File limitations make this almost useless
I suppose this application would be worth having IF you have a small comic collection, but it appears that if you have more than a few hundred comics (or at least data more than 8GB or so) you won't be able to copy them in, no matter how much memory you have on your iPad (I have the 64GB iPad and even with nearly 40GB free I am bumping up against memory problems). It may be due to the way USB transfers work with apps -- unlike iTunes data transfer there appears to be some serious issues (many users have reported backup issues and other file problems with this app). If so, perhaps IOS5 will help, although the developer will most likely have to do some work. In the meantime I'd advise anyone with a large collection to forget about this and just use the free CloudReaders app -- it doesn't organize your comics the way this one does, but since you can't get your collection on the point is moot.

Terrible App for Sorting
Don't be fooled by the reviews for this expensive app. It is very difficult and time consuming to sort comics unless you have them named "[book] [issue]" The naming rules are pooly designed. I Also, the dispay window is very narrow (rather than landscape) so the books are hard to organize. For instance, if your books are names "[book] [issue] [title]" then the display pane will show: Green Arro . . . . unter's Moon" Green Arro . . . . unter's Moon" Designer needs to permit display in landscape format across the screen. This app needs many other improvements. You are better off getting the free app "CloudReaders". Even though that app has limited functionality, at least it doesn't cost $7. As it is, ComicZeal4 has very limited sorting options which will lead to hours of frustrating manual sorting tasks if you decided to use it. Continuing my review on 09/25/2011 after using this app now for a week. I can honestly say, NOT GOOD. I seriously question who is giving this version 5 stars. For the price, this app is terrible. I really hope version 5 is better. The comics are added through the "apps" section for your device in iTunes. Then there is an incredibly slow import time and the device will often crash or stall and has to be restarted. Also, very slow sync and backup times. This version is not good. I really hope version 5 is better.

Few updates and it'll be perfect
Fullscreen on iPad thru tv connection and/or AirPlay to allow comic viewing on a large screen. Honestly may be the only tweaks/update this app needs

Good app if u want to wait five hours to...
That's right, just downloading 20 comics on this Stupid app will take more than the rest of life! It takes wayyyy to long to even download files of 15 or more. Waste of money and bigger waste of time. Crap app. Fail!!!

The Best comic reader app
I have tried almost all of them and found this to be the best. Does not crash if you upload few 100 comics like the other paid app I tried. Also it cashes tumbs of comic for faster loading. Love the collection option and it does put the comics in the right collection automatically. In addition if the misses you have the option to do it manually as well.

Never works.
It crashes every single time I try to use it. I normally have to open it 4 or 5 times just to get it to work, only for it to force close halfway through an issue. Some comics won't even load and it freezes when I select them.
