    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).

    Thanks for the reply. I certainly hope you get to keep it! What a bummer. I wonder if they ran into copyright issues? Dunno.

    Well, looks like this app is dead. Most of the comics I follow on it no longer update. The website is gone. The app is gone from the App Store. Too bad. This was one app I used every day. Gonna miss it. :(

    Yeah, I'm with you, ChemoSabe. I finally had to give up on the app, also. The comics just weren't updating.

    I now get the same comics via RSS feed - but it just isn't the same. And I also was reading my comics daily. Sigh.

    I hope the developers can come back (although we don't know why they left...).

    Comic Turtle does the job.

    Sounds Great to hear about Funnies, Can you please provide guidelines,"how can I get it for my iPad"? I can't wait to enjoy with it.

    It's a free download from the App Store. Then, you either pay $4.99 (USD) for use of the app forever, with no ads; $1.99 for a monthly subscription; or nothing for a limited ad-supported viewing of some comics.

    Maybe you will like it better than I did. I elected not to keep it because it doesn't have the comics I regularly read. Although, my thanks to tsatryan for bringing it to my attention.

    Not sure of course what comics you are wanting, but there are a huge selection. Perhaps the selection isn't as large if you don't pony up the 4.99. I would be glad to look for whatever comics you want to let you know if they are in Comic Turtle. The app also provides for requesting comics not listed.

    By the way, I don't have any relationship with the app... I'm just a guy that bought it in the app store.
