    This is, by a significant margin, the best xkcd browser on the app store. The UI is perfectly serviceable without being too flashy, navigation is good, as are the search function and offline mode, for both the comics and what-if articles. The developer is also receptive to user input. I wrote an earlier review, which praised the app, and offered some suggestions as well. It may have been coinciden

    I've tried most of the xkcd viewers, and this is by far the best.

    Everything works well and is done with minimal permissions. Exactly what want in an app like this.

    My only complaint is that formulas are presented as code in What If articles. Adding saving lists and adding comments to titles would be very cool to sort favourites and add some information. Some What Ifs cover much more than would be obvious from the original title.

    Great humor, always enjoy a good app over having to go through the internet browser. Would like to be able to exit app via button instead of backing through all the comics I read. Also a bookmark would be nice, so to pick up where we leave off if I don't return for a while.

    Works flawlessy and has a lot of handy features packed - like a convenient integration with explain xkcd - and a nice way for reading captions. Only (minor) hiccup: the GUI is a bit on the ugly side, it could be better. A solid 4 stars.
