Great app 4/5
1. Reasonably priced
2. downloadable purchases (I really love this as it means I can read when wi-fi isn’t available)
3. Official source
4. App runs great, haven’t had it crash in ages since it’s early days before it was fine tuned.
5. Devs actively read reviews and comments to improve their product
1. While a person’s library can be filter for a given title, there isn’t an option to hide books in the library that are not currently downloaded.
2. Free previews are nice, and while one chapter is good enough to judge the artwork, it’s not enough to determine whether the writing and story will be enjoyable.
3. While I understand that publishers tend to specialized in certain genres and demographics, it would be nice to see a wider variety available.
No Shonen Jump on iOS 11? 1/5
When I got my new iPhone, there’s no download link for the new issue of Jump, only a Subscribe button. I buy my issues week by week and don’t want to subscribe.
Presentation could use some work 4/5
By Majin Tenshi
Content is good, but the presentation could use some work.
The UI is jumpy/jittery.
The downloaded manga section is cluttered with free preview offers.
You have to download a whole Jump issue, even if you only want to read a single chapter out of it.
It’d be nice if there was some way to see when the next Jump issue would be out, even if the cover art isn’t available.
If you’re thinking about subscribing to Jump, there’s no way to see what titles are coming out in it.
Didnt wanna purchase something and no refund? 1/5
Hello i was wondering if i can get a refund i Accidently clicked on a book and it made me pay for it instantly i forgot that i added my debit account is there any way i can please get a refund thank you.
Amazing update 5/5
I’ve been a subscriber since you guys went simultaneous release and I wanted to leave a quick review. You guys are doing a great job with the app and content. Beautiful layout on IPhone X.
Really looking forward to reading jump and One Piece on the go when I don’t have my iPad with me.
What I truly think about Viz 2/5
Compared to MangaRock where you can read a lot of free manga I’d have to give this app a two because it clearly advertises about free manga which they do have but not very many most manga they have you have to pay for it and that’s not okay unless you’re looking to support your manga artist directly then in most cases you can buy the hard copy at your local manga/anime shop but the quality of the mangas are pretty ill give them that but it’s 6 dollars a pop and when most people start reading I know they want to finish reading all the chapters that’s out so no I really recommend you guys don’t purchase it most of these reviews aren’t telling you what your truly looking for so I hope my review on this app helps
Great app for manga lovers 4/5
It's a great app if you love to read mangas. And it's better than the android version imo since it has a search engine added 😎.
Good manga reader 5/5
Overall great! It got me back into manga in a big way!
Best manga app 5/5
It is very good has all the mangas I like for example dragon ball super, naruto, boruto , and Tokyo ghoul
Like the old one better 1/5
This new app does not load my current issue. Thank heavens for the old app. It works way better.
Nearly useless search, comparatively limited catalog 3/5
Biggest frustration I have is the extremely limited search function when trying to find manga to purchase. No ability to search by manga-ka. Alternative titles (romanization of the Japanese title rather than whatever they decide to title it) not available. No genre search (shōjo, shōnen, josei, etc., or horror, romance, action, fantasy, etc.). Scanlation sites are better laid out, particularly if yoiure trying to find something new to read rather than finding a known title.
The new heightened focus on Shōnen Jump chapters makes the home page a total mess.
They also collect a heck of a lot of data on users with not much of an opt-out option.
Their ecatalog is missing big titles, like Ranma 1/2 and Inu Yasha, as well as a number of more obscure yet very interesting titles I know they sold hard copy that I've wanted to read for a while. Rumiko Takahashi is an incredibly popular manga-ka and has been for decades and Viz is definitely printing English translations of her works, but none of her stuff is on there. So strange. I was expecting a LOT more to be available seeing as Viz has been selling manga here in the States forever and their hard copy catalog has significant depth, but no dice on a lot of titles I was looking forward to buying.
Still, it's nice to be able to buy my tankōbon as ebooks, since I've totally run out of shelf space and the towering stacks on the floor are getting unwieldy, and their personal library function works pretty well so far. They do have Bleach, and considering there are eventually going to be 73 tankōbon, ebooks is really the best way to go with that or any of the other long-running titles. They also have a lot of free chapters available so readers can dip their toe and find out if they want to sink the $7-$11 into the manga, as well as entire series in current release, like Boys Over Flowers Season 2 (just don't try to find it under Hana Yori Dango).
Good app 5/5
Great for reading Manga wherever you go provided your phone has the battery life and there is somewhere to charge it if it doesn't
No bad 4/5
They made me 5/5
Great app for manga readers. 5/5
I think this is the best app(I have not tried any others... Yet) out there, I have most of Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, One punch man, Dr. Slump, All you need is kill, and some others. It's worth having, I just got a new iPad and am loving it. It works great with my manga and the picture is amazing(Sorry but its true). This is a app for all you manga readers, I like having the books on paper and do. Like Dragon Ball, Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, The legend of Zelda, Tokyo Ghoul, Berserk, and some others as well. But to be able to have all of my books in one place is even better. To be able to read book after book and never have to keep switching from each book is great, but the only problem is if I forget to charge my iPad it does not work. But than again if I don't have proper light the books don't work as well. But with every upside there's bound to be a downside to it as well. Like a knife can have a sharp side but unless its a double edged knife its dull on the other side. I would say get this app, try out some free chapters and see what you think. I don't think you will be disappointed at all.
Manga over 9000 5/5
By Hollow chaos
The set up is well done but I would like the shoen jump to be the first thing to see

Absolutely FANTASTIC Update 5/5
VIZ has the best digital presence for manga. This latest release has some great updates to the overall design.
OMG YESSS 5/5

By A Blonde Ginger
Amazing app 5/5
Easy and convenient to use.
By 💩 101
It's good but I want free TV not books
Good manga app 5/5
It's great to be able to read shonen jump on my iPhone and the app works well!
App is awesome so far!!!
iPhone4 iOS 7.1.2 review 4/5
Its okay, needs an update for a better manga selection.
I'm pretty great. It's quick and simple to use for someone who just loves manga.
Love it. 5/5
Honestly, this thing is so great at what it does, that I just keep buying more manga. Super happy with it. I just wish it was a trend with all manga publishers.
Viz manga 4/5
Viz manga is really good but I wish you got one free manga series for getting it or something
Support creators! 5/5
The annual Shonen Jump subscription is a real bargain. Please download this app and support your favourite creators!
yay review 5/5
By Merrick hall
i think its amazing yay!!!
Love it...thanks Viz! 5/5
This is a great app for both a casual of fanatic manga fan. I think the only thing that could possibly make it better for myself would be the ability to download the Japanese language versions in addition to the English translation editions.
Easy and simple to use, well organized with great manga selection!
Mobile Apps are great, but would love a full screen app 3/5
I'be been using this app for basically forever and aside from the fact that it's got limited titles (and includes titles on hiatus without warning like Honey Hunt), it's a pretty decent to get high quality translations and allows you to get through a series quickly. However, I would really love if Viz introduced a Mac or Windows app for full screen reading. The iPad app is so buggy and the iPhone is too small - just something to think about.
Keeps crash when I try to delete manga volumes
Major Flaw 2/5
This WOULD be a 5-star review if not for the unforgiveabe amount of crashing.
The app is well-designed aesthetically, and of course you can read tons of great manga with good, official translations and high-quality images. I mainly use it for Weekly Shonen Jump so I'm frequently downloading and deleting issues.
Here's the problem: If you do ANYTHING in this app, there is a 1 in 5 chance that it will crash. This is SO FRUSTRATING. I've had the app for years and it didn't use to be like this. It's disappointing that a company like this can't make a functional app.
Please, in the name of all that is holy, FIX what has been BROKEN.
By Ayo Quis
It's an amazing app, I have zero complaints [When I do the support team respond very quickly through email]. It's a great way to support the industry, and also the mangaka. I absolutely have no problem with paying the YEARLY subscription! Come join the fun, and read hard my friends!!!!
By NatBat girl
I love manga, but everything on here costs money. It's so annoying. Sure, they give you samples of the book, but that's kind of annoying. Main point: I hate this app. Sorry.
It's the BESSSST 5/5
By Zero sati
The best app ever!
I highly recommend it!
Viz is awesome 5/5
It's a good app and I'll recommend it to anyone I know who enjoys anime.
Cool app 4/5
It's a great app and its convenient if you want manga fast but don't have a bookstore near you. You can buy it all digitally, cool app
This app is AWESOME! It is a great way to read your favorite manga on anywhere. Love it!
Good app 4/5
This is a good app to read your manga but it lacks the options comiXology has. The app interface is also only a bigger version of their app for the phones dead hasn't changed much since their first version. A dedicated version for tablets or a design that scales up better would be great.
Great but one big problem 3/5
By Watcher of Pro esports
This app is great for reading Viz publications. It's quick and easy to use. But there is one big problem. When you try to edit the content on a device the app closes for no reason whatsoever. You open it back up and you'll see the book you tried to remove is still there.
This usually happens with me over a dozen times before I can finally remove one book. It is annoying, especially on a device with limited memory capacity.
Also does not support a reader mode for phones, so if that is your device than expect to strain your eyes.
The best 5/5
By Anthony. Jordan
All my favorite manga from when I was a kid are here. Wonderful.
The only way to read my manga. 5/5
By Terrell Royster
Been reading shonen jump for years now and this app has been thru it with me since they started going digital. I recommend this to anybody who loves manga.
Keep up the good work on this app. And add more manga♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Very good 5/5
By JEB Bacon
Just subscribed to Weekly Shonen Jump and so far I am very pleased! Viz has a very wide variety of content and give free previews every now and again. I wish they would do I little more of that in the future.
Cheap Legal Manga 5/5
I can't believe how affordable the cost is for WSJ I plan to read all my Viz manga like this now.
