What's New in Version 2.7.4
This app is pretty good overall. It's like Netflix for Marvel comics, with a huge back library. Comics are added about 6 months after they hit the stands. If you have a good internet connection (better than DSL, obviously) the loading times are EXTREMELY quick, and you can queue up up to 12 books to download in the background and read offline. I see why they did that, it's the reading equivalent of streaming video.
Now, the bad parts. Sorting the comics in your personal list is TERRIBLE. You can only sort by release date. Good for crossovers and such, TERRIBLE for reading whole series.
The ability to re-arrange things in your library like you can in apps like Comic Zeal would make this app PERFECT.
I like the concept, and the free content is very welcome. However it feels rough and needs improvements. Scrolling is the worst thing, compared to smoothness of Comixology. There is no smart panel to panel jump and page transitions are slow.
Lots of data is bad, like a 2005 comic listing year as 0002 on last info tab. There are no star ratings to tell you what people think overall of that issue. When finished with an issue, there is no smooth way to go to the next one. Etc.
Comixology, which hasn't had an update in a very long time, but is still the gold standard, sets the bar. Marvel, please meet it or at least integrate this pricing model with it.
UPDATE April 2016: Still poor. Doesn't support basic iOS gestures like swipe from left to go back when looking at search results. Creator names aren't clickable in tab to see more of their work. No iPad Pro support. Filter is almost unusable with a 3rd party keyboard, jumping unexpectedly. Can't click cover to see larger version in item view. Do I need to go on?
This app definitely has a lot of bugs, as other reviewers have mentioned, but I still like it a lot. If you're kind of new to the comic book scene, like myself, and want to catch up on back issues of marvel comics without hunting for them in stores or paying a fortune, paying the $10 a month for marvel unlimited is definitely worth it. There are thousands of series to choose from and they have a lot of good stuff on there. Trust me, you'll never be bored 😊
