Just works perfectly, not updated for a while since the lad is a bit busy.. I am sure he will keep things freshened up when they need to be tho.. great stuff and a fantastic way to archive the funny funnies !
I like iComic as I am now able to get my favorit e comic strips that my hometown newspaper no longer prints.
And if you don't like the metal look, I suggest the haxie from Unsanity which will remove the brushed metal look.
Hey, who can beat the price of freeware?
I don't want to sound harsh on this review, but Comicastic is way better. There's no doubt. It has way more features, a good interface (I don't see why everyone likes iComic's "brushed" look) and you can view any comic you want without any plug-ins at all.
I dislike the metal interface and the strange window resizing -- and I really dislike the lack of actual comics. Also, it locks up all the time and the icon stinks.
Comictastic is a much better deal, even at a whopping $15, because it looks so pretty and offers instant support for any comic you want.
Very well-made program. Quick to respond, pretty, easy to use. I have a few gripes (ugly toolbar icons, no way to remove the included comic subscription, tabbed interface a little odd), but overall very good.
