IDW Publishing has released its new comic apps for Apple IOS today, and have announced Madefire as its app developer.
The complete line of IDW apps includes the premier IDW Comics app, which features the full IDW digital library, as well as the individual apps for some of IDW’s premier brands – TRANSFORMERS Comics, Star Trek Comics, and TMNT Comics.
As an incentive to get people to download and use the app, users that create a new account will get 15 free premium collected editions (roughly 80 single issues worth) to keep you reading for a while. The promotion doesn’t last long, you will need to get on board this deal before July 12th.
“The new partnership with Madefire allows us to expand to more and more devices,” said Jeff Webber, IDW’s VP of Digital Publishing & Business Development. “We are excited to be launching these apps now for Apple iOS, with Android and Windows 8 apps following very soon. And we aren’t stopping there! Later this year, IDW comics will be coming to TV screens and console game devices too!”
If you already have the IDW app, you probably already saw the app update, or if you auto updates turned on, the all-new all-updated IDW app is ready to go.
Users that have purchased comics in any of the previous IDW apps, as well as Madefire and comiXology, can sync their comic collections in the NEW apps with just a few quick steps. For more information on how to sync your previous purchases, click here: http://www.idwpublishing.com/app-faq/
