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.
Long overdue fixes for OneDrive. Sorry about the delay.
Ratings and Reviews
Great but a couple of things could be better
Chunky is by far my favourite comic reader. It does not have some of the frills found in other readers but it has everything needed to make a fine reading experience.
That said I would suggest a way to resize the comic images in group view. Also, I have a large collection and I would really like a selected favourites.
Also I have a bug that stops 5*. I get ‘cannot open null’ when I open the app after waking my iPad. I understand that this is not the place to report bugs but I did email the dev and have not heard back.
Best comic reader by miles
I paid for this app pro unlock after only a few uses, it’s that good!
Managing your collection is super easy. You can create custom groupings, rename them, reorder, split, delete, etc. You can open each comic exactly where you left off.
I can download my comics from Google Drive and Dropbox within the app, which is amazing! The autocropping, scaling, tinting, panning, is all fantastic and can be switched off or customised to my liking.
The choices for page transition effects are neat and you can even completely customise the colour scheme for the app which is something I was every app offered.
This app is what got me reading comics as a hobby and I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
Excellent with all features I hoped for
Files app support, WiFi sync, easy imports, simple design that gets out of your way...
Good stuff. I’m thankful for the work you have put in.
What I would like to see:
The automatic sync with the iCloud folder is great and if you could add an option where my existing comics or directly downloaded to iPad comics could sync back to the folder or another folder, that would be perfect.
Or add an option of automatic backup to preferred cloud service / folder like in Notability.
I don’t think it’s easy enough to move files back to the cloud at the minute.
