Not Perfect, But Good Enough

Most frustrating App does not work well at all. Doesnt find your comic files but makes you find them and sometimes doesn't even show them at all. When trying to flip a page sometimes it will flip to the same page your on a dozen times or so, fix for this is exit the app, reload it, find the comic, find the page and hope it doesn't happen again. It oftentimes will. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.

Clean, but missing important features Overall I like the clean UI but it is missing some important features like zooming and some basic library functionality. I'd like to set a default location for my comic files and a way to mark comic books as (un)read.

Gets the job done, but nothing fancy No zoom is a bit frustrating. When I create a bookmark and then later try to use the bookmark to go back to where I was, it crashes. If I go to a different app and then later go back to this one, it starts from the beginning like I opened the file for the first time. Might need to look for a better comic reader... Just found Challenger Comics Viewer....much better. Truth.
