Great, except for iCloud Sync
Fantastic app! My only issue is that there is no way to deny this single app the ability to backup my issues to iCloud, which is a feature I do like, but after loading up a large number of issues to my iPhone, my iCloud storage was consumed instantly. I save the original issue copies locally as well, so I don't really need instant backups, and I would like to be able to manage my iCloud storage space more effectively. If there was a way to toggle the app from saving my issues from where they are now, /Documents, into a non-synced directory, /Library/Caches (hint to the developers :), I would definitely give this a solid 5 stars.

Best Available Comic Reader, But Not Perfect
First, let's address iPad 3 retina support. Images within the app natively support retina. The interface is still 1024x768 OG iPad style though. So, the important part automatically supports retina without an update. Comics scanned at higher than 1024x768 will display at full resolution. Text and high-contrast lines in hi-res scans are very obviously much sharper than 768p would allow. The variety of formats and the speed at which this app displays comics is fantastic. The flow from one issue directly in to another as you finish an issue is fantastic. The way the app collects similarly named comics in to boxes for you is fantastic. The human interaction with the app could use a lot of work. It simply just doesn't follow the standard iOS ways of interacting with books, and that is frustrating. Comic Zeal devs: Go look at iBooks. Go look at Stanza. That is how your app should handle flipping through pages. This weird "swipe only works in the middle and tap only works at the extreme edges" interface is unintuitive. There are great examples in place of how to handle page transitions. Go copy them.

Hands down
Best comic app on the market. Can't wait for future updates. And all the 1 star people are apparently too clueless to back up their comics or read th update notes. It was an overhaul and it made it go from the best to " no one can even touch it"

Not great
One of the reasons I bought this was because the description said it could import comics from DropBox — not really. It only supports reading files in a certain file formats, and not PDF. I'm stuck on a trip with just my iPad and a bunch of comics on my DropBox account. Guess I'm out of luck — or maybe IN luck, because I can send them right to iBooks from DropBox, which will also support the Retina display on my new iPad. CZ does not currently support the Retina display. I'll keep this app around because I expect an update will come at some point.
