Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Need to know the value of an old issue of Superman or The Avengers? Want to see what the price is for the first comic book legend Stan Lee did for Marvel Comics? Missing a few issues of Batman, The Amazing Spider-Man, Hulk or other some other hero and can't remember which ones? Have a variant zombie cover or pile of old horror comics you need to know more about?
Stay up-to-date with Zap-Kapow! As new issues and price updates are released every month, you'll never need to lug around a bulky comic book price guide or other reference material again.
Search Zap-Kapow's library of over 172,000 issues for publisher, writer, artist and price guide info as well as to see (and save) covers to make sure you're referencing the right comic book. From The Walking Dead to Iron Man, superheroes, horror or cartoon comic books, Zap-Kapow has it all!
Monthly updates are available as in-app purchases that add over 1,150 new issues and variants to the 172,000 that are already there, as well as updates to the prices themselves. Any update gives you ALL the updates. Skip a few months and then your 99-cent in-app update will still give you all the months you missed. Update every month, or whenever you want for the same price and get the latest ... it's completely up to you!
NOTE: A few folks have also mentioned in the reviews that they couldn't find titles they were searching for. Nearly 9 times out of 10 they're misspelling it (i.e. "Spider-Man" not "Pider-Man"). Spelling is important.
Also just want to make it super-clear that we actually read and reply to ALL e-mails and questions we're sent. Every one of them. So if you are having an issue, can't find a title, etc., please hit us up at email@example.com and we'll troubleshoot, update and otherwise go out of our way to remedy your issue. We'd much prefer that opportunity to a negative review that is usually a misunderstanding or just plain inaccurate.
And, just to double-down on the above's explanation of how updates work, monthly price guide updates are NOT REQUIRED to use this app. If you update to be current down the line once or never is up to you, but you have access to 172,000+ issues from the day you purchase it on.
Thanks, see you in the 25-cent bins!
What's New in Version 3.0
• Fixed issue with app connecting to database after update to iOS 8.1.1.
• Updated look and feel for iOS 8.
• Fixed issue where Favorites did not total correctly based on condition selected.
• Various other bug fixes and speed enhancements.
I thought this update was supposed to fix the books you had in favorites? It completely screwed up mine. It said my issues went from being worth $1500 to $69. Nice. Let's hope that's a glitch.
Something's Wrong :(
I was happy with the previous version, but something's wrong with the most recent update. For one, I can no longer see the value of my collection in the Favorites > Have section. But even more than that, I cannot even search comics now... Please fix :(
This version crashes frequently. No idea how to make it start working after a crash. It just won't start again.
The devs need to put some time into testing their app before release.
