Doesn't work. I enjoy gamer cat and other comics. Saw the 30 days giveaway and thought it a great idea to get the app. Problem is every day since the 30 days started the app says nothing but something went wrong every single day and now there's only 2 days left. Forget not being able to win anything for the 30 days I can't even use it at all anyway. absolutely frustrating app if I try to create an account or log in or use Facebook login it just gives me an error every single time. impossible to use useless app.

Alexis Boom

Broken This was a great way to connect to authors and the community. Now I just get "Cannot communicate with Taptastic, please try again" for the last week.

Marco Govoni

It can be improved It's still painfully slow, it still lack good contents (didn't they have a partnership with daum? So were are their amazing korean webtoon?) and the allerts are really annoying. Anyway they have some good stuff but line webtoon is way better for both speed and contents.

Colby Smith

Glitchy I dont read a whole bunch of comics there but it's alright i guess? sometimes the comics dont want to load and if i go back it stopa responding

Realta Cain

Great But One Small Problem I love tapastic and all the unique comics, artists, and authors. I like the app and being able to access comics on my mobile, I just have one issue. Whenever the app can't or won't connect I get logged off. Other than that, I love it

Ryan Muse

Great, but Nexus 6 bugs This is a great app. My complaints are bugs that I have only seen on my Nexus 6. The bottom control bar does not reappear at the end of the comic, and the pull to navigate between comics feature only works in going to previous comics.

Kelly Scheffer

Love the free comic My absolute favorite comic app now, just so many new comics that I get to read and see new artist all the time but since the update the app keeps telling me that my WiFi is down when it is not and keeps comingn up with that it has no connection.. that recently started I believe after the last update but still loving the theme behind it

Keith Elijah Crespo

Add another feature! I saw the mobile site version of Tapastic. And I saw that it updates new posts on the main page (Like Facebook). I want that on the app, my browser is frickin' slow :|

Megan Erhart

Needs zoom It would be really great if it had a zoom. Lot of the comics I can't read. But otherwise its great and sleek. Very easy to use and scroll through.

Lena Slat

Slow I have to say I enjoy the app. The one issue I have is that it is sooooo slow. Otherwise, great app.

Tibor Viktor Pásztor

Awesome Only reason I gave 4 stars, is that it would really be nice to see and answer messages in the app too.

Heather Laster

Crashes... Not sure if they are overloaded with traffic or if it's a bad update, but the last 3 days I have had no luck loading any of my comics, let alone the daily comic snack. Please review your android version and refresh. Thanks.

Jasmin Lue

Reading list won't show correct numbers Since the last update, my reading list only tells me that there is supposedly one unread chapter per comic instead of the actual number. I'm not entirely sure this is only because of the update, might also just be my phone and its compatibility problems

cute stuff

Love Great app for anyone who love comics but I wish it had more anime like it said

Caela Mendini

It could be better I would like to be able to set notifications on or off, save comic to device, have a favorite section for single pictures, a download to read later if no internet access is available, but it is a very nice app otherwise.

Fellow Frog Person

Uninstalling Had high hopes for this, instead. Very slow. Always crashing alot. I have a fast phone but I still lag. Bye.

Jackie Hoffler

Won't open It'd be nice if it can open!!!

Darrin Stephens

Great app The best app to read and even create comics! Just a few things I wish I could do in the app. 1. Could see who subscribe to my comics. 2. Upload images when you reply to members.


Its using some much ram and space. Sometimes it just stops.

Dana Mandel

Slow Says i have no internet connection even when in 4g with full bars.

Juan Garzon

Where are the reading options I like the app and want to turn filters on and off and can't find the reading options anywhere. Will update when I find a solution

Sheedo Angel

Its amazing!!!! I enjoyed using this app

Elizabeth Halstead

Great for reading on the fly I've enjoyed Tapastic for a little while now & it's nice to have a mobile version that works nicely. It's much easier with a larger phone, but scales fairly well to smaller smart phones still. I wish there was a way to set a light notification for it as well as the top bar comic snacks notification.

Cyndi Foster

Above and beyond I really like Tapastic app's new face lift and the updates. It's now easier to find new comics, like/comment/share/subscribe on the comic, and easily get to the creator's profile page. I really love that more of the main website's features are making their way to the app. Great job Tapastic team! As a comic creator/reader I'm very proud to use the Tapastic app as a platform for my comic and follow my favorite series, now on my smartphone. <3

Paige Hann

Awesome I've been on tapastic for years, and I've always loved it. The fact that you can read comics and talk to creators for free is fantastic. I got the original app, and it was more convenient, but it posed a few problems. This New update though fixes all of it. You can no read the comments and search much easier on the app. I really like this app and I really like this site.

Teenage Dirtbag

Really awesome Great for keeping up with comics and finding new interesting ones, I especially enjoy lying to my friends to get them to read emotionally devastating comics so I can ruin them too

The Shorty Gul Art Shop

Best Manga Comic App Ever I have the Viz Media app and I had Manga Reader but Tapastic is better than both of those put together. I get to read free professional quality indie comics everyday. I can leave comments for the creators, chat with other readers, or browse for new comics whenever I want. Their comic selection is huge; including everything from web comics to graphic novels to manga.The app is fast, easy to use and has a nicely organized layout. I love it.

Bruno Carvalho

So much better than the older version I stopped using the old version because it was clunky and slow, I would just see tapastic in the browser in phone where the experience felt better. This new version is awesome, and works perfectly. I won't give 5 stars though because I still can't see the premium comics with it.

Ess Kay

Can't get in Has frozen on login every time but one that I've tried to access it. Especially annoying due to 'use our app' pop-up ads on every other version of the site. - HTC one m8 user

Joshua Koster

So far so good Everything I have do so far on it works well. Also there are a lot of comics may take a while to get trough to decide what to read

Damian Sanchez

Great concept but buggy & incomplete Love the website and the social network aspect of tapastic. Love discovering new webcomic artists, different genres, and varying art styles. Some important features are missing, like ability to rate a webcomic, (either entire series or individual panel,) and ability to zoom in/out, (hard to view some artwork on smartphone screens-looks great on tablets.)

Joseph Dufour

New app better-er then ever, update fixes any complaints and then some! This app is soooo much better then the old version. It now works very slick without crashing, and you can have more of the functionally found on the website then before. The most recent update has fixed my only complaint of not being able to toggle notifications. Even more recent updates have made this super duper awesome-er

Nivem Lie

Amaazinng This app allows me to have a healthy dose of comics every day. I love it! I hope I'll improve enough to one day be featured here :)

Rowan P

Always Improving I've been using this app since its release and it has come such a long way! It's my favorite way to read comics. Responsive development and staff makes it even better as time goes on.

NiDaa HaSsan

My new fun work space :D Its a great place to meet artist, meet people who share the same interest and better yet you can share your work and grow from their. ^-^

Constance M

Excellent I love Taptastic! Have found so many cool new comics to follow. If it wasn't for this app, I would never have found Awkward Yeti!

Lane Pick

Love it Unfortunately there are not enough stars to express my feeling, so 1,000,000 stars out of 5

David Dave

Awesome mobile app I've been reading tapastic for a while now and it's great to have a gorgeous and well built app.

Raito Yagami

Great Comic App!!! I like the tapastic app as how it is now. Everything is smooth and just fine with my device. Navigation is great and interface is simple and beautiful. 4-star for now. Would be perfect if we can access the forums directly in the app. Anyway thanks for all the hardwork!!! :))

Kazuro Gammaru

Yes!! nice we have an app!! Anyway sensei, how can i add a new episode? Thanks for the answer

Companion Cube

Rotation! Yussss! Thanks a lot! Tapastic really gets more and more awesome with every next update!

Юрий Апарин

Rotation Please, return ability to rotate view (comics rotating with device screen). It helps read small text!

Vorodot Tezlop

Greaaat! A lot of good comics from the best authors. Thanks

Пользователь Google

Nice but Fix crashing when app start (android 2.3)

Mishi Lee

Can't see premiums? I found the website first, and the first comic I subscribed to was a premium comic which I bought for $2. On the website, it's in my bookmarks, but on the app, I can't see it? I see other comics that I've bookmarked that aren't premium, but not Moonlight Hair: Part 1. I even went to the creators profile but they're series wasn't there. It doesn't seem like I can find ANY premium comics on the app. There's only Popular, Trending, Tapastic Picks, etc, but not a premium section like online. Help?

AJ Brown

Great start! This app is a great start, but could use some improvements. Some of this could be due to me accidentally looking over something, so please let me know! As someone who installed the app before finding the website, I was disappointed in the lack of profile editing via app. For example I cannot find a way to edit my photo, my username, or profile description. Also I'd suggest phone notifications for when comics your subscribed to update (not just comic snack).


What's new? For a while, I loved the interface of the app. Sorting by the newest in a genre let me see any potential hits. But, when I could no longer connect from an older version, I was forced to update and the loss of the "New by genre" option is a big loss. On the off chance they return this option, I'll give this app a 5/5, until then...

Von Vic Cayas

Great and Awesome app but.... I love this app so much. It's a great stress reliever to read these hilarious comics like "Cheer Up, Emo Kid" or "Fowl Language Comics". However the only thing that keeps this app from becoming perfect is that several times the app would have no internet connection and I would have to restart the app. This would only occur in this app and I would greatly appreciate it if you would fix that bug. But overall, everyone should install this app for it will turn your from upside down and all that jazz :)

Cynthia Ulysses

Its great but... I love this app but whenever I try to post comments or atleast put a picture up as my profile it won't let me I don't know what's wrong but fix it please ⊙▽⊙

Nel-Nel Robles

A Must for Lovers of Comics and Art I love the neat and easy to use interface of the app. The act of flipping to another page/chapter is never a hassle. In addition, the sections in the table of contents for every comic darkens whenever you've read it, which is a handy feature. I love the diversity of the comics and manga. The option of labeling certain chapters or pages of a comic as "NSFW" is useful. This app also gives readers an opportunity to support the authors and artists. Overall, this is an awesome and convenient app.

Bill Clyne

Great but... There is a recurring issue with some of the comics not loading, and by that I mean that the appellant can't read the image file, so just shows a blank box with a tiny little question mark in the centre. Only happens about 5% of the time, and reloading does not solve the issue.

Anushka Khatri

I can't sign up or log in through Facebook. Please fix the issue

Ericka Gumilan

Luv it! Now I can share to everybody my work thanks

Amelie B.

Wait what? I can't doing anything with my account, so I can't post comics. I really want to make one! Other than that, I really enjoy stuff like gamer cat.

Skylar Carnegie

How do you create comics I really want to know how to create comics to see how many people would like them!

Kyle Miller

Wonderful I absolutely love this app, the only suggestion I have is perhaps allowing swiping right and left to go forward and backwards through comics rather than up and down, but that's not a problem, just a idea :)

Pey June Tan

9GAG's Better Looking Cousin My everyday-go-to app for comic fixes. Love the collection of interesting artists of different styles. Some publishes short 4-panel stories, while others do huge stories in episodes.

Daja Harris-Gibbs

Love it!! I love the comics on here. Some of them are hilarious, and I laugh so much to were my stomach hurts. It works perfectly.

Danish Nadi

Error messages I keep getting alot of 'tapastic has stop' messages

Malena Rey Hipolito

Great app I live having all the comics at my fingertips, and it's so easy to find stuff! I am a big art fan, and this stuff is so cool! I would love it if I could make my own comic, but I'd how! Plz help!

Panda James

Cant sign up I cant sign up,it wont show the sign up button so i cant sign up


ALMOST perfect The only thing I wish you guys would add is message and comment notifications. And I wish my subscribed reads were the home page instead of five daily comics from series I don't read.

Jonah Marie Malik

Gutted Was really excited to sign up but cant do it. Sigh ???

Mirna Z

Great, but Crashes too much

Aaron Reed

Okay I can't make comics, why not Can't make comics or change profile picture, other than that its good

Michael Kurnia

Somehow all the comics i opened didn't showed up. At first i thought it was my connection that's slow. Waited for 20min and the image still not coming up

Amaris Waltho

i really enjoy the app but all i can say is that im a little annoyed and disappointed that theres nk search button so i cant easily search for comics. if there is actually a button it's reslly well hiden. it would be a really big help if you could add it back in or if its actually there fix the bug on the search button

Jamie Davidson poston

Don't be quick to Judge I've used the new version which before I didn't like because I wasn't used to the change but now I really like it, The design is really nice and I was too quick to judge.

Kina Wolf

Seriously? This is terrible! Gift coins? Really? And now novels? Just leave that for Kindle and stick with the regular comics. If the desktop version is like this, I'll probably delete my account. Also, the name was better as Tapastic; not Tapas. YEP!! DEFINITELY DELETING MY ACCOUNT! PEACE!! t(^-^t)

Tisha Johnson

Sigh I only just got the app a bit ago...I really enjoyed reading the daily comic snacks, and had been wondering why I no longer received them. I'm kinda upset that the coin system has been added as well...idk I haven't tried out the new update but the old system seemed perfectly fine to me and I quite enjoyed it too..

Lissie Cole

Now that the notification bug I saw is fixed I don't really have anything to complain about. Still a great app that I would recommend to my friends and the key system, while slightly annoying because I don't enjoy paying for anything, isn't something to really complain about. The key system is a great way for the developers to actually make money without having our feed filled with none stop ads. To the people who are complaining about the key system I'd like to remind you that we could easily have it worse


Terrible This new update is awful the app is so slow to load things now and it takes ages to go to another comic when all you want to see is the latest one. Why is the daily comics feed also gone that was an amazing way to find new creators. Also this app eats through battery massively on my phone when I'm only using this app. Until fixed 1 star

Cecilia Wang

Need a search function One time, i was reading a comic but forgot to save it in my bookmarks. And now i can't find it even though i know the name, which annoys me to no end. Please add the search function back, the previous version had one

Danny Eagle Cünt

Problems Theres some things I don't understand about this app. First off, in the app I can't search for certain comics but if I go to a browser to search, not only can I not open it in app, but I can't log in to my account. Which brings me to the second thing. I for bouillon some reason have an account without me making it that I can't change the password to. Please fix


Good but there's this one thing that I find annoying Can you have a setting to disable the Next Episode thingy on top of the Like, Comment and Share button? It just takes space when you're reading a comic and every time you scroll it appears and you have to tap the screen again to make it disappear. I still love this app though :D

iNfeRnO BigFire

Important Community Features Broken Hm. I can see there being potential in the new app, but it definitely needs to be worked on more. The coins are worrying, but if they're not abused they could be decent. One of the major downsides currently though is that there doesn't seem to be any way to conveniently get to my previous comments on comics to see if anyone has replied. Also, it seems I can no longer edit my own comments, or tap on someone's name in the comments to go to their profile and check out their comics.

Grace Payne

I don't like the new update I got the app because it was simple to go through, easy to read, etc. Now, it's nothing like that. What happened to automatically going to the next chapter with the touch of a button? Now, I need to exit the chapter, find the chapter, and wait for it to load. The app isn't fun to read on anymore

Jane Gestiada

I liked the old layout better Seriously, it took me a minute to get used to the old layout. The searching feature is gone...The daily comic snack is gone. You now have to pay to read some comics? If its not what it is then Im sorry but adding coins make it seem like. The new layout just doesnt really work at least for me.

Rafael Rodriguez

Glad i can see the new chapters at the top of my library again Glad that they are taking the feedback into consideration. Now my only complaint is that i can not go to the new chapter instantly when i see that the comic is now but rather it sends me to the page before it.

Abigail Chamberlain

Needs a lot of work So I was fine with it at first. I thought that the layout was OK and the bookmarks tab was nice. However, I found that the everything began to unravel upon finding that this update has taken away our ability to search comics. I am extremely disappointed.

Jeanne U.

It's not as bad as the other reviews says it is Tbh I was a bit apprehensive of the app when I had read the reviews whilst updating but since I love Tapastic a lot I decided to try and see what its like anyway. I miss the old layout and hope to see my daily comics again someday (reading the daily comics was the favorite part of my day tbh). The new update isnt terrible guys. It's not perfect but it's not all that bad either. P.S. Tapas reminds me if tapa which is a breakfast dish of sorts in my country :)))

Shafi Babar

Best thing for comic lovers Have been using the app for looooooong and the updates and layout are also good. Just noticed one thing after the latest update. When you open a comic the bar at the top hides part of your comic. Please fix this as the bar can some times cover the comic text.

Nathan DeMaria

Broke the app I'm getting an error message saying Attempt to invoke virtual method '' on a null object reference ' not sure what that all means, but I can no longer open the app. Hope that helps. Hope you guys get all the errors figured out. Seems like a rocky update, but I'm looking forward to giving you 5 stars when you sort it all out. Edit: error was fixed! Works great now! Thanks a lot for fixing that.

Maya Miller

I'm so happy! I'm glad you changed the set up so now its easier to find my favorite comics. I'm also very happy about some little peeves of mine you got rid of in the new update. But you should have a search bar so I can find all my favorite comics I lost when I made a new account few months back. There are still many comics I love that I can't read because I can't find them. Anyways I love the new update and hope it improves even more.

Autymn Maas

Still weird, but improving (New version 3/30/16) They listened and fixed the sorting. I am still annoyed at the key thing. (Old version 3/24/16) I have updated and though this new version is pretty, I'm lost. No comic snacks, Only 2 chapters of a new comic, stupid floating 6 won't go away, scrolling no longer make sense (I liked the idea of scrolling down! ), and my comics are in a weird order. Did you guys ignore user feedback completely?

Riseul S

Want tapastic back I like the new version, it looks great but there's something that I don't want from it. First, the app became glitchy, it often crashes whenever I read comics and it also became laggy. Second, I liked the old version more because the comics on my library with updates are at the top and are easy to find unlike how it's scattered now. Third, i miss the daily comic snack. Tapastic is one of the apps that I love and I hope it will make more changes according to our reviews. (PS sorry for my bad english)

luismi va

Where are the daily comics??? D: Where?? And also I liked Tapastic more than tapas too D: but the important thing is... will the daily comic be back someday? ...Well maybe am the only one who liked to see different comics daily ;_;

Neo Yulin

- I got to know Tapastic via the author of Erma, and honestly I only planned on reading Erma when I first started on this app. But Daily Comic Snacks is the special thing about Tapastic before the current update that let readers find out about more authors and their comics, and that's what I really liked about Tapastic. It introduced me to genres that I've never explored, and I learnt to appreciate them. The new update isn't all that bad, but if possible, I would really love to have Daily Comic Snacks back.?

Vincenzo Lantis

Problems solved! The UI is fixed! Yay! I'm all for Tapastic branching out in media. I'll be starting my webcomic here in about 4 months and this kind of user friendly-ness and welcoming user base is exactly why I chose it. And the branching media gives a lot more people opportunities to tell some really cool stories.

John Karam

Great app and helpful developers Awesome app. And thanks for developpers for their help and support. The app is great. Everyone should have it.

C Jing Ying

New update Would like it if there was an option to view subscribed stuff in 'List' view, aka the old way. Also tapping updated subscribed should bring us to the latest update, like last time. Not too sure how these coins work yet, but they seem a bit pay to view, and if they are that would be very annoying. Damaging to the artists as well since they chose to put their art on a free platform and expect to get the viewership that warrants. Making the app pay to view(and pay to who? Artists? Tapas?) Could be bad.

Milo B

With the update, It feels wrong now. It would have been better for them to make a separate novel app, because tapastic has lost its charm and uniqeness. "Tapas" crashes a lot, many people seem to dislike it, the novels will make the app more watt-pad-esque and nobody will take it seriously. I know the developers probably never read these reviews, but they should really listen to the fans and consider going back to the old system. T̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶i̶s̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶e̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶b̶a̶r̶ ̶n̶o̶w̶ (nvm).

Immortal X

Why are others whining? I don't quite understand what others are complaining about. The update is fine, it's really cool. The loading on pages are way faster and using the app is simple. I don't care much for the coin thing though. The developers of the apps did a nice job, I'm okay with this update.

Melody Wai

Good but could have a fix I love reading comics on this app, I really do. But when certain comics are not that long and the top bar covers the top 2 panels of the comic (and I can't get rid of it), I feel like I've missed a part of the comic, even if it wasn't significant. Please fix this. I'd like to be able to read all the panels without having to deal with something I can't do anything about.


The change is good! There's a lot to say about the changes but I'll try to sum it up shortly, the new app looks amazing, loading is fast and neat but there's two requests I have, could you bring back daily comic snack? And the second one, when I open a comic and try to move it lower to continue reading it, it immediately pops up the "drag to check the next episode" and it covers more than half of my screen so I can't avoid tapping it while scrolling down. If you could do something about it, it'd be great! Thanks for the app^^

Ethan Hammond

Extremely disappointed!! I used Taptastic before. When it was switched over to this new platform I lost all of my subscriptions. (Yes, I logged in with the same account). The app has no search capability (seriously?!?) So I can't find my previously subscribed comics, or find new comics that my friends tell me about. I love the addition of books, but NOT at the cost of functionality!

Sierra King

What's up with the titles? I've had this app for over a year and loved it, absolutely perfect. And while this new update isn't so bad, I don't like how in webtoons with a single page, the introduction title thing gets in the way and I can't read the top couple centimeters of the page on my already small screen. I can't read the text portion or fully enjoy the comic. I'm keeping this app because I'm hooked on the comics, but I'm quickly becoming disillusioned by not being able to actually read them.

Domenique Castro

Hate the new update You guys why?! The old one was perfect and functional. This one would be functional if it didn't force close all the time and if it actually loaded something! The old one wasn't overcomplicated either, it feels like this one is way too busy. I really love tapastic but this update is absolutely horrible.

Francis Okuu

5 stars for previous version I find this venture towards books as interesting and so are coins (for supporting the artist or author maybe?) but I'm giving this new update 2 stars because of the lack of a search button in your android build! Overall though such an awesome app to look for new and popular comics. Edit: thanks for the heads up! Please bring back the dailies as well!

Kailyn Gregorash

I think I like it I was sad at first that they changed so much. It was already so awesome but I think adding novels as well as the new design will just make it a better app. I miss the daily comic snack though.

Tori Teague

The old layout was much better. At first, the new design didnt bother me. I saw a lot of people complaining about the coins and the books but as long as i could read comics, i didn’t mind the changes. But its getting harder and harder to navigate. For some insane reason, there is no longer a search bar which is horrible and makes it so much harder to find the comics I'm reading. And the daily comic feed was really helpful in finding new comics. The categories make it a little easier to navigate but the old version had them too.

Sam Stroyeck

Change It Back The new layout looks visually appealing, but is very confusing and difficult to navigate. And what happened to the Daily Comic Snack? That was one of the best things about the old version, and now it's gone. Also, we don't need books. I made an account for comics and it's easiness to navigate, not "coins" and books. It was better when it was Tapastic, not Tapas.

Lynn Xu

What was wrong with the old app? I hate to jump on the sadwagon but there are a few issues: I can't view how many subscribers I have anymore (huge motivator to keep updating!), there's an upload button but it doesn't work, and yeah I liked the way it looked a bit "indie" before, and daily comic snacks was amazing. Why fix what isn't broken? Now it just looks kinda cold, pros-only and uninviting. Appreciate the effort you guys put into developing it to look all shiny and new though

Jerry Scander

Don't hate change! The update is definitely an improvement and the UI is comprehensive and looks great. The old app could get irritating to navigate and this is certainly better. The only thing I really have against this is the name change. Tapastic was better in my opinion and Tapas just sounds strange. Live the development team and hope to see more from them in the future!

Hannah Tervo

I miss the old Tapastic :< The new stuff is nice and all, but there are a lot of the features that I miss. And icons take like 10 minutes to load. If this doesn't continue to improve, then I'm just gonna delete it. Sorry to say that, since I've been a user for a really long time. And I don't understand the whole book thing. It kind of takes the light away from the webcomics, which is what I think Tapastic was about.


Bookmark page is messing up. Sometimes when I read something that's been updated when I go back to my bookmarks list it will say I have none. That I don't really care about because they pop back if I try scrolling. But usually even if I do that my bookmarks that aren't updated disappear making me have to restart the app every time I want to go reread something.

Samuel Martinez

Slow I would give it 5 star again if you please make the loading times faster.this app is perfrct for anyone who loves random stories.but please make it load faster

Anoja Parameswaran

Amazing app The comics I've read so far are amazing and I think the key system is a wonderful idea. Anyone with a problem with it has to realize that some, if not all, of these creators do this for a living. You can't expect to just get it all for free, they need and deserve something for all the hard work that they do. So please stop complaining if you're expecting things for free because that's literally not how the world works

holly osterhoudt

nvm, its doing it again. i notice it only happens when ppl update their comics then go back to bookmark after reading.

Ellis Johnson

Nice except with the newest update, after reading a comic I've bookmarked and going back out to my other bookmarked comics, none appear. Only exiting and opening the app fixes this

Jess Capri

Still not used to it + glitches Why give coins? I apparently need keys. There's nowhere on my app to turn coins into keys. My coins keep expiring as they're useless to me. ALSO now my unread comics list disappears after i read one updated comic.

John Miller

Locked answered How are locked comics determined, do they need to have so many panels equal from webtoon to webtoon? I am concerned from a value to money perspective, I unlock one and it has 20 panels and would I unlock another only to get 10? *** Thanks for the answers, I will be buying coins in the future.

Nasif Quadir

Found an annoying error but love the app When I hit the back button from a comic page to go to my bookmarks section, I only get a white page. I have to restart the app to get my bookmarks. Apart from that, I'm very happy with Tapas.

Lue Chan

It's almost perfect Everything's great, except for the fact that the app crashes if you don't give it enough time to load. Also, it would be nice if we could view and edit our profiles.

jenaya doolan

Its a wonderful app but right now when I open it, it just opens up blank and I don't know why...

Deer Slater

So very love it Very great comics apps

Jay Hay

... only problem is the crashes

joe marino

Dont download this. Used to be a really good source of webcomics. But they sold out and are charging for access to content through a "key" system. Shame that corporate greed ruined such a good app. I'm un-installing it, RIP taptastic.

Grace Payne

Keys, books, new name? Seriously? I got this app for comics that I can't find anywhere else. I want to know, why are there keys, why there are now books for a comic app, and...what's with the new name. I can't even show this app to my friends who want to read it, because I search up the name, and all there is, is Mexican recipes. The old name was unique, and I loved it. Now whenever I talk about it, people get more confused because they think I'm talking about a Mexican dish.

Gin 285

Have some major problems So after the new update, I barely use this app anymore. The reason why? Well, while I absolutely love the theme and background and what not, I abhor the fact that it takes forever to load. By this I mean it usually takes a few minutes to load an episode and I don't have that kind of patience. It wasn't a problem before this becomes Tapas and my internet connection is fine. It's sad because I used to love this app, what with its offer of fantastic comic.

Joan Liew

New formatting Omg the new version looks INCREDIBLE!!! It's a pity you changed the name into Tapas cause I really liked the name Tapastic better.

Jenn T

Not terrible They've fixed a lot of what what they broke when they became Tapas, and added back search. There are still a ton of great comics. The books seem like a poor fit with the app (not to mention there are better book apps), but are easy to ignore. The keys and coins are obnoxious, but again, they only lock out some content & are avoidable. I still miss the daily comic snack. It was a nicer system to finding new comics than what they have now.

Mynameis chipmunk

Please fix a problem I'm having. Tapastic just shut down a lot of times saying there's an error. And my phone wants me to delete it but i didn't yet cause i like Tapastic! Can you please fix this problem?

Bloody Anime Rose Skull

Post updated #5 No daily comics. Nice touch on adding a book section, for me I'll probably not go on it, comics for life. I think it's cool that the developers reply to commits. Can you add a notification setting where you can turn off or on where it goes to your gmail or email cause every time a comic updates I hear a buzzing than a notification about my gmail new episode of whatever it's really annoying if you add that the rating is definitely going to be "love it". Tapas got way better than Taptastic.

Nel-Nel Robles

New Tapastic... I'm so done. I'm pretty much done with this app. It annoys me so much that the creators give out free coins yet never send a notification to the phone itself that the user has been given such a prize. Then, the coins expire. It annoys me way too much. The layout is so different and harder to navigate. Although I like that the app has novels now, the novels need to be more polished and better editors. I am unistalling this app. I have lost all interest.

Alaina Pomeroy

Wow, actually listened to So I complained that there wasn't any way to search for a title, and around three weeks later the team fixed it and sent me a message thanking ME for complaining. And my review was actually pretty mean, so for them to handle it like this is really cool. Anyway, the app has a really nice set-up now, and with such a cool workforce behind it I'd recommend this to anyone! It's super easy to search for things, to bookmark them, and to flip to the next page or update! Thanks tapas team for your hard work! ?

Ivan Castillo

I'm hungry I love Tapastic ( or Tapas as it is now) been a long time fan and found some incredible artists and creators here. It supports a community that really needs it, and I love the new updates but this app has left me starving. I'm of course am talking about the Daily Snack, it's a really shame that the feature is gone, for it was a big help spreading the lesser known gems Tapas has to offer and also gave (me) a reason to come back more frequently and support fellow creators. Aside from that, Tapas is great!

Travis Wolfenberger

Good, could be better A "titles like this"/"because you've read" section would be nice to see, but I don't know how resource intensive that is so it's not a huge deal. Came across a comic locked behind Keys, which require the in-app currency Coins. I assume this division allows for an easier split of income between the dev and authors. Requiring one key per issue of a comic seems excessive given the price of coins and keys, but that seems to be up to the author and not the devs so I'm not going to ding the app rating for it.


EDIT:problems fixed :D I already loved this app. The update made go a bit off though. But I can see that the tapastic team is really working hard on the new update! The fresh button and the search buttons are back which is great. Now the fresh button is a bit less accessible though, but it's there , and I'm ok with that. I still miss the daily comic snack but aside from that, this is a very good app !!

Mackenzie Nagy

It's good (Updated) can we have the daily comic snacks back? That was my favorite part of the app before it updated.

-Emi -

Is it just me but the app keeps crashing on my S6 it there any way to fix this I really love this app

jak broverse

AMAZING The only thing I is going to say that this app completed my life it actually encouraged me to make my own comics about my interesting life but that's the best part. If your a drawing good or not and you have tumbler, and deviantart or any type of website that you able to publish stuff this is app is a really good idea for ideas but don't copy style just use your own. BTW get the app ?????

iNfeRnO BigFire

Important Community Features Mostly Fixed Hm. I can see there being potential in the new app, but it needs to be worked on a bit more. The coins are worrying, but if they're not abused they could be decent. Also, it seems I can no longer edit my own comments. (Edited because they fixed a bunch of the issues since the original review.)

Kristopher Ivey

The only problem I have with the new design is that the search feature seems to be missing.

Jose Cervantes

If the search is there, then I am satisfied with this update. Thank you for your hard work :D

Tyler Young

Tapas The new update is great, more modern, simple and now has search! This is the only awesome comic app I came across and probably is the best comic app on Google Play. Thanks Tapas Media Inc for making this awesome app.

Milo B

The update is actually pretty cool! I was more than a bit critical of the new update at first, but the system is actually better than the old app. The search engine searches tags instead of just titles, and the category sorting is very useful. There's also a few other cool things but I'm not sure how to describe them.

N Junk

Bought comics missing Are keys temporary unlocks or something? I unlocked some chapters in a series with keys, then weeks later got more keys, went back to the series, but the chapters I unlocked are locked again. What the hell, trying to make me pay more than once?

Monique Mckenzie

Tapastic return (3/29/16)Please return tapastic back i don't like this update or at least put search button back and where you can view your own profile and how you originally had the library looking(New update as of 4/28/16-like the search button being back now thank you)

Regan McCullough

Search works Smooth reading ui, can search to find comics, share and bookmark.

Diddly Dana

Update (Edited Review) It looks very nice and clean, which I like a lot, and adding books I was sceptical about but it's a nice feature. I got a reply very quickly on my review before complaining about certain things, so thanks for that! The app is good and I'm glad to see how things will progress from here.

Kyle Kro

My favorite place for comics! This app is really amazing! It flows easily and has the best interface I've seen. So far, I've enjoyed the big update. I'm a little disappointed it's not called Tapastic anymore but that's pretty minor.

Skylar Nguyen

Absolutely love these comics However... the daily snacks are not as fun to look through anymore since it's in the messages. I'd prefer to scroll down and read the comics like in the previous version of tapas. The key system is also odd to me. The mail you get is basically spam in the end as I'm thinking that I'm not the only one who ignore them. Lastly, when you're on the page of a comic with all the chapters, it sets you automatically close to the update but not the update chapter. You have to scroll to get it.

Joshua Koster

Back to being great. Back to being a great comic app. Looks like you fixed all the bugs and the daily snack is back. Two extra suggestions but does not hurt the ratting with thes. First the Comics/books that are "free to read" but still require keys to unlock the whole thing would be nice to have the free key break down at the top so you know how long a comic will take to get through. The second thing is to have a way to bookmark a comic/book as something you want to read but do not have time for right when found

Kelly Scheffer

Love this app Been using it for a while and still love it! But am annoyed with this key feature thing, several crashes still happening, and when I try to back out of a comic the whole app closes.... Still gonna use it but is rather annoying.

Furkan Ibili

Its been more than a couole months still too many random crashes I dont remember when you changed app's name to tapas but since then i kept getting crashes half of the time i used the app. Its just an update because im still having issues with crashes a lot.

holly osterhoudt

thanks for fixing the categories.

John Feely

Music Industry Executive Gives people easy access to new comic books

Hồng Phúc Hoàng

Getting better, but still crashing constantly

Karan Cincheuri

Awesome! Totally addicted!!!

Micah Roberts

Love the app, just a few little tweaks I really enjoy using the app, but adding some sort of activity tab,the way it is on desktop would be extremely helpful. The free coins are also an inconvenience, they expire before I can save enough of them to purchase any keys. Making URLs and links to other Tapastic episodes into hyperlinks would be really nice as well. Other than that, I can't complain, everything else is awesome!

Darrien Quinn

Great, but the coins... I've never been a person to spend every coin I earn right away. I like to save so when I find something I really enjoy I can spend it and know its meaningful. Unfortunately, I can't spend the coins in the alloted time and when I finally find something I want my 1000 free coins have expired. It's almost teasing. I really love these stories, but I can't access them because of my quirk. I would honestly give this five stars if my coins would stop expiring before I can use them. Otherwise, it's great.

Kate S

great free content & convenient bc it's mobile but... I liked the old tapastic app better; it made more sense and was simpler with less navigation required to get where I needed to go. now it feels like extra advertisement for the "locked" comics that require coins and keys. I'm not using tapastic for those comics or for the written stories (which also require keys every time I've looked at one); it just feels cluttered now. the app is also crashing in a bunch of places, from simply loading a comic update to looking through comic categories to making comments.

Amelia Shaw

Crashing all the time Every time I do anything this app always crashes however I did give it two stars because this seems like a good app without the crashing

Melissa Cockman

I'm having a lot of trouble with this app. It crashes a lot, often when I tap on a series or try to view a category to discover new comics, so it's only really useful for reading the comics I'm already subscribed to. It's very easy to read comics on this app, but doing anything else on it is not excellent. Considering Tapastic is supposed to be all about reading and exploring comics on your phone, the app doesn't really make that very easy when it crashes with every other command.

Alyx Williams

Crashing I love this app but it crashes SO much. When I try to view categories. When I try to do daily snack. It is also vrry slow whwn a,tually viewing comics and loading them. Even clicking on comocs can makw the app crash. Kinda disappointed/: I'm honestly just going to have to delete it and just the website instead.

Marco Licandro

Usually good, now completely broken Usually this app is really good, but at this very moment is seriously broken. It has been weeks now, with the last update, the app crashes continuously, both using notifications or tapping into a comic. My advice: avoid it and use the website instead until the devs will come back with a fixing update. I'll then change my review as well.

Sarah Tachibana

I want to become a loyal reader, but... Guys. Your app is too slow to load comic pages. I don't know what your backend looks like but it is in some desperate need of optimization. As a stopgap measure, if you can't improve the speed right away, my strong suggestion is to add a visual loading indicator for the user. Come on--this is basic UI ettiquette. Users should never be made to wait upwards of three seconds without a visual loading indication. This golden rule is not a new one, and it's even more relevant these days.

Drake Hottinger

Although the coins seem highly overrated. I enjoy having my favorite comics at my fingertips.

Krisel Fantasy

More free keys and coins I love the app, like really loveee, i just wish there was a way to earn or recieve keys or coins daily by idk completeing some kinda task or reading an unknown work or something

Anime Cave Cat

Amazing but needs a way to create stories I love to use Tapas to read my favorite webcomics and to read novels/stories but I wouldn't mind the choice to be able to publish my own stories. Through the phone app I cannot figure out if there is even a way for me to do that.

Jolie Delano

This app is wonderful, I am now an absolute fan. The stories are awesome and I love how simple the app works

A Google User

Pretty good update! However... I prefer the old daily comic snack layout to the new one.

Blubber the Walrus

I deleted and reinstall the app and the fresh and trending categories are the ones that keep crashing.

Joseph Renzi

5/7 Good free content. Can't beat that.

JC Japzon

I am one of the many readers of this site, and it's great to see it in app form! Although, there are a few things I would suggest adding, like being able to see notifications, and premium comics you bought. If these were applied to this app, I would rate 5/5! Love it so far! Oh an one more thing, PLEASE fix the interface! We really don't like how it changed, because it gives extra work to do simple things! 7/13/16 EDIT: The interface looks awesome, and is pretty easy to use! Awesome!

Alex vs. World

I used to love it I used to love this app and loved the comics, but now the key system.... It's just so stupid. I don't want to use keys to risk reading a comic that I have no idea what it will be like. I don't really want to use the keys at all. The app was just so much better before this whole update... Please change it back, or something.

Mark Lukens

I'm really unhappy with the new app design. Horizontal mode is apparently no longer supported, which is a serious problem for me, since I read on a 12" tablet, & would now have to hold the tablet on end to view the comics. You used to be able to use it in either horizontal or vertical mode, like most book & comic-viewing apps, but now you can't switch to horizontal mode, making it impossible to use on large tablets and notebooks. I can live with most of the other changes, but this is a deal-breaker for me.., Three months later, and still broken and unusable for tablet users.

Anasta Trn

some suggestions Like someone else said, being able to switch from horizontal/vertical is always good. There are also some comics that include links or have music playing, so I wonder if it's possible to enable those in an update? Otherwise, friendly interface and fun to use.

Reggie Schildmeijer

It's been improved, but seriously guys. I don't need a message in my inbox every day with a "daily snack". I can turn off the notification, but the annoying message is still in my app.


Constant Crashing I love Tapas. I've used it for years and I even intend to be content creator on it.. Unfortunately, the app constantly crashes for myself. If I leave the app too long (let's say, to answer an email), it crashes upon going back. Or if I read for 40 or so minutes, it crashes. And occasionally going through my bookmarks... I have a lot, and while scrolling down, sometimes it repeats itself. Usually leading to it crashing. Again, I love Tapas... I just hope this issue gets resolved.

Pranab Ranjanmandal

Bad application and it's services No offline reading mode. Too slow to load and data-eating demon. I am so sad. Wattpad and comix application are better than this.....

Jess Capri

Reinstated daily snack!! Guys. You have really worked hard to improve this since restarting as Tapas. Very commendable. Phenomenal work. I still have a bit of trouble finding new comics, but the daily snack is back -- it helped me find most of the comics I now don't know how I lived without! ?❤❤❤❤

ricardo martinez

Great place to find art The Tapas app is great. It's organized, works well, and is easy to use. The community is also one of the friendliest you'll find. The Daily Snack makes it easy to find new comics and the categories in the comic or story sections allow you to search more specifically if you're looking for even more things to read.

Priyansh Agrahari

Well... There are random freezing cases which only get solved by leaving the device alone for a few minutes or so... Except this, the whole app is great! Keep up the good work!

Ivan Castillo

YES! SNACKS ARE BACK Now that the daily snack is back, I retract my previous review and give Tapas a perfect 10/10. My favorite app of all time. Will Continue to support such a awesome community of creators and artists

Pastel Paintbucket

Wonderful, but... Its an awesome app and i love to see all these amazing things that people have created, but i cant publish on here.. i really wanted to but apparently i need an agent and a be a professional.... thats my fault though so i wont rate the app lower for something that is my problem.

NighFreak Freaker

remove update? I am addicted to tapas and I use it everyday. but the new clock icon is really annoying and it was instant regret the moment I opened the app after updating. how can I downgrade it to the previous version? I hate the clocks they discourage me from using tapas

Panda Pandi

Nice I really really like this app and all its content and the way it's organized, but I would defiantly add the "off-line" reading option :( I often have to spend a lot of time without Internet connection and it would be awesome if I could use the app even when I'm out without wifi. But even tho the app doesn't have te option, it's still a solid 5 ★!~

Khalida Mutia

Easy and adicted To anyone who love reading this app absolutely adorable, probably it will be an e-library that nerd shall downloaded.

Gwyneth Camacho

Tapastastic! It's physically the best comic app. That's all I can say :)

DArren Emmanuel

Need forum support As an author/artist here, one of the best ways to network and keep up to date with the community is through the forums. I'd love to see this app have forum support in its next update. Every time I go to the forum in my browser and try to log in, it defaults to the app and I'm stuck. Sometimes I want to respond to things right away not hours later when I get home.

Justin Milligan

They don't give you enough coins or keys They have plenty of books and comics to choose from, but the stupid "individual keys" thing makes it impossible to actually finish any stories. they hardly ever give you keys, and when they do its like 1 or 2 for ONE COMIC. Huge hassle. Would've been 2 stars but the comics are actually pretty good. Also, the "free key" option glitches or something, I never get my keys.

Grace Payne

Wait time The wait time for getting keys doesn't decrease. I find that annoying and sort of unfair. I feel like the wait time should decrease every two days.

Kelz K

Crashes a lot I would give 5 if it didnt crash so frequently please try to fix thx

Ren Lunarix

Awesome I'm very happy that they bring back the top five comics daily. But kinda sad there was a limitation to read some comics by using keys. Overall it was still awesome

Rayna F.

Awesome Love reading books on here. Very original artists. Only wish everything was free but I know that's wishful thinking because artists need to earn money.

Evrclr Johnson

I love It There are many choices to choose from. Books and comics different varieties. I'm just lost for words for this app

holly osterhoudt

nvm. it think its the weather messing up my phone service.

- Kwek -

Puts together most webcomics I follow. Just needs a "mark all/delete all" option in the messages. An in-app clear cache would also be fantastic.

nick watkins

AWESOME Love the variety and the awesome artwork great stories Favorite is Undead King

Essie Adelanwa

After the new updates I just thought why not give the Tapas team 5 stars for their dedication to always improve the Tapas app. So here you go! This app is awesome and you deserve this! ?

Botho Mothibedi

Awesome app but.... The app has AMA-zing comics to read but I just wish that we could download them so we can read them where there's no Internet :'(

Kole Rooney

Better now, but don't like the IAP I understand that the artists need to make money, but free coins should not expire, especially when you don't get enough to buy a key.

Annica Johannessen

What the hell is "766766" and why did I get a notification for something that seems to be nothing?

I love it so much This app has amazing comics

Kaiyana Harris

Incredible Im so in love with this app it has all of my favorite indie comics right at my finger tips.

Charles Hadden

Great Finally able to keep up with my comic from my mobile as well as others

Hao Do

Need read offline / stroll horizontal +

Good so far Had it for a few hours

special 100448

Funtastic What a joy when I found out about this app. I really love to read manga and manhwa and the quality of the works here are the best I have come upon so far. I had some issues with the coin purchasing recently but the creators of the app really helped me a lot and resolved the issue. I'm currently enjoying my coins and purchased some keys to unlock chapters. Paying for these wonderful works are acceptable to me. They all deserve to be paid for. Thanks for this app! I hope you add some more jn the future.

Love the app, just a few little tweaks I really enjoy using the app, but adding some sort of activity tab,the way it is on desktop would be extremely helpful. The free coins are also an inconvenience, they expire before I can save enough of them to purchase any keys. Making URLs and links to other Tapastic episodes into hyperlinks would be really nice as well. Other than that, I can't complain, everything else is awesome!

R Blackheart

Dissapointed Well this sucks. I thought i coulf find the stuff i already read, but i can't. Plus there is a pay to read system? Wow, bull. Thought it would be simpler and that i could read what i alreadyhad on my list online but no, nothing. Well that was not worth the download, it was easier with webtoons because it kept my stuff when i used the app,


Coins Okay, so, about three days ago I tried out the watch ads for coins system and for some reason I can't make anymore coins that way. I thought it might be a 24-hour wait but the button still won't come back! Any explanations? (Update) well, the button came back but it only let me watch one ad and then it disappeared.


Nice but can be improved.Thank you for allowing us to read stories /comics using our mobile phones. Its much more convenient and simple that way. However, I have been wanting to also publish my own stories /comics up too. But since this app is for -read only-, I am having difficulties with that. I think not only me, but many others will appreciate it alot if this app allows us to publish our own stories using our mobile phones. Of course, it will be a great bonus if one could draw the comics or write tye story just within the app and publish it so. Still one cannot be so greedy so.. Please do look into this issue and consider my proposal. Thank you.

Kat Iyriklaunavan Vogel

This is horrible There are so many things I hate about this update, I've been using this app for so long it use to be amazing but now this new update has destroyed it, it hard to use and very confusing! I liked how it used to be free and easy now its so confusing to move around the app!

Andy Larson

Pay to Read I like the app. The formatting is great and its nicely intuitive. However, i really dont appreciate the fact that i have to have 'keys' to continue reading certain chapters of things. I will not be using this app much because of this

Get this app Really love this app a lot. The only thing that I would want is if you would have a little thing showing me the ones that I have read recently. Webtoons has that and it really helps me keep track all of the things that I am.doing or the things that I forgot to subscribe to.

Aimee S

Black screen of doom.. Get black screens when loading epiaodes have to exit & reopen. Also would love to see creators walls again!

Sanie Dons

brilliant i love this app and i use it every day to keep up with all my webcomics!! i was just wondering if its possible to disable "daily snack" its a good feature and all, i just dont want it really. otherwise thanks for a great app xx

Tyler Young

Tapas The new update is great, more modern, simple and now has search! This app has a simple and fun design, and is easy to use. Maybe add sounds as I find that it's quite silent and that there is music on the Taptastic website. This is the only awesome comic app I came across and probably is the best comic app on Google Play. Thanks Tapas Media Inc for making this awesome app.

skylark kishi

I like it but... Sometimes when im using it it suddenly stops and wont respond so i have to close it again, it happens often can you please fix it??? Thank u

Saniya Singh

It could be better I know that the app can be made better. It is a bit slow and my internet speed is quite fast. Also I wish there was music like in the website. And a download option (not on the website). But I love new paid comics.

Jacob Rein

I love this app I really do! I love reading these comics, stories, all of it. But it starts to freeze my phone every now and then. I love the app and what's on it, but please fix this!
