Free, open source, no ads. Simply genius. I loved it. Only defect I came up with is sorting CBs, when I sync it doesn't seem to order the files alphabetically...other than that it's just perfect and suits my needs. Thanks Sketchpunk!!

Does not work I tried to set one of the sync folders to /mnt/sdcard2, but it adds .. at the beginning, rendering it unable to sync/load any comics

Unusable Loads maybe half of the comics in the sync folders, refuses to group them in any sort of recognizable way, and has no title search function. A joke.

Needs some fixes but app has been abandoned No updates in over 9 months likely means it's game over for this app. It's a shame because this is the most promising comic reader on the Play Store. The "Functions" tab is, ironically, not functioning, so there is no way to use the reset options previously available. The long press menu tool is broken; all it does is zoom in and out, even though it's supposed to bring up a menu when in fullscreen mode. The library viewer also needs an option to automatically resize-to-fit comic covers when the screen is rotated, or else have separate options for landscape and portrait modes. Lastly, although not required it would be nice to see this app get the Material Design/Lollipop treatment, because right now it looks like it belongs on ICS or Honeycomb, instead of the latest Android OS.
