I hate it because I am trying to put me email and it’s on letting me I am so mad I hate it
Terribly disappointed in the update... 1/5
So much so that I will be deleting the app. I was on this app several times a week and used as way to keep up the weekly Wednesday releases. It was so easy to use and included all brands in one place!...marvel, dc, vertigo, use, etc...
Why change something that works great and make it painfully difficult to navigate...I will be going back to downloading in dividing brand apps which is such a pain...but what choice I I have now...such a disappointment...
Extensive manga library, but UI and Unlimited are lacking 3/5
For newcomers, Unlimited is the Amazon Prime style subscription service for comics, in addition to the digital comic store.
-Lack of in-app purchases is really annoying
-Also can’t see prices in the app, which makes it easy to miss out on sales
-Unlimited is not great for manga, offering only the first few volumes for only a handful of titles.
-I keep getting Error 409 when I try and borrow more than 50 Unlimited titles. So you can’t hold more than 50 issues/volumes at a time.
-Can’t add a series to wish list, only individual volumes
-Too many useless lists under the ‘smart lists’ tabs
-Search filters are lacking
-All major manga publishers in one place
EDIT: Since I posted this review, Comixology has slightly improved its manga selection for Unlimited. So I decided to give it an extra star.
Also in response to the developer, the app counts single issues and volumes (size of 10 single issues) the same way. So unless the corresponding volumes are available (and they’re often not), one ends up using 10 out of 50 Unlimited slots instead of just one.
Please fix the sorting feature. 1/5
I dislike the new sorting feature
Please bring back the old way of sorting.
It’s too hard to find things if you have a large library.
Fix the app and I’ll fix my review. Still too difficult to find what you’re looking for if you have a large library.
Why Can't We Organize Our Books???!!!!!!! 4/5
I am deeply invested in Comixology having bought thousands of books from them. The app is great (the website not as much). BUT...and it's a big one...the inability to organize our own books by creating personalized folders is outrageous. It makes it impossible to keep track of our books by story arc or any other categorization we should choose. Every time I contact them they say they will try to add this -- it's frequently requested -- but given what they've got now, it shouldn't be such a challenge to do this. IT IS SERIOUSLY FRUSTRATING FOR THE SERIOUS USER AND MAKES THE EXPERIENCE FAR LESS ENJOYABLE THAN IT SHOULD BE. Comixology: PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS!!!!
Terrible experience 1/5
I have wasted almost an hour trying to correct a minor error in entering my billing info for a free trial and it STILL does not work... Unbelievable!
Great app 5/5
Only complaint is apple wont let you buy through the app on their devices. Lame, but everything else about this works great and is convenient.
Amazon totally ruined Comixology. No longer can you add books from the app and now Amazon charges $5.99/mo. for the unlimited which is funny since they upped their Prime price as well. Done with this app.
Everything on unlimited is a 409 error code. Cancelling my subscription.
Fixes needed in latest version 2/5
A recent update took away the ability to batch delete as well as to order your books in descending order. This needs to be fixed immediately. Also the app is still unstable with large collections downloaded to the app. It’s otherwise a fantastic app. But these three flaws, two of which were added recently and intentionally, really drag down the experience.
Can’t read anything ??? 1/5
i signed up for unlimited only to find out i can’t read anything due to an error saying that i’m “unable to borrow book”... canceling my subscription and deleting what a rip off
Love this app 5/5
By Ralph durso
This is truly the best app for digital comics on the market and provides a great value for constant readers. On the other hand its not without its flaws. The app is kind of buggy from time to time with 409 status code errors which prevent you from downloading, and the feedback portion of the app is essentially broken. Other than these two issues ive been a long time satisfied user of comiXology and highly encourage and fan of comics to sign up for unlimited.
Impossible to load 2/5
i love comixology but what had gotten progressively worse over the years, and has come to a head with version NO.READ, is that the app wont load your comics when you open now. And thats the ones I have downloaded onto my ipad. What was the purpose of downloading the stupid things? God only knows what would transpire if I needed to doenload one of my books in the cloud. But they must have some reason for making their app un-usable, right?
Hard to get to comics now 1/5
Initially you tapped on the comic you want to read and it took you to the comic. Now it pulls up a screen and you have to select series find it there and then read. BTW if you have 400 of that comic your scrolling forever. Ridiculous update!
Only reason I got this 5/5
I got his because I seen naruto there and I love naruto comics
Hopefully just an oversight 4/5
The app is good. Had an issue before, but it’s been fixed.
It is not unlimited 2/5
Sorry to say I had problems with this app in the month of May. I scanned through a lot of different, books see if I like to read them. Obviously you can only borrow some mini in a month time. So it’s not unlimited. So anyone that does like I do and scans books beware when download this app. And paying for it. Because obviously they are scamming you.
It won’t let me sign in 1/5
It won’t let me sign in I’ve tried everything can someone help me if you have had this problem and know how to fix it
What happened? 2/5
I have purchased thousands of comix via your site and used this app to read them in the past.
Now the recent update got rid of the small icons for the List View by Series. Instead of viewing my collection at a glance and selecting the book I want to read I now have to go several taps deep before getting to want I want. It’s a huge pain and a waste of time.
Not buying any more comics from you guys until the issue UI issue is fixed.
Please revert 1/5
Chiming in with everyone else. New update made a perfectly usable app extremely annoying. No longer able to easily browse my collection. Split view of series and issues was simple, now it's not. No idea why you would remove the shortcuts. And seriously, needing to toggle to oldest first every second is awful.
New update is a train wreck 2/5
After figuring out how to work around the same major error that rendered my app completely useless (and which, I would point out, keeps occurring) I wanted to comment just on the problems I have with this latest update.
(1) The error I mentioned above. Basically, if I flip through screens too many times while browsing through my collection, I can’t click on anything without going back to “My Books”. Closing the app and reopening seems to fix the problem for awhile, but it’s still a huge nuisance.
(2) This update removed the alphabetical index from My Books. Yes, I can still search if I know what I want or read. But it’s a huge pain to flip through thousands of comics of you’re not sure what you want to read. The alphabetical index used to at least make skimming through your collection manageable.
(3) The search engine is unreliable, a best. Example: app When I typed in “Thunder,” it seemed to work fine. But then when I added a “b” nothing was found (not even the 100+ issues of Thunderbolts in my library)
(4) As far as I can tell, there is no way to change the default sort settings. Every time I open the issues under a given title, I get “Newest to Oldest.” Funny thing, but I like to read the older issues first. He newer ones make more sense that way. But even though I can change the setting, it goes back to the original illogical setting every time I reopen the app.
I never had any of these problems before all these “improvements,” so maybe this is a good study in the value of just leaving well-enough alone.
Latest update a step backwards 2/5
I've loved the comixology app since I started using it years ago (bought an iPad specifically so I could read digital comics on it), but the latest update is either buggy, or poorly designed.
I read comics on the new version for the first time last night. Had to adjust the settings to get My Books to display my library in alphabetical order - no big deal. Then I found the title I wanted to read, clicked on it, clicked on the "download all" link to get all 3 issues downloaded - after each issue downloaded, the app kicked me back to the My Books screen. I had to repeatedly click on the title to get back to the issues. Annoying.
After downloading the 3 issues, I started reading the first one!..... Or so I thought. Turns out they were listed "most recent first" so instead of issue 32, I ended up reading issue 34 before realizing what had happened.
Who reads issues in reverse order???? NO ONE! I have no idea why this is the default order when showing issues of a title. If this is a defect, it needs to be fixed. If this is as designed, the design needs to be re-thought.
After reading each issue, I was kicked back to My Books, rather than the title screen. The old app took me back to the title screen (screen listing all the issues I have got a title) after finishing an issue - this made sense.
One thing neither version of the app had is the ability to view one's archive - this would be nice to have.
Does not work 1/5
I tried to read a comic book would do that me only show me pictures and the title of the ortho but I didn’t really let me like read or anything you just showed pictures and all that stuff I’m really upset right now so I’m just gonna give a one star because it earns it so please don’t download this app it does not work at all thank you
Great app, needs iPhone X fix 4/5
By xx Beta Max xx
Love the app and everything it affords me, but please, loose the white swipe bar on the bottom of the comics on iPhone X. It ruins the whole experience for me.
Disaster of an Upgrade 1/5
What were you thinking with this recent change? Now I cannot delete some books from my library. Other downloaded books open on the last page and I cannot start at the beginning and others series I cannot even open to get individual issues. Who was responsible for testing this disaster of an app? They should all be fired. What w horrible user experience
Fake Free Trial 1/5
When you first sign up it says you get a week free to read whatever you want to decide if you like the app but then says you can only read the little list of free toons that I have 0 interest in
Jsyk (just so you know) you have to pay for all of them except for some that are free but most of the comics are needed to pay so I do NOT recommend this if you are trying to find good comics
Horrible update 1/5
I never write reviews. In all honesty, this is my very first app review. But I feel so strongly about this that I had to write about it. The most recent update is a complete UI disaster. They basically took something that was working well and did everything they could to mess it up. I’ll echo the statements of other recent reviews. The tiles are too large, so you end up scrolling endlessly. The sorting by letter is gone. I really don’t know what they were thinking. If I could go back one version, I would do it in a heartbeat. ComiXology, please listen to your users and bring back the old interface! I love your content and your service, and I used to love your app. Make me love it again, please!
New Update Complete UX Fail 1/5
Now 100% more difficult to navigate. Really poorly thought out update. No more jumping to titles by tapping on a letter...and the new, giant-sized thumbnails mean even more scrolling. Astoundingly stupid design.
Needs in app purchases 2/5
It’s ridiculous that you don’t have in app purchases. You have it for both dc comics and marvel which are linked to this app, but yet no in app purchases for the main app? Yes I can go to the website, but what about when you have an iTunes gift card and want to use it on Comixology for comics/manga that are not marvel or dc?
Error reading “unlimited” comics. 4/5
By ejnsks skd s
So when I was using the trial, I was reading Earth X, but after the trial ended it has not allowed me to read it; I can only add it to a wish list. I am not sure if I have been charged for a subscription, but I am highly interested in keeping my unlimited benefits.
The latest update ruined this app 1/5
The huge tiles take up too much space. The default sorting options are the exact opposite of what they should be with no option to change them globally or permanently. If I didn’t have a large investment in books I would delete this in a heartbeat. Of course they know they have many of us held captive and don’t care about our needs.
Every comic fan needs this app! 4/5
ComiXology is a revolutionary app for comic readers. The library is insane. There is some great customizations and animations for the reader that are create an awesome experience! There is also a subscription service they offer for $5.99/mo that includes a great selection of graphic novels (especially horror)! The only problem i have with this app, is that apple users can not make in-app purchases.. this needs to be added!
New book listing format is inefficient and disappointing 1/5
Used to be I had one tap and one screen for everything. Now it has been divided into two pages/tabs...Books and Series. This was a silly mistake of a design decision.
Disaster upgrade, stay away at all costs! 1/5
So I upgraded the application and to my surprise there
is no new features, the opposite, this upgrades takes away old
We no longer have the books listed alphabetically, meaning I can no longer jump for example from A to F, and since the thumbnails are now gigantic, I am now expected to scroll my 13,000 plus books for hours before I get to the book I am looking for.
The search feature doesn’t help if one doesn’t know or remember what he/she is looking for....
And the ‘unread’ and ‘in progress’ listings were already in the smart list section but they are now prominent in the my books section, why?
Twice the same feature? What about adding a real feature ?
I know many people have requested: the capacity to create
collection listings, where is the collection feature?
Also gone the series list in the left side of the screen with the issues list on the right, now it is either or... totally useless
in fact the earlier setting was extremely helpful.
Now I feel I lost control of my books.
This looks like a programmer upgrade with zero clues about the needs of a reader especially one that has a large library.
This upgrade is 100 % about good look and 0% about readers.
New Update ruins UI 3/5
The new update looks terrible, removed basic at-a-glance functionality and messed up various smart lists.
Why get rid of sorting? 3/5
The new update removes the ability to sort your books to have the oldest at the top. Why remove a feature? It just makes it more difficult when you have a large library of unread books.
While we’re at it, where’s the ability to sort by publication date, not just the date added to library (even that barely works now). Please bring back the sort feature and ,are it better, not worse!
Update not user friendly 2/5
By Celestial Phoenix
On ALL comiXology apps: comiXology, DC, Marvel and Image: the new library update is missing the A-Z quick bar on the right side. No sense in removing it: ruins user experience and I spend more time scrolling/swiping up and down needlessly when I could just jump to a book I want. Dumb update.
On the comiXology app itself: please add option to buy directly from the app. Going to website or another app is tiresome.
Monthly view 1/5
Bring back the monthly view! I can’t find it if it’s still there.
By ur boi ray
Some comics are made for kids how are you expecting a child to buy comics adults are supposed to have a credit card/ money why is this app even free I know that in the description it says you have to purchase comics but why is this a thing why can’t you just have ads
Auto slideshow in gv mode 4/5
Really good app, I do wish there was a moving slideshow feature in gv mode.
Best app to read comics 5/5
I love the guided view, it’s so addictive to read on my phone, just love the movement panel to panel. I was not a big digital comics reader but this app makes me read it. Kudos !!
How do you buy mangas 5/5
I don’t know how to buy mangas so how do you
Terrible scrolling performance with AoT manga 1/5
By Aaron Brethorst
I am seeing terrible performance when I swipe between pages in the newest tankoban issue of Attack on Titan, volume 24, on a 5th generation iPad. The device is speedy and should be perfectly capable of smooth transitions between pages, so I think there must be a perf issue in the app. Happy to help debugging either over email or by joining a TestFlight beta. I would love to see this get fixed. Thank you! Aaron at brethorsting dot com
ComiXology compromised my Amazon account 1/5
I got a notification about an email change that occurred without my authorization on amazon. It was actually linked to ComiXology and it said that I’d give them account consent last year. I’d just made a purchase with my real email earlier in the day and at NO time did I make an email change. I never knew they had consent to change my amazon email account to their own without notifying me.
This is VERY shady and disappointing. Very surprised that an app associated with Amazon would hijack an amazon account. I was actually blocked out of my original email and a new email had been added via ComiXology.
I am warning people to be careful with this app. Check your amazon account settings NOW and see if ComiXology has access to it! I had to contact amazon support and manually remove ComiXology from my amazon account settings.
Check “Manage login with Amazon” on your amazon account and unlink ComiXology ASAP.
Add to wishlist 1/5
Saw some cool free comics I wanted to try. When I opened the page, it only gave me the add to wishlist option.
Fit to width 3/5
Still no Portrait fit to width, how hard is it to flick that switch?
What the heck 1/5
I got stuck in some weird unlimited account but couldn't buy anything I actually wanted to read. The app design is so horrible and confusing
Great app with two major flaws 3/5
I love having my collection on digital — seeing the artwork in this format is awesome. My two biggest gripes, though, are:
You can custom organize your books.
Biggest flaw: You can’t make purchases directly from the app.
I am a what describes a “comic nerd.” I am obsessed with comic books, yet the only downside to this app, is that you need a amazon account. I am one who does not own a amazon account, but if I did I would still, delete this app. I like to be safe in the internet, and using a account for something that should be free. Is in my mind not something that needs to be included. However I think using a email would be better. I just don’t like this and haven’t ever gotten into the app anyway, but I have no idea what this app is really like. From what I’ve heard it’s a really great app though.
If you’re reading this I really hope you make this change it will open a world up to more viewers!
