Comixology pull list app not updating

Rated 4.27/5 based on 634 customer reviews

I have other Windows 8 apps, on the same tablet, doing the same things and they are a lot faster so it is not the fault of Windows 8.

Also, Comi Xology’s web interface as well as their Android app is a lot faster so it is not their servers either.

Fortunately, the company's browser-based is just as impressive.

It has an excellent panel-to-panel Guided View mode, digital comics that release on the same day as print editions, high-definition comic book files that render stunningly on HD displays, and a new Unlimited reading plan that can save you lots of dough.

Thus it is pretty clear that it is simply a piss-poor implementation by the Comi Xology developers. One time out of three it crashes when trying to flip from the annoying “home page” to your personal comics page or when trying to make a purchase for instance.

Third, it loses the state of the already downloaded comics every so often.

There is the, all too common, fault of the app always wasting your time opening a pure publicity page instead of going straight to your personal page but I could have lived with that.

The main problem is that the app is next to unusable. Loading the home page or your comics page takes forever.

There is no way I’m going back to Android simply because some moron bean counter and/or developer decides to push out this kind of crap in some hope that people will go for their Android app instead.When writing this, and this is actually what caused me to be pissed off enough to write this post, I have just been forced to download the same bloody comic for the fourth time.Of course it lost the place where I left off reading every time.When he isn't staring at a monitor (or two) and churning out Web hosting, music, utilities, and video game copy, Jeffrey mentors, practices Jeet Kune Do, blogs, podcasts, and speaks at the occasional con.He also collects vinyl and greatly enjoys a craft brew.
