    Claims to support samba but doesn't really. It tries to download ALL the comics from network storage making it pointless.

    Lately though It's just not working right. It is now hard to add new books and it randomly closes every other page or so. I also HATE that there is no panel to panel viewing style like o.e of the other viewers has. I hope they get these issues solved quickly. On another phone I had the donated version and if they get this fixed with the next update I would gladly pay again.

    Does not work on Galaxy5. Reply - It just gives me a blank (black) page with only the page number at the bottom. I tried three different .cbz files (please note, this worked fine with the one pdf file I tried, but I got the program for reading .cbz files) and none of them worked. Installed it on my nexus 7 (gen 1) and it works fine (chaging score based on that). Second edit: all pages - actuall
