If I had a windows 8 phone laying around (never would buy or use one for my phone.. I don't waste money on trash devices) I would see if they locked the app coding. In theory if they didn't I might be able to port it into a multiplatform Windows 8 metro app (since win phone runs windows 8 embedded basically on an arm processor).

Are you on iOS?

I have an Android phone and do not see a subscribe button anywhere in the app (or on the website.) It doesn't seem like adding a subscribe feature should take over a year to me.

I have android. There is a bookmark button. My phone recently broke so I'm not sure where it is anymore, but I was able to bookmark manga... However when I go to the website to pick up where I left off, my bookmarks dont transfer. I imagine the bookmark function is only on the app right now and isn't account specific. I wish they'd fix the manga section of this site... sigh...

I have to hit the next button a couple times to change pages & theres a time lag. On other online manga sites you scroll down & then hit next (or previous). Here I'm constantly shifting the page to see top or bottom after changing to next page. After all that effort I have to write down the page I'm on to return to it later? **edit- looks like a regular browser bookmark will do the job.....

1. There are way more trash devices running Android than there are trash devices running Windows Phone, so I have no idea what you're going on about.

2. Why would you port the Windows Phone code to Windows 8/10? The Windows Phone app doesn't even have a manga reader in the first place.


On topic:
I'm guessing my inability to find a way to queue mangas means it still hasn't been implemented for the web client?

Come on, it's been over 2 years and a half. How hard can it be? Even *I* take less than a week to implement such simple features, and I'm very far from fast, especially when it comes to web development. I mean, there's already a queue for anime, and apparently for mangas on Android too, so why not reuse the code?

I understand that testing and debugging takes up more than 90% of development time, but 2 years is kinda pushing it.

I agree it should not take 2 years to add that feature to the website. The simple truth is they don't choose to add it. On a side note the coding required to make an app run on windows phone and windows 8 is the same unless arm processor required are used (basically, any coder knows there will be minor differences). By the way porting from Android to windows is not a simple plug and play activity. Android runs java on top of Linux for starters which is very different from windows. To avoid confusing anyone I will not explain this all any more deeply.
