There are coming up lots of comics reader for mobile devices, although they seem just a few if we compare them with news or e-books readers. Actually, finding a really good comics reader has become a tough task. However, ComiXology has done its best to launch a comic reader that surpasses most of the others.
It's set in a good-looking HOLO layout. It looks like Google Play with a featured highlighted comics at the top and a a vertical swiping list of other suggestions (by category). You can navigate from “featured” tab to “Just added” (latest) or “Popular” (best rated/most downloaded). You can also see your own library or visit the comic store. Most of the comics are paid although you can find some free too. The only catch: you need to create an account for getting access to the store, otherwise you won't be able to purchase/download comics. Flip pages by swiping, pinch for zooming and set other reading preferences from settings.
In a few words, an app which comics lovers cannot miss.
Purchases made here can be read on the web, too, at www.comixology.com.
The only comic reader and store with Guided View Technology, which Wired.com says "solves the problem of reading comics on the small screen."

both DC & MARVEL, how cool is that? even independent comicbooks
Couldn't purchase anything inside the app. Saying that the billing service is unavailable. That's too bad.
I hope it works well if not I'm deleting the app ;-)
Don't have the Guided View option on my app. Where's it gone?
Irritating to use and a clumsy crap UI
I've installed this app on my phone and my tablet. I bought four issues through the Web site this evening and they all appear in my library on-line. However only one issue has found its way to my tablet, and none have made it to my phone. "Restore Purchas
