Love this app 5/5
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
UPDATE: Bugs are fixed, the app works great, I love bringing comics with me to read wherever I go
App does not work. At all 1/5
This app is literally the worst piece of software I’ve downloaded in the app store. I’ve been a subscriber to Marvel Unlimited for over a year and in that time this all has never once worked correctly, constantly requiring reboots and crashing and inexplicably not loading downloaded items at times. And as of about a month ago, since it changed its desktop image to the Wakanda poster, the app literally doesn’t even work at all, hanging and then crashing to desktop every time I attempt to run it even after one or two patches and reinstalls.
The silver lining is that I can still read the Unlimited subscription on the Marvel website in Safari. So the subscription itself is still ok. But whoever Marvel is using to develop this app needs to be replaced, it is truly an inexcusably badly programmed piece of junk.
Comic lovers dream 5/5
I have subscribed for over a year, actually paid for the full year subscription and haven’t been disappointed. As you will see in other reviews, the interface of the app and some of the workings leaves something to be desired, but it continues to improve. Marvel is a comics company guys, not a tech company. New comics come out every Monday, making Monday actually an exciting day of the week. They release comics on a delay of 6 months, so while you won’t be reading the stuff that’s on comic store shelves currently, this won’t really affect you unless you’re an avid comic fan and concerned about spoilers. Definitely worth the $10 a month or $70 a year
Glitchy and no easy unsubscribe 1/5
By Crabby Comcast customer
Just buy some old back issues in bulk. This app is missing so many issues that if you were hoping to do a full read of most series you’re out of luck. There are so many glitches and bugs I can’t name them all. Worst of all there is no way to easily unsubscribe. You have to call during business hours (um, what?) or send an email. Don’t bother.
Fix the notch issue 3/5
Panel view is cut off by the notch. Fix it.
Good Content but Mediocre App QuaIity 2/5
Great to see the wealth of content here, including tons of recent releases. Unfortunately, the user experience is mediocre. No obvious search functionality, no way to aggregate series into a graphic novel or aggregated series, terrible recommendation options, and price is too high. Use ComiXology instead, although missing some of content that is here.
No access to paid for comics 1/5
I paid for comics that it seems I have no access to unless I pay 9.99 monthly seems pretty shady.
Crashes whenever I try to open it. 1/5
Just resubscribed and reinstalled the app. It crashes every time I try to open it. I've reinstalled it several times and restarted my iPad. Completely useless.
Losing words at the top of the screen iPhone X 3/5
With the latest update when you are reading the bar at the top blocks some of the words
Only needs some quality of life improvements 3/5
I love the selection, but the app could be a little better. If you leave the app while about halfway through a comic and then return, the app will jump to the last page.
And when browsing for a comic, some of the longer names get cut off, which is a major pain when trying to find the right issue.
Great app 5/5
I haven’t had any problems with the app. Marvel Support has been awesome with quick answers.
Fine when it works 1/5
It's always been finicky, tricky to download for offline, titles don't always load correctly. But the recent update has bricked the app for me. No title will load more than 3 pages and any attempt to download for offline reading prompts an error message and crashes the app. I didn't pay for a year subscription just so I can have an app I can't remotely use.
Fix the app please 1/5
Ever since the last update, it crashes after loading up.
Constant Crashing 1/5
The app hasn’t worked since the update on 2/21.
Fantastic Service, Mediocre App 2/5
Marvel Unlimited is a great value for any marvel comics fan - with (reasonably delayed) access to all new releases, and a huge selection of back issues that is updated weekly. The subscription service itself is highly recommended.
Unfortunately, the iOS app used to access it has been consistently middling for years - generally adequate for reading (if a much inferior experience to other comic readers), but with enough frustrating and quirky behavior that it doesn’t deserve 3 stars. Often doesn’t load specific pages without exiting and reloading the app, doesn’t update content reliably without relaunching, and often loses track of “currently reading” items if you do not return to home screen before switching between apps.
Same 3 page problem as always 1/5
Great concept ruined by a consistently terrible app. It loads 3 pages and then the comic ends and this happens with all comics. Google marvel unlimited 3 page and you’ll see. Stay away from this garbage app.
Stellar Service, Crappy App 3/5
By Brendan Shaffer
Marvel Unlimited is a wonderful service that I happily pay for, but this app is slow, sometimes hitting “more in series” will show random comics by random creators and you have to wait for the home screen to load before you can even access comics downloaded for offline(which by the way is only 12 at a time. Really? If you insist on limiting offline issues, AT LEAST make it 20). The reason I am not giving this a worse score is because the app IS improving with each update (if u think this app is difficult now, you should have seen it b4. It made me want to gouge my eyes out, it was so awful)
I have a paid subscription. Only allows me to see the first three pages of any comic. Awaiting response from customer service. Each time I log out of app or webpage, locks me out of account and requires me to get a new password . Waiting once again on customer service. At the moment this app is total garbage.
Needs Attention 2/5
By Amazing individual
The app is a great idea and I love comics. Unfortunately, it is also an app that crashes even on the newest iPhone, and doesn’t work most the time. Don’t pay anything yet, wait until Marvel can fix it.
Marvel could care less about this app 1/5
I have been waiting 3 years for this app to work the way it is supposed to. I have downloaded every single update. But it is still absolutely horrible. Content simply doesn't load. I have to abandon my reading experience about 50% of the time because pages and comics simply won't load. I can see these type of issues happening with the first iteration of the app, but 3 years later and the app is still unusable. Marvel just doesn't care about this app for some reason.
Doesn't work 1/5
By Lliam Mars
You'd think being backed by a huge corporation would give them the ability to deliver very basic functionality. Alas, no.
Would be good app but major problem 2/5
This app includes a very diverse selection in Marvel comics, but recently, I’ve only been able to read the first THREE pages of the comic. Now I think I should stop being lazy and become a comic collector...
By Yankfan 42
The App is nice to TRY and read comics but it seems to crash and not load things in a timely manner. You’re the #1 comic book organization in the world so it shouldn’t be this difficult for your readers to enjoy these books.
By Adam TM
Another buggy update. Forced crashed repeatedly after updating until I deleted and freshly installed the app. The app is still slow to download pages when you start reading something. Still slow to become responsive after the UI appears to load. Clicking on the “More in [comic series]” link will still occasionally search for something other than the series (sometimes it’s a random creator, character, etc.). Also, the app has now forgotten what is read and unread in my library and requires clicking each comic detail in my library (over a thousand... 😒) to get it to update what is read and unread. The comics are great to read but it seems they have an intern writing the app...
Great before this update 1/5
By Black D3th
Before the update, i was reading consistently with no problems. Now, whenever i try to open a comic and read it, the app freezes up and then crashes. Fix it yo!
Crashing issues fixed 5/5
Had issues but contacted support and their directions solved the issue quickly. Very fast response
Takes forever to load a single page in any comic. Marvel seriously needs to improve the load times or people like me will be abandoning this app all together.
Good app with some issues 4/5
Some glitches, but a great service overall.
Who’s reading just 1? 1/5
Why do I have to add every issue one by one? Why cant I just add the entire event? Or the entire series? Or at least the arc? There’s got to be a better way. 10 mins in to playing with it, its already got me thinking there’s got to be a better way. But nope, just 1 by 1, add them issues. You’ll sit here for an hour earmarking books you want to read before you can even start reading. It’s got a great selection of books, but this app is painstaking to use
No longer works 1/5
By M Rayder
App force closes about 10 seconds after opening after most recent update. Will adjust rating after app is fixed
Great value, but buggy 1/5
....Current version crashes upon launching...
Selection of older titles is limited, but still enough to keep you busy reading.
Searching by characters and such seems to give limited results that are clearly not complete.
No ability to rate or comment on issues or series.
Frustrating to use 2/5
By School of the Ages
The content available through Marvel Unlimited is quite good, but the software is not good. It hangs frequently and simply won’t load content. Reading is less immersive when you are waiting for the app to crash in the middle of your comic. This app will get sort of frozen at one spot in my reading history, and doesn’t show my most recent reads, forcing me to go into browse mode and try to figure out what I read last so I can resume. The app was worse a year ago, when it would hang randomly every ten minutes or so, but it is still not where it should be.
Doesn’t work anymore 1/5
It only shows 3 -pages of each comic now
Horrible app, no support 1/5
For a service that charges the same amount of money as Netflix, this app just doesn't work. I can't understand how the Comixology app works flawlessly and this app doesn't open on my iPhone or iPad. I have to use it through safari and you have to really work to click through pages and pages to find what you want to read. Marvel takes real money from people here and gives you a broken app. Shameful lack of corporate responsibility or care for your customer.
Don’t bother... 1/5
Not worth the time. This service could be amazing some day, but it’s just not there yet.. it’s suuuuper buggy and the subscription price isn’t low enough to warrant that.… give it some time, maybe some day it’ll improve.
Great library, HORRIBLE app 1/5
Tons of titles yet it never brings me back to where I left off reading. It still thinks I am currently reading the very first issue I read and it keeps bringing me back to that one and I have to hunt which for issue I stopped at. Awful experience. Terrible app.
Ok, Needs Work 3/5
Huge complaint I would have would be the fact that the IPhone X is not supported. Half the menus are not available on the screen due to the black bars on the top and bottom. Also, only 12 mags as a max for offline viewing? That’s seems ridiculous. The last complaint would be, not have a complete series on the app. Why have 60% of a series? Skip the entire middle!
Much better with recent patches. 5/5
Great selection of comics. I’ve been really enjoying getting caught up with X-Men comics throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s working my way to present day storylines.
The app does a much better job uploading my last issues currently. This did not always work with my iPad and was cumbersome reinstalling the app constantly to keep track of completed issues.
The app runs completely smooth since the last two updates. Uploads occur on my devices almost instantaneously once you’ve completed the issue. At this rate it’s definitely worth the subscription, especially if you’ve got catching up to do like myself. Marvel Unlimited should only get better from here.
App is slow, buggy, doesn’t remember 1/5
I’ve been an unlimited subscriber for 4 years. It has been progressively worse over time. It is like no one that produces the app actually uses the app.
* remember what I have read across devices.
* make it easy and bug free to actually read comics. Frequently it just doesn’t work.
* keep current. iPhoneX is not yet supported and there have been many updates since its release.
Please fix...again 1/5
By yeah okay765876
New update- January 2018- I would really like to read all of these titles, but they never load. Going to cancel. Very disappointed
New update: same problem with not being able to download issues. Update: have to reload the app constantly in order to read whole issues. Customer service is not helpful. Latest update won't let you load anything. I sure am enjoying the cover art and the first 6 pages of every issue, but cmon man.
Paying For a Membership, But Only Getting Previews 2/5
I have been subscribed to Marvel Unlimited for nearly three years, but I have had many problems with the app. It will often crash, have errors when loading comics and using the “read offline” option, and has most recently only been giving me three-page previews of all comics I choose to read. I am paying for a membership, but it feels like my money is being wasted. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling, and signing out and in of my account multiple times, but no matter what I do, I still only get three-page previews for comics.
So bad. 1/5
This app is amazing and everything you could ever hope for in a comic reading app.... when it works. More than half the time it's impossible to log in, it takes forever to load a comic, or you get stuck with the good ole' 3 page preview glitch. Please. Please fix it.
Great app 5/5
By Gym Rat Marco
Please add more Silver Surfer comics.
Never updated 1/5
By Maximilian L
App is barely kept alive by Marvel. App doesn’t support iPhone X screens.
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 👎🏻
