Feature Requests:
* Please consider an application icon that reflects the comic-centric nature of this reader.
* Right-To-Left Manga reading was chosen as default, should be Left-To-Right, or have a dialog asking the user what he reads most frequently mangas or US comics, and choose accordingly.
* When going to the next page, please move the page to the top corner, right now it moves to the center of the next page. Same for previous page.
* Option to force screen on all the time while reading
* Option to force screen brightness while reading
* Option to show low battery warning while reading
* Pinch-to-zoom - it's just too convenient and expected by users
* Homescreen Widget 2x2/3x3 - the latest opened comic book/page. Shows the latest opened/read page, and in its corner a smaller thumb of that comic book's cover. Also info about the name and the page number, both optional from widget settings.
* Playlist (Reading Order) management.
* Shortcuts - create Playlist or a Folder into a screen shortcut. When clicked, move to the latest opened comic on it's latest read page from that Playlist or Folder.

Do most of these (Playlist may require more effort but is worth it) and slap a 2.99$ price, and I'll buy it immediately.

Thank you for your suggestion.

1.I'm a programmer not art designer. So my art sense is not enough to design a good icon. I'll try to think other design.
2.I make this software is mainly for read Japanese comic(Manga). So I make Right-To-Left as default. Maybe show a dialog to let user choose on first startup is a good idea.
3.Yor may try set page origin to reading direction
Menu -> Browse -> Reading direction
4~7. I'll add these function in future.
8~10. I don't have plan to add these function currently. There is many other function need to add. Maybe I'll consider these when I completed other function.

XDA is rife with designer talent that is eager to work for quality projects, so maybe you should just look around and ask for art/theme designers to land a hand or provide assets for backgrounds, etc? You will be surprised just how much your app will be improved with proper artwork.

Very nice app, fast and powerful. I have been looking for a simple sequential image viewer like this since I got my Android phone and I've tried quite a few; this is the best I've seen yet.

What I like:
  • Fast interface
  • Customizable touch zones allow quick zooming and navigation
  • Good format support
  • Can browse into directories that start with a dot

A few improvements I'd like to suggest:
  • I like the option to select the resampling method, but nearest-neighbor doesn't look very good and the other options perform too slowly on my phone to be practical. Other image viewers (such as the default Gallery) seem to handle image scaling with a better quality/performance tradeoff. Also it seems like there is an off-by-one error when selecting the sampling method, when I select a method I always get the method just above the one I selected.
  • It would be nice if there was an option for automatically switching screen orientation when the phone is rotated. Also, when I switch orientation the app steps forward to the next page, I think it should stay on the same page.
  • I don't see a long-press action, that could be another configurable action. It might be useful to display the touch commands on long press in case you forget some of the less-used commands and need a reminder. Or it could be configured to execute some other action.
  • The app is not too big currently, but it is larger than some other similar apps. For example ACV is under 300KB.

All in all, great app! Thanks for releasing it and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it in the future.

Thank you for your suggestion.

1.You can choose Averaging method it's have normal image quality and fast.
And you found a bug I'll fix it soon.
2.Automatically switching screen orientation will be add in future. You found another bug I'll fix it soon.
3.I don't have plan to add long-press action currently.
4.Because this app is use native c++ library(libpng,libjpeg etc.) to handle image&archive files so will be a little bigger

Can you make the app show thumbnail's of the jpg/png (not the comic book files)? This way, I can finally get rid of the android gallery app. I will gladly donate if this feature can be done.
