Great reader that works on older versions


My iPad is on an older version of the software, and this was one of the few CBR readers that worked with it. Works great. I can download files through either my dropbox or thru my webserver. There is also an FTP option that I haven't used, but is another nice alternative.

Please update!


I've been using this app for years. Best PDF/CBR reader out there by far. Getting a message now that bookman may not work anymore and may slow down the iPad if not updated. Please update!

This is the best comic app there is


I have used this for years and wish they would update it. Never have an issue with it, very easy to configure. Use it for all my comic reading.
