Less usable post-update
It's still a great comic reader app, and I'm not going to flame a one star just because I don't like the new look, but the new 'minimalist' style is a real triumph of useless form over primary function. Way too much white space, a lack of a simple 'list' view, the loss of the home button, the inability to customize... All elements of the app that were made worse post-update. The ability to revert to 'classic' mode would take this app right on back to the five stars it deserves.

Once great app
The look, design, and organization of this once great app has been devastated by the most recent version. This used to be my favorite app. Now it's an eyesore.

Love the new iOS 7 look.
I loved the functionality of the older version but wasn't too crazy about it's over designed UI. This new version fixes that. It is simple, sleek and gorgeous. The larger cover icons give more of an emphasis on the comics instead of the old wood paneling. This now looks modern and grown up. They best comic reader app just got better.

Too Big
The new divider bars and icons are just too big. I generally don't care about design changes, but since this change actually makes the app difficult to use (only 5 or 6 comics fit on a single screen in list view, destroying the ease of viewing and organizing collections) it's just too much. Do whatever you want with the color scheme, heck I'm all for following Apple's new aesthetics, but ya gotta give us a more compact view, so we can actually see many comics and dividers on screen at once. Easy organization is a key point of this app,or at least it used to be.

From Best to Worst
Version 5 was one of my favorite iPad apps; version 6 is ugly, functionally handicapped, and borderline unusable. Add to this the fact that the developer is being dismissive and confrontational on his support site. Time to find another comic reader.
