Customer Reviews


I was really disappointed with this update . The way the comics are organized could be far better , some of my comics that I bought from the older update got deleted , and just the design of the menus , etc . could use improvement . There are motion comics ( however this would be a great edition if you had the option to turn it off . One good thing however with this app is that you get some free comics but even with that I was still disappointed. I think I'd rather read a physical copy of some comics instead . Also there is no panel to panel scrolling like in previous version which is my biggest complaint about the app overall . Without panel to panel scrolling it makes it hard to enjoy reading a comic . Really disappointed. If fixed I will rate a higher amount of stars to this app but for now 2 .

paid good reviews?

Any reviews that end in! Or end in a :-) seem to be very generic and clearly made by people who never read comic books.

I own now thousands of comics, I love the IDW comics, I buy them faithfully, however I have not bought a comic book using this application since the upgrades. is very difficult to do so, even if i had liked the interface. Instead I buy them on the other applications or websites

Bad call from IDW launching this new version of the application without better testing with the target customer first.

Worse call from the developers posting fake reviews. One of the fake reviewers (german chaos) even says “the app is great and the people behind are even better!”? Who writes that?

Currently they need to work on renaming/organizing comics to make it less confusing, finding a more friendly interface. announce that you are sorry is not working out and that you are working on it and adjust the tone of the fake reviewers to make them more realistic.

Not bad, but in need of improvement

I won't lie: IDW is becoming one of my favorite comic publications. That's the reason I bought this app. Having said that, however, there are some changes that need to be made.

It'd be nice if the page fit the screen. Having to blow the page up while reading takes away part of the experience. Plus, better organization when looking for titles would be helpful as well.
Another complaint is that pages are missing from my restored purchases. I don't know what happened, but it's a problem that needs to be resovled.
