Today’s Fresh Android apps features an update to Google Maps to include cool, 3D maps, a Yahoo! Messenger update to add a voice-calling feature, and an exciting tribute to the comic book.
A popular app for the iPhone platform as digital comic store, library and reader, Comics by ComiXology has finally made its way over to Android. It’s a reader that has tons of different titles, from major publishers and indie comic writers alike. Some are free, but some of the more popular titles, like The Walking Dead, Green Lantern or World of Warcraft comics you’ll have to buy. This app also offers a “guided view” which keeps the entire page of a comic intact, but readers can zoom in and out, or read by panel. This app stays true to the classic comic small business model by allowing readers to track down and connect with local comic book stores so that they can buy hard copies of their favorite titles.
