A comic book lover's dream come true 5/5
When I was a kid, I used to want to take all my boxes of comics with me whenever I had to leave home for an extended period. This app makes that possible. It updates every week with dozens of new (and old) comics. I have thousands of comics to read on a trip or at my local Starbucks. But my favorite part is having access to the comics I couldn't afford to buy as a kid. The library is huge and always growing.
The interface is good and the reader even better. I've discovered so many great stories since I subscribed. And I finally got a chance to read the Captain America "Secret Empire" story! I've been subscribing for about three years now with no plan to stop.
Horrible app and even worse customer service 1/5
App constantly crashes, logs and locks you out or just endlessly loads. Asked costumer service what was going on. I told them I was trying to use the app on the newest iPad, they told me to just try it on an android. ‘Nuff said.
Most used app on my phone. 4/5
I can’t put this app down. I read comics every day now. Thanks to marvel unlimited I’ve been able to read so many issues I’ve lost count, where before this I would have never been able to afford to buy how many comics I have read. Don’t get me wrong I have a collection of my favorites like the venom and carnage series or the iron wars saga, but I can’t get enough of reading them on my computer or phone. Here are a few issues with the offline downloads where sometimes if you have downloaded so many books and you have very bad service that is in and out it will sometimes delete the offline saves. Even after you turn your phone on airplane mode. But it’s ok as long as you have WiFi or decent. Word to the wise; try the one month free trial. Cancel it in your subscriptions the next day so it doesn’t auto charge next month. And if you really like it go online on a computer and get the year subscription through their desktop site. Save you about 40$-50$
it’s broken and worthless 1/5
By Bret Fausett
It rarely works. I can’t believe they charge money for this.
I’ve thrown money in the trash for months on this 1/5
Bad reviews but I thought I’d try the trial. I had a great time reading the Planet Hulk and decided to keep the app. After the trial ended I have been able to read maybe one comic. The loading time is impossible. I can’t tell if it’s making progress or not. I’ve left my iPad Pro on for an hour straight with no luck. I was about to cancel it but then there was an update that supposedly addressed this issue. Another month another handful of money in the trash. My phone can’t get anything to work either. I could have bought a hundred comics by now. So irritating.
When you update, uninstall + reinstall! 3/5
Otherwise comics may not load on the app.
As for the app, the interface is not that great, but it is better than the non existent interface on the desktop platform.
The main appeal is the access to and viewing of the comics on mobile, and the app meets the minimum requirements (although just barely) in this regard
I was really looking forward to subscribing again but I still don’t see the immortal hulk series
FIX IT ITS SO BAD 1/5
Hopefully a work in progress 4/5
I use this app almost everyday. I've read thousands of comics through mostly my iPad
That said, it's not without its many, many glitches and quirks. Pages often fail to load unless you tilt your screen, leaving the app flips you to the last page of the comic, the "more in" button for comics in a series rarely works, and navigation is far from intuitive to name a few issues.
There's a learning curve to this labyrinth. For the price and the convenience though, I'm more than happy. Best $60 I’ve ever spent.
It works great. 5/5
By Concerned engineer
Works great, has enough comics to spend a lot of time on and the ability to download comics to read offline is fantastic.
I don’t how people can give this app like 3 stars. It’s everything you could every want to catch up with marvel comics.And I mean the 6 months thing is disappointing but you can still use other mediums for that. Quality is excellent. The amount of series there are is great. Honestly if DC did this too I would be so happy. but anyway definitely worth 70/year
Can’t perform simple tasks 2/5
By Fast shooting
I started a free trial. I tried to link my existing Marvel account but the stupid app keeps signing me out or crashing. The update didn’t fix it.
I’m honestly at a loss at how awful this app has, and continues to be. I want to think believe that it is just a difficult app to develop.
It’s slow to load and makes it difficult to start reading any series, events, etc. from the beginning.
I want this to be better because it’s amazing to have access to so many comics, but the amount of frustration with the app really makes it hard.
Doesn’t fill my iPad Pro 2/5
Please update to work with iPad Pro 2018. The comic doesn’t even go to the edge!
Horrible app 1/5
By Lifelong comic reader
A horrible app that constantly freezes; tech support says delete and reinstall but that doesn’t help; if you have password problems the reset freezes and never works. If that is what you are looking for, boy howdy have you come to the right place!
Loading forever 1/5
Doesn’t load, why am I paying for this garbage?
...and no more paper cuts! 5/5
I’ve spent about two weeks with Marvel Unlimited now and my life has changed for the nerdier! Practically endless amounts of my favorite heroes and they’re all so neatly organized and waiting to be searched. Having the last issue I was reading readily available in a little queue across all devices is the best part!
Comics won’t load 4/5
I click on a comic and it just doesn’t load. The update did not fix the problem please fix this.
not working 1/5
loading logo infinite loop...this app is trash
Fix app for Stan lee if not us! 2/5
we just lost Stan Lee it’s time you guys made this app work smoothly!! FOR STAN!!!
A Fine Service Hampered by Corporate Cowardice 1/5
I love Marvel Unlimited but I've had to cancel my subscription after the company caved to meathead alt-right trolls by canceling two books I was looking forward to, Vision and Shadow of Vader. Can't give them my money anymore.
Nothing works after last update 1/5
The last update has made it so that you can’t read anything more than 3 pages of the comic, and that’s only when you try to download it.
Everything is stuck on loading screen until you have to force it to shutdown. Doesn’t get any better from there
DO NOT DOWNLOAD UNLESS YOU WANNA PAY 1/5
It gives off the appearance of not charging but it does after you download it and try to read any comic and I deleted the app the same day and it tried to charge my card and still is today but I have no money on it so y’all outta luck and so am I because now I can’t download any apps without paying for his dumb app I never used
Cheap and works well 5/5
The app is only 9.99 a month and works fast on both when I’m an connected to the internet and when I’m not. Sometimes it’s a little slow loading a comic but 90% of the time no issue.
I think this app is great. You can read whatever book you want or what ever favorite avenger or marvel character u want like Spider-Man,Venom, and the Man himself Stan Lee.
Never loads… 1/5
Have launch the app many times and waited and waited and waited for the complex to load.
Would be awesome if it worked. 1/5
By Ricky Steamboat
If you really like looking at a loading screen and never getting to actually read anything, then this is the perfect app for you.
Seems like each time they do an update it breaks for a differ t group of users.
Trash app 1/5
Can’t get it to load comics. When it does load a comic, only the first few pages load. If you’re into watching a spinning loading animation then this app is for you.
Needs iPad 2018 support 2/5
By Maximilian L
Needs to add support for the new 2018 iPad Pro so that the correct resolution is used and doesn’t look so bulky.
Just about done. 1/5
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but...I think I want out. What am I paying for? Comics I can’t read, because they never freakin’ load?! It was good while it lasted, but I am literally not getting my money’s worth. Enough just might be enough.
Wish the app work more than 1 in 10 times 1/5
If the purpose of the app is to allow the user to read the comics then yes this app is a failure. Comics never load unless you re install the app a few times first. Seriously Marvel what’s the deal?
An idea for possible addition (Hey Management) 4/5
By SnowDogg chucky
It would be nice to have a feature where the series would download into your library when they as issues were released.
Comics won’t load 1/5
By Awesome guy 765
The last two weeks most comics won’t load on marvel unlimited. When I’m at work they won’t load at all. Also not on the subway. When I’m at home they load sometime
It’s driving me crazy. I want to read comics without frustration
The app crashes so much now. When I try to download a book to read the app crashes five times before it slowly starts to download one comic. After I read that issue the app will crash a bunch more abs I have to keep restarting the app until it works again.
This app used to be such a great way to comics. Now it just frustrates me so much because the app crashes so much.
Please update the app do it won’t crash so much !!
Great service, poor programming 3/5
For $10 a month, it’s incredibly hard to beat the deal you get. If you read at the very least, 5 comics a month, you are already beating the price. And trust me, there are plenty of comics worth reading including many of the best arcs Marvel has to offer. But the programming is just awful, their website programming is very similar. I’ve found what works best for me through a long series of trial and errors.
I also highly recommend paying for the service through their website and not Apple. Their programming is completely messed up and I got over charged twice and no service.
Comics won’t load 1/5
For the past 3 months or so I have not been able to load a single comic on my iPhone, iPad, Pc, or MacBook. The status wheel just spins indefinitely. Comics simply will not load.
Worst app ever 1/5
You have to create a new account every 3 months because it will log you out then it won’t remember your log in and password and then when you create a new account you can’t use your log in and password because they’ve already been used
Slow or no service 2/5
App no longer works, when it does work, downloads are VERY slow. Considering canceling.
Completely ruined my Apple ID & DOES NOT WORK 1/5
I signed up for a free trial and now I can’t use my Apple ID account because they overcharged my account. I never even got the chance to use it because it crashed every time I tried to do anything!!
So great on iPad! 4/5
The amount of content is incredible, the image quality is great, leaving my rating at 4 stars since the app does frequently contain bugs. I would rate it lower for that but the team actively maintains and fixes them quickly, while improving the user experience.
Having said all that, this app is a must if you are even slightly curious about gaining access to the Marvel archive. Being able to go all the way back to the 60’s, or even 40’s and experience these comics as they were originally published is a real privilege.
App is great when it works 1/5
Ever since the latest update,I can not do anything in it.It constantly freezes and locked me out of my account!! I spend my hard earned money on this app every month and this always happens.please fix this!!
Consistently bad interface 2/5
I’ve used Marvel Unlimited for the past 4 years. I’ve had issues with the iOS version of the is app almost every time I’ve used it. As of the past week or so the app won’t load any comics and I’ve yet to see a fix for this issue. The worst part is that the Marvel website’s interface for Marvel Unlimited is awful so I have no alternative. Due to this, I’m canceling my subscription and looking for alternatives. Issues include not loading random pages of comics and having to leave and come back to comic (sometimes even leave app entirely) to get that page to work. Random failures to load comics at all and app crashing among other things. The only thing stopping this from getting one star is the fact that the comics are awesome and look great when they work.
Still loading 1/5
Have yet to load a comic since my last review.
Offline Abilities Are Broken 1/5
Can not remove offline books and my list already full which means I can’t add any new ones! I primarily read in area where my signal is poor or not working so this feature is important to me
Love Marvel, But This App...... 3/5
So frustrating. You never know what you’re gonna get. The app, which you pay an annual fee for, is consistently not working. When this app works, it’s my absolute favorite app on the iPad. When it doesn’t work, which feels more often than it should, it’s a waste. So far, after a delete and redownload, the apps performance has improved, but for how long is anyone’s guess.
I have this app for my phone and iPad. I love it. . . When it works. Currently I can’t read any comics. When I tap on an issue to read it, the loading screen appears and never loads. If this issue is resolved I would gladly give it a better rating. But right now I am strongly considering canceling my account because as of right now I can’t read any comics online or offline.
App never works, comics never load 1/5
App is constantly broken. Often after updates none of the comics will load and there is no explanation as to why. Key comic issues missing as listings as well. Worst Marvel product I’ve ever paid for.
Silent treatment 1/5
By Deadman laughing
I don’t know what happened but after this update I can no longer used the app. it’s continually loading please fix are I’m going to get an refund.
Doesn’t Load Comics 1/5
Last update hosed the ability to even read comics. Kind of an important thing with a comic reading app right? Guess if you are okay for paying for a loading app screen month after month you’ll enjoy it.
I’m personally a big fan of this app. However, over the past month or so, I haven’t even been able to load a comic. Doesn’t matter what series or year or anything. Hope this gets sorted. Would love to continue using MU.
