Reading Comics on the iPad

Download the New Go Comics App

Comics have always been availabe on the iPad through Mobile Safari but there was a lot of tapping and resizing in order to read them clearly. One of the largest collection of Comics appears on the Go Comics Website. The site is run by Uclick and they have recently come out with a new app that is formated for the iPad. If you like comics, this is a clean way to read some of your favorites.

The first thing to do is go to the App Store and search for “go comics”. It should appear on your screen and you can download the App. (This is a Free App)

This screen has 5 sections

  2. The next section is Slider Panel. This is where a few comics are shown
  3. The third section a green band, which is used to sign in or create an account. (This is free and when done allows you to pick and save the comics you would like to read often so you don’t have search every time)
