This app was the best viewer for windows phone imo, but now it crashes every time I open it. Please fix it?

Its a great app. Allows you to see all the older xkcd. Mouse over text function is very simple to use.

Best xkcd app in the Marketplace if you ask me. Full screen. Tap for alt-text. Swipe through comics. No ads. Perfect!

Awesome app! Only two things could make it better, a way to show/hide the alt-text (so you don't see it right away) and the ability to see xkcd what-if ^^ (that would be amazing)

Does what it claims

Would be nice if you could zoom in on the comic rather than just having a static image. And/or if clicking the image would link to the website. Live tile does not seem to be working. It did not update me for the Sunday (10/28/12) comic. Update 11/09/12: Zoom in was added so larger comics are now actually readable. Added another star. Also, Live tiles are working for now. I would go 4.5 stars if it'd let me. Not perfect yet, but very nice. Thanks!

Picture Zoom?

So far awesome, my only issue is that some of the pictures are hard to read and there isn't a good way to zoom in....
