Hey guys!
So I just started using Crunchyroll's Manga app for iPhone, but it doesn't really have that many titles yet. I was wondering if anyone knows an app where I can buy/download manga that has a similar interface to Crunchy's. I LOVE the fact that you can zoom in on panels and swipe from one panel to the next, instead of page by page, so that's pretty much what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

I've had good luck both with the Amazon Kindle reader and Comixology, but I'll be honest that I only use them for reading manga/comics on tablets, not phone, and I hardly ever use panel view -- I know it exists in the Comixology app, and probably on the Kindle reader, but I can't swear to whether or not most manga you purchase from them take advantage of that (Note: you can read most manga purchased from Amazon on either app).

To others ready to answer, please do not share info about manga readers that rely on pirated content.

there's kinopy, which is the electronic store for kinokuniya. haven't tried it, but it might be worth checking out.

i think this is pretty much a standard feature

edit: wait. this is for raws though. you'd need to be familiar with the language.

edit2: i think reading manga on the phone is a pain, regardless of which app you end up using. the screen is just too small. that's my opinion, anyways.

I'll check out Comixology and kinopy. I don't mind raws, it's good practice
To be perfectly honest I don't really like reading manga on my phone either... I'm starting my manga collection and I'm buying physical copies, but I'm kinda overprotective and I don't really like taking the books out of my house.
So I think just buying a few to keep on my phone would solve that
