Cool idea, annoying blank white spaces however when alt text is disabled. Would be 5 stars otherwise

Nice I must say, I do constantly check xkcd for updates. This is a good looking widget with potential, however the blank white boxes when you disable text almost make that idea useless.

Not bad Nothing more than a widget. If you want control over comic history, this is not it -- use xkcd viewer app.
