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!
I have to get Amazon to have this are you kidding?
I bought this because I thought it was for free. You have RUINED comics for me! 👎🏻😡😭💩👺👿
Help me 5/5
By Boom Boom n ur dead
Can someone please help me I don’t know how to buy graphic novels in comixology please help me I don’t know how please with a cherry on top
Amazing app 5/5
Helps on long car rides!
Haven't bought a single comic since they made the update 1/5
A few years ago, Comixology switched from in-app purchases to a format where I need to create an account on their website, buy a comic there, and then go back to the app. They did this to bypass the commission Apple charges on in-app purchases. In the process of their transition, i lost hundreds of comics I had purchased inside the app. I’ve never bought a comic from them again. It was such a greedy, customer-unfriendly decision.
It needs work. 3/5
By LiL Preston
I saw the ad for this on YouTube thought it’d be a great site for my enjoyment of romance Yaoi novels I downloaded the app, searched around for some favorites and I guess you guys aren’t at that level yet. Thanks for your hard work in completing the app but I’m not entirely interested. Though your app does have many DC and Marvel comics you’d probably get more people if you integrated a manga section. Or some thing like that?
Great app but should be more customizable 4/5
I have enjoyed using the Comixology app for about two years now. Although a lot of reviews appear to be about the Comixology digital comics service itself or the Comixology Unlimited subscription service, which are both great, I think the user experience accessing and interacting with Comixology content through the app could be improved. The core function of simply reading comics is slick. I’ve never had any issues and the “Guided View” option to view each panel sequentially as a separate page really improves the experience for some books.
But the inability to organize your books drives me crazy. You can only view your titles alphabetically or you can view individual books in one of a few “Smart Lists” that the app automatically generates (the same lists are also available in your online account). These show books you’re in the middle of reading, most recent purchases, most recent downloads, and unread books. Those are helpful, but once you build a large digital collection and start to take advantage of sales to purchase books you may not read for a long time, they have very little utility and it becomes very difficult to keep track of th books you want to read. Please, Comixology, add a setting for “Custom Smart Lists.” Even if the user has to login to the main app through a desktop to setup a custom list, it would be a major improvement. That would definitely make this a five star app.
How the hell do you even purchase things on this app? 1/5
By Solid kush
This app is dumb, I have no idea how to buy comics on this app. The app gives no explanation as to how. It just says to sign up for the “unlimited service”, but there is no place on the app to subscribe, don’t get me wrong reading comics on your phone is cool, but the app does poorly at letting newbies like me buy their stuff. I had to google search how to use this app, that’s really stupid.
It’s a good app but I can’t figure out where to borrow
Y’know, for being an amazon company. There is no prime perks. I mean, understandable. But I would like something for prime. Like a free comic or something.
Buy comics in the app 3/5
I LOVE comixology, but wish you could buy comics through the app like you can in the android version.
Trouble purchasing certain books 2/5
I can get whatever I want on the website. The app for some reason won’t let me purchase books. Just says add to wish list. Yet as soon as I go online I can buy them. Why can’t you just buy them on the app? Need to fix this issue.
Not what you expect 1/5
It’s so confusing and you can’t read comics
Great app 5/5
This is an amazing app for people who are beginning to read comic books, and if I was going to recommend a series for beginners I would recommend the marvel masterworks, most of the first ones are with unlimited, speaking of unlimited I would totally recommend it, it gives you so much comics and graphic novels to choose from. The only thing I don’t like about the app which isn’t there fault is that all the DC Comics are only available if you purchase them. But anyways this is an awesome app and I 100% recommend it
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
By siji afolayan
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!!!
