Comic Reader For Ipad
The iPad is a great device for comic book reading. It is a great multimedia device that serves loads of functions. Apple has done it’s best and crammed in there hundreds of apps and feats making it just about as complex as a laptop. Among the favorites, we can find the comic book reading functionality. Despite the fact that the 9.7 inch screen may not be as big as the normal comic book page, which measures about 12.2 inch, but the zooming capability makes it worth while since you cannot zoom the page, but you surely can in the iPad.
Comics and Marvel are the two apps that apparently have the comic book reading segment cornered. These are both, specially designed for the iPad, both of them are gorgeous and very cool to use, but the problem is that, much like other iPad apps, they come restricted. You need to download the comic books from their websites alone. But if you have a couple of scans of your own, neither Comics nor Marvel will allow you to read them. Seeing that, we’ve tried to help the readers a bit and spent a little time online testing some of the best alternatives. Some of these apps work better than others, but we were heading for a couple that have CBR, CBZ, PDF and other scan formats. None of them might be the real deal but we’ve definitely got a couple of strong contenders.
ComicsZeal4 seems to be the best one until now. We’ve judged by features alone and by the fact that it’s a silent app that stays out of your way when you are reading. But still, like I’ve said, there are a couple of hiccups with it as well. Until now there was a ComicZeal for iPhone only and it needed another program to transfer the files from one iPhone to another. Now because of the existence of iTunes, you can easily transfer files from one device to another without having any sort of problems.
On of the nuisance of this app is the fact that you need to drag the page a long, long way until it finally decides to turn. Indeed it was improved in later updates but it still has a “shaky” frame when the page turns. Compared to the usual smoothness of Apple animations, you will see that as scratch on chock board.
