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.

    This app rocks, it's introduced me to so many great series and I really love the guided view narrative. I also love that I can now just sync my paypal up to my account so anything I buy from the app just goes through there automatically and I don't have to keep buying prepaid cards to pay for comics. So happy the wishlist feature was added a few months back! So convenient.

    The app keeps crashing every time I try and download a comic. Isn't that the whole point?

    Fantastic system, guided view can be awesome(depends on how the issue is coded). One request? View comics in cloud for easier retrieval.
