If you try to do a bookmark after reading a few chapters; the bookmark ends up pointing to the wrong chapter. The URL doesn't update as you read. And your current progress doesn't seem to be stored anywhere.

Is there a way to add a manga to your queue so you know when there are new chapters?

Yeah. I wish that the manga worked the same way as videos did.
- Queue function for notifications
- Keep current position
- Mark chapters as read (like videos sort of get marked at watched)

The funny (sad?) thing is that unnofficial manga apps work that way. But so does the official CR video apps. So it's hardly an unreasonable expectation.

This... the "Illegal" manga readers are so much better because they allow you to easily bookmark where you left off, and as far as I can tell, there is no way to do this.

Allowing us to que the manga like we can videos would be so much nicer.

I can't even remember where I left off on uq holder to keep reading it. >.<

Not just the scanlation apps, either.

I've read comics on ComiXology and manga on the iBooks and Kindle apps. So not only is the CR manga reader currently missing (superior) features that copyright infringing methods use, other 100% legal methods have already implemented them.

Remembering current chapter and page really is essential. Because, finally, it's not just competing with how scanlation apps work, it's competing with CR's own video apps. Some of which (especialy the mobile version) will allow you to pick up from where you left off. And even the ones that don't remember your actual position will remember which episode you're up to.
