Perfect, but..

This is by far the best comic book reader I’ve used, and I love the timely Yosemite update.
My only current concern is exiting fullscreen mode crashes the app constantly, hope it gets fixed soon.


This app definitely looks better than the other readers out there but the performance is much slower than I would expect out of other apps. Work well but expect CBRs and CBZs to open in about 10 seconds.


It’s a tad on the slow side. Takes a good 10 seconds or more to load a comic. It seems to crash a lot as well. Hopefully a future update will fix issues. Overall, its ok.
