DIGITAL COMICS: ComiXology announces Read, Pause, Continue
ComiXology – the revolutionary digital comics platform available across the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 and the Web – introduces “Continue” a simple and easy automatic bookmark feature now available nearly platform-wide with this feature arriving on the Web soon. ComiXology users can now Continue reading their current comic at the same place they paused across the entire platform.
Continue solves the problem of losing your place while reading a comic across multiple devices. Now comiXology users can read their digital comics on the go with their mobile device – for instance, a phone – and then Continue from the exact same page on a different device – perhaps a tablet.
“This feature is another upgrade in a long line of innovations comiXology has brought to digital comics,” says comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “Our vision is to turn everyone, everywhere into a comics fan, and by creating the best user experience possible with features like comiXology Continue we’re doing just!”
In addition to Continue, comiXology is also debuting enhanced sharing tools. Previously only available at the end of a book or from the store, the new tools lets you share via Facebook, Twitter and email no matter where you are or what page you’re on.
