iComics is attractively-designed, but despite its polish, the app is a bit confusing to use and doesn’t excel at displaying comic files. For example, when you zoom in on a page, blurry text isn’t sharpened. That said, iComics has some good sharing features that some may find too useful to pass up. The Universal app uses the iOS extension share sheet to facilitate importing files from cloud storage services, network attached storage, and even iCloud Drive. The functionality works well, and the app also includes useful features such as the ability to open a file in a different app, an option to switch reading direction for Manga, and a choice to not back up to iTunes/iCloud.

iComics - The Comic Reader for iPad and iPhone

For those who...

  • It’s ideal for those who have a large collection of DRM-free comics.

Not for those who...

  • iComics doesn’t have a built-in library. You need to bring your own comics to the party.

Why we love it

If you’re a comic nut, iComics needs to be on your home screen. You won’t find a better option in the App Store. Additionally, you can now access your last opened comic in each collection via a Today widget. It’s super convenient.
