Great comic reader
This app works great for reading .cbr and .cbz comics. The web server import is a nice feature, which is limited in the free version do other apps. Editing tags is easy. It's a good reader, that gets the job done.
One reviewer mentioned the ads popping up every few pages after the latest update. I was getting annoyed with this too, but found that it's a setting that you can turn off.
My favorite comic app of the bunch.
I've tried ComicBookLover and ComicFlow and those are both pretty good. CBL bugs me because the covers are too small. Plus it takes forever to organize titles. CF is ok but I don't like that you can't double tap to full screen. But Balloon'd is perfect. Clean. Simple. I love the layout and how easy it is to organize comics by title.
Does not load my cbz files
I have tried this App using both CBR & CBZ files. Thus far it appears to handle my CBR files well, although the screen refresh for each page is a bit slow. My CBZ files however will not upload. The files work well on many of the other reader programs. I am not really interested in changing the file extensions of thousands of files just to suit one app. If this issue can be fixed, I would give this a further look.
