Looks like promising new things in version 2. http://www.mindersoftworks.com/blog/

I'll gladly pay an update fee but I do hope that at least my #1 feature request got incorporated: ability to download all comics in one swoop.

Best wishes for the "innovations!"

A decent start but lots could be improved. (Note: this review will be similar to my review of FunnyPages for the same reasons).

I use the discontinued ComicTastic and LOVE IT even though it has not been supported for 4 or 5 years.

1 - CT will download ALL my comics in one swoop - takes a few minutes but when I am ready to look at them they are there for instant display. MyComics - downloads them as I click on them meaning I have to wait 10 seconds or so for each new comic! ugh. Worse it MYC does not scrape the web site and display only the comic - it shows the entire web page. Seems to me I could bookmark all my comics in Safari and "Open All In Tabs" and a) they would all be ready to read and b) would not cost me $9.

2 - CT allows each comic to have its own ZOOM - some are best viewed at 100%, some at 150%. I don't see any ZOOM in MYC.

3 - CT allows for downloading archive - provide a start date and it will collect them in one swoop. No such feature in MYC.


4 - CT allows me to GROUP comics. The best example is comics that are only Sunday. This makes it so I don't have to click on a Sunday comic during the weekdays as it is in its own separate group in the comic listing. MYC has SmartFolders but I cannot see how to group comics based on days they are updated...


5 - last thing I'll mention relates back to #1. CT can be automated with a simple AppleScript to launch each morning, collect my comics and quit. This is great if I am on travel and away for my Mac for a few days - all my funnies will be waiting when I get home. MYC has to completely download each web page for each comic on relaunch (unless the comic has been added to their internal archive folders).

I plan to pay the shareware fee in hopes the developer will really rethink the functionality of this application.

Thanks for the feedback! This will help us improve MYComics for future releases. We wanted to keep the 1.0 release simple and see where the users want us to take it.
