Terrible update
My god this is bad. Confusing, terrible to look at, and not functional at all. Why?! The main page is the worst. I used to be able to see every comic series I had, now? I see like three rows. And the grid or list view is worthless on the main page. I mean why must you change this app again. First it worked great, then they went insane and changed everything. We all complained, and they changed it up. That was great. Now we're back to this mess. Seriously thinking about switching back to print. So upset over this.

Terrible redo.
Being that we paid for this app we have no pull in the new redo. Boy they really messed this one up. Made it much harder to navigate. Took navigation and changed where you click to change old habits. Makes it difficult to move around. Can only pull the full comic by clicking on the art in list mode. what happens when i was used to using my right hand...now i have to use my left. Why change the basic ways of doing things? Why have this white background to hurt the eyes? Just terrible...hopefully my one star will let them know they really hurt a good product. I am now looking for a new one. If they ever change it back to the way it was I will go back up to 5 stars. Buyer beware for now....

New version not good
I agree with many of the other posts about using the new version. Mine doesn't crash, but is frustrating to use. Get rid of the giant white space that doesn't launch a book, but uselessly lets you change a title.

Loved old one, not so much the new one....
I'm okay with the UI. I loved the old version, specifically the filing system. Nice and neat. The new version filing system is horrible, hate having to swipe down to see all my series of books. Pls bring back the old filing system. Pls make it as an option in this new one.

Update has me looking for new App
Why anyone would choose to mess with something that so many previously enjoyed is beyond me. Previously, I was able to see mos tof the 30+ series of comics I carry with me at one time as the look of a comic box showing me just the first issue was a great idea. With the newest update, I can see at most 4-5 series and have to scroll to see the rest. It is quite cumbersome having to scroll through so many series, especially when you are not sure what you may be wanting to read that day. I travel a ton and so I carry maybe more comics than the average person for my trips but this change to a list or a grid view (which by the way looks the exact same), with a completely non-intuitive way to try and get to a particular comic in a series makes for sheer frustration. Not to mention, clicking a series to scroll through the comics in that "box"...don't bother trying to get back to the original list or grid view of all comics like you used to be able to with a quick click...it isn't happening anymore. Unfortunately the loss of the previous intuitiveness/simplicity of the App has me looking around and annoyed I paid what I did to have it changed to something that no one seems to have asked for.

Update not so good.
EDIT: Ended up re-installing the old version. Couldn't stand the update. Take that as you will. ************************************************************************************ List view is horrendous. I now need to scroll, what, 4 more times as often as I did before? If I miss-click I get a pop up asking to change the name of the series...talk about bad UI design. All my "Finished" is now gone, not that I can't keep it straight what I've read and what I haven't, but I'm sure I'll end up rereading some comics I have already. I'm also not sold on the color scheme, not saying the old one was good, just saying this one isn't better. I'd consider this update a downgrade over all, can't even label it as a side grade.
