Easy and handles most needs
Contrary to some of the posts, this app does allow portrait views. The way to load multiple books at once is to use a copy/paste function from your file manager just like you would in windows. The other commenters must have been trying to load files only via the app, which is one book to read at a time. It doesn't zoom but the surface is about the same size as a comic book page so not really a big issue. Wouldn't be good on a small screen though. Reads all the usual comic formats.More
First...it needs the ability to add an entire folder of comics. Or the ability to select multiple comic titles to add at once. Adding one at a time is not user friendly in the least. Have issues on the Surface RT with reading the comic. Open the comic, cannot start reading right away. Have to wait about a minute, otherwise it'll keep flinging me back to the cover. Needs categorization...folders, if you will...for your comics. So you can lump them in by series instead of scrolling through a list of everything you have. Additionally to Categorization, it needs better organization. Putting the most recent comic you read first isn't nice. I just read it. Having to scroll to the end for the next one to read gets tedious, the more comics you have. Finally, 'discard' gets rid of -everything-, not just selected comics. This needs to be fine tuned. The first and last being changed would make it an immediate 4 stars for me.More
I only need one basic function: ZOOM. I literally can't read any of my comics using this app. If it had the zoom function, it would be fine. Uninstalling immediately. Don't waste your time with this!More
Good but not fully there yet
Library is a bit unwieldy, but the reader is nice and smooth. Could benefit from a folder system and a ordering. Comics frequently appear out of order despite the file names being in order.More
Very Nice easy to use and fast some downfalls thou
This App needs a 2 page/Open book view and it will be thee most solid comic book reader in the entire store ill give it 5 stars when that is inMore
Great app but...
This is a probably the best app for reading comics on the windows surface but it is missing some key features. The two most important ones are: 1. The ability to zoom I on the pages, and 2. The ability to submit a folder, or several comics at a time. trying to import an entire arc of a couple hundred comics can be very tedious and frustrating on this app.More
nice effort, not so great results
Had a lot of hope when I downloaded, but not the greatest. Doesn't seem to have a zoom function, and as is, most comics are too small for my screen for comfortable reading. App also crashes quite often. Hopefully some improvements come. App was free, so not really complaining, as much as I am just commenting.More
Good for a free app. Room for improvement
I can't complain really because this is free and you can read your cbr/cbz comics using this. If the devs are ever inclined to improve it, there are some things that would make it a better experience and probably good enough to charge for. First being able to add by folder. The ability to make collections. Pinch & zoom. Tap to advance/back a page. Finally, better swipe to advance the page in portrait in particular. Can't swipe far enough with thumbs while holding my tablet in portrait.More
Not worth it
This app is missing a basic, yet necessary feature: FIT TO SCREEN! If you're viewing comics on a Windows 8 laptop (like me), you won't be able to read almost anything because you can't zoom into the pages. Where is the simple zoom function??? Also, as soon as you open the app, it says "Add from the app bar"... for someone (like me) who doesn't know what the "app bar" is this can be very confusing. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out that you have to swipe up.More
Best one I have used so far
This is really great, only things I would like to see are, zooming and some way to organize a bunch of imported comics.More
