ComiXology Debuts New iPad-Friendly HD Format, App Update

ComiXology Debuts HD Format, App Update

 

ComiXology released a new version of their iOS app on Tuesday, with aims to both capitalize on the new iPad's high-resolution "retina display," and better integrate sharing on social networks.

ComiXology 3.1 introduces a new high-resolution digital comics format, "CMX-HD," initially available for "a select group of comic books and graphic novels." CMX-HD is said to be in the process of being applied to the rest of ComiXology's digital library in the coming months, and there's no fee for upgrading previously purchased content (or price difference between the HD and non-HD version of a comic). The update also boosts Facebook, Twitter and email sharing within the app.
