Ratings and Reviews
Good but could be better.
It's great to have Tintin books available on your phone and sold for a reasonable price. The best thing is that buying the book in an additional language is only $1. So I'm now enjoying Tintin as I learn Dutch (and then French).
The not-so-bad thing is that I have to buy the book in English first. I am guessing that if my native language were French, I would have to but that first before I could buy the English version. This isn't ideal, but it's not too bad. I already have all the books in English, in printed editions.
The really bad thing is that the electronic version of the book forces the reader to use the pagination from the paper version. It would make FAR more sense to have a frame-by-frame layout, where you could just keep advancing to the next frame. As it is, you must manually zoom in to read the frame, and manually zoom out to advance to the next page, and manually zoom in again...doing this over and over and over gets really tedious.
Also, there are a very number of limited languages, while (if I remember correctly) the paper version of Tintin might be nearly the world record holder for being translated into more languages than any other book. I expect this will change as they get more books scanned in, so I'm not too worried, but I would love to use Tintin to help me learn Serbian, and improve my Spanish and Portuguese. Some day....maybe even Chinese!
Can’t get enough of this series
Stories are funny. I always come back and binge read this series and sometime lose track of time. The stories are very fun.
The support team is also amazing. Very very polite and helpful reps. I can’t wait for the future books to be released. I hope we see cross platform support like we see in “movies any where” this way I can read these titles on my laptop.
Good quality but they DOUBLE CHARGE you for the downloads.
They charge $59 for all the Tintin covers and some virtual statues from the different episodes. But then when you download the actual TIntin comic album they want $1 more for every Tintin you download if you actually want to read one. So kind of gouge you twice. Happens a lot with apps like this. But just good to have a guy let others know what they’re getting into before dropping money 💰 into something like this. The actual Tintins to read are not available. Seems like kind of a ripoff for $60.
Probably you bought the albums in a language other than English. Contact Apple to get a refund, and buy the albums in English.
