What's New in Version 2.4.1
This release contains some bug and crash fixes that popped up in the last release.
New in 2.4
- Swap reading modes with ease with DOUBLE TAP TO TOGGLE SMART PANEL!
- Personalize your reading experience with SHOW FULL PAGE FIRST & LAST FOR SMART PANEL!
- Read comfortably in any orientation with a new LANDSCAPE READING MODE!
- Experience a brand new design for the READER!
- Download books more reliably, online or off with improved BOOK DELIVERY and READ OFFLINE!
DOUBLE TAP TO TOGGLE SMART PANEL
Now you can double tap anywhere on the page to jump into Smart Panel. When it's on, double tap anywhere to turn it off.
Oh, and your Smart Panel preference now saves universally. Set it however you want and it'll stay that way the next time you open a book.
We also fixed an issue where Smart Panels weren’t showing as large as they should on the iPad.
SHOW FULL PAGE FIRST & LAST FOR SMART PANEL
Sometimes when using Smart Panel it can be difficult to tell when you've started a new page. We've added two new options in the reader: Show Full Page First and Show Full Page Last. When you have these options on, the reader will show the whole page before or after the Smart Panels so you can get a better view of the art and page layout before walking through panel by panel.
To turn these new options on, open any book, tap the Menu icon in the top right and you'll see them under Smart Panel. These also save universally, so set it and forget it.
LANDSCAPE READING MODE
Previously when you turned your device into landscape, it would put two pages up side by side. This wasn’t the most helpful view, so we replaced it.
Now when you turn your device into landscape, the page you're reading will be fit to the width of the device and you can manually pan up and down by dragging. It makes the art big and beautiful and we wish we had a better way to describe it here. Just go try it. It's awesome.
NEWLY REDESIGNED READER
Thanks to all these improvements, we were able to go back and simplify the interface of our reader. We made the loading bar smaller and added a reading progress bar so you can get a general idea of how far through a book you are at a glance. You'll find just two buttons on the top menu: All Pages and Menu.
The All Pages screen got a redesign to match the brand new web reader on Marvel.com. Consistency!
IMPROVED BOOK DELIVERY & READ OFFLINE
We made a ton of improvements to how we create and deliver our digital comics. What does that mean for you? Pages should load more reliably when you're online, and Read Offline books should download faster. In a previous update we improved Read Offline to make it more reliable and for most users it was. But "most users" wasn't good enough, so we took another pass at it. Now it should be even better.
Our goal is for you to read and enjoy our comics, so we'll never pop up a request for reviews in the app. If you love MU, please take the time to leave us a review on the App Store.

Previously wrote a 2-star review of the first version, thought it was only fair to update to say it's been getting better with regular updates. Only remaining issue for me seems to be if the app's been running a while in the background, it seems after a while no new comics can be downloaded until the app's closed and restarted (ie open list of running apps with double-tap of button and swipe to remove, then open again).
If there was one single feature I'd like to add, it'd be to read crossover storylines like AvX or Civil War in the official order, it's a pain navigating through half a dozen comic titles one by one.
All that aside this is an amazing service that I can't recommend enough. :)
The app worked pretty well on the previous version, quite slow to download offline but other than that worked great. This update is a nightmare. I haven't read a single comic since it updated. It takes forever for a single page to load, and half the time the comic closes before I'm on page 4 as it won't download. It'd be 5 star if it worked, because Unlimited is a fantastic service.
Not working on iPhone 6
Was good before the update, the new update has made it almost unusable, been trying to download a comic for days!!!!! Fix soon or will end my membership!!!!!
