Celeste (Orienthi) | 15 comments Hello fellow she-geeks!!

I wanted to share an app for reading manga for free on the blackberry playbook called "PocketManga" I love it and its free and downloadable on the app world. I am sure there are some for ipod/ipad as well and if anyone knows any feel free to post here.

I am a mother of a newborn so things like these help when I cant purchase new material :)

Enjoy!

-Celeste

Ahh, this gave me an idea to create a discussion category for tech and gadgets!!! Do you mind if I change your post title to something like "Apps for Reading" so this thread will be easier to find for those of us looking for app recommendations?

For manga, I'm using Manga Storm for the iPad. Manga Rock 2 is also a good alternative and they're both free. They pull their sources from 3-5 of the biggest websites for manga scans. TONS of free series.

For comics, I'm using Comic Zeal which is $5. They have an iPod/iPhone-only mini version for $2. It can also read manga from right to left. Before I discovered Comic Zeal, I was using ComicBookLover which is free and simple. I highly recommend Comic Zeal though if you have a large collection and want better organization (ex. tags, hierarchy).

As for my MacBook, I use Simple Comic. Free.

Being new to the wonderful world of comics I use Comic Book Lover, it is simple enough for me to use just now. I might check out Manga Lover.

Ashleigh (KeittyTenchi) | 11 comments (Droid) I paid for Manga Watcher after I got tired of MangaWhat not updating. Manga Watcher works great in comparison - it syncs with at a great many English websites as well as quite a few in other languages.

I don't have a comic app. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Bakemono For manga on the iPad I use CloudReaders. It's free and you can change it to read right to left. It supports cbz, cbr, and PDF formats.

Jennifer | 133 comments I need to get some apps for manga and e-books and such for my new ipad. Thanks so much for your recommendations! I do use comixology for comic books and I find it to be very good. I'd recommend it.

Michelle (michellepotter) I've been using Perfect Viewer to read my comics on Android. Love it!

I have a "pull list" app on my phone called Comic Shopper. Every week it's updated with the new comics coming out. You mark the ones you want to buy, and it creates a shopping list. You can also view by publisher, which is great because I mostly read Marvel. And it tracks the comics you buy most to automatically create a favorites list to make things even easier.

And, of course, I have the Marvel app to easily purchase digital comics straight from the source.
