Find a Comic but Freezes

Displays the comics nicely as a preview but freezes when trying to open using windows 10. I want to love it with the tiles feature but it misses on what it should do, read and search comics.

Best comic reader on the Windows platform

I have around 2TBs of comics and use this app a lot. I really like how it keeps my stuff organized and tracks what I have read vs what I haven't yet. I've also found the support to be really quick in address what few bugs I've discovered.

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 cbr/cbz reader. Recommend a setting to disable the screen shutting down over time while app is open

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!

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.

Very nice but

Great app for viewing comics and a must buy if you enjoy reading digital comics. On the surface 2 its a beautiful app. The one and only problem I have with the app is when its a single issue the app will not go back to the bookshelf of my other comics. It just sort of freezes. If you have a series of comics the app is flawless and it always goes to the next comic in the series
