Comic Reader! is overdesigned, but performs all the essential functions of a comic file reader. The app displays comics competently, keeps zoom level between pages, and has a manga mode. Its one unique feature is a built-in RSS Reader designed for reading webcomics. If it worked well, the RSS Reader would be an excellent feature that would make the app far more desirable. As it is, the RSS Reader doesn’t support going back to the beginning of RSS feeds/webcomics, and displays several of the built-in webcomics so that they look fuzzy and are nearly unreadable. Still, Comic Reader! may just be a RSS reader update and iOS 8-style makeover away from top honors in the category.

Getting your comics on to your iPad couldn't be easier, you can do this either via iTunes or from other apps

Via iTunes
First connect your iPad to your computer
Open iTunes and click on your iPad in Devices on the left
Click on the Apps button at the top of iTunes.
Look for 'Apps' under 'File Sharing' at the bottom of the page
Select Comic Reader! in the Apps box
Copy your comics in to the 'Comic Reader! Documents' box…done!

Via other Apps
We highly recommend an app called 'FileBrowser' for loading your comics via wifi from your computer, no need for cables! Just open and setup up FileBrowser to connect to your computer. Navigate in FileBrowser to where your comics are stored, select a comic and choose 'Open In'. It will then let you open the comic in Comic Reader! This can also be done with other apps such as DropBox
