Unable to read more than 3 pages 1/5
I’m an annual subscriber to Marvel Unlimited however I’m unable to read comics or download to read offline. Every comic I try to read only gives me a 3 page preview. When I try to download for offline reading I get a pop up that reads ‘Opps! Something went wrong. Please try again later.’
Does not work 1/5
When I try to read a comic, it tells me I’m offline. I’m not offline. It tells me to connect to WiFi. I am on WiFi.
My connection is good enough to stream videos but not read comics? C’mon
App is super buggy 1/5
By Dax Janiels
Love being able to read Marvel comics on my devices. The app has had a lot of issues in the two years I've been a subscriber though, and I'm unable to actually load the app. Problems began with my iPad and now I'm deleting it from my iPhone. Support doesn't answer emails and I'm planning to place a formal complaint. Search the name of the app and the term bugs and you'll see this is a regular issue. It's a shame, when it works it is great.
By Much relaxe
Please update this app, I would totally give it a 5 star review if there weren't so many bugs and broken links. My comics don't come up in my recent or register as read in my library 👎🏻
I really wanted to learn more about The Marvel Universe. And this app shows me every comic I could imagine. I Love It.
iPhone X Support 2/5
Still no iPhone X support ☹️
Best deal in comics 5/5
This app is the best thing going in comics. If you have any interest in Marvel comics you need to try this out.
A year subscription only cost around $6 a month.
I've been jumping around reading different arcs and writers and I've never had a hard time finding an issue.
As long as you don't mind being a little behind the new stuff, you can't go wrong. There is plenty of material to read while you're waiting for the new issues to release.
I'm a casual comics reader and I can't justify buying a lot of comics that I'll only read once.
This app allows me to read as many Marvel comics as I want and I love it for that.
Ive had very few issues over the past 6 months. So it looks like they’ve got most of the bugs worked out.
This app does NOT work. Period. For months I’ve only been able to load 3 pages. Can’t edit my library. Can’t search for other issues in a series.... but the billing works. I see them taking money every month.... so I guess they’ve got THEIR priorities in place.
Save your money!
Crashes and won’t open 1/5
This app has always been slow and buggy, but now it doesn’t work at all. Not sure how they’ve managed to make this app even worse than normal. Restarted iPad. Force quit app. Even deleted and reinstalled and it just hangs and won’t even load the main screen. How do we get our money back? Ugh.
So many bugs 2/5
When it works it’s great but 80% of the time it’s glitching, only showing you three pages and not letting you even mark comics as read. I’m considering ending my subscription since Marvel Unlimited can’t even handle the basic tasks it promises.
Add iPhone X support! 3/5
Would love to read comics utilizing the full screen.
Unreliable and not optimized 1/5
Every year I travel with Marvel Unlimited and every year its disappointing. I can download my favorite 12 comics but after that, if I want to download new titles while on the go, it’s unreliable at best and inoperable at worst.
My current wonky fix, that doesn’t always work, is to set a title to download, open it, watch every page load, and then it’s downloaded. Hope I didn’t see a panel that spoilers me!
The app should allow at least twice the downloadable titles because it’s so unreliable while traveling. Three years running and it’s still this way.
Marvel should be ashamed! 1/5
By Carped Out
This is a giant middle-finger to fans, readers, decent people.
Endless crashes, failures 1/5
2017-12-17: As others have noted, the latest update breaks the Currently Reading list so that it ignores/forgets everything new I read.
Another “update,” another broken basic feature. Either Marvel’s developers are incompetent, or in some way Marvel prevents them from doing competent work.
- - -
2017-11-21: Yesterday’s update erased all my recently-read comics.
- - -
2017-09-02: Every update breaks the app worse than before. Now it lags: when reading a comic, I swipe to advance, and it may respond to the swipe 20-30 seconds later…or freeze and crash. Who develops these disastrous "updates"?
- - -
REVISED: I have to delete the app, w/ all my data, & re-install _weekly_…or else it only shows first three pages of any comic! And others report same here & on Twitter.
This app is a nightmare for users and an embarrassment.
- - -
Obviously, the content is amazing. Now, about the app:
It will crash the first 2-4 times I launch, & some other times while using it. Books will fail to load the first few times I try to load them. Sometimes this crashes the app, sometimes not.
No other apps on my iPhone ever crash, ever fail. This app fails more than it works.
When it works: amazing content. Obviously.
Marvel Limited 1/5
I have been a comic fan since I was a kid, and always loved the “big 2” publishers; Marvel and DC. My faith in Marvel waned over the past several years, but I held true that things would get better. This Marvel app has officially destroyed my hopes in it. I pay every month to be able to read Marvel comics and do you know what I can’t do? Read Marvel comics. No matter what comic, no matter what issue, it gives a 3 page preview. I tried downloading the issues for offline reading, I tried deleting and re-downloading this “Unlimited” Marvel catalogue, and I even tried contacting customer support. I have gotten nowhere, and I use the company name (Marvel) as many times as I can in this brief review to remind you of exactly what publisher you’re reading and how they enjoy treating their readers. End of the day, all this Marvel app does in terms of unlimited is leave me with Unlimited Disappointment. Stick with Comixology or just hitting up your Local Comic Shop. You’ll end up saving money by not flushing it into this broken glorified picture gallery and getting a better time with either choices. So once more, thanks Marvel, for leaving such a sour taste in my mouth, and reminding me that the only good content you produce for fans now are summer blockbusters.
Buggy as a cheap motel 2/5
Right now I’m dealing with my Currently Reading list losing place in a series or a title not showing up in it at all. For $10/mo we deserve a better app.
Spotty memory of what’s been read 3/5
Very cumbersome trying to find the next in a series when it keeps saying the last read is actually 5 previous, etc. I only use one device for this so it’s not out of sync, just obnoxiously forgetful. Also several wide panels in smart panel mode don’t bother to zoom on the text so on a larger phone I still have to squint and hold the phone up to my face to make it out.
iPhone X Compatibility 1/5
This app is sorely in need of a facelift for the iPhone X. Review will be updated with next iteration of software.
Can't login 1/5
The app won't let me login with my google account. Keeps saying oops something went wrong please try again later. I just have to read my comics thru the web browser instead.
so!!! many!!! issues!!! 2/5
Hi, my family and i love marvel so we signed up for this service, but there’s one problem that’s just gotten worse: the app doesnt work!! in the past, some comics have loaded slowly, then there was an issue where the app would just keep loading without actually loading anything until you restarted the app, now i keep getting locked out of my account with no explanation or warning! this is a great service and it would be a great app, if i could use it!!
Offline reading? 2/5
While I love the content and the ability to read “UNLIMITED” Marvel comics, this apps only problem is the issue with downloading for offline reading. WHAT THE HECK! If you click on a comic to read offline nine times out of ten it will get stuck in limbo, not able to download. If this issue was corrected the app would be perfect.
5 Star app....most of the time 1/5
I love this app when it’s working, but every time they do an update they seem to introduce new bugs and they don’t fix them very quickly. The latest update has caused the currently reading feature not to work. It won’t save your progress unless you exit to the home screen after reading. If you just close the app it will start you back at the first page where you began your last reading session.
I really need to stop updating apps... 1/5
By Orphan King
Clicking on “More in (whatever comic series I’m reading)” does not take me to the series page. Instead I’m taken to a list of other works the writer has done..... 😑
Great Value But Buggy 3/5
Love having the library of MU available, but I am shocked at how poorly it keeps track of what I have read. Since the update, the "Currently Reading" section is consistently several issues behind where I actually am. Apart from this, I would also expect to be able to easily view all the issues I have ever read through the app, and seamlessly resume any individual series. As it stands I have to use a spreadsheet to track it. Build this in and build it right, and this is hands down a five star app.
Not really worth using on iPhone X 2/5
Doesn’t use full screen on iPhone X
Currently Reading List is Broken 2/5
Great idea to sync the currently reading list across devices! Unfortunately that fix seems broken. It no longer even updates on the device I’m reading on, which is annoying when I’m trying to figure out which book I read last. Please fix it.
Great idea.....poor execution..... 1/5
I have been a subscriber since 2014. I love reading comics and Marvel has something no one else does here. Recently I got an iPad so I now read on two devices being my iPhone and iPad. They would not sync. I do 80% of my reading on my iPad. It does fine keeping my spot and reading history. My iPhone however shows my entire library that I have created but shows I have not read a single book. I contacted support and they gave me a very generic response to delete the apps and reinstall. I did this and now the iPad nor the iPhone show I have read anything even though they still show my entire library of 506 books. In reality I have read around 200-300 books at this point. I emailed Marvel again to get another very generic response that my case would be turned over to tech support and to contact them in the future if I had questions......Does that mean your done with me or will you be contacting me??? Horrible support. Basically my two emails seemed as though they were written by robots and I feel fairly sure they are finished with the last response. I also notice large random gaps in older comic lines. What’s the point in having a comic from the mid 90s and give us issues 1-14, then skip about 20 issues and pick back up somewhere around issue 35. Makes no sense. Please fill the gaps on older series.
Can’t remove comics on Currently Reading section. Why are there missing comics on old story lines? Seems silly to start one.... and then have to skip 40 comics. App runs slow and not smooth. But other than it’s great resource to read some dope comics. Hopefully gets better quick and updates need to happen more frequently
So Buggy 1/5
It seems every time this app gets updated a new bug appears. Currently unable to clear my offline comics. Glad I got a month for free because I wouldn't pay for this.
Getting better all the time 5/5
While I have been a fan of marvel (for a long time), and, of course, a loyal and happy subscriber to Unlimited, I have found some faults with the app. Thankfully, and with very little input from me, it seems about every bad quirk, fault and/or buggy part of the app is dwindling down with every update. Thank you Marvel, both for making this service great, and always continuing to improve it. I haven’t used the website version in awhile (which could use the same treatment if it hasn’t already), but, baring this in mind, I’m now hopeful in thinking of doing so again in the future.
Crash crash crash 5/5
I love this app. I read all the reviews and I disagree with the negative ones. There are a few issues every once in a while but for only $9.99 a month for thousands of comics, this awesome. No other comic book company is offering anything close to this. Comixology does a subscription now too but you don’t get any of the main titles to read. This is still hands down the best deal for comic book reading. I’ve read at least 1,000 books with this app for only $9.99 a month. I highly recommend it.
Amazing but slow 4/5
It is amazing, i can have all the marvel comics on my pocket just for 10 dollars every month and thats amazing first because I didn’t have a comic shop near and specially bullying comics is too expensive. The only bad think of this app is that is sooo slow and take a lot to load a comic and sometimes ir never finish loading, also it close and never load pr some pages didn’t load and you have to restart de app. Pls marvel if you fix that, this app will be perfect, 100% recommended if you love comics and can’t buy fiscally
By Battle Glove
You can now sync your current reading list across all devices!!! This is awesome 👏. Thank you for doing this. I’ve been a subscriber for years and having been waiting forever for this. They say beggars can’t be choosers....but if we could ever get a pull list or some kind of notification when an issue is released (for a series we follow), I’d know that the one above all truly exists.
If I had a dime for every freakin' time I had to reset my f-ing password, I could easily afford the subscription for free. Seems like at least once a month the app just decides to switch to preview mode (where I can only read the first three pages of any comic book, even though it CLEARLY says I have a paid subscription). So then, the only solution is to reset my password. I've done this so many GD times I've lost count.
GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, Marvel. This is pathetic.
iPad Pro 12.9?? 4/5
Can we get full resolution support? Otherwise, awesome app!
So Many Comics!! 5/5
I am absolutely enjoying this subscription service and app. I got this at first for the few series that I read, but as I was waiting for the new issues to come out for those, I found so many other series on this app that I’m loving! Very good price for the subscription and I have never regretted the purchase!
I can’t log in! 1/5
Every time I try to log in with Facebook the app crashes so I’m unable to log in at all. I’m now paying for a service I can’t use. This won’t last if the app isn’t fixed.
Good comics, horrible customer service, buggy app 2/5
I’ve had the app for a year. Love the great selection but there have been titles that won’t load no matter how long I wait for them. I’ve written customer service multiple times through the app and my personal email and have never received a response. Most recently, I bought a renewed subscription and now the app is telling me I’m no longer a subscriber! For $99.99/year you’d think they’d be a little quicker to fix their issues or at least respond to my query. I’m a huge Marvel fan and I really love the comics and if they can fix the issues I’ll stay but the flaws are piling up and I simply won’t tolerate paying this much for an app/service that is so buggy or apathetic.
Much improved! Great app! 4/5
This app had a terrible bug that got worse and worse. Marvel finally squashed it. Thank you! This is a terrific app. It occasionally is a little slow, but otherwise it's an excellent interface. I love having a standing library, and the app manages this quite nicely.
Problems with switching phones 3/5
By Antonio Bandalero
I just switched phones and it shows every comic I have read as unread when I filter my selections. This makes finding where I left off a pain. Besides that the app works great. Please fix this issue so people won’t have the same problem when switching devices.
Newest update was a game breaker for me 3/5
By Skyway Traffic
Hey guys. I think you’re great and the app is great but the latest update claiming to squash a bug where things weren’t showing up in currently reading when they were supposed to be, actually created that bug for me when I never experienced it before!! It’s really reallyyyyyyy frustrating. Will totally re-up my score once it’s fixed. Just this is a huge one.
The app freeze to much 1/5
When I am on wifi it freezes all the time. Can not read a comic book without closing and opening the app at least 5 times or more. The only way to read comics is to download first but you only get 12 to download, I hope they increase this. Also it takes too long for the comics to long if you don't download them first. The app has a lot of issues hope they fix some of them soon or else this will be my last month. Thank you.
Offering is good, app constantly freezes 2/5
To the point that if I sit down to readI usually can’t get through half a comic without a freeze.
Have tried restarting the a which gets me through a few ore pages.
Delete and reinstalled and helps a little. Figure it out guys, other apps don’t freeze this frequently
UPDATE 6 months plus later, new iPad, still same freezing, crashing issues
Love the service, but the app is buggy 2/5
Love Marvel Unlimited, but this app is always buggy. I’m glad they fixed the duplicate issue, but now my iPad app doesn’t correctly sync if comics are read or not with the server. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app (which you will have to do at some point) makes it think all comics in your library are unread.
Fortunately, the app on my Android phone does not have this problem and I use that to keep track of what’s read in my library. Unacceptable for a paid service.
Redownload the app if you’re only getting 3 pages 3/5
Redownload the app if you’re only getting 3 pages
Too many bugs 1/5
There isn’t a day that goes by where I have no issues with this app. It’s always freezing or randomly crashing, not loading comics that I’ve downloaded, etc. I love the idea and app when it works, but the UX makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. It’s been this year for about 2 years that I’ve been using it.
App not worthy of Marvel 2/5
The app is slow and crashes frequently. Selection is good, but behind and I would think that it could be more up to date with the issues.
Slow As A Turtle 3/5
This is such a great idea, and I love using it (when it works). The value is quit good, but the comics often fail to load or do so very slowly. I don’t get it. They’re just static images. Please speed things up. Tonight the app isn’t even working at all. I look forward to reading in bed, but now it’s completely broke. I really hope the devs address the poor performance. If they do, I’d be happy to change my review.
Paid for year. Can't access 1/5
For several months I have not been able to log in to the Marvel Unlimited App.
It doesn't accept my password. I follow link to change it. I successfully change it. I go to log in again. I get ANOTHER WRONG PASSWORD ERROR!!!!
Please. PLEASE. PLEASE! Let me log into the App.
Otherwise this is a big waste of time and money.
Still has a lot of bugs.
