New Version not Good!
I agree with the previous comment, the new version is a huge step back. I gave one star because this version is forcing me to look elsewhere for a new comic reader. In the previous version I preferred the Actual cover view. It was clean and easy to view collections of comics. This new view is an eye sore and you are unable to view all series at one time. Another missing feature would be an identifier for newly imported or unread comics. We no longer get a little number of unread comics in each series. :(

Everything in the new design is just off
For starters, everything is WAY too big on an iPad. I don't use the app on my phone, but god only knows how much screen real estate it's eating up. Secondly, they've totally thrown one-handed use out the window. I could live with the slightly larger lines in list mode, but now I can't select books while holding the iPad in my right hand when I'm standing on the train since a press anywhere on the HUGE line just goes to rename. For that matter, I can't go from a book to the list (switched from bottom-right to top-left) either. While I strongly preferred the wood-grain look of the old app, I'll get used to the look of this new UI - though it's far too bright for my liking. An option even to go red and black instead of the stark white would be appreciated. What I can't get used to is the lack of functionality. ComicZeal used to be a go-to recommendation - I've even gifted the app a few times - but until these "features" are fixed, I can hardly use it, let alone tell other to.

HATE the redesign
The title of this review pretty much says it all. What's wrong with the redesign? Just read the other reviews. PLEASE go back to the way it was before. It was perfect!

Great update make thumbs smaller tho!
Great update. Streamlined and simpler. Looks perfect with ios7. the new colors and look are a welcome change as the wooden background began to looked dated. Also the app is smarter now. The only thing i would change is the thumbnail size. I agree with everyone else it is too big. Add an option to reduce it by half and then by 75%. Make the default 50% what it is now. Other than that, I love it.

Hate the new downgrade
I can no longer open comics from within iFile. Your app is useless to me now.

Redesign is a disaster
I previously rated Comic Zeal a 5. The new design gets only 2 stars. It still works quite well as a reader, but the huge icons make it a very poor tool for organizing large collections. My folders and subfolders were nicely organized to allow for sorting through my collection without scrolling. The new icons make that impossible because the folders are huge and all look alike. I'm shopping for other options, but hoping Comic Zeal will make improvements to the current poor design.
