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

* 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

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