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.
Great, but... 3/5
I don’t mind the price, I just hate how buggy it is. The comics are awesome, but library functions incorrectly a lot lately... Sad.
Currently Reading up to date 5/5
They fixed the best feature ?
Love it, but broken now 2/5
You can't beat the value off you love Marvel comics. I guess since iOS 11, this app is really buggy. You can get a few pages in and then the app freezes. Sometimes you have to quit the app and reload the comic several times to get it to work. I’ve been a subscriber for years, and this is the worst it’s been.
Super buggy 2/5
By Charles zombie smasher
Half the time it loads 3 pages of the book then says it’s been completed... and on many of the books the guided box to box tracking skips some of the word bubbles(ultimate Spider-Man). If these 2 things were fixed it would be the best app around. Great selection and worth the price.
Good idea - poor app 3/5
This is a 5 star idea to make an app with thousands of old comics available for just $10 a month but the realisation is very poor. First of all, you cannot read these comics live, because for some reason pages download pathetically slow, so you have to download each issue to "read offline" (which surprisingly does not take much time at all) and to read it then. The covers in your library do not save and it seems like the app is downloading them every time you open it. The sorting order of the library does not save either and you have to change it every time. Finally, not all comics open: I have problems with some of the first issues, e.g. Darth Vader #1 or ObiVan and Anakin #1 - they just don't work.
If Marvel fixes these issues I will gladly rate it 5 stars.
Currently reading doesn’t sync iPad iPhone 3/5
I have the app on both my iPad and iPhone. For some reason, it doesn’t seem to sync certain things such as dev “currently reading” category. Yes, I am logged in using the same account on both devices.
Great comics, app still a work in progress 3/5
The comic selection is great. My one major complaint is how difficult it is to find different series that you want. There is an option to see more issues from the series that you were currently reading. However most often when I click on more from the series it takes me to a random mishmash of different issues. So for example, when I am reading miss marvel from 2016 and click on the option for more in the series from miss marvel 2016 it will take me to a list of seemingly random comics. It would also be nice to have an option to read an entire run from a writer as sometimes writers have a story that spans multiple titles. It can be difficult to find the issues you need to get the complete story. Otherwise, the Comic selection is great and I have really loved getting to know Marvel characters in the books as I had previously only known them from the movies.
Great app but buggy 1/5
I would love to give this app a better review but it won’t let me download any comics, it 100% fails at its function as a comic reader. Fix this problem and I’ll change my review
Good service, terrible app 3/5
By Late Night w/ Seth Meyers
Unlimited comics for a flat fee is a steal, even with a six month delay, is a steal—but the app is terrible. The main bug that bothers me is how it duplicates issues in the library. They just released an update to fix it and it still duplicates
Service itself great app buggy. 3/5
By Cbcheh hei
I haven't read a comic in about twenty years cause I have so many other hobbies and work to do. I Don't have time to go to a comic shop and buy books or desire to read them. This is like the Netflix of comics and I've already gotten 6 comics in to the Civil War event since I woke up 3 hours ago.
The comics are easy to read and a single frame will fill the iPad or iPhone screen. It makes each frame more important and cinematic than a full page of frames. I Very much enjoy the presentation and has allowed me to enjoy comics in a way that full page reading didn't.
The App itself is crazy buggy though and I've not made it through a single comic without having to close out and restart. It locks up on a frame or pauses, sometimes exits you out on its own. This is frustrating and it needs to be fixed asap.
The ap also needs a way to save or sort events and the suggested reading order of them from your library so that you can download what's next for offline reading. I fly a lot and would use the offline mode frequently.
I'd rate this lower if the concept wasn't so good as the ap really is that buggy.
Amazing App! 5/5
I’m not sure about all the bad reviews but I use this app on both my iPhone and my iPad and it works great everywhere. I’d say the only thing “bad” about this app and Marvel Unlimited is that there is no way you could ever catch up on everything you might want to read because there is so much content available!
Getting There 1/5
Update 3.0.4 App seems to load much better and front loads current page and data as needed. Now it doesn’t save my current reading list correctly. If I read issue 13 of a comic and finish into issue 14 it still shows 13 on the main page. Can’t use the app now without losing place. Shame, it was almost perfect. Btw please add double page spread view, all other readers with marvel have that.
Great service but the app always crashes 1/5
By Morrow Marcus
I really love this service but the delivery is terrible. Currently, the app has been down two weeks and it's frustrating because I'm still paying monthly.
Content: A+, User Experiences : C- 2/5
There are so many things they could add to make this app and the overall user experience better.
First, I still encounter bugs. Specifically, when reading an issue offline, sometimes duplicate issues are created. So I’ll have 3 copies of the same issue, taking up slots in my 12 slot offline library, and removing one removes them all.
Second, features like cross-device syncing, custom reading lists, or the ability to follow certain series’ would greatly improve the experience overall.
I love this service, Marvel, and even parts of App. It just seems like there are marginal improvements that could be made that would make We fans even happier.
My favorite App! 5/5
If you love comics and Marvel, this app is usually amazing. I purchased the year subscription and have access to unlimited comics and can download up to 12 at a time to read on those long flights. The team is constantly updating the app and squashing bugs! I’ve interacted with them a couple times on issues and they’re always responsive (albeit the response is slow). Still - I can’t live without this app!
Great Service, Horrendous App 2/5
Let me just start off by saying that Marvel Unlimited is a great deal if you love comics. But if you plan on doing a lot of reading on a tablet or your phone, you may be in trouble. This app has too many problems to recount: painfully slow loading sometimes, frequent crashes, the infamous "3 page bug", and a clunky UI that makes finding and exploring titles difficult. Which is truly a shame, because I know Marvel has the money and power to make this into a great app, but I've had this service for almost a year now and it hasn't changed in the slightest. Download at your own risk.
Extremely Frustrated 1/5
Have been using this app religiously for quite some time now, at least 7 months, if not longer. While I love the selection, and the ability to read what I want when I want, it is increasingly (even more so recently) hard to use.
There are many times when pages just plain won't load, and show no sign of loading, adding comics to "my library" is painstaking, and unnecessarily time consuming, and now I only load three pages of my comic at a time. (May be an error with my account, will edit).
When this app is working, I love it and use it frequently, but as the bugs get worse and worse, and the functionality shows no sign of improving, I tend closer and closer to ending my subscription.
I'm at the point of begging... please do a little housecleaning on this app. It's a great app, and I'd love to use it more if I could depend on its proper functionality.
Everytime the app updates it gets worse 1/5
By Dash Stryker
This is legitimately - I write this after much consideration - the worst app I have ever used. This includes apps I have tried, found to be terrible on one use, and deleted.
App crashes. Comic title pages that won't load, forcing me to delete the app, redownload it, sign in again, and redownload the 12 offline issues I always keep - because it would be pure folly to trust that the comics I want to read will actually load when I want them to otherwise.
The app was almost working somewhat, barely, reliably - until this last update. Now, the app freezes every 15 pages or so, forcing me to restart it - or it crashes on its own. I have just - for the umpteenth time - deleted and redownloaded the app, and now I can't even sign in!
It kills me that this is the app I have to use, for what is an INCREDIBLE and awesome service that is wonderfully priced. The Comixology app, the Marvel and DC apps, all work so beautifully. I get that Unlimited has a different purpose, but PLEASE stop updating this app and give us a completely new and *functional* one!
Good idea but... 2/5
Marvel Unlimited itself is a fantastic service but this app is just a disaster.
The GUI is sharp and search works well, but maintaining a reading list is cumbersome due to a combination of bugs in the My Library feature (titles are duplicated, wrong books are added) and some non-intuitive design choices (can't add or track a series, app does not remember where you left off).
There are some technical issues as well. Frequently the app fails to download a particular page. This happens on both WiFi and LTE. On the iPad version I frequently lose the ability to exit out of the book I'm reading or pull up the menu. There's some random hanging of the app as well which can be annoying. The solution in each case is to force-quit the app. Which wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the design choices above that make it so difficult to get back to your book.
All in all, I have had to restart the app maybe 20 times over ~three hours of reading (on both iPad and iPhone).
The content is incredible and the images are high quality. But ultimately, it's not worth the frustration and I won't be renewing after my first month ends.
Hopefully Marvel will consider hiring a dev team to build the app to a higher standard.
i'm going to have to unsubscribe 1/5
By Stephen de Jesus
i can't use the app. nothing loads. you can see comics listed, but the covers never load, let alone the comic pages. it's beyond frustrating and at this point it's just a waste of money
Great for the price 2/5
Great for the price, can't beat the unlimited amount of reading material that is available.
Comics don't load as fast or parts of it only show (min of about 1 to 3 pages at a time). When you log on to your account, you can't pick up where you left off (ex. If you read a comic on your phone then switch to finish in tablet. You will have to wait while it loads and then flip thru it until you get where you stopped) same goes if you go on the computer.
Was good before an update or two ago 3/5
By Joe hankdank
It used to be so good now every few pages the app becomes unresponsive and then crashes. In order to keep reading I have to literally close the app every four flips or so... please fix and make this app good again.
Can't even subscribe from app is this a joke 1/5
By Natasha Grayson
If only it worked 1/5
If this app would work it would be one of the best out there. Way too many bugs and times it simply doesn't work. Can't even sign in right now. Really sad that such an awesome thing doesn't work. I'd happily pay five to ten times more for it if it would just work.
Just not working... 2/5
I have used this app for years and loved it. I don't know what has happened recently but this app is now glitchier than ever. Issues are not downloading when they say they are; only a few pages load after the comic has been "downloaded". Also the app will often say that I do not have a membership. Hopefully this gets resolved quick, I just renewed my subscription and this is just not worth it.
Mixed Review 3/5
The 3rd ⭐️ is for the basic concept. A Netflix for comics. Fiscally a great deal but the app is so buggy I have to reinstall every few weeks. I'd give a higher rating otherwise. I wish DC did one of these so you had some competition.
This version is more broken than ever 1/5
This has always been a flawed, buggy app. But this version has an especially exasperating bug where it believes hat your subscription is expired after every issue you read. The only way to get it to fix itself is to delete the app and download it again, which is annoying for the login process, but also because it deletes your data for previously read issues -- data that honestly shouldn't be stored locally. No idea how this app has been this bad for this long, but it's an embarrassment.
Love it 5/5
Paid for the year subscription and so far it's been decent, the app is a bit clunky to get around but it's provides what it says it does.
Super buggy 1/5
They finally filled in a gap of Wolverine comics this week, but if I try to download any of them the app crashes. Logged out, uninstalled then reinstalled but nothing fixes the problem. But at least it's only $70/year. :(
I really need to stop updating apps... 1/5
By Orphan King
Only one item shows up in each of the categories in the Browse tab. Comics marked as read on one device does not register the same way on another. Please fix.
Fix the app! 1/5
What is the point of having this app if it doesn't work. Downloading for the last time and then ending my subscription.
Like the twilight zone 1/5
By Ad hater1234
It is ridiculous that I have to delete and reinstall the app after nearly every update because it knows I am subscribed but acts like I'm not. Why? Why can you guys not fix it? You know it is a problem so fix it!
So close 3/5
Marks comics as read, which is great. But it's device specific. A comic marked as read on my phone does not get marked as read on my tablet. Please make this feature account based and not by device.
