Web Comic Reader for Android


What was your inspiration for the game?

I got sick of always losing my place in the middle of reading Supermassive Black Hole A*, and wanted to create a simple Android app that automatically kept track of where I left off. I had some time to kill at the beach (yes I'm a giant nerd, but hey, other people bring books!), and this little application was born.

Did you run into any challenges while creating the game?

Feature creep. It started out as something very simple that just mapped domains to urls as you browsed. Then I added some error handling that redirected to google if you didn't enter a valid url. Then I added favicons, then came the ability to launch the app from other apps (the browser, or facebook, twitter, tumblr, whatever). Then came favorites and a history, eek!

Hopefully it's still simple enough to be useful!

Do you have any future plans for the game?

I plan on actually using it quite a bit, so who knows what other features will creep their way in!
