Disappointing for the price
Decent for managing a small collection of comics. The app doesn't automatically recognize comics nor does it offer any search features, so managing a larger collection would likely be painful. Seems to frequently squish the covers of my issues down to half-height, for some reason. Page turning is slower than in some other comic readers I've tried. Pinch-to-zoom always zooms from the center of the page, rather than zooming in over the area you're pinching.
Given the price this app ends up being a bit disappointing. Comic Zeal and ComicBookLover are both better options than Comic Viewer, depending on how much money you're willing to spend.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a better comic reader.
The interface doesn't get in the wait, and the sound of flipping through digital pages is a joy.
Zooming is also good.
My only minor complaint is that it doesn't save my zoom for the next page. So for some comics, I keep zooming, then flipping, then zooming again.
Good but flawed comic reader.
This would be a great app but for one flaw: when I open a comic, it will not let me flip to the next page until I tap the fit-to-page icon. I e-mailed the developer with this flaw and his response was, huh, that's never happened before. That was months ago and no fix has been made. It's a small bug but I'll be looking for another app that doesn't have this minor but repetitive and annoying problem.
