    I know there are apps for comicbooks, but am I overlooking the existence of an app for comicstrips that you'd read in the newspaper?

    Seems that that site has figured out how to make pop ups work on a iPad.

    I noticed that, but it doesn't seem to be particularly useful. All it does is give you a larger comic, which you can already do with a pinch zoom or double tap.

    I give a double thumbs up for "The Funnies" app. I've got all the funnies subscribed that I liked to read when I used to get a real newspaper. Plus, there are a ton more available...

    They get updated daily. Makes for a great morning coffee session.

    P.S. It's a bit dear; $4.99 USD in the app store. But, worth it to me. YMMV.

    Agreed. Great app.

    Now if the would get Spiderman daily, I would have all my daily strips in one place.

    Thanks for your responses. I'll definitely look into The Funnies app.

    Woooohoooo!!! They added Spiderman.

    Too cool. I submitted a request and a few days later it shows up as an option.

    This app rocks

    iTunes says The Funnies is not available in the US store. Are all of you using it not in the US? If you are, how did you get it?

    Huh.

    Wonder what happened to it ... or if it'll come back. I guess if you got it from before it disappeared, you still get to keep it. I use it every day, so I know it still works for me.

    Sorry you can't get it. Hopefully it'll come back (cause now I'm worried for those of us who DO have it).
