Read Your Komiks in Style With Komik CBR/CBZ Reader for Honeycomb!

What’s one thing people like doing on their large-screened tablet devices? Reading! Up until now, however, there has been no ideal way of reading comics on Honeycomb. Now, thanks to XDA forum member kaycha, we have a Honeycomb app meant specifically for comics!

Taking aesthetic cues from Android’s gallery app and new music player, Komik combines gorgeous visuals with powerful functionality. In the words of the developer:

I would like to showcase my app – Komik. It is a CBR/CBZ reader that is designed from the ground up for tablets. First some background, I was disappointed with the quality of comic book readers on the market. The Xoom, with its aspect ratio, is THE perfect comic book reader (honestly, the aspect ratio lends to almost zero unused space), and the lack of polish in many of the other apps is sorely apparent. I wanted a reader that did a better job of showcasing my collection. This spurred me to build my own application, and thus began Komik. I would love to hear what you guys think. Any comments would be well appreciated.

Komik is the first comic/manga viewer and collection manager designed specifically for Android tablets. We are currently rapidly developing Komik and would love to hear any suggestions from you.

* CBR, CBZ, and image directory comic support
* Comic collection browser with thumbnails
* Quickly zoom in locally on a section of a page
* Page thumbnails to quickly scan through comics
* Continuous bookmarking for all comics
* Gracefully handles dual-spread pages
* Easy collection management from the library
* Easily zoom into pages

Continue to the application thread to get your fill. Leave some feedback while you’re at it to help make future versions even better!

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
