Editors’ Notes

With synchronized sound effects, music, motion, and layered illustrations, Madefire Motion Books aren't your average comic books. Whether you’re swiping through panoramic pictures, watching characters’ speech bubbles appear, or even making choices that affect the story, it’s clear that what Madefire does can't be repeated on physical paper. Each of Madefire’s immersive Motion Books sits somewhere between full-fledged animation and comics—and each is bound to leave a lasting impression.

4 Stars for now

I like this app but haven’t tried the motion comics yet. 🙂 The reason I rated 4 was because I see the last time this app was updated was a year ago❓ Each time the left upper corner red button appeared, I clicked on it and the app crashed. 🤨 Any plans to update your app or fix the crashes? I’d buy more comics but....

Best comic book app

This app is by far the best comic book app I’ve ever gotten. The prices are mostly fair, (maybe a bit much but in a store it would probably cost more) and if you don’t have enough money to buy that top notch book, there are always free stuff to download and read. There are also a wide veriety of topics to browse from, like horror, marvel, DC, etc. I also like how you can sighn up so that you can read your books that you got on multiple devices. I’d recommend using an iPad, but again, you can save your books on multiple devices. Overall, this is a pretty good app, and I’d recommend trying it, just remember to sighn in or sighn up(if you’re new) before purchasing anything.

Also, some added stuff could be wishlist, gifting (through maybe email?), and in- store credit (pay for a book and a quarter of that can go to your next) Also reviews (you wanna know what you’re paying for is worth it)
