In advance of DC’s move to simultaneous digital and print release, comiXology has released version 3.0 of its software, which it says is a major improvement in many areas.
New features and benefits of 3.0 include:
Completely redesigned application
Near instant launching
Separate “Purchases” area that displays all owned comics
New series groupings in store and “My Comics”
Discover comics at much faster speeds
Pause and prioritize downloads
Improved “Instant Search”
Buy or continue reading the next issue at the end of a comic
This is a fairly big deal for the popular app — when we get back in AT&T service range, we might even give it a try.
