Confusion with Amazon? 1/5
This app has serious potential right now. It does not capitalize on it. With the Amazon acquisition of Comixology some streamlining and improvements definitely need to be made.
Currently you are not notified when using the app for the first time that you are signing up for a subscription. This is fraud.
Many comics cannot be read with the unlimited subscription and - as far as I can tell - also cannot be purchased in app.
Hopefully as time goes on improvements are made by amazon on this system. For now I will be trying to find out how to cancel my subscription that I did not want to sign up for.... THANKS!
Dow load stories 2/5
How d9 to download the comics on the app
When I go to new to comiXology unlimited, and I click see all the app crashes. But other than that one thing I haven’t had anything else wrong with the app.
This app is LIT 5/5
This app is amazing finally I can read some Manga cause I’m other apps it doesn’t have what I’m looking for
You cannot buy books in the app.
By air fire
Brilliant App. However since the last update, it crashes when I trying to look at the new unlimited section. Very frustrating.
Buggy and you cant even subscribe via app 1/5
Your submit button is hidden by the keyboard when you go to send feedback. Brilliant. Also when you click more info for subscribing there is No info!
I hate this 1/5

So EXPERIENCED 😱😱
Reader is fine. Store is Diluted and Hard to Use 2/5
It is becoming harder and harder to find the current week’s release from Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, etc. This morning the “new” tab had over 20 pages of manga in the middle of the new releases. The English language filter did not work. Please fix the language filter or create separate tabs so that you’re customers can separate out manga from the Marvel, Dark Horse, US comics.
No in app purchases 1/5
In the android app I can purchase comic books directly in the app but I have to go to the web browser on my iPad in order to purchase a comic book. Makes the app only good for reading used to be really good for exploring and finding new comic books. Guess I’ll use my android phone for buying and my iPad for reading, what a pain.
Great, but a few issues are truly frustrating 3/5
I’m a digital hoarder so this is probably an issue that most people don’t experience. I’ve noticed as I fill the app up with more and more comics (800+ graphic novels on the latest iPad with 512gb space), there is considerable lag and slowdown. I have a few iPads so I tried downloading and multitasking in the app while the downloads are happening and saw that a clean slate iPad with no ComiXology comics downloaded runs a lot faster in the app. Everything from reading while a download is happening to switching between tabs works flawlessly... That is until you apparently download too many comics.
The issue seems to be that the app really isn’t able to download so many comics at once or can handle the load of 100’s of gigs of comics in the app. Considering half the reason I buy digital comics is to have my collection at my fingertips as much as possible and they are locked to the ComiXology (or kindle) ecosystem this is a problem if I’m being punished for having a huge amount downloaded. Also it only ever downloads one comic at a time and if I switch to another app outside of ComiXology (say safari or something else) the comics rarely load in the background forcing me to stay in the app. Then upon re-entry there’s usually significant lag.
I do love this app. It’s gotten so much better over the years. I realize I may be an extreme minority, but considering that I’ve spent thousands of dollars into this ecosystem, I’d like to think my voice will be heard. Will be happy to revise my score upon any positive updates.
Some fixes in last version but app still begins to buckle when large amount of comics are in use (440 downloaded and app still has freezing issues). When I trim down amount locally stored it’s a far improved experience, but still stinks to have to restrict how much I carry around. Getting there!
HD comics option not working. 3/5
App is great. However I can’t disable the HD comics option on iPhone. I’m able to on iPad. On iPhone, it just snaps back to enabled.
No longer talks to Kindle 4/5
Dec. 11th, 2017 update--
Ok, developers, I've finally detected a pattern of which comics were not importing from Kindle: those with 2017 publication dates! Books published in 2016 & before all imported.
Hope this helps.
**Newst update... this is what happened in the past 5 days (imported/purchased):
1st day: 2/2
So, the app is not consistent, but at least it's importing some now. Please note that I have not included the Mills & Boons comics because I know those never imported at all since the beginning.
Update: Thank you, developer, for sending me a response, but I'd rather not give out my personal information which is required for sending an email to Support. I do have a new situation to report, though: I purchase Hq comics on Amazon almost on a daily basis and none imported into ComiXology since the last update. However, the batch of 10 books I'd bought yesterday suddenly showed up! I'll wait a few days to see if my subsequent purchases will resume importing. If the problem is resolved, I'll return to revise my rating.
Original review: When I first got this app, it worked seamlessly with Kindle, importing all the Harlequin comics I'd purchased on Amazon (in the "From Kindle" section). That was kinda neat and made it easier to distinguish between comics bought on Amazon and those from ComiXology.
However, after a couple of updates...not so much anymore; the imports started getting sporadic and only 2 out of 5 comics show up.
Since the last update, the imports stopped altogether and with ComiXology no longer offering sales on Harlequin titles, this app has just about become obsolete for me. I guess it's back to Kindle!
The bar by which all other comics apps are measured. 5/5
By Princess ladybug 66722495❤️🐞
I find it impossible to download a book plz help
I have to buy ? 1/5
By bladez X sub
I want to read One piece and I have to buy IT!!!!
Won't let me turn the page! 3/5
I love the collection of comics but wow the app is glitchy. Some days it works and some days it won't let me turn the page of my comic. Please fix this issue
A good comic reader 5/5
Review updated: this is a solid comic reader.
Quantity and Quality 5/5
I love comics. They’re one of my fave things in life, and this app enables me to have SO many and in such a great way, that I don’t have to worry about space for them and stuff like that. Comixology has sales ALL the time, really good ones too (ex. 80% off, buy one/get one free, etc). I mean, they are CONSTANT, and if you miss one for your fave comic? No worries! It’ll probably have another sale for that same comic in a few weeks or so. The app is also set up in such a way that after you read a comic, you can remove its download from your device to save room, but it’ll still be listed along with all the others so you can see all the issues you have of a certain arc. I experience almost NO crashes with this app and no updates have given me any trouble. I even have comixology‘s Unlimited subscription and it’s great for “borrowing” new comics and exploring them. The cinematic view is also a favored feature of mine because it really helps the pace of the comic and becoming immersed in it without your eyes jumping around the page. I’d like it perhaps if we could buy comics in the app, but I’m not too troubled you can’t, it’s not that big of a deal. I’d also like it if we could get deals like, hey you bought this many comics, here’s a free one or here’s a discount on one comic of your choosing, or even a points reward system for how many purchases you make. Also, I LOVE that it’s so integrated with Marvel Unlimited, very smooth and I’ve had no trouble moving between the two apps. Here’s to hoping DC gets its own version of Marvel Unlimited! Lol
Could be so much better 2/5
You can't make purchases from the app. You can't see prices of the comic books from the app. You have to go on their site for all that, including seeing what sales they have. It could have such better function...it's basically just a comic reader/storage app. Well, half of an app.
A quick taste 4/5
I pay for the subscription and until recently thought that most of the books would be available to me. I was wrong, only a few select books are available to me from there I’m assuming I’ll have to buy the books to continue my reading. Slightly worth it if you’re not an avid comic book reader such as myself.
Ugh. What if ur a kid and u wanna read comics. I don't have Amazon I am a kid. I hate it I am not as loud to have amazon so how am I supposed to know how the app is. It's so annoying
Missing iPhone X support 4/5
By Felippe Nardi
I will really appreciate reading comics full screen on iPhone X.
What happened? 2/5
I miss the old app where I could buy books within the app, and now I have to switch back and forth with the app and website. Also I signed up for ComiXology unlimited & that I had to google to find where to sign up. In the app there is a icon to click, but it doesn’t take me anywhere I can sign up, just another sign that says “sign up for comiXology unlimited.” Which is crazy, why doesn’t it take me directly there?
My only wish 4/5
I love this app! My only wish is that you could buy through the app!
For new people why is it difficult 4/5
By Mr I/\/tertai/\/eR
I'm not new to comiXology , but I re-downloaded and gave it a try. Why the hell is it so hard to Register for Unlimited?? There is no link to register easier. How the hell do you guys even make money if your customers are lost?!
This app sucked 1/5
This is not the best app they need a better way of signing in and you have to by almost every thing and if you are a kid and have no amazon account you can't get it
Update the app for iOS 11! 2/5
The only reason I’m giving this a 2 rating is that they never bothered to update this app for iOS 11, so I can’t read anything on my phone anymore. I mainly used it on my phone, and now I can’t... otherwise I loved it! It was so nice to have everything at my fingertips from manga to superhero comics to independent comics and everything in between... it would just be nice to read them on my phone, that’s all.
Big flaw 4/5
For the life of me, I don’t get why you can’t buy comics in app or at least be taken to the site to buy them. I liked comiXology better before it was bought by amazon...
This App was very good when I heard about it but it wouldn’t let me put down the right email and password in. I know everybody’s thinking that I just probably didn’t put the right email and password but I did like five times!😤
So Good 5/5
One of my favorite apps. The Guided View feature is great on my phone. The iPad app also works wonderfully.
Great and all 3/5
By flor clark
It's great and all but I don't really have an Amazon looking forward to it but not so much right now...
What better way to find great comics! You get a taste of what your looking for, before having to buy them! Awesome!!!
Spotty at best 3/5
Use to be pretty good. Recently has been full of drops and bugs. Tried to redownload and now can't even sign in. It's sad to see how far they have fallen.
Update: They have got a hold of me about the issues I've had. Though I gave my phone to my friend who works on computers and phones for a living. He was able to get me signed in. Hopefully I stay signed in now.
Can't buy anything 1/5
Your booty app won't let me purchase anything. Sorry for trying to give you money.
Wish there was a buying option on the app android has it so why doesn’t apple?
Good Source. 5/5
By Thomas Dems
There are Soooo many Conan comics, as a Conan the Barbarian fan, I love it. And The Witcher comics are also a good read. Love this app!
Good way to read comics on my phone.
Not a good start 1/5
Not a good start app won't download & open
Why can't we just read them without signing in?! 2/5
By Don't touch my phone
Like they're books like we don't have to sign in for a BOOK
Great Selection! 5/5
Couldn't be happier with my ComiXology Unlimited subscription. It's a great way to read tons of my favorite comics for a low, flat rate. It also provides an opportunity to discover and enjoy comics I may never have learned about otherwise.
What do want 4/5
By Massive 00 Fan
It's a great app to purchase and read comics on end of story
Great app for comics 5/5
Hopefully Amazon and Apple will bury the hatchet and make buying via app happen but until then this is a great reader and even better if you have Unlimited since you can select your comics and read directly from the app.
Updated comic format 4/5
The reason, the ONLY reason, that I didn't give this a 5-star review is a small glitch between the comixology website and the comixology app. If I purchase a title on the website, it may not immediately show up in my SmartList on the app, even if I hit "download to app." I can use the app to search for the title and download that way easily, it's just an extra step. But I've adapted 😊
This is a great place to find those missing issues in your otherwise "complete run", read titles you normally wouldn't, and even explore self-published or independent writers. COMIXOLOGY UNLIMITED is amazing (and super CHEAP) so utilize it before feeling like you have to make mass purchases.
This is the future of comics, people!
Love my comics. 5/5
Great app. I was buying comic books until I heard about ComiXology. I have the unlimited, which is great to read up on new comics. I highly recommend this app and service.
Im a fan 5/5
Of this app
Great app 5/5
ComiXology works smoothly, consistently, and clearly. I enjoy the sales and tend to buy more than I can chew. The library module could use a bit more sorting criteria, but the smart lists are great.
Great App 5/5
By Horrible again
This is amazing! Especially the Unlimited package! So many free comics! Still love to have and hold actual comics, but I read so much more than before! Completely worth upgrading!
Guided view is Awesome 5/5
At first I was skeptical reading a comic book on a tablet, or phone. But the ComiXology app with guided view makes it an awesome experience. You really can enjoy the visuals and follow the story. Makes for an awesome comic reading experience.
