This is a rather big release with one standout new feature: WebP support.

WebP gives you the same quality as jpg with 30% less image size. ComicRack supports WebP for reading and writing. Additionally if your device (Android, IPad) supports WebP, it is now the standard format used for device optimization.

To use WebP on your mobile device you need ComicRack for Android 1.77+ running on Android 4.0 and up or ComicRack for iPad 1.0.5+.

The WebP optimization sounds like it should be a great file size reduction. I just wish it had come out before I went on vacation!

Will it be able to detect what version of android we are running? Do you believe this feature will make a dramatic difference in file size? Or should I find a way of upgrading my nook to run 4.+ Thanks for the new version

Following a smooth installation I am delighted to find that the Wireless link to my iPad 3 is much easier to effect, however it is proving to be very slow in its execution.

Excellent update. Am loving the webp optimizations and if the wifi is now easier to use for syncing to the iPad that makes this the greatest update ever. In my opinion.

Comicrack, greater than sliced bread.

Connecting an iPad in non perfect WiFi networks should now be easier with the IP/Test functionality in the Advanced Settings.

For the Sync button to work on the iPad when the connection is setup manually, you've to wait for the next CRiOS update (will be submitted to the market next weekend I guess).

Ah. Your advice is noted. Little by little then.

like the new update a lot.
Is there a way to convert whole library into WebP format? Does WebP store the info like a cbz file will ?

WebP is just an image format, so it goes into .cbz, .cb7, etc. files just like jpg, png, etc. do.

You can use the 'export books' option to change image and archive formats around, and have it replace the original files in your library.
