I didn't like the fact that this app doesn't save the last page that was read, and you have to go through the whole comic. The changing of pages also sucked, the app didn't respond sometimes.

Could've been perfect It was very hard to turn the page via swiping. Although, the volume button navigation is nice, I still would've liked swipe navigation. It's the best looking comic book reader that I've tried so far.
