"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 iPhone/iPad. There are a few others out there but WebcomiX has several MAJOR advantages over them.
To begin with, it contains a collection of 100+ of the most popular webcomics. Add your favourites to the Favourites screen and whenever you run the app, it tells you if there are any new episodes.
1) The comic will continue where you left off. No more reading the story backwards or bookmarking each comic, each time you read it.
2) It has a simple interface. It has buttons for Previous/Next, First/Last, Share and Goto. These work for ALL the comics so no more hunting around for the correct button on screen.
3) If a comic uses "Alt Text" then there is a button to bring that up.
4) The Library screen lists all the comics sortable by name, genre, age or whether they have been recently added. The Favourites screen allows you to choose your favourite comics for easy access.
7) 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.
It is worth noting that as we don't screen scrape 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 **

Yes, we support Homestuck and hopefully the new mobile friendly version of the animations should work. It is still, nothing to do with us though, if it doesn't work.
All comics remain the sole property of their creators. All copyright remains entirely with them. If you would like your comic removed, added or changed in any way then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you.

Ratings and Reviews
Minor issues, good overall
I love the app overall, especially the fact that it loads the actual web page. That allows the artist to get their ad revenue, unlike other screen scraper apps.
It does need some work though. The Grrl Power comic stopped registering updates a week or two ago, though you could still navigate to the new comic once you opened it. Now though, it fails to find it and won’t load at all. This issue is the one downside of an otherwise awesome app.
It’s nice to have something on my phone that isn’t a web browser to read on. That being said there’s a couple bugs that need to be worked on. When moving to the next page on some comics, the new page loads halfway up the screen so that the top fraction of it is cut off. Also, some comics that are episodic rather than a long contiguous plot (Paradox Space, for example) just don’t load on the app at all.
My favorite web comics are here, but it's impossible to navigate. I checked Safari to see what page of the comic I'm on, and I entered that into the app so I could start from there, but it won't go to the page. The "First" and "Last" buttons work, but if I can't get to anything in between without scrolling one page at a time then I'm better off with just a browser. 2 stars because at least they have the comics I read.
