What's New in Version 1.2.5
Thanks again for using iComics! Here's a few enhancements to hold you over until the next batch of major updates!
- iOS 8 Today Widget
This widget shows the latest comic you opened in each collection, providing you both a quick reminder on what you were reading, as well as a very convienient way to pickup where you left off.
- Option to disable iTunes backup
If you keep all your comics on your PC, a new setting has been added in iComics settings to explictly stop both iCloud and iTunes making their own backups of those comics.
- Improved double-tap to zoom on comic pages
Double-tapping once will make the comic fill the screen, and double-tapping again will now zoom in 140% of the page size.
- Sorting Control in Grid Mode
You can now sort and filter comics both alphabetically, and by reading progress when looking at comic covers in the grid mode, as well as the list mode now.
- Sorting control is now reversible
If you prefer sorting your comics from latest to oldest, now you can!
- iOS 7 native animations
Many of iComics' custom animations have been replaced with the new animation features of iOS 7, resulting in a much more 'native' feel to the app.
- PDF reader fixes
Certain comics were loading at 90 degree rotated angles, or at a very low resolution. These issues have now been fixed.
- Swipe to delete
At the request of a user, swipe-to-delete has been rebuilt from the ground up for the new comics list view.
- Polish and Italian language support
- Additional bug fixes and general refinements
Please remember to rate the app on the App Store, and make sure to follow 'iComicsApp' on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for all the latest updates!
Smoothest reader I've used
I used ComicZeal and Comic Book Lovers pretty extensively and iComics does one thing that they (or any other comic reader) don't - incredibly smooth page turning. I've thrown huge files at this and there is just no delay in swiping pages at all. Comics import fast too. The latest update adds an AWESOME, long awaited new feature - the ability to turn off iTunes backups.
This is by far the best performing comic reader I've used, no question.
Queue Pokemon theme song...
Seriously the best app. On my iPad Air 2 it works like a charm. The comics are sharp and crisp and the page turning is fast. This is what sold me and made me completely abandon ComicZeal. Now after researching every comic reader app available, I've come to determine that this one takes the cake. I seriously believe it will soon surpass all others. And the developer is super cool on Twitter!
Useful and well-made
This is an app which surprises me by being more featureful than anticipated.
Kudoes to the developer. It's good work.
