Was fantastic, now less so
The new update changed the overall presentation in a number of ays that are less useful and more intrusive. Empty folders take up an enormous amount of space-the same as a folder with contents-and just get in the way in a way they didn't when they were a single line. The progress line is too small to be useful on a folder, and it isn't clear what it means. When looking at comics in a folder, tapping on the great white space doesn't open the comic (most likely) but does edit the name (rarely used)-all that white space should be used for the main function. The main list is just harder to navigate since everything has been scaled up in size. When in a folder/box the back button and the home box button appear to do the same thing (in fact I'm not sure where they do something different).The per issue view looks nice in theory, but since it doesn't include the titles/numbers it's hard to make out what issue is next (if they were smaller and had the labels, great, and bigger would make it harder to scan-how about an option to scale the size and to show/hide titles?).Change name in the issue-specific gear menu is redundant due to the giant white space target to edit. And of course, I'd love just a regular line by line view at the top level so its easier to see what I have in my list (way too much scrolling now). So, while the actual reading is still great, the organization and manipulation of the collection has suffered enormously. There's some work to be done to restore the luster to what was the best reader around.

Fall from grace
CZeal was once was an amazing app. The ios7 redesign set this app back a few years. This app would be great if one had only 5 comic series. This app is now almost unusable for people with numerous books. The enormous icons now make you scroll and scroll and scroll to find the series you want. And the list view? Is the same size as the icon view?!? What's the purpose of that? Not to mention the numerous crashes when the app tries to display the thumbnails. Oh, and now when I try to load new books, certain ones just vanish into never never land from the slider.

So much potential
Love the function and concept, but wow... the interface is THE most complex that I've seen in any app I've used. I keep having to go back to help to figure things out! There MUST be some better way to surface the features... please explore options!

Love you guys
This app is amazing. One of the best comic book readers out there right now. But I miss the list view and I hope it comes back in a future update. Then this app will be perfect.
