Hello all! Sorry if this has been asked before, but I was wondering if there was any way to add Crunchyroll's manga into a queue, much like with anime. It makes sense (at least to me) for both the "show" section as well as the "manga" to have this feature, but I couldn't find it. Any help/advice/answers are greatly appreciated!

The IOS and Android apps have bookmarks which serve that functionality if you read on a phone or a tablet. But nothing exists for the Web player, at least not yet. They are supposedly working on a beta version of an HTML5 reader, perhaps that will have more functionality when they release it. We can only hope.

Thanks for the quick reply. I hope they add a relatively basic feature to the manga section, which (in my opinion) I feel gets less love. Out of curiosity, these iOS & Android apps you mentioned, is it an official Crunchyroll app? If not, may you tell me the name of it?

Thanks in advance!

One last question. I just downloaded the main CR app. I believe you may have mentioned the manga app was separate?

The links I provided are for reading their Manga offerings only. The Anime apps are separate from those, yes, and they are mutually exclusive.

I appreciate all the information. You made my transition that much easier.

I still wonder why companies like to separate certain features into different applications. Perhaps it's to keep the application size reasonable? I'm just taking stabs in the dark here.

Until next time, cheers.

Limiting the feature set should also help keep the development manageable. The more features present in a single piece of software, the more things that can go wrong, and the longer it would take to correct problems without breaking other features. It also limits software bloat, for those people that are only interested in either the anime or manga sections of CR's service.
