I have ComicRack for Android and i use it with my Nexus 10, i love it.
The problem i have is to sync my comics from my Mac to my Android device, this is not practical to do it manually.

I know the topic for a Mac version has already been raised, but if that's too complicated, maybe just a sync server for Mac would be easier to do ?
I don't read comics on my Mac, but having just a library module with smart lists and possibility to sync to devices would be great !

thanks, and keep the good work

CRW 0.9.178 x64 on Win10
CRA 1.80 on Nexus 10

For those who are interested, i now have a nice synchronization solution using the following:
- Cheetah Sync
- a python script i wrote that create a specific 'to sync' folder using hard links (hard links do not consume any disk space).

What's needed after that is quite simple:
- tag the folders you want to sync with the 'sync' tag
- tag any comics that you already read (and you don't want to sync) with the 'read' tag
- the script will create a new folder that will replicate the directory structure of all the folders to sync, but without the read items

In order to schedule it you can:
- run the python script every night at a given time (using cron or launchd)
- schedule the cheetah job just after
