  1. Enable pinch-zoomout for mobile.

    Some comics, with large, or high def pages are almost impossible to read on a mobile device if you can't zoom out. The CR reader lets me pinch-zoom in on a page, but not out.

    • Allow a forum for conversations

      This is a place where readers can keep track of comics. Why not allow for this to be a hub where readers and creators can talk? And it can be split 3 ways: Reader/Readers, Reader/Creators, Creator/Creators

      • Fix the Redirects

        Two comics that I really like, Supernormal Step and Solstoria, do not work the same as other comics. Instead of showing me the webpage with the Comic Rocket controls at the top, it simply takes me to the corresponding page. This may be happening on other comics as well, but these are the only two I am aware of.

        • Android app needs to be more like the site

          Sorting by alphabetical is lame, but I guess it helps to find things. I prefer the site's sorting.

          Also the app opens all links in external browsers, not really optimal when it can be done in-app.

          • Offer an iPad app

            my iPad is one of my favourite devices to read comics on. I use the Comic Rocket website a lot on my iPad but it could be so much better as a native app.

            • Add a way to associated unkown pages with an existing serial.

              If I put in a link for a comic I'm already reading in the "Add to My Comics by URL:" box it may or not be able to add the comic. For example:

              We don't know anything about the page at http://fakecomic.com/latest-one yet. Maybe you'd like to add the serial you just came from?

              It would be awesome if there was a way to associated this URL with an existing comic kind of like the "it looks similar" message you get when you try to add a duplicate serial.

              • Have a button to fix broken comics

                Have a button to set your mark to the latest comic, instead of having to go to the site, figure out a few comics were taken down, re-mark your place, and so on.

                • Make it easier to mark a comic as read up to date when adding a new comic.

                  When I add a comic I have been reading, it is really difficult to get the bookmark to the last page; sometimes I have to click through 20 or so pages to get CR to the most up to date page. I should be able to move the mark to the most recent page with one click.

                  • Detect when pages use X-Frame-Options to forbid framing, and offer a link instead

                    Some pages, notably fanfiction.net, forbid framing using X-Frame-Options. Comic Rocket's crawler should notice this when crawling, and offer a slightly different viewer, which offers the usual navigation but replaces the iframe with a link to the page; I'd suggest making that page open in a new window by default, to keep the navigation around.

                    For extra credit, it might be possible to pop up the navigation and page in separate windows and have one navigate the other, though I'm not sure if that's actually possible.

                    • Have forum for "report a problem", so people know a problem has already been reported

                      I'm guessing there's a huge amount of spam under the "Report a Problem" button, and emails, as well as in the feedback area, simply because armies of people are reporting problems for the same comics so many times. Some kind of forum or SOMETHING so that a person can know if a problem has already been reported might help cut down on that, but still allow for people to say they're also having problems, or elaborate on the problem.

                      Also, admin/moderator feedback regarding a particular problem (if it's believed to be fixed or any sort of update at all) can…

                      • Recommend Feature

                        I sent this in but I'll make it public. It would be great to have a internal recommend feature. You have all the external shares, which is nice. But how about letting people write a short recommendation (maybe the length of a tweet or a bit more) for a comic? This can appear in a recommendation feed or something, and you can discover new comics via a personal recommendation. I know this is how I found many comics I love, by a friend telling me how much *they* love something.

                        • Android app needs new sort options

                          And so does the site, but it's weird how different they are.

                          Sometimes I like the alphabetical order thing, but I would usually go with the version on the site where it sorts by number of pages left.

                          The best idea: Allow both options on both versions.

                            • Have a dropdown menu to scroll quickly through a series' strips without paging through every single strip on the way.

                              Sometimes I have a comic in my bookmarks or someplace that was added to Comic Rocket, or I have a problem with my cookies (or accidentally hit "go to first"/"go to last"), or just want to check a comic in the archive for foreshadowing or whatever. In these instances, I want to scroll quickly through the comics' numbers (or numbers and URL, arranged in order of number) instead if having to page through everything to get there. This may only be a problem on the Android version. If a scroll menu is not an option, perhaps a numeric entry field…

                              • Bookmarklets for broken/blocked comics

                                For comics that are broken and/or whose owners don't want you indexing them - simply cut off prefix for the comic url and instead of indexing them, save the rest of the URL. Use a bookmarklet instead of the frame, and hit it when you're done reading, to bookmark your current spot. The authors/owners should have no objections - you're not stealing their traffic or modifying the website in any way.

                                  • Change source of comic (first page, second page urls)

                                    I have encountered a webcomic [1] that was previously hosted on an aggregator site. With this source, only 87 pages are available, while the new webpage currently is at page 245 [2]. I cannot seem to find a possibility to update the source of the webcomic other than creating a duplicate -- while the link to the comic can be updated, the links to first and second page, needed for scanning the comic, cannot.

                                    Please either
                                    1. allow changing "first page" / "second page" or
                                    2. Add the possibility to specify an alternate source for the comic.

                                    • Have a button to go to the next unread comic in another random serial.

                                      Maybe with the option to deselect certain comics from random selection so that I don't get fired for accidentally reading "Moon over June" at work.

                                      • Input page URLs manually

                                        The indexing system works amazingly well for most comics, but there are plenty out there, especially dead/finished comics, with weird and screwy numbering schemes that no indexer could hope to make sense of.
                                        I know a few comics that are too good to leave out, though, and I would be more than happy to input each page individually, just for the sake of sharing them.
