• Upgrade to pro, and download from your PC, Mac or NAS as well

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.
What's New in Version 2.5.3
Fixes Dropbox support, plus a couple of bugs.
Very well done! Very easy to use!
This is a wonderful app. I just started using it as a cbr reader a few days ago and am floored with how well this works. So easy to use. Very customizable. I paid for the upgrade, despite not needing to (though the boarder crop is a welcome feature) just to support the devolper.
So many minor touches that really bring it home for me. The color enhancer is great for older issues, and the ability to save images that you can select is AWESOME! Really well done.
Been looking for a Comicrack replacement since that app won’t be updated anytime soon. Chunky Pro is a very good replacement so far. I use this app nightly and have not had any crashes or other problems. Loading books is a real pain. There are plenty of options, with the google drive option being the only workable one for me. I would love to see an easier loading process and list division in the future, but this is by far the best available reader right now.
I love Chunky!
It’s a great app for reading comics. Unfortunately the Dropbox feature stopped working a couple of days ago. My Dropbox app itself works but I get an error message now trying to download through Chunky.
*Update* - Wow, that was fixed fast! It's perfect again! I've tried a lot of comic book readers and this is easily my favorite. Thanks for the incredbily fast response time and the app fix!
