it's one of those programs that you never notice because it always does what it's supposed to, and nothing less, or more.

Without a doubt in my mind I think this is the finest comic viewer available on a mac. I specifically say VIEWER because that's its job. It doesn't download, manage, ituneify, or promote.. It simply handles the job of viewing comics -- AND MORE -- with ease and simplicity. In PathFinder I can use SimpleView to browse directories of images with a couple of clicks, drag a compressed file onto SimpleCOmic and it will find all the things it can view and you are off.

Hats off to this developer for such an amazing free application. Thank you.

Really good viewer. My only complain would be the changed icon. The previous black/white icon was better than this one, maybe it can be optional..

Of course it is only a small point compared to the viewer itself. One of the few programs I keep in dock. :)

I like it a lot! My only suggestion is that when viewing the two page spread, there be a small break between the two pages. Make it easier to distinguish where one page ends and the other begins.

Great app right here!

One suggestion: black background on fullscreen view instead of white.

You can set the background color in the preferences.

Total newb to e-comics.
Just downloaded my first .cbr file and am very pleased with this program. It follows the OSX look and is very simple/elegant.
I am hitting the LATER button for now, but will definitely donate if I use it more than a few times.
