    refresh needs some tweaking. maybe also add the ability to pick your own cover for folders and storage issues?

    I don't read a CBR usually, so when a friend gave me 2 files I needed to find a reader for them. I tested this app and it does exactly what I need it to do - for free, no adds, and fast.

    Took a minute to figure out the ins and outs of this app but now that I have, this app is everything I wanted and more. Can't do panel by panel but I never expected it to.
