Chunky Comic Reader
By Michael Ferenduros
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Try an app that makes your comics look great, makes reading them a pleasure, and takes all the friction out of importing and managing them.
• Ultra clean and simple to use
• Smart upscaling makes even low-res comics look great
• Auto contrast/tint fixes yellow pages and faded ink
• Self-organising library - just drop in your comics and go
• Download comics in the background while you read, directly from your cloud file-storage service or the web
• Upgrade to pro, and download from your PC, Mac or NAS as well
• Parental controls let you flag specific comics as ok, and passcode-lock everything else out of sight
• Single-page or two-up page view
• Right-to-left reading mode
• Post screenshots directly to Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit
Chunky supports CBZ, CBR, CBT and PDF comics, and understands ComicRack and ComicBookLover tags.
It can browse and download directly from iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Transporter, Google Drive, OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Box, Pogoplug, Mediafire and Copy, and you can copy files in and out with iTunes on your computer or download them via the built-in web browser.
Upgrade to Pro and it'll also connect to Mac or Windows shared folders, FTP or SFTP servers, ComicStreamer, Calibre or Ubooquity libraries, and run a mini web and webDAV server you can use to copy files in and out.
What's New in Version 2.5.3
Fixes Dropbox support, plus a couple of bugs.
I love Chunky!
It’s a great app for reading comics. Unfortunately the Dropbox feature stopped working a couple of days ago. My Dropbox app itself works but I get an error message now trying to download through Chunky.
*Update* - Wow, that was fixed fast! It's perfect again! I've tried a lot of comic book readers and this is easily my favorite. Thanks for the incredbily fast response time and the app fix!
Best comic book reader on iOS
I’ve tried a number of the comic book reader apps for iOS and finally settled on Chunky. It has a responsive developer (answered a question I had, within a day), and a good feature set of bot basic and more advanced options. The interface is good and doesn’t get in the way of viewing your comics.

Exactly what I’ve been looking for. Advanced features make this one shine.
