    Hey again.

    For a long time i've been trying to read my comics on the go, for free.

    I tried a lot of apps, but they all didn't worked.

    Yesterday i bought "Comics" from App World and at first i was very impressed with it! For the first time i could read my comics with no problems.

    But, it didn't recognized one of the cbr files. No prob then, because it was the first comic of the series and i already had read it before.

    But today, when i restarted to read more comics, it already didnt recognized like 10 cbr files, some of them, 3 in a row, of the next ones i was going to read.

    Its weird because i asked a friend who has an Ipad 2 and there isnt any problem with his comics...

    Bug? Bad file(how?)?

    Any toughts?

    I'm kind upset because i paid 2,50 for that app :s

    Hi,

    first of all sorry for the delay. I have to admit that I spent too little time on CrackBerry nowadays.

    Secondly we are still working on 100% compatibility. The RAR format is a proprietary format with very little documentation, which is certainly not helping. Our current plugin was written in Adobe AIR, but the performance is suboptimal for larger files, that's why we decided to rewrite it using a native extension. It is however a quite complex process and it is taking way more time than expected.

    In short: yes, we are aware that not all CBR files can be read, but we are working towards a solution (although more slowly than expected to be honest).

    But should i try to aquire the same comic book at another source?

    Or it will stay the same?

    Its not a big deal(although i'd rather have it working 100%), since it only doesnt recognize(for now) like 10 books, and im able to read them at home and read the rest on the go, but anw i(as u know, of course) would like it be to working

    But keep up with the good work, and ill be waiting for an update.

    You could convert the files to zip format by using 7zip (freeware) or other software.

    I had a couple of issues with this app when I first installed it that I was not able to figure out. I ended up deleting and reinstalling the app and it has worked perfectly ever since.

    Sometimes I get the same problem as well. I find it happens when the file name has % or _ in it. I usually edit the name by removing these characters and they seem to work just fine after.
