What's New in Version 4.0.26

Dear Customers, just some bug fixes and a small change to Assisted Panning this time.

Here's what's new:

- Fixed issues where pages at the max zoom-out were appearing off center.
- Fixed issue where the right comic wasn't being shown when the comic selector was bought up.
- The collection view now scrolls to the currently viewed comic at the top level too
- Fixed manga mode issues where the wrong side of landscape pages was being shown
- Fixed manga mode issues with assisted panning.
- Assisted panning now only moves 70% of the way across so there is some overlap between the previous view and the current one.

It would mean the world to us if you would update your reviews to reflect the improvements in this new version.

5/5 stars
Very nearly a killer app

Updated again, for version 4.0.26, upgraded from 2 stars all the way to 5

They fixed it! I have my Comic Zeal back, and with the additional improvements in recent versions to transfer speeds, I have my ideal comic reader. This is simply the best comic reading experience there is -- possibly including printed comics. Others gimmick it up with transitions and whiz bang panel-to-panel pans and swoops -- but that ain't comics. Comics should be as they've always been: static enough to be under the absolute control of the cooperative and committed reader.

Dear comics producers: stop apologizing for being comics. It's a great art form and a great storytelling medium. Embrace it for what it is, and let us enjoy that tension between creator and reader -- the magic that happens between the panels.

Comic Zeal makes it happen more smoothly and with less obstruction than anything else on any electronic gizmo.

Updated for version 4.0.21, downgraded from 4 stars to 2

Recent versions have added a very unpleasant bug: every page is shunted a little past the right edge of the screen, cutting off several pixels. I could deal with that, except that it also seems more unresponsive to pinch scaling. Every turn of a page is a little more aggravating than the last. I'm going to be shelving this app for now, and give it another look at the next update.

End Edit

This is an almost perfect comic-reading experience. I'd had the iPhone version, and could see the potential in it ... But would quickly tire of all the zooming and scrolling. On the iPad, it is a great experience: closer to reading the dead tree editions than I could have guessed, minus the stress of trying to keep the scotch tape from catching the covers. The artwork comes through clear, readable, and far more detailed than I would have guessed.

The synchronization is one thing that keeps me from a 5-star rating. It's just too slow, often taking nearly a minute per book, and if I let iTunes back up my iPad, I have to just leave it running overnight while I sleep.

Finally, this is clearly an app for comics nerds, so I say embrace that: add in some metadata editing for the books. I'm positive that a large contingent of my fellow comics nerds would spend hours entering in artist, author and plot-based info into their collections. Another big plus would be something where you could note whether you have the printed books, and what condition they are in.

5/5 stars
The best app for comic lovers

The best compliment I can pay this app is that it does it's job. It doesn't get in the way of the comic.

Reading comics on the iPad has changed my life, it's the greatest thing ever!!!

5/5 stars

This is the perfect app for reading comics. The program is easy to use and the syncing from my home computer to my ipad is fast and simple. It also does a great job of cataloguing. This is the only app I've paid for and it's worth every penny. Highly recommended!
