Open Source: Beautiful Comic Book Reading App

In the last couple of years of updating this web site, especially after the iPad was released, I have received feedback from authors asking about creating comic book apps.

Last week I mentioned the extensive Cooliris-Toolkit, and one of the projects that makes extensive use of that toolkit is a beautiful open source comic book reader app known as ComicFlow.

What’s cool about this app is that not only does it look great, but also supports all the different common comic book formats such as CBZ (zip), CBR (rar) and PDF files.  Making it a great example on how to use those files.

ComicFlow is from Pierre-Olivier Latour and the Google Code page for the project can be found here:

Keep in mind that if you decide to create a reader yourself using this project that it is GPL licensed.

Added to the Open Source iOS Apps List.
