The GlobalComix App Moves Closer
I am really looking forward to this, and things are looking good as GlobalComix is taking on board their community feedback to move forward with the launch of their upcoming app.
Created for comics readers everywhere, further beta testing and community feedback moves the GlobalComix App closer to live date
GlobalComix wishes to thank the comics community for its amazing feedback! Due to the responses in the first round of beta testing for the GlobalComix App, the team is aiming to meet expectations of its potential users and of comics of all types and genres by shifting focus with more improvements and new add-on features to come. Here’s what’s new:
HOME SCREEN: Introducing dedicated streams on the Home Screen, allowing readers to more easily discover curated stories relevant to their interests. With so many different types of comics available, these streams will allow fans to find exactly what they’re looking for, whether it’s traditional comics, manga, webcomics, or even vertical scroll webtoons.
READING DIRECTION: GlobalComix wants readers to have a pleasant reading experience and ease of use. Through implementing a reading direction indicator ( left-to-right, right-to-left, or top-to-bottom) within the reading experience to provide context and avoid confusion when attempting to swipe to new pages. Readers can be informed on the direction to swipe to start/continue reading, resulting in a better experience so that content can be enjoyed in the way the creator intended.
READING FORMATS: Panel-to-panel reading comes to the GlobalComix App! While initially slated for future implementation, the excitement from the community about having this format made it all the greater reason to have it available at launch (as seen in the image above). There will also be dedicated sections in the home screen streams, as well as filters in “Explore” so that stories offering panel-to-panel can easily be found. Now is a great time for creators to set up panel-to-panel experience in their comics admin, so readers can experience this feature from day one.
“We understand that the community is the driving force for much of the success we’ve experienced here at GlobalComix,” said Eric Tapper, Head of Business Development at GlobalComix. “It has been a privilege to shape this app as a reflection of the thousands of invaluable conversations we’ve had. Each interaction has been a guidepost, collectively steering us towards the creation of an unparalleled platform for both readers and creators alike. As we put the finishing touches on the first version of our app, we'd like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the community that has been instrumental in making it happen. This is more than an app—it's a testament to the power of community, shaping what we believe will become the best environment for comics people worldwide."
GlobalComix first opened beta testing opportunities in February 2023, which was met with an exciting and exceptional response! With the help of the community, the team has further developed the GlobalComix App to exceed the expectations of comics readers and user experience, and is currently moving forward with adding even more beta testing applications in aid of completion.
