A full featured comic book reader that allows simultaneous reader functionality as well as iTunes playback has been launched for the iPad. ComicBookPad 1.0 operates to allow multitasking despite the current lack of an iPad compatible version of iOS 4.
Released by Developica the app has real time display and zoom, thumbnails of every page, and a file library with stacks. There is no-lag with page turning and supports .cbr, .cbz, .rar, and zip. file import capability.
Reading comic books with the app is completely glitch free, and when launched the selected comic is loaded into cache memory, allowing for fast and smooth operation. Pages can be turned quickly by the user, and can gain access to any page using the thumbnail display that can be activated at the bottom of the screen.
ComicBookPad 1.0 is available worldwide on the App Store for only $8.99. Requires OS 3.2 or later.
