  • Great!

    by Gshjrsghuoi

    I loved reading the series I'm sure I'll love this app!

  • Great App

    by zeralius

    Great app! I particulary enjoy this version more than print because of the "panel by panel" option. This option makes it easier to follow along and much more enjoyable experience reading to my five and three year old. And I don't mind paying for the quality that is BONE.

  • Good but bad:I

    by Lefty the Pirate

    "U have to bye it" indeed. Surely this is some sort of oversight on the part of the app creator. What other reason could there be to charge people to read comics? How could you do this to us? Why aren't these free like they SHOULD be? Why, the book that has ALL these comics costs $99 at a bookstore. By my calculations, that should make a digital copy on my iPad worth $0. This is outrageous. What is this, some kind of multiple-decade-spanning, award-winning, epic story with color artwork or something? And how DARE you make the app FREE and then have in-app purchases? I can't possibly be expected to infer such or read the store page. I am absolutely incensed. If you are going to CHARGE us hard-working iDevice owners for comics that should by all rights be FREE, then you should just charge us $110 for the app and include the issues, don't just inconsiderately allow us to buy one at a time according to our income levels/reading rates/etc. This is a sad world we inherit.

  • Fantastic App!

    by waywatcher

    Fantastic app and interface! An enjoyable way to experience the Bone comic series! POSITIVES: + ONE STAR for originality! + ONE STAR for quality of presentation! + ONE STAR for quick communication from the developers when I had questions! + ONE STAR because of ease in switching between portrait, landscape, and individual panels when viewing! + ONE STAR simply because it is a comic I love and enjoy (even more on my iPad)! Thank you! This is a great app with enjoyable content! I am very happy and satisfied, and am enjoying the Bone series in this new format! Kudos to the developers!!

  • Happy

    by PrudenteJY

    I'm very happy that they came out with this app. I love bone! I'm disappointed that they cost 1.99 per issue though, unlike the others apps were the issues were only 99cents. The format here is way better though. One thing that they should add is a section just for the comics you already bought, so you don't have to find them within the comics you haven't downloaded yet.
