I don't have any word from CYO yet on something official but I really want to pick up this project for iOS. The previous person to do the iOS version hasn't been active here in some time and I don't have much hope of getting the code from them to continue so I'm thinking this might be a from scratch project. That being said, what are the main features people want from Comic Rack on iOS? For me I know it is the syncing between Comic Rack and the mobile versions but beyond that, what are some of the features you guys want in a comic reader? The more I know, the better app I can put together

For me the biggest feature lacking is the ability to browse the remote library and add books to existing lists. This would make it possible to read any book in your library from the iPad by adding a book into a currently synced list and then syncing to make it available for reading.

The ability to mark page types as you are reading is also something I would love.

The strangest issue with the iPad version if you ever get the chance to look at the current code, is when you go to the next book, after reaching the end of a book, it seems to load the pages from the end of the book not the start. I think it is keeping a placeholder variable at the old value instead of resetting for the new book.

This is sort-of a feature I'd desire. I say sort-of, because it is part of the basic functionality of it, and would require coordination with dev of the main app too.

But instead of having the Server (CRW) be the one to initiate pairing, have it be similar to Bluetooth. Meaning both have to be broadcasting and recieving, and have a simple 4-6 character pin to finalize it on both ends.

Pop over to the ComixEd forum on Facebook [1] and let's talk about maybe doing a reader app for iOS for our project.

For anybody not following things over on Facebook, ComixEd is now gathering steam.

I've moved the architecture from being a desktop application to a self-contained web application and a response front end. It's still very rough (I'm not a UX guy <g>) but is coming together nicely. Comics can again be imported into the library, and I'm writing the new features for cleaning up duplicate pages, editing the comic details, etc.

I would love to have some collaborators join me and help with the design and coding. I'd especially love to have someone who can do device development to hellp with crafting the library sync code which is a huge must-have for a lot of people.

Please join us!
