Best news of the day :laugh:
I'm a much bigger fan of Android than I am of iOS, yet even I have to agree that this is the best news of the day...in fact, make that the best news of the month! Having options always makes the world a better place.
Well, owning an Android phone (ICS) and an iPad 1 and having recently bought 2 Android tablets (both ICS) for my daughters, I still prefer iOS for a tablet. I'll probably be buying a new iPad in the months to come, unless there's an Android gamechanger coming out (which seems unlikely atm) and pass my old device to my wife, so CRI would be most welcome :)

I completely agree that CRI will be most welcome once released. When it comes to the smaller devices like the phones, I mos def think Android is better than iOS since I own both. I've only used other people's tablets since none of them have the right mix of features that entice me enough to get one, yet I have to agree that iOS still completely owns the tablet segment. The new iPad is a remarkable device. Though, I haven't come across anyone with the new 10.1 Galaxy tablet yet. I believe I read that it has a feature where you can play a video clip in one window view while reading an email in another window...if that is true now we are finally talking about some true tablet multitasking. Now that would be pretty awesome. I'm also looking forward to having tablets reach the point to where there would be no difference at all between running an app on a desktop, laptop, or tablet. That's when tablets will really begin to take over in my mind. I say in 3 to 5 more years we could possibly be there.

Why wait so long?
Buy a tablet just for reading comics.
Leave the other apps for later.

If only CRI would be true. I know cYo tends to be secretive about his doings, but really, after much hope when this talk began, now I really feel that it is not gonna happen. Shame.

Personally I don't see any big advantage of a native ipad version over a web app.
I don't need to store comics on my ipad, as I have too many comics for that.
Instead I want to have online access to all my comics.
My web app does that. As far as I understand, the Android app doesn't.

A combination of both would be killer: on line if wanted, off line if needed... :cheer:

Well....that's why I also want to have a look at packaging my web app with phoneGap so the web app can run without a web server and I can make better use of the local storage of the ipad or android tablet for storing comics.
But this is just a fantasy for now, cause I first need to release the web app (hopefully today).

@jeroenwalter - I agree with perezmu, if you're app were a combo of both, that would be the next ultimate killer add-on for ComicRack. Still looking forward to the web app release as is though, because the it would then it would help eliminate one of the main reasons I haven't bought a tablet yet...lack of properly adequate storage space. :)
