AWESOME

:
I got this app to show some suport for the dreamland Chronicles, a very awesome webcomic on it own, and ended up staying up all night reading the other webcomics in this app. All of them have great writing and difrent art styles. I would recomend this app for anyone who has some down time at work or at home and would like to excape to another world for just a little while.

5/5 stars

Almost perfect implementation, and yet it's perfect for all ages

:
Stop reading this review and download the app.... It's infinitely more entertaining!!

I've followed The Dreamland Chronicles in print and online for years now, and as soon as I heard an app with digital versions of the books was going to be available, I started checking the App Store DAILY looking for its release. What has been released is well worth the wait, and a wonderful way to carry The Dreamland Chronicles with me everywhere I go. In addition, it gave me the opportunity to read more of Scott's work, which is of the universally, ageless humor found in the best animated movies. Fans of Disney (especially Pixar) movies will find plenty to love in the pages presented here! Also highly recommended to fans of Baltazar & Franco!!

I do have a couple of minor navigation/utilization quirks that could be improved upon to make this app even better:
*Including a navigation to "jump around" to specific pages would help greatly, as sometimes I want to skip back and forth (it's a quirky way I read) and having to flip page-by-page is a bit awkward.
*Include orientation recognition, especially for the landscape-presented books. I typically hold my iPad with the Home button on the left when it's in landscape position, and it would be nice for the books to recognize how the user is holding and re-orient to fit.

Aside from these two minor quirks, I can't recommend this app enough... And if you read this whole review, you just wasted valuable seconds you could have used reading the great works contained in the app.... So stop reading and go download!!! :)

The new way to read to your kids

:
Disclaimer, I am not a parent, but I've studied their behavior and this app will take away the uncertainty that they've chosen the correct book for their children.

iKids Comics offers a way to try out eleven of author Scott Christian Sava's stories. These eleven stories will give a sampling of the first 2 to 3 dozen pages of each, ending at a jumping-on point. If your child enjoyed what they've viewed, to get the rest of the story is as simple as a button to click on the last page.
The 2-to-4 dollar range for these stories, that are longer than your standard children's book are quite affordable in comparison to what a hardbound book goes for these days.

iKids Comics also gives you a full-length story: Ed's Terrestials, for free. It's a whimsical story of a grade-schooler who has runaway aliens hiding out in his treehouse.

On the interface, parents may have trouble navigating the pages at first, although their kids should be able to show them how it works. I did have the app quit unexpectedly, as I flipped back a few pages to get to the beginning. The app remembers at what page your were at last, so it isn't a big problem to get back to speed if you're interrupted.

What to like:
•Perky, stylish artwork
•Longer stories for much less than hardbound books
•All-ages content
•Quick loading time over WiFi network

What I'd like to see:
•A navigation button to the beginning of the story, instead of flicking all the way back (like I mentioned before)
•Artwork that doesn't pixelate when zooming into a single pattern. Some jpeg artifacts when larger than 100%

I highly recommend this app for anyone who likes all ages comics and storybooks.
