YACReader offers you the best way to read and manage your digital comics

YAC Reader tackles digital comics in an entirely different way from most of its competition, and is sure to appeal to those whose iPads don’t have much free storage space. YAC Reader integrates with a desktop version of the app for Mac, Windows, and Linux that manages a “library” of your comics, which it streams to your device. Thankfully, the app also supports downloading files to a device or adding them via the “open in” functionality. The reading experience is impressive, as the app keeps your chosen zoom between page taps as well as moves a zoomed in page horizontally so you don’t miss anything (rather like Comixology’s “Guided View”). Unfortunately, YAC Reader only supports Dropbox and lacks an integrated web browser for importing purchases.

iComics

Tim Oliver

iComics® is a Universal app designed for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch that allows you to read DRM-free comics from your own collection, quickly and smoothly

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.

Welcome to iComic, the premier application for reading comics on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

iComic makes great use of the multi-touch function for simple and effective page navigation and zooming to provide the best portable comic book read you will find. iComic displays high resolution comic pages (jpg, tif, or png image files) contained inside compressed zip or cbz format archives. Using the built-in download function, comics can be downloaded from the internet or from a personal server and stored locally on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Your downloaded comics are stored on your device and so are always available for reading, even when you have no internet connection.

As iTunes resizes images to a compressed format, iComic is also useful for displaying images for other uses e.g. maps, high detailed photos and ebooks (convert your pdf books to jpeg and you have a perfect reader for those large pdf files, normally unreadable due to the high memory requirement).

iComic currently provides three methods for turning pages: swiping your finger on the screen; by taps in the screen corners using the Corner-Tap method; or by Multi-Touch (tap once to page forward, twice to page back). Zooming is by the familiar pinch method used in Safari and other applications or by double tapping the screen when in Corner-Tap mode. The application is very stable and can easily handle zip files up to 60MB with infrequent problems observed with files of much larger size. Individual image files inside the zip files are constrained to a maximum 3 million pixels (e.g. 3,000 pixels high x 1,000 pixels wide or equivalent) though for the sake of battery conservation much smaller sizes (~1000 pixels high) are generally used.

A manual for setting up and using iComic can be downloaded from http://red.halfmoon.jp/AppStore_iComic_V1.3_FAQ.pdf
