Crashes in Windows 10

Doesn't Work at all in window 10

Won't find my comics.

I can direct it to the folder that holds all of my comics, but it keeps telling me there are no comics in that folder. Fix this or give me a refund.

Jerky and unrefined

Home page needs to be redesigned. Paging is jerky and resistant! Uninstalling this.

One of the best .CBR and .CBZ readers for Windows

I have been using Windows 10 Preview and after the latest update it didn't want to play nice with Comix, another premium reader I was using. I have tried 9 different readers and this seems to be the best one for the price and money. It allows you to organize your comics and it goes from one issue to another without having to stop reading or go to a menu. The zoom feature works good and I like the option of it being able to save your zoom in-between pages. Great work!

Well done comic reader, great for manga

Of all the comic apps I've tried, this is one of the best. PerfectViewer on Android is a little more customizable, but this is my favorite from the Windows App store.

Great

Best comicbookmreader for windows surface so far! Can open comics straight from harddrive with no need to import. Easy to use and makes your comics look great.

Feature packed but..

interface is a little messy and i'me not able to read PDF or epub files. I prefer Cover reader over this one. There are more features to customize reading and page layout in this one though.

Plagued with crashes, lately

I happily forked over the dough for this app because, feature-wise, ComicsJolt! simply can't be beat. It has the best user interface, the best usability features... it's the real deal. The best comics experience on Windows 8. I originally gave it five stars. Somewhere along the way, it started crashing randomly. Very randomly, like at the worst possible moment when I'm trying to read a suspenseful part. It happens on every one of my Windows 8 devices (and I have a few of them). I have to amend my rating until such time as the random crashing has been resolved. For now, I'm using a different app, but I hope I can switch back to my favorite comic-reading app soon. Initial testing seems to suggest my problems are caused by file IO errors, which occur because I try to read my comics over a mapped network drive. That makes my situation unique, and hopefully shouldn't effect your decision to purchase this app. The developer has been VERY responsive and friendly!

Ideas for improvement

Couple items to check. 1) When you make this app the default reader, it doesn't seem to have an icon when looking at the cbr /cbz files in windows explorer. It should have some form of icon to identify that comicjolt opens those files. 2) When this app is opened in multi windows view in metro, make it by default occupy ~75% of screen. 3) Smart 2 page zoom may need some work. Can each page of the 2 pages zoom to maximum height of the screen, so they appear to be the same size when reading. Currently, to seems the 2 pages are zooming differently. The cover page and first page sometimes appears to be a smaller zoom than the 2nd and 3rd page of 2 page view.

Best comic reader on Windows

Simply a great comic book reader. Works great and doesn't get in the way. It could use a couple updates to allow some windows 8.1 features and a cleaner more 'metro' home screen but no deal breakers. Download It. You won't be disappointed.
