Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Read xkcd comics (http://xkcd.com). Faster to load than the website, easier to navigate, and you can read the alt text (touch and hold)!
What's New in Version 3.0.1
* Fix crash during download all / delete all
* Add ability to cancel download all
Version 3.0 was a major update with lots of goodies.
This app is amazing!
Beautiful to look at, clean, easy to use, seamless viewing of the best web comic in the world! This app rocks my socks off and then burns them with its blazing hot awesomeness. It is the best thing since sliced bread, apple pie, your mama's banana bread, and Batman. All in the same room, at the same time, singing a Palestrina counterpoint. I love this app more than I love my dog, my acoustic guitar, or the brownies I am eating right now. This app developer is a genius. He should be crowned with glory and honor, and hailed as the bearer of a new age of beautiful, well- designed, well-executed apps. God bless America.
You can view the alt text. Just tap and hold the picture. This is an important feature. The one bug I found that bothers me the most is that when I try to use the download all images function, the app just crashes. Would be five stars I this was fixed.
5 stars now that the app doesn't crash when you use the download all function.
This is the better app
My only complaint about the app is that the panels are too big for the window and there's no button to get a random comic or a preview. But the app is ad-free and it has a nice interface.
In my case it took a few minutes for the comic strips to load properly. At first each comic strip hanged when I tried to view them. But after a few minutes every strip loads fine now.
