Customer Reviews


The last few updates were rather 'meh', but the latest is fantastic! Best xkcd reader on the App Store! Some rare comics that don't conform to the usual format still have issues (e.g. #1264 Slideshow) but that's understandable. Also it's missing a way to open the link quickly in safari/chrome, but you can still copy to clipboard and paste. Recommended for any xkcd fan.


Awesome reader, really enjoy its simplicity. Problem is i don't read xkcd regularly and would like to be able to select a particular one but have to scroll endlessly through xkcd awesomeness. It would be really helpful if there was a slide out sidebar that had a list of comics so one could select from there. Also a 'start from where you left off' option would be great too.


This app is fantastic.

Could really use a random button/stream and a one tap method to opening in safari/chrome.

Good stuff.
