Why you should contribute

It’s a fun experience and the perfect choice for learning objective-c and the iPhone API.
It’s semi-famous with over 10.000 downloads a month .
You have total control as the license gives you permission to fork your own code if you are not happy with my decisions.


Open Source

28 02 2010

The source code is finally released!

You can find the source code on github.  As long as you don’t make money on my code and also link to my webpage in your app, you are free to fork my code to make your own reader. My hope is that there will be more free iphone manga readers out there because of this.

I do of course welcome patches. If anyone want to help by adding features or fixing bugs I would be grateful.

New release uploaded to Cydia/Rock repo

15 02 2010

The new release ( has been uploaded to Cydia/Rock repo. As usual there is a 24 hour window between the release and the Rock/Cydia visibility.

As some of you (Screamjet and Ankoku) have hinted the following changes have been made:

  • Added a splash screen with the text LOADING
  • Favorites are no longer removed when clearing the offline data/cache
  • Able to see chapter titles of mangas with long names
  • Fixed bugs so that you can download mangas in the background
  • Shows an Activity Indicator (progress circle) when loading new pages
  • When downloading: shows number of downloaded pages in favorites

If you have already downloaded the deb manually then there is no need to install this version.

New version

13 02 2010

Sorry about the wait. I no longer have a wifi connection to test my program with and I don’t really dare relying on the iPhone simulator.

If anyone could download the latest version manually and test it I would be grateful! See the sidebar to the right for the new deb (or click here). Here are the instructions to install (there are plenty of other ways to install. Google is your friend).
