WebcomiX was one of those apps I had to write. I like comics and, to a certain degree, web comics were the next evolution of the genre. There was just sssoooo many limitations with reading a comic in a browser though. So, I came up with a list of things that the app should support and coded it. A lot of those things have fallen by the way but the core list is as follows.

  • It should keep your position in serials.
  • Consistent navigation buttons.
  • It should tell you if anything has been updated.
  • It shouldn’t rip off the content creators.
  • It should live in your pocket.

This is where your favourite comics live. A green title means there are unread episodes. Black means you are up to date and red means there is a problem with the comic.

The screen for reading comics. Always use the on-screen controls for navigation.

Previous & Next. To go back and forth.

First & Last. Go to the beginning or the latest episode.

Goto. This lets you enter the episode you wish to jump to. It is either a number, a date or some text.

Alt Text. If the comic supports it, the Alt Text button will be visible.

Share. Lets you share a comic on any installed social media platform.

This is a list of all the comics. You can sort the list in a number of ways. It also shows when the comic started, whether it is new to the app and whether it has finished (no new content).
