eigoMANGA and Iconology Inc. have announced that eigoMANGA's comic titles are now available for the iPhone via the Comics by comiXology App, which is available on the iTunes Store.
The Comics by comiXology App is a digital comic store, library and reader for iPhone and iPod touch featuring Original English Language (OEL) manga from eigoMANGA in addition to over 100 titles available from twenty popular comic publishers and independent comic writers.
"The stunning display and innovative multi-touch user interface of iPhone and iPod touch have finally made comics appealing in a digital format," explained David Steinberger, CEO of Iconology, Inc. "By combining great comics with iPhone OS 3.0’s In-App Purchasing and location awareness features we are creating a revolution in the way comics are sold and read which could only happen with iPhone and iPod touch.
As we previously reported, Comics by comiXology offers a 'guided view' that keeps the entire page of a comic intact, unlike other solutions where the page is cut into individual pictures the user browses like a photo application. Comics by comiXology is a reader app that contains all a user’s comics and offers its own digital comics store that supports many eigoMANGA comic titles.
• The Comics by comiXology App is now available, including free eigoMANGA comic titles from the Rumble Pak and Sakura Pakk series, for $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
