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.

It's an incredibly good CBR/CBZ and PDF reader. Behind its clear interface are a number of settings that will fine-tune the reading experience (such as right-to-left reading order, old page yellowing reduction and many more).

There are two features that elevate Chunky above other comic reading apps. One: it allows you to grab and share user-defined screenshots. Two: it allows you fetch content from a variety of different locations: web, icloud and - most usefully for me - from local NAS storage. Getting content is, like everything else about Chunky - incredibly easy and straightforward.

Additionally, there are no IAPs or links to paid-for comic content - which is something else that sets itself apart from other apps of this type.

What would I like to see improve about this app? Very little. It works great and has been my favourite comic reader for ages (I've tried many and always returned to Chunky). If there was one thing I'd want it would be more options about how to organise groups of comics (the current method is fine but I'd like to organise my comics into stacks with the ability to choose the image/cover to represent each stack).

Amazingly fast and versatile comic reader


Has completely supplanted my previous go to app for comics. Well worth the pro upgrade if just for the Web server and comicstreamer functionality. Fast, easy to use and comes with a myriad of options.

Time to revisit an iPhone app?


The iPhone 6 has a similar resolution to the original iPad/2/Mini and the 6 Plus is even higher than that. Any plans to revisit making an iPhone app?
