I downloaded 1.5 which DOES work fine in Mavericks.I got my icons back and it works smoothly. It was a mistake to download the new version.

Bug ridden and simple features that you would expect are not there. Basically very bad user interface. Users, please reply if you find otherwise. I am hoping its just my install is buggy. I don't want to try reinstalling as I have so many comics on the library.

Bug or features missing. (something which shouldn't be a request but its a basic need to make this app work)

1. Doesn't save last saved view in library. Defaults back to list and thumbnail as 50-50 division on every restart. I just want to have cover view only. I have to switch to this by manually dragging the divider every morning. Just makes me want to throw this app away.
2. Can't delete more than one comic at a time. C'mon, this is crazy especially I finish a 35 issue series and have to delete individually and with a prompt to ask me.
3. Can't set a view to enlarge to vertical length based on comic. This way I don't have to scroll every spread to see top and bottom of a page. The Macbook Pro 15" is enough for me to read the comic if it is zoomed to fit vertically. If it fits vertically it will show full horizontally.
4. When dragging new comics into reading lists, it won't drop comics into existing reading lists. So basically it is not customisable so why have reading lists in the first place. If it works for you then my install doesn't which means its a bug? Please let me know from other users.
5. Opening up comic, they should just have a feature to hide the top menu in the window so there's no need to go to fullscreen.
6. I recommend developer to try using iPhone/ipad app called Comic Glass by Japanese developers. It has an amazing function that can take any image in the comic to use as cover, you can also crop the cover. This makes sense especially for Manga covers since the usual scans have the front and back cover. You can crop and then it becomes the cover. Brilliant. Right now for Comicglass, I have to take each comic and screenshot the cover to be placed first by renaming 01.jpg so its the first file. Time waster... :(

By far THE best digital comic viewer/organizer out there for ANY platform. Very robust ... it handles my 40,000 + collection very well. It also has a feature that gets little "press" ... ita actually stores the info you enter to sort the files as tags on the files themselves. So if you ever need to move to another computer you don't have to start cataloging the collection all over.

This app is the reason I switched to the Mac 5 years ago.

Great app, I've been using it to read all sorts of comics. Works Great. I end up titling my computer vertically, so I can get a better view of the entire page.

Great comic app, and the best I've tried, I used to use ComicRack on windows, but this is a lot better, and the iPhone version is cool too (though it's not really comfy to read a comic on a small screen.
