Comic Book Bin Announces Intuitive iPhone App

Comic Book Bin Launches New, Intuitive iPhone™ App for Comic Book Hobbyists

ComicBookBin iPhone app adapts to lifestyle of comic book hobbyists

CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The popular and unique comic book Website The Comic Book Bin has launched a new iPhone app, with the most comprehensive list of comic book conventions, a global comic book store search and a directory of more than 10,000 articles.

The intuitive second-generation Comic Book Bin app adapts to the lifestyle of the comic book reader, unlike first-generation apps that force users to learn new interfaces.

"Other comic book apps force readers to read complex contents on tiny screens and to change the way they interact with a comic book," said Comic Book Bin Founder and Publisher Hervé St-Louis.

St-Louis, a reputable and well-known industry expert, said that the Website needed to reflect the future of communications with this mobile app.

"The iPhone, no matter how much other smart phones have advanced since the launch of the original version from Apple, is a symbol for the new way people consume information on mobile devices," he said. "It’s the most mature mobile environment."

Features of the new app include:
Powerful search engine that can find articles published since 2002. Users who prefer to browse and search articles can either use a gallery view with image thumbnails images when in landscape mode, or a simple news-reader type of listing.

A continually updated comic book convention listing that is one of the most comprehensive comic book convention schedules available anywhere.

A multi-lingual, global comic book store locator that locates comic book stores in the user's area without forcing the user to do any work such as entering zip codes or personal addresses. It also lists comic book stores freely, unlike other apps.
