    Fast Comic Reader's review

    Published: 2014-02-03, by Manu Galvez.

    Get comic strips of your favorite characters every day

    • Ease of use
    • One comic strip everyday (with history)
    • Needs more variety of comics
    • Comics must be downloaded as plugins

    "A daily hit of comics"

    Nodjo's Fast Comic Reader wants to make you smile everyday by pushing a new comic strip to your phone. Not entire comics, we all busy people don't have time for that. Only three or four vignettes: enough to make you smile and make others' smile too by sharing it.

    Fast Comic Reader doesn't come with preset comics. You must download them as "plugins" to the app, right from Google Play. Luann, Garfield, Dilbert... some of your favorite characters have their plugin already on Fast Comic Reader. Although a lot are missing yet, new comics are coming soon.

    Nodjo's Fast Comic Reader is set in a simple (sober) interface which, otherwise, it's really easy to use. Some design wouldn't harm anyone though. You can swipe to navigate through days and enjoy latest comic strips pushed - just in case you missed them.

    In addition, you can easily share them , see strips from random dates (some have more than 30 years!), sort them and change comic.

    In brief, a simple yet addictive app you must install if you are a comic fan.

    This is a generic, powerful and very pleasant viewer for web comics. It is fully free and has no ads.

    Read web comics seamlessly even in poor network conditions with this amazing app! It will remember which strips you've already read.

    It downloads strips in advance so that even if you lose the connection because you're commuting for example, your reading experience will not be affected.

    This app will work for any web comic in the world by installing its dedicated plugin, requesting it here if it doesn't exist or even develop it and publish it yourself so that others may use it aswell.

    In order to find these plugins, simply search for "plugin for FCR" on the Play Store, or just follow the instructions on your phone once you've installed this app. If you can't find the one you'd want, send me a message from this page, or to the twitter account FastComicReader.

    If you want to implement your own plugins, check out the open-source ones on github:

    *Why is this app asking for these permissions ?*

    -Network communication: Full network access

    This is required to download the strips from the Internet

    -Network communication: View network connections

    This is required to know whether there is an Internet connection, so that if there is none, the app can wait for one, and try to download strips only when an Internet connection becomes available

    -Storage: Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage

    This is required to save the strips on the SD card (or an other kind of "external storage"), to avoid using internal memory as much as possible, as that one is usually much smaller

    -System tools: Test access to protected storage

    This is required to be able to use the internal memory as a fallback in case no external memory is available (typically, on phones that have a slot for an SD card and that slot has been left empty)
