    O app é incrível mas depois dessa última atualização o app não abre comics e fica fechando sozinho.

    App does not work well at all. Doesnt find your comic files but makes you find them and sometimes doesn't even show them at all. When trying to flip a page sometimes it will flip to the same page your on a dozen times or so, fix for this is exit the app, reload it, find the comic, find the page and hope it doesn't happen again. It oftentimes will. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.
