Excellent Solution for Alt Text

:
I love XKCD, but it's hard to enjoy in iPad RSS readers because there is no way to view the alt text, which usually augments and is sometimes crucial to the strip. This app is the perfect solution to that.

I have but a few qualms. The alt text disappears a few seconds after you invoke it. Although this seems to be a throwback to browser behavior, I wish that it would let me manually dismiss it because some of the longer ones require pressing the button two or three times to read them in their entirety.

The other nitpicky thing is that each strip seems to automatically zoom in or out to fill the horizontal space. While this is fantastic for the wider strips so that they are completely visible at one glance, this behavior causes the more squarish strips to default with a little too much zoom, causing them to be fuzzy, and in landscape mode, they often get cut off at the top or bottom. Like I said, it is definitely a very nitpicky thing because it only takes a single gesture to zoom out, but it would be icing on the cake for the default zoom to consider the height as well.

Unlike another commenter, I don't see the alt text for any strips getting limited to two lines. I've been able to see the entirety of the text for every strip I've viewed so far.

Overall, I really enjoy this app. The things I've mentioned are definitely not deal breakers in any way, but rather just criticisms about features that could make it even better.

2/5 stars

Features

:
There is no more shuffle, scroll from inside a comic or download all button

5/5 stars

Random button

:
some of the top reviews say there is no random button and that the alt text is limited to 2 lines. I just downloaded the app and i do have a shuffle button and the alt text is more than 2 lines, so they are wrong. Does everything i need it to.
