Starting with Cosmixology:
This app can easily sync among all the different devices – be it your laptop or smartphone. To get started, you will have to create an account to log in. Previously purchased comics will be available on any device that you choose to log in from. The best part is that irrespective of which device you were previously reading your favourite comic on, when you log in again, Cosmixology always gives you the option of starting where you left off. So you don’t have to go through the hassle of wasting your time flipping the digital pages to resume your reading.
Get any comic that you want:
This app might have partnered with Marvel, but it hosts a wide collection of comics from both big publishers and small. So if you don’t stick to one particular comic, this app will be your favourite where you can switch between any comic that you’d like, irrespective of who published it.
Using the app:
The user interface is very simple and easy. The home screen will show you the featured section, popular comics and new releases. Since all the comics are released online the same day as their respective hardcopies, you will never fall behind your peers, just because you opted to go digital. There is a search option where you can search comics by using names, publisher’s name and so on. There are different criteria that you can use to go through the huge collection such as publisher, genre, ratings and so on.
If you come across a comic that you might want to read, tap the issue icon and you will be able to see the description, rating, pricing and even read a few sample pages to get a feel of the issue. Selecting, purchasing and making payment is smooth, just like any other e-commerce site and your comic is downloaded quickly for you to get busy reading.
One way in which this app is sure to win your heart is the alerts that it allows you to set up, informing you when the latest issue of your favourite comic series is releasing, thus always keeping you on the top of your game.
