What's New in Version 1.4.4
Updated comics feature information.
Swipe left to view more of the same comic
So the arrows take you to a completely different comic, but if you swipe left it'll keep you with the same comic just show you a different strip. Seems kind of backwards to me but it functions. I can't attest to the account issues others are having since I don't have one. I might need to get one though because it doesn't seem to save my place in each comic. I have to swipe through all the old comics to get to where I was at. There is a calendar to jump to a specific date, so I guess I can just remember my place and jump right to it.
It's not great, but it functions pretty well. I mean it's an app for comic strips. I doubt much money goes to it. I'm just glad there is one. I haven't had the app long so I haven't encountered any crashing or bugs yet. Will update if there are any issues.
Would be great if....
If were easier to use it would be wonderful. You would thinking clicking on the arrows would take you to the next comic by the artist but no, it takes you to a completely different comic. You have to use the calendar to browse more comics by the artist. That, to me, is not user friendly and not intuitive at all. I would love this app if they changed this. I would use the website on my phone, but these stupid spam alerts pop up continuously on their website.
Be nice to bookmark
Am happy with the price of the yearly subscription to get lots of comics on backlog. As for the app..
First, a "first comic" button needs to be added so I can access it without spinning the year month and day. I hope the feature of bookmarking will be added so I can return to it and continue reading. Right now I'm using the favorite button but that means I have to memorize the date and then do a couple of swipes going back to the comic and inputting the date.
