This week's "App of the Week" is Marvel Comics for iPad. It's one of my favorite iPad apps so far.
Forgive my rudeness, but I don't care about the menus, purchasing options, previews, navigation etc. Every iPad application has those. The part I like is the actual reading.
Reading comics is not like reading books, you need to focus on each image, enjoy the art work, otherwise to finish reading too fast to enjoy it.
The Marvel app brings a few advantages over the regular comic books experience:
- The amazing screen improves the way the art work looks
- You can zoom in and out to focus on a specific scene.
- Unlike books, there is no bookbinding, which means you get to see the entire page
- Shopping experience is easier
- This one is the killer: the smart zoom feature turns the comic book almost into a movie. Every scene becomes a complete page, which is simply AMAZING.
I've been using the Transformers Comic app, and other apps as well – Marvel made the best one, and by far.
Here is a video review of the Marvel application. A must have for every comic fan.
