Appletell reviews Comics app for iPhone and iPod touch

From Appletell:

The great thing about Comics is the way you read it: panel-by-panel, with each one dramatically sliding into the next. The panels can be flipped to view in portrait or landscape, or by using the pinch-and-zoom function. You can also set the program to automatically rotate the image for the best effect. What’s really fun about this is that whomever is working on these panels is obviously paying a lot of attention to how it should be done: it’s not just a crop-and-plop job: text boxes that establish a mood are set off by themselves before a splash panel, and large panels are broken up into “shots” that help enhance the flow of the page. It’s like having a camera to add energy to an already dynamic medium.
