||Finally a comic reader for iPad done right! ComicFlow was designed with one goal in mind: providing the best experience for comic fans with large collections.
- Polished interface
- Can handle very large comic collections (1,500+ comics and dozens of GB) without crashing or becoming unusable
- Imports new comics in the background
- Doesn't need to pre-process comic files before you can read them
- Supports .cbr, .cbz and pdf files
Importing Comics (iTunes):
- Connect your iPad to iTunes
- In the Applications section, select ComicFlow in the list at the bottom
- Drag and drop comic files or directories of comic files into the Documents area
- If ComicFlow is already running, display the settings window (upper-right button) and tap on "Update Library"
Importing or Organizing Comics (WebDAV):
- Launch ComicFlow
- Display the settings window (upper-right button) and enable WebDAV server if needed
- Connect to the displayed IP using your favorite WebDAV client (Transmit recommended on Mac OS X): the login can be anything e.g. "guest" but you must enter the random 6 digits password
Manually Marking Comics as New or Read:
- Tap and hold on a comic thumbnail or a series thumbnail
- Choose the appropriate option in the pop-up menu that appears
- Renaming comics or reorganizing then in directories can only be done through WebDAV at this point
- Directories inside directories are not supported
Currently Supported / Tested WebDAV Clients:
- Mac: Finder (Go > Connect to Server)
- Mac: Transmit (http://www.panic.com/transmit/)
- Mac: Interarchy (http://nolobe.com/interarchy/)
- Mac: Cyberduck (http://cyberduck.ch/)
- Windows: Cyberduck (http://cyberduck.ch/)
If you are having problems uploading comics through WebDAV, please send a report to email@example.com with your OS, WebDAV client as well as any reported errors (otherwise, this issue can't be investigated or fixed).
ComicFlow is also the first (and only?) open-source comic reader for iPad: get the full source from http://code.google.com/p/comicflow under GPL v3 license.
