Comic Zeal Comic Reader
By Bitolithic Pty Ltd
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Do you want the most features? the best reading experience? Comic Zeal 8 has them both. It was the first comic reader in the App Store and after six years of constant development it’s still the best.
• Organize your collection how YOU want. Put series inside series, use dividers to manage long lists.
• Automatically sorts your comics into series.
• Page zoom AND position lock so you avoid seeing the same borders page after page.
• Automatically opens the next comic when reading.
• Smart with device rotation, many comics have a mixture of portrait and landscape pages.
• Search by comic title and tags.
• Parental lock for individual series.
• WI-Fi using a web browser on a PC or Mac.
• Drop Box, iCloud Drive, etc using iOS 8 document sharing.
• AirDrop from a Mac running Yosemite.
• iTunes via USB or Wi-FI
Comic Zeal uses the innovative slider, it's a pointer, a container and a toolbox, all in one. You can push stuff into it, then go anywhere in your collection and drag it out. It's an incredibly fast way to organize your comics.
With the slider you can:
• Reorder comics, put them into the slider in the order you want them, then drag them out.
• Create reading lists (by making copies of comics that don't take up any space on your device)
• Create series and dividers right in the app. Dividers are lists that can hold comics, series and even other dividers.
• Tap the ‘i’ info icon for comics, series and dividers. You can rename entries, sort a series or mark items as read or unread.
• When zooming, hold the gesture for half a second. Comic Zeal will lock that zoom and position when you turn the page, it's a great way to hide borders.

What's New in Version 8.0.7
Hi all, as always, as soon as the app goes out to you all, you find bugs that the beta testers and I missed!
Here is what's fixed in this update:
- Fixed issue where some of the files in the 'iCloud Drive and other apps’ screen were greyed out.
- Fixed issue where text couldn’t be selected during editing.
- For series and dividers in grid view the name is now shown instead of info about their contents.
- Fixed ‘it’s’ in the tutorial, now says ‘Tap on the slider to see its options’.
Please note, the Box app does not allow other apps to access its document sharing extension unless you have an enterprise level account with them.
Great Comic Reading app! Worth the money.
Great app for reading and sorting and storing digital comics. This is worth buying.
Reading is very iOS standard and does a great job of page turning/flipping. It’s very fast too. It handles rotation and zooming and scrolling very very well.
It’s a great app and I love it, I gave it 5 stars. I’m pointing out some of the difficulties below, since it’s a $5 app I thought I’d get a little nitpicky before you buy it.
The menu is a slightly different interface than many other iPad apps, but you’ll get used to it. Selecting and sorting is different in a way that KIND of makes sense, but the standard delete (swipe to left) isn’t supported. If you swipe wrong it actually tells you not to swipe that way instead of just doing the swipe which is kind of strange (it seems like they only support one kind of swipe so why they are particular, I’m not sure).
You have to drag your comics over via iTunes. You can sort of get to your DropBox/Box files, but it’s inconvenient, from that app and download and select “open in…” but it’s awkward and slow, especially if you want to do more than one.
Absolutely, hand-down, the BEST Comic reader available.
I’ve been reading my comics exclusively in a digital fashion since 2010, and CZ has been my trusty partner since that time. With this latest version (and frequent updates), Emiliano is really outdoing himself.
The onboarding video, the general ease of use (including the brilliant “slider" implementation), the multiple up/sideload options, the gorgeous book rendering…it’s all here.
Folks, trust me and don’t even bother looking at another reader. This is your solution.
The best comic reader.
Idk why anybody is giving 1 star ratings to this awesome app. I have no issues what so ever syncing comics. I purchased this app years ago and it continues to get updates and improves on every release. I would happily purchase a comic zeal 2 just to support the developer. Easily one of the best developers in the App Store. Instead of throwing 1 star ratings around for your own issues you should try reaching out to the developer. 1 star ratings are discouraging.
