Lock zoom is good. - I have tried this app, and it works perfect for me. All you need when you read a comic in a fullscreen mode is: 'lock zoom' feature, and this apps can do it. I'm satisfied thx. Very good, simple comic reader.

Review by Catmoderne

Comic books have 2 up pages, but this app doesn't - Useless! A two page layout and mouse gesture page turning and you've got something, without that, just annoyance.

Slightly frustrating - This app is fine, but it crashes regularly. Can get frustrating over time.

Version 2.1
Review by Dandy Dan the Flim Flam Man

Do not download this app. - I like that the developer tried to keep the app lightweight, but the lack of a two page view is more than an annoyance, it makes the app unusable. Besides the fact that you can’t see two page spreads, when a cbr is formatted with facing pages the app will skip every other page. Do not download this app. It’s a waste of money.
