View Full Version : Digital comics and Atomic Robo

12-09-2011, 06:41 AM
I just got an iPad and was wondering which digital comics app would be the best to get Atomic Robo on?

Also just generally which is the best app, comiXolgy's Comics app seems pretty comprehensive but I'm curious if it's as good as it looks or if there are better?

Edit: Fuck typo in the title.

In my experience, ComiXology looks great on the iPad.

The panel by panel "guided view," while a surprisingly elegant content delivery method is completely unneeded on the iPad. You can see full pages at almost print size -- I'd say it's around 90 - 95% as large and extremely readable. Hell, the screen at higher brightness settings looks better than most pages in print I'm sorry to say.

Comics+ is good too, but I don't have as much experience with that and zero experience with it on the iPad as I do not own one. Both apps are free and both offer a selection of free comics including some Robo on both platforms. Check 'em both out and see which one you prefer.

Just in case anyone is rocking the Android platform, I can vouch for ComiXology there as well. I have tried various Android phones and the 10" Toshiba Thrive Android tablet.

On the tab, as Brian said, you can view full pages and it looks awesome. If I was ever unsure about making all Robo purchases digital before, I'm not at all unsure now!
