The title says it all: discuss about CR's manga reader and tell us your problems with it, and maybe some suggestions to make it better. And who knows, maybe you love it and deeply disagree that it's terrible, feel free to voice that opinion as well below.



My thoughts:

That feeling when your thread gets zero replies after three days.

well...i never tried the manga reader. i'd rather have physical copies than read it in digital format, and i doubt CR have manga i'm interested in anyway - let alone LN.

yeah its not the greatest I keep losing track of where I left off on them to bad you couldn't resume reading from where you left off or not. I tend to use manga fox to read all my manga.

Ya it's pretty frustrating. But like I said, if you don't mind reading on your phone, their app is way better and has bookmarks and it remembers where you last left off. The web version should have the same features though.

The iOS version of the CR manga app always gives me the Request failed: bad request (400) message. I have to kill the app and reload. Is it just me having this problem?

I use it on my iPad and it works 95% of the time. When I read I always bookmark each chapter. Just in case it freaks out.

I would like more options. But the fact i cant save where i left off or leave a que or something makes it pretty unusable, if they just fixed that i would be pretty happy

Nah this happens to me as well. After reloading it, it usually works again but it's a strange issue.

A "bookshelf" of saved series honestly would be the biggest thing I want. There are a few manga I would want to keep track of but CR has no way to save a fav list. Bookmarks too... and a freaking app for WinPhone.

I have a hard enough time with CR lately SAT vwas a disaster

ButI will commrnt

1 Dont feel alone I add School Live summarries on the manga forum and have Zero replies !

Even the anime show discuusion posts have dropped off !

2 Since I dropped my paid sub until CR fixes a l;ot of issues I wont to be able to use the manga reader

That being said it just felt hard to use for me and although there are goiod titles there / not enough for me!

3 A lot of manga has taken a back seat to anime wjich I an way behind in / so except for a couple of titles the rest is backlogged!

Issues, some stated before, I'll add my own preferences.

Page scrolling right to left. It would however be better to have top to bottom. Yes they're meant to be read right to left, but the problem is that for other language readers the format top to bottom is easier to adjust to, it is a middle ground between Japanese and English since both do that.

Queue or last page read would be helpful. I also like that I can find chapters bundled into volumes. So perhaps have a volume read + last chapter read progression bar, like you have with video.

Other than that better load times during peak hours of use would be better.
