iPad is the perfect gadget for reading manga, manhwa, and comic books, and MangaBlade is the perfect app for it.

MangaBlade combines three important elements for manga consumption: a user interface designed specifically for iPad, seamless integration with online manga catalogs, and the ability to import your own manga. It'll rock your world!


"If you enjoy manga and want a solid reader for it, MangaBlade is a good choice." - Chris Kirby, 148Apps (4/5 Stars)

5/5 stars

Looks good, crashes ALOT

App is booting nicely, looks great, but crashes ALOT. Whenever I try to add a manga or scroll through one, it crashes. Hope the devs fix this soon.

3/5 stars

Bad for now... Give it time to improve

Updated on 2011-Mar-11: it's better than when I first wrote the review... but still needs some improvement. I'll add another star for now, bringing it to 3 stars.

Original review on 2011-Dec-05:
I was drawn to the features of both an in-app downloaded and a manga library organizer/manager. No other iPad manga library app seems to have both, that I've been able to find. Unfortunately, this was a huge waste of money. It's one of the more expensive manga apps, and it suffers from two serious flaws: it's insanely S-L-O-W, and it is always crashing, even after I have restarted my iPad and all the other usual tricks.

The in-app downloader doesn't have a large collection of manga, but--the beauty of Manga Blade--it will automatically download any supported file type from ANY site using the built-in browser, and do it all in a background queue so that you can continue to browse and add to the queue. This, truly, was the selling point for me. But when I discovered that it crashes at least every other time I try to download from MangaTraders, it isn't a very useful feature.

Many of the buttons on the task bar are far too small and too close together. Even using a stylus, I often hit the wrong button. The developer should consider making those larger and farther apart, in HUDs, or anything but what they are. many of the buttons on the screen don't need to be there all the time, so it would be possible, in fact, to replace them with a gesture such as "swipe up for menu" or, perhaps, a single tap for a menu of commands like "reader", "queue", "browser", and "settings" as text buttons -- to replace the ones too close together in the top-left corner.

For now, I'll be switching to something else, but I am still hoping for this one to improve on these points. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered with this review.
