Awesome XKCD Viewer I was about to make my own XKCD app because I don't like all of the popular ones. Then I found this one. Does everything I was going to implement. Great job.

Juho Juopperi

The best but has adds. Others don't Might actually be the most ergonomic xkcd viewer out there.

Marcelo Cerri

Simple and good It could cache for offline reading.

Natalie Price

Wish i could still use offline

Arturo Bruno Carrillo

Incredible fast! Great app my only comment is the shake for random enabled by default. First time was like: WTF!? Until i found out and disable it

Cullen Johnson

Great! But... Share button just shares the image. Not the link, meaning no alt-text jokes. Fix this and I'll give you 5 stars!

Woody Burns

Clean A clean and current looking ui to display one of the best web comics around. Good job, I was getting tired of using gingerbread style viewers.

Alan McLaughlin Jr.

Simple and effective. Does what it says and does it well.

Mick Topping

Works great, except... Just occasionally, like today, my Droid would not load the cartoon, just sticks on the heart. Still handy though.

Jaz DeWills

Notification issues Love this app! It makes viewing xkcd easy on my S3.

Jani Rounds

Does exactly what it should and no more!

Aaron Charles

Simple and easy to use but Resolution drops on zoom in. Hard to read the longer comics.

diana natalie

Like it Fun everywhere

Todor Mutafov

Some issues It's simple, and nice. It's better than the previous versions. It sends notifications on time, even when the comic isn't actually out yet. There's also still the capitalization problem in the settings view. You really should check the Android quality guidelines.

Aron Jones

The notifications are useless Taping on the daily notification this app sends does nothing. Why is it there all? Otherwise, the app does indeed let you view xkcd comics.

Will LaValley

Very fast updates I have been using this app for a while now and just today it started crashing on startup, the asp was fixed within just a few hours.

Dustin Engstrom

It works. I wish the notification would clear when I click on it.

Shrinivas Ramani

Decent app Real easy to use. Major gripe though: it often hangs for a minute or more before getting the pic - even on small images. To compare, the browser takes 3 seconds.

Dennis Rice

Great app! Works great! Only reason I don't five 5 stars is that when I click the notification to see the new comic, the notification itself doesn't go away. Otherwise, perfect.

Alex Mudar

Legal? Really elegant, but is it legal to make money (via advertising) from XKCD's work?

Jeff Roetman

Spam/popups? I hope this is just a bug, but when I opened the app today, it is redirecting (after the comic shows for about 3 seconds) to spam/popup-like websites. Not cool. Please fix! Edit: The problem seemed to resolve itself later in the day. I suspect that the sites that I was being redirected to were the sites that you go to when tapping the ad at the bottom of the screen.

Erasmus Louw

One small feature missing Brilliant app, only one that shares correctly to Google+. Only needs one small feature to be perfect, a random button. Please add that and I will be completely happy.

Hamish MacLeod

Simple, effective Notifies when a new comic is available, shows the alt text and has a link to the "explain xkcd" wiki.

Steven Smith

Single focused app This is actually an awesome app. It doesn't try to do too much.

Olajuwon Ogunsanwo

Good. But not perfect. Please allow browsing for Random Comics.

Jay Orellana

Perfect. Simple viewer for a great comic.

Eric Lucas

Thank you Gina Trapani at AAA Gina Trapani of All About Android on TWiToffered this up for the Arena. I missed the Alt Text, now it is HERE! Thanks so much. I have wasted so much time on the web, this just makes my time wasting more portable.

Gustavo Bittencourt

Great app Finally, I can read the *xkcd* on my Android without much effort. including its tooltips. The only problem I found is that the intriguing episode 1110 ("Click and Drag") doesn't work.

Alex Mason

Simple and smooth Easy to use and clean interface. Very nice. Does have ads though, so if that sort of thing bothers you, here's you're heads up... But they aren't a bother.

Nathan Seeley

Twit recommend Gina tripani of the twit show all about Android recommended this app on episode 99! It's a beautiful app! Love it!

James Eriksen

Yes! Thanks very much! Even has the 'explain me this' on the extras. Brilliant!

Isaac Cisneros

Love it! Simple and modern design. Just in harmony with my Gnex running Jelly Bean

Jeremiah Kroon

Good and they quickly fix any problems

Marc Riel

Great Tablet Viewer Ths is laid out perfect for tablets

Tomas Skäre

Nice design Clean, simple and really nice design. Many other xkcd viewers are using an old design, but this feels modern.

Jeff Best

Ad's enabled by default Ad's enabled by default = immediate uninstall.

Jay Orellana

Perfect. Simple viewer for a great comic.

Steve Martin

This is the best I've tried others but this one is simpler and I love that it notifies me when a new comic is posted. Get it now!

Lutfi Torla

Very elegant The best xkcd reader I've found yet. You can swipe to go to next / prev comic. Tap for title text. Very intuitive and clean design. I love it.
