RE: Needs Improvements
Johnny Storm write:
The default setting on the Comics app is 500 MBs, but you can easily increase that in the Settings > Manage Storage. Also know that you can always download your comics again, for free.
Best build so far...
Comixology is arguable the most used app on my ipad, and one of the reasons I have such loyalty to ComiX isn't because of their variety (which is vast) but their interaction and loyalty to their users. This latest build is proof positive that they are the best in the business.
Fernando dos Santos write:
The Guided View technology is the best way to enjoy comic books on a small. That being said, there are problems with the app and the service that have to be considered before paying for apps on Comixlogy.
The app is slow to launch, taking about 60 seconds to get past the splash screen. Once the app is loaded up you might as well set it down and come back about 5 minutes later. That because the app needs to update it content. All of it seems from prices to titles. This is understandable, but the time it takes even over a strong Wi-Fi network seems to be too much. Plus it does this every time the app is launched. So even after going through the update process, when the app is launched later that day or just a few moments later, it'll update itself again!
And if you have no Internet connection available to, then the app just stalls and crashes. This leaves you without access to your downloaded comic library.
Now all that can be overlooked because of the wide range of titles and genres available here. But what can't be overlooked is the lack of content backup. Digital comics can be priced as high as $9.99. So your digital library can be pricey. Comixology allows 500 MB of app storage. After that limit is reached you can DELETE COMIC TITLES! Really!???! The only option is ti delete $10 digital comics. No download to PC option, no comic locker in cloud option. Just delete.
Until an option to back-up restore my digital comic collection is set purchasing content from Cimixology is a no go.
