The Android wifi sync doesn't work for me, and the USB sync is painfully slow. This makes me quite unsure for all the syncing hopes for the windows version... :unsure:

When you say syncing, are we talking syncing the DB or the physical CBR/CBZ files? I assume you're talking the physical files if it's speed issues, but shouldn't that be a one-time hit? With my own process, I sync using USB all the time and it only takes a minute or two for the DB and scripts to sync and for CR to start. I could probably trim that time a bit by not RARing the DB, but a lot of that time hit involves syncing the scripts which is currently over 4300 files for me. The physical files can take longer, especially if there's a big batch and doing everything over USB, but again, shouldn't it be more of a one-time deal?

I ask simply because I'm in the market for a tablet and would like to understand the limitations. Basically, is Android worth the hassle or should I spend the extra money on a Windows device and a real processor. I've been leaning towards waiting for the quad-core tablets and Windows 8...but that'll be a wicked price hit.

I run CR on a Windows 7 based Inpsiron Duo tablet/netbook hybrid and an Android Acer Iconia A500. The reading experience is much better on the Android version, since cYo is optimizing the comics specifically for the app. I sync wirelessly and for an update of 50 comics it takes less than 10 minutes. USB sync for that same amount might be less than 5 minutes. I've been extremely pleased with both the free and paid versions of CR for Android.

Running the full version of CR Windows on a Win8 tablet with quad-core would be a sweet experience, I'm sure much faster than my Inspiron and you could take your entire library with you. Personally, that's not what I'm looking for, I only need enough reading to get me through a weekend or when I'm waiting around for my daughter, so a few hundred books running perfectly in Android is just right for me.
