2.0 out of 5 stars Crippled by content sync issues January 26, 2012
I really want to like this app. The books look great on the Kindle Fire screen and the actual process of reading them works very well.

The biggest problem is not all of the content available on their web site is on the Fire. It's actually gotten worse since launch. Out of 51 new titles released yesterday, only 32 of them appear on the Fire. What's worse is that some books that have been out for months still do not appear on the Fire either.

The same thing happens with DC books that go on sale. The web site will reflect $1.99 however the Fire app still charges $2.99. I tried buying the book directly through the site but it took days before my Fire reflected the purchase. Since there's no explicit "refresh" button on the Fire app, I can't even attempt to explicitly synchronize my account with the server. I'm just stuck helplessly hoping it will resolve itself.

A lesser issue than the content sync problems is the UI itself. Most sections have "See All" text above them. It takes anywhere from 5 to 30 taps before it registers that I pressed the button. There are also some minor annoyances when navigating around my comics that I'd be able to dismiss if not for the broken update mechanism.

They may get these issues resolved eventually, but like I said it's gotten worse in the two months since the Fire launch. If you haven't invested in comics through Comixology yet, I'd hold off if your primary means to read it is the Fire. It's just not reliable enough to sink money into.

I had originally tried this app on my phone and on my computer, but wasn't a huge fan. I guess I enjoy having a physical copy of the comic in my hand. Plus, I didn't enjoy reading my comics on such a small screen on my phone, and the layout on the website just didn't look right. But I got a Kindle Fire this Christmas and rediscovered this app so I figured I'd try it out again, and I was impressed. The comics look gorgeous. Clean, clear & crisp. I also enjoy the option of being able to move from panel to panel in zoom mode, makes for a better experience reading your digital comics than using the mobile app or on the computer.

My biggest complaint about this app is the fact that you can't search for any DC titles on the Kindle Fire. Even though you can't search for these titles via your Kindle, you can go onto the website & purchase your comics there, and then download them through your Kindle Fire by going to the "Purchases" tab. It's a bit of a hassle, but not a complete bummer. I would rather cut out the middle man and download my DC comics straight from the app onto my Kindle.

Also, I've read that people have had issues downloading there comics after purchasing them from the website. I did a few tests myself, and I had no issues downloading my comics onto my Kindle Fire after purchasing them on the website.

Otherwise a great app for anyone who loves comics, but doesn't have the time to venture out to their local comic shop. I just hope the guys at ComiXology fix this lack of DC titles on the Kindle Fire soon....

1.0 out of 5 stars WTF Comixology??? October 12, 2013
Tried to purchase the latest episode of "Walking Dead" this morning. It finally downloaded, but the app now insists that I have to have a Comixology account. So I created an account, but now I keep getting error messages saying that I have to sign in (even after I HAVE signed in) to view my purchases, and my Kindle Fire HD apparently isn't authorized to view purchases (even though I've been reading comics on it for the past 6 months).

WTF Comixology????? Get this fixed, and NOW, or I expect a full refund that every purchase I've made in the last year and 1/2, and then I'll uninstall the app.

1.0 out of 5 stars No D.C. Comics July 28, 2012
Was very happy at first; then all D.C. comics and Gears of War comics just disappeared... I would not recomend downloading this app unless you are only interested in comics from select publishers. Inquiries went unanswered.

Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed using this app until the last update. The guided tour is improved and it is easier to find and search my comics, but the app now crashes for no reason, purchases download in random order, and it locks me out of comics which I have bought using my Amazon account. Old comics appear to be fine. New issues are inaccessible. Today I ordered 3 issues in a four part series in issue order. 4 and 3 downloaded before issue 2. I could get into issue 2 earlier today. Now all new purchases are locked. I was instructed to log off and back on. I tried creating a new password for my account. I can get to these new comics only via my PC.

This is totally unacceptable. If a company is going to release a new version as bug ridden as this then they should have a built in rollback feature to put me back to the previous version. Even Marvel asked my permission to be put in beta testing for their new version before just updating me.

Amazon, if you are going to make this your primary comics reading app, please demand that they fix it or open rights for other apps to be downloaded like Marvel Unlimited.

Comics have disappeared from my Kindle
This may not be the problem you have, but I had to go to the app settings and increase the space allotment to have all of my comics on my kindle. The default is only 250 megabytes.
