Comics by ComiXology is a good-looking comics-reader which includes a great catalog

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.

    I'm running android 4.3 on my galaxy note 2 and the friggin download gets stuck at 8%. WTH.. I paid for these comics fair and square. I guess it's better to pirate these things. Update - Can use it properly on my Z1 :)

    I've purchased three books so far and every one looks fantastic - especially in that panel-by-panel guided view. My wishlist is loaded with classics and recommendations from friends. Two features I hope get added: (1) I couldn't find a way to save downloaded books to my SD card, and (2) I wish I could follow series or authors and receive notifications when new books are released.

    pros good comics, mostly at reasonable prices. fairly effective control methods. cons takes up space on the device even if it has been moved to SD card. it remains a "phantom" memory hog. Often reporting less then 10Mb but it can be truly massive if you have built up a collection here does not use Google wallet it requires payment information to be on other servers for no apparent reason. addi
