What's New in Version 1.4.0
Fix for iPhone 6/6S Plus image sizing.
Ok but could be better
This app is ok - I can pick my favorite comics and read then each day, but the navigation could be better. The little up/ down arrows to go between the comics are too small and too close together. Instead, why can't you swipe up and down between strips like you can swipe side to side between dates? Also, if I missed yesterday's comics, I'd like to be able to pick a date and stay on that date all the way through my list. Now when I change to a new strip, it defaults back to today.
Finally got a fix
They finally fixed the tap to zoom so I upped my rating. Glad to be able to get my comics in a readable size on my phone again but it seems they don't zoom quite as much as they used to.
Still needs work
Beginning with the update just before the latest one, the app sticks on "loading for the first time". I can override it by selecting My Comics, but I have to sign in every time I open the app. Prior to the updates, I only had to sign in once and it saved my info. The app is more trouble than it's worth now.
