Yes, I worked with IOS and android from 2014 to 2018, and since 2019 I am working exclusively with Android.
Optimizations for older devices. The system and hardware of Android devices has evolved a lot in the last 5 years, and currently, our app works perfectly even in the most basic of devices, but it's still a challenge to make optimizations for smartphones with 5-6 years old.
Comic Rack, a very old comic book reader that was discontinued a long time ago. Of course, it’s totally outdated now, but its library system is still one of the best in the Play Store. It was the inspiration for Kuro Reader.
About 1,5 years (from May 2020).
A free comic reader, with a modern and functional interface, and totally ad-free.
What really differs our app from others is the user-friendly interface and its unique features. Kuro Reader has a rich library system for comics, with various grouping modes (Author, Series, Years, [...]), and support for favorites, and the creation of custom collections. The reader itself also has a lot of features, like bookmarks, table of contents, different reading modes (LTR, RTL, Webtoon), and others. And of course, the app supports all the most popular eComics formats: CBZ, CBR, CBT, CB7, Zip, [...].
We have a huge to-do list, but we're currently focusing on the features most requested by users. We'll be working to add more support for cloud/network-based file systems in the following months.
Send us your feedback and your suggestions on how to improve the app, we are listening to your suggestions and adding new features based on what is most requested. And share Kuro Reader with your friends!
