[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Audacious Software today is pleased to announce Fresh Comics 1.0, a mobile app that helps comic book enthusiasts track the week's newest comic book releases. Available for free for iPhone, iPod touch, and Android users, Fresh Comics includes the week's latest issues, as well as a powerful search feature and an innovative interface for tagging favorite creators, issues, and publishers for creating users' weekly shopping lists.
Fresh Comics advances the state of the art in mobile comic book apps with an network architecture that enables offline usage when the user is no longer connected to the Internet. Using an innovative fetch & store system, users retain the full functionality of the app regardless of their current connectivity.
Both the iPhone and Android versions of Fresh Comics were designed and implemented as fully native apps on their respective platforms. While the interfaces are intentionally similar, both versions make the most of their host platforms. The iPhone version includes a robust multi-touch Cover Explorer, while the Android version integrates with the system-wide search, includes a scheduled background downloader, and will feature a home screen widget in an upcoming release.
Audacious Software will be attending the C2E2 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo from March 18 - 20, 2011 and welcomes the opportunity to meet in person with interested comic enthusiasts, publishers, shop owners, and creators to discuss the app. Please e-mail us to schedule a meeting.
