Kuro Reader (cbz, cbr, cbt, cb7 reader) - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I worked with IOS and android from 2014 to 2018, and since 2019 I am working exclusively with Android.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

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.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

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 Of course, it’s totally outdated now, but its library system is still one of the best in the Play Store.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.

How long have you been working on this app?

About 1,5 years (from May 2020).

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

A free comic reader, with a modern and functional interface, and totally ad-free.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

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, [...].

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

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.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

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!
