synced. Reading lists, smart lists, selected comics etc. The great part is, CR has a plugin that lets you get metadata for you comics with a plugin for Comic Vine.
I guess the only "problem" with CR is that there is no Mac version, but that isn't a huge issue if you have a Windows machine, run Bootcamp, or, like me, run Windows on a virtual machine on Mac.
Love The Options
Pros: I really like the color brightness and tint options. Reminds me of adjusting a picture on a TV. As far as I know, this is the only comic reader that supports this. (Super plus!) Cons: The preset menu layout is confusing for me and seems cluttered. This is easily fixed from the iPad settings menu though. Other than that, my only complaint is that it isn’t updated often enough. Worth the purchase price.
