Melbourne, Australia – Announcing that bitolithic, the developers of Comic Zeal, have provided details of their upcoming iPad specific version through their blog. Comic Zeal was the first comic reader on the iPhone and it has continued to evolve and grow with the platform. The new version continues the tradition by providing a user interface tuned to the abilities and needs of Apple’s upcoming tablet device. Comic Zeal V4 offers:
* An integrated user interface, the iPad’s large screen is used to maximum effect by always showing the comic page the user is reading. The user selects, organises and imports comics using the contextual pop-ups that form the basis of the iPad user interface.
* An improved comic import experience. Comics from Comic Zeal’s free comic library are now hosted in Amazon’s S3 service for lightning-fast downloads and reliability. Users can import their own comics without need for an external conversion program.
* A visually rich experience, the interface shows comics gliding over a richly textured background. Bookmarks and bags show you which comics you’ve started reading and which you’ve finished. Boxes let you know there’s a whole series just a tap away.
The announcement post discusses the new iPad specific features of Comic Zeal V4 together with the reasoning behind the decisions that were made.
Pricing and Availability:
Comic Zeal V4 will be sold for only $7.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category. Promo codes will be available for qualified reviewers as soon as the application is released. Please specify the website or blog you represent when making your request.
