AppAdvice has teamed up with Obsidian Arts in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Comic Reader! ($3.99) for iPad. Comics have made a big comeback in recent years thanks to the iPad, but you must have the proper app to fully enjoy them in digital form. That's where Comic Reader! comes in. It's able to load, sort, and manage all of your CBR, CBZ, ZIP, and RAR comic files with little hassle. Comic Reader! allows you to import comics via the usual iTunes File Sharing method, where you just drag and drop files at will from your computer. You can also use other apps like Dropbox to wirelessly load comics into the app, which simply requires you to find the comic you want and then use the "Open In" feature to bring it into Comic Reader! Once your comics are all loaded, Comic Reader! automatically sorts them into their specific series, or you can view them in small or large list form. The series view is the most eye-catching and allows you to see if a comic has been started or finished, but the list views offer the ability to see exactly which page you're on as well. No matter which view you choose, you'll be given quick access to other features like the ability to delete comics and tag them. As for actually reading a comic, just swipe or tap the edges of the screen to flip pages. If you want to jump to a specific page, just tap the screen and swipe through the thumbnails at the very bottom. Comic Reader! has a quite a few other nifty features like a customizable RSS news feed, portrait and landscape support, quick access to screen brightness, and the ability to create reading lists for comics that span multiple series.
