Ratings and Reviews

Update makes it Worse!

Casual Comic Reader

The new App update is horrible. It forces me to restore al my purchases, but crashes when I try to open some of them!
Instead of the zoom to focus in to each Panel, so we can read what each panel says, and look at it in detail, it is a cheap zoom, you may get when looking at any Image in your album. I may as well scan each page, from an actual Comic and put them in my IOS Photo Page.
While the older App feels smooth and easy to use, this just bugs the Comic App up.
I honestly have to ask; What was wrong with the older version of this app!?

NO JOE!? :(


Great to see this app has updated to use comiXology and you can even transfer IDW purchases made on the previous app to your comiXology account.

The reason I haven't given a 5 star review is that some of the titles that were previously available on the IDW store have disappeared and in the case of the G.I. Joe titles, the entire line is now missing.

As the app states this is the home of TRANSFORMERS, GHOSTBUSTERS, STAR TREK & G.I. JOE comics. So why are the JOE's missing from the store?

Utter rubbish


I'm rarely moved to write a review for an App, but this change forced on us by IDW is a travesty of programming. It crashes, there is no way to download an entire series, forcing an issue-by-issue download, and even this is handled very poorly with comics failing to download and only a "cancel" button on the interface. There are gaps in my collection where there are none on the comixology app, proving that account synching is a joke as well.

Certainly won't be buying any more digital comics through this woeful piece of tosh. Very, very angry with IDW.
