I've enjoyed so much reading all of your great feedback! Keep it coming! This version of the app introduces a few awesome improvements I've been dying to add for a while now:
• iPhone X support
• Support for German, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Russian localizations
• 3D-touch previewing of comics from main list
We conducted a full accessibility audit to make the app more accessible for the visually impaired, and also threw in some minor bug fixes and improvements as well.
I hope you all enjoy it!!
Ratings and Reviews
By far the best way to browse XKCD. Even over PC!
I used to read XKCD pretty much every day. Then, I stopped because I was tired of navigating the difficult-to-use website on my phone. I am never in the mood to browse XKCD when I'm on my computer. This app has allowed me to rediscover the humor that I loved. The interface is easy to use. I especially like that it shows the text that appears when your mouse hovers over the comic when you're on PC. Thank you for making this ad free. Thank you for making this app so easy to use. Thank you for the image descriptions. This app is amazing. Download it now. It's free and ad free. What is there to lose?
Developer Response ,
I greatly appreciate the feedback!
This app is so amazing
For the longest time, I haven’t found a good app for xkcd on iPhone. Just did. I like that it’s open source, though I don’t have a Mac so it doesn’t matter much. Reading the comics is so easy and the link to explain is great if I don’t understand references. When I get iOS 12 I’ll even be able to see how much time I waste with webcomics. It would be cool if others (Dinosaur Comics) would be added, but I understand how much work that would be. Again, open source though so not nearly as hard as other clients could make it.
I’m going to point out the one thing that this app doesn’t do well. Everything not mentioned immediately below can be assumed to be excellent.
Comic Search isn’t great. You can search by title or number. You must search for words in the title and any extraneous words will not be ignored. Simply put, searching for comics, where it might be simpler to remember a key phrase or word in the comic itself, is difficult to impossible, depending on your willingness to memorize nearly two thousand comic titles. Simply put, I usually go to Google to find the comic I want, then return to the app with the correct title. Allow for context searching, and this review will become a perfect review.
