Good, but prices!
This is a good app, in the sense that it has a large variety of comics (although sometimes I can't find the VERY old Spider-Man comics), but the prices are larger than inflation would tell us (I know this happens to a lot of things). For example, the oldest Spider-Man comics cost about $0.12. If we followed the same inflation trend, each comic would be worth about $0.87! Instead, each comic costs $1.99 or more! They should at least only be $0.99 (The old ones). That's my only complaint. But overall, great! P.S. If you plan on buying all the comics here, be ready to spend well over $200, easily maybe $400 (I haven't done all the calculations for the last estimate). Worth it only if you're going to buy select comics.
Can't download purchase
I've spent the last hour trying to download issue number 1 of the 2013 guardians of the Galaxy. I keep getting an error message that says the file I'm trying to download is corrupt or doesn't exist on the server! This was the where the app directed me, someone new to comics, to start off with. Also, when navigating through the app, you leave the page for a quick peek at another section, and when you return you are back at the top of the page, making you scroll all the way back down to where you left off. Please fix these annoying aspects and I will change my rating!
Downloading takes forever
The concept is amazing, access to tons of issues for relatively cheap. But wow does it take forever to download. An hour in and I still only have 22mb downloaded of a 43mb issue and my internet speed is 30+Mbps. Marvel seriously needs to overhaul their server.
Also, some issues in a series are missing for no reason. Large gaps of missing Amazing Spider-man comics, for example. Hopefully those are added in the future so the selection from each series is more complete.
