"Great app! It makes reading web comics so much easier than keeping bookmarks. It's a pain with iOS..." - A user, Germany.
"Also, I love the app!" - A user, USA.
"This app is great though, better than dealing with a PC." - A user, USA.
WebcomiX is a web comic reader for the iPod/iPhone/iPad. There are a number of others out there but WebcomiX has several MAJOR advantages over them.
To begin with, it contains a collection of 70+ of the most popular web comics which you can "subscribe" to. This puts them in your Favourites screen and whenever you run the app, it tells you if there are any new episodes.
1) If the comic is a series of "stand alone" comics, then it will always show you the latest. If it is a continuing story, then you will continue where you left off. No more reading the story backwards or bookmarking each comic you read.
2) It has a simple interface. It has buttons for Previous/Next, First/Last, Random and Goto. These work for all the comics so no more hunting around for the correct button on screen. The interface can even be minimised to allow more comic on screen (iPhone/iPod only). To go to a particular episode, tap the episode number at the bottom and enter the episode you want.
3) The Previous/Next, First/Last buttons will let you go from start to end or end to start, an episode at a time. The app knows how to work get every episode.
4) If a comic uses "Alt Text" then there is a button to bring that up. This is only visible on comics that use it.
5) It comes with 70+ of the most popular web comics ready loaded and a screen to show which are the most popular
6) The Titles screen lists all the comics sortable by name or genre. The Favourites screen allows you to choose your favourite comics for easy access.
7) iPhone/iPod users now have the option to zoom into a comic when viewed. This can be turned on or off with the iOS settings app.
8) Its free!!!
Note: Most of these functions ONLY work if you use the navigation controls supplied in the app. If you use the next/prev buttons in the comic itself then your progress will NOT be tracked. You can also turn the unread comic badge off from the settings app.
It is worth noting that as we don't screen scape the comics, the owners get their advertising revenue even when you use this app. We have one ad on the Favourites page. Any other ads that pop up belong to the comic. That is beyond our control.

What's New in Version 1.4.3
Got all comics working again. That involved removing "Girls with Slingshots" as it had finished.
Where me comics at?!
Look, all I wanted was to be able to keep track of all the web comics I read in one place. I thought your app would be able to do that, but when I looked through your library of comics, I found 1 out of the 6 I was looking for!
