    When I started using this app I was so excited. I read during my lunch break for a much needed escape. Now I can't get past the log in. I crashes every time. I have uninstalled TWICE but it still doesn't work. I wished I had reviewed the newer reviews. I would not have updated if I had. Now it looks like I will need to cancel my subscription. Update: I changed my review because I did reach out as they asked and Marvel's tech team are working to help me resolve the issue with my tablet.
  • Marvel Comic Collection you can carry everywhere. Sep 20, 2019

This app save me hundreds/thousands of dollars a year on comics books. I would have to read my comics carefully to keep them mint. Most runs I would only read once then bag and board them.

Pulled the comics with value, favorite story arcs & runs didn’t have the trade. Kept most issues from 85’ ‘86’. Year I started reading and collecting comics. Mother friend would visit me “my mother” when I spent few weeks in the hospital. She would come with all the super heroes. I remember really liking Gi Joe, Groo and Spider Man. About 85% was left over. I thought the best place they could do lots of good. Hopefully open some young minds deep into the world of Marvel superhero’s and friends. The Children’s Hospital is where they found a new home. I was pleased to see they already had a strong collection. There are plenty of older kids and teens that are just in bed with time to read.

  • Great app with lots of content, but recent major update brings it down Sep 27, 2021

    By HyenaChrome
    I’ve been subscribed to Unlimited for a few years now and I’ve always loved the interface of the old app. Everything was simple and easy to navigate, particularly if you wanted to read a massive event in the correct order. With the most recent “Infinity” update, this has been removed. Although you can still see all included comics in events such as “House of M”, they are no longer numbered in reading order. Small detail that helped me stay on track while I read all comics in one event. Another small issue is that now when I read comics in any mode, the time/date and white swipe bar are displayed at ALL times. On iOS with the old app, this was never a problem as they simply disappeared after a second. Just to reiterate, these are small issues that I’m assuming will get ironed out in future updates. At the same time, these should have been taken care of before releasing the update. Despite that, I still love Unlimited and the content it brings. Having original issues all the way up to current ones is great, and the exclusive content is always welcome. I’d rate the app 5 stars before the update, but until they can correct some of these problems, I believe its a solid 3 stars.

    Navigation is horrendous Edit for clarity: This app has an amazing selection and gives me everything I want content wise. I've been a subscriber since 2014ish, But it doesn't feel like its created by people who use it. On a personal level, I was reading 5-10 comics a night. Since the update my enjoyment has plummeted and typically get through 2 or 3 every once in a while before putting it down. Bullet points: Navigation between last issue, home, and next issues need to be smoother. Searching series is difficult: If I search X-men vol 2 there are 531 results, and the title I'm looking for is the 23rd down arbitrarily. Alphabetical, publication date, or something needs to be implemented How we're expected to organize and keep our reading straight needs to be clearer. Especially if reading crossovers with multiple titles. I used to be able to do it through my recently read without any work. Library feels like the way to do it now, but so far seems like a lot of work to keep it organized. Little things like if I'm reading the Onslaught reading list, it won't take me to the next issue in the reading list. I have to push back 2 or 3 times to get back to the reading list and click the next issue in the list. Not impossible, but seems bulky. I'll change my review as it does seem like things are being ironed out, and still appreciate the service.

    I have always been a comic book fan. However I live in a rural place, and there were never any places to buy comic books of any kind growing up. Having this app and being able to read all the stories I wanted to is perfect. Curated lists of things like universe spanning events make this app easy to use. A library of over 25k comics would be daunting if it weren’t so organized. If you find an art style or writer you like you can find all their past works in Marvel. The cell by cell reading is great on a phone and even on unconventional frames it scrolls through the dialogue and action in the order it was meant to be. For the most part. Occasionally there will be a place where if you don’t zoom out you may have missed a text box. It is still being updated and curated weekly with newer and old issues. If I had bought these comics new or even secondhand I would have spent a few thousand dollars on all I’ve read, for a fraction of the cost. Well worth it in my opinion.

    New UI is nice, but major hiccups with the upgrade were frustrating. After adding missing and removing previously deleted items, I'm getting used to it. The big remaining issue for me is search. I can no longer search by publication date. I can sort all series by publication, but not items published in a given time period. This sucks for anyone working through the archive of comics missed over the years.

  • Unable to access Sep 29, 2020

    By Alkirk87
    As of right now, I cannot access the app. Every time I try to login, I get a network error. I’ve tried to reinstall the app. I’ve tried to cancel and renew my subscription. Nothing works. I’ve tried to go through customer support, and they responded to me once and said they cannot locate my account. I responded with my details to verify, but it’s been almost a week and I’ve still heard nothing. At this point, I’ve been about 2 weeks into a subscription that I’ve paid for, and have not been able to use the app at all. Basically, I cannot judge whether this app is good or not because I cannot get pass the login screen. I don’t know if this is an issue with the app, my account, or what. What I do know is that I’ve been charged for something that I cannot access. I’ll gladly update this review if the issue gets solved. However, if I get to the point where I have to renew my account, I won’t be doing so as I will already be out an entire month of wasted money.
  • Makes reading all the events a dream! Aug 4, 2019

    By sakenobi18
    Before getting this app, I was planning on buying all the individual TPBs of all the best Marvel events from the Dark Phoenix Saga to Civil War. Buying all of those would have been hundreds if not thousands of dollars. With this app and a subscription of $10 a month, I can read as much as I want. I can read all the events plus all the individual issues from my favorite series and discover new ones. Reading on my iPad is a dream. All the pages are crisp and vibrant. Reading older comics never looked so good, not even when originally published. The app runs well and I’ve had no issues with it. You can search by series, keyword, creator, etc, and create reading libraries to keep track of what you are reading. I’m grateful that this app exists for Marvel and wish DC and Image would do something similar. Either way, this is a great app that allows me to read whatever I want for a small monthly fee. It doesn’t get better than that.

    I am soooooo dissatisfied with this update. I got this subscription so I can read comics in chronological order as they were originally released. The crossovers and continuity was important to me. I started reading it by publication date for the early 80's, this update came through as I was finishing 1993. When reading chronological, you get full story arcs and discover titles that tied in that you never heard about. All that is lost now. I'm not sure if I'll be a customer Any longer.
  • Oct 2, 2021

    By Patrick Irish
    I used to love this but now I spend half my time trying to read cross overs in the right order. They removed sorting by date and now it's grouped by character or series so it's ton of back and forth. Despite the new app causing major problems, they won't go back to the older better app and instead want to fix this over the coming months. Bad user experience so it gets a 1 to warn others to avoid.
  • Wow! Ruined a great app in one fell stroke. Sep 17, 2021

    By Det. B
    A week ago Marvel Unlimited was the best comic reading app and comic investment on the market. It had a few glitches but it was a 5 star app and was worth every penny. I’ve had it for years and I have tried DC apps, Comixology, CloudLibrary, and Hoopla. Marvel was the best even when it was purely web-based back in the day. But the most recent update threw away everything in an attempt to be intuitive and create a “cooler” look. I had years of comics marked as read and a library full of my next comics to read. All gone in an update. Replaced with some random issues I’ve already read weeks or months ago. The search feature was so easy to use before. Now it is so user unfriendly and difficult to find issues. Don’t get me started on how difficult it is to add or delete issues from your library. I just read an issue using full screen mode (smart panel doesn’t seem to work right for some issues and isn’t my preferred view mode) and I noticed that it will not do full screen. It has a black border around the page of about half an inch. Makes everything smaller and I have the newest large iPhone model. The update is a huge step backwards. Please fix it quickly because it is making me reconsider continuing my subscription. Luckily I have a few months left before I have to renew so I hope the marketing and software geniuses behind this update get it figured out and get it functional again. Change can be good. But this was poorly conceived.

    The new update destroyed this app. Constant crashes and when it does work all I get are black pages with the Hydra symbol in the center. Will NOT be renewing my subscription and if it was possible to get a refund for my remaining months, I would take it. And now all the updates cause the app to crash everytime I open it. Zero help from the development team. "Get a new tablet" is not a good response.
  • Great until the latest update Oct 1, 2021

    By WeeGee990
    I’ve been a subscriber to MU for just under 3 years. It has been amazing saving money and shelf space being able to read thousands of Marvel comics. A couple weeks ago, a new update dropped that changed pretty much everything. While the app looks and handles better, it introduced a lot of bugs. Over time these have gotten fixed, that’s not what I’m mad about. See, there is a tab in the app called “Continue Reading” and it used to keep track of all the series you were in the middle of, like the way streaming services do. If you finished an issue, the next issue would pop up in Continue Reading, making it easy to read multiple series at once (especially useful for events that take place over multiple series). The new update neutered Continue Reading, the tab now only keeps track of a single issue you are reading, not the whole series. I thought this was a bug, but contacting support told me that this is the intended way for it to work. This is a major step backwards, as series hopping is incredibly difficult. You could use the library feature as a sort of Continue Reading, but that really floods the library that I use as a list of series I would like to read later. All of MU’s competitors have the same Continue Reading feature that MU used to have, and now the app is a slog to use. I am going to keep this in mind in a few months when it comes time to renew.

    They redesigned a working app to make it shinier, and now the damn thing won't load even after reinstalling. It says to get help from a FAQ, but you have to login to see that stupid thing. There's literally no way to get help. I hate it when management decides they need to screw with something just so they feel important, they make everything worse, and then they do nothing. What fools.
  • The Redesign is a Complete Disaster Sep 16, 2021

    By robertsg3
    The old version of this app was, aside from a few obnoxious bugs, super well-designed and made sorting and organizing comics and reading lists incredibly easy. With this latest update, they’ve not only turned the app into a buggy mess, but they’ve set the user interface back about 10 years. It’s like the designers are TRYING to make reading less convenient. The new search function is borderline unusuable. The old version of the app had a variety of Browse features that made comic discovery fun and easy. Now, sometimes it’s impossible to find a specific issue even if you search for the exact title and issue #. Reading Lists are no longer easy to navigate. For some incomprehensible reason, they got rid of the handy Grid View in your library, meaning that all comics are now organized by series. This makes jumping back and forth between series (which is necessary if you’re following a reading order or reading chronologically) and absolute chore. This is all made even worse by the fact that the app is now ridden with bugs and constantly forgets which comics are “read” and “unread.” Meaning, even if you organize your unread books chronologically, the list is no longer accurate because half of the books are ones you already read months ago. Just an all-around disaster. I can only assume this redesign was some corporate mandate to make the app more mobile-friendly.

    Sadly, this great service has been ruined by one of the worst updates I have ever seen. In an attempt to make the interface looke more like Netflix they have severely hampered the search options. I can no longer easily browse through the numerous series to find a random one to read. The loss of searching by publication date is also a huge blow. I honestly wish they would rollback to the old interface and just focus on fixing bugs, it was so much better.

    New update got rid of my favorite feature, being able to search and sort by publication date. I have been using this app for years and loving it, but I always read in order by publication date. This allows an experience across multiple story arcs at the same time. Please bring back this feature quickly! Also noticed thay the Read/Not Read flag seems to be gone. This is critical to how I use this app. I'm not really interested in the app without these features.
  • I liked the idea of an update, but now I have more issues Sep 13, 2021

    By SimplyFaded
    I really like that downloading comics is faster and unlimited. I like that it is a *little* easier to track comics within a one character series; however I now find it very difficult to track events/crossovers. There are some comics I’ve found in a series that were from a completely different one/year. I really really dislike that my handy ‘read’ tick is gone. I have more tapping to do just to get to a comic and I have to completely close the app to exit out of a comic if I switch between reading more than one because that seems to be the only way to get back to my home. Whenever I try to sort my downloaded comics it glitches and if I try opening one it glitches again to open the last comic I downloaded. I find the scrolling feature glitches frequently and is more frustrating than when the comics were sorted in a grid format. The glitch when I scroll is that it will suddenly take me back to the top and I have to rescroll through everything again. Overall searching for my comics is harder with this new download than before because at least before I had letters one the side to help me get to where I wanted quicker and when I sorted a-z or by publication date it actually worked. :(

    Marvel Unlimited is absolutely Amazing, Fantastic, Uncanny like the the X-Men. I collected and read a lot great Marvel Comics in my youth. Wolverine and the X-Men were favorite long before the movies. I loved many many other characters too. But as I got older I went to college, got married and had a job and mortgage. I got away from reading comics. But I still had my collection and still went to the movies. About a year ago I started going through my collection and re- organizing it. As I went to the local comic book store for supplies. I bought a couple of comics and I got back into it. But I also realized a lot has change. A lot stories and events took place that I knew nothing about. I couldn’t go out and buy 20 years worth of back issues to catch up. But then I saw this App. I subscribed to it and WOW WOW WOW. It’s like winning the comic book lottery so many stories at my fingertips. This is a great way for me to catch up on all favorite comics and reread some old favorites of mine. I can’t ever get bored because there will always be a story to read. Thank You Marvel.

I could possibly live 4 lifetimes and not read all of the comics that I wanted. There are a couple of things that I would like to see. With some of the events, especially the ones spanning different comics, I would love to see the ability to "subscribe" to them and just get the next issue automatically downloaded to my device when I am done with the previous. I would love to see that functionality throughout, although I will say that you have done a bang-up job on the last update, it can even remember the page I'm on! Keep up the great work! It is the most satisfying $9.99 I spend every month! Stuart
  • It’s fantastic. Oct 9, 2019

    By DCShields
    I have always been a comic book fan. However I live in a rural place, and there were never any places to buy comic books of any kind growing up. Having this app and being able to read all the stories I wanted to is perfect. Curated lists of things like universe spanning events make this app easy to use. A library of over 25k comics would be daunting if it weren’t so organized. If you find an art style or writer you like you can find all their past works in Marvel. The cell by cell reading is great on a phone and even on unconventional frames it scrolls through the dialogue and action in the order it was meant to be. For the most part. Occasionally there will be a place where if you don’t zoom out you may have missed a text box. It is still being updated and curated weekly with newer and old issues. If I had bought these comics new or even secondhand I would have spent a few thousand dollars on all I’ve read, for a fraction of the cost. Well worth it in my opinion.
  • Unable to access Sep 29, 2020

    By Alkirk87
    As of right now, I cannot access the app. Every time I try to login, I get a network error. I’ve tried to reinstall the app. I’ve tried to cancel and renew my subscription. Nothing works. I’ve tried to go through customer support, and they responded to me once and said they cannot locate my account. I responded with my details to verify, but it’s been almost a week and I’ve still heard nothing. At this point, I’ve been about 2 weeks into a subscription that I’ve paid for, and have not been able to use the app at all. Basically, I cannot judge whether this app is good or not because I cannot get pass the login screen. I don’t know if this is an issue with the app, my account, or what. What I do know is that I’ve been charged for something that I cannot access. I’ll gladly update this review if the issue gets solved. However, if I get to the point where I have to renew my account, I won’t be doing so as I will already be out an entire month of wasted money.
  • Makes reading all the events a dream! Aug 4, 2019

    By sakenobi18
    Before getting this app, I was planning on buying all the individual TPBs of all the best Marvel events from the Dark Phoenix Saga to Civil War. Buying all of those would have been hundreds if not thousands of dollars. With this app and a subscription of $10 a month, I can read as much as I want. I can read all the events plus all the individual issues from my favorite series and discover new ones. Reading on my iPad is a dream. All the pages are crisp and vibrant. Reading older comics never looked so good, not even when originally published. The app runs well and I’ve had no issues with it. You can search by series, keyword, creator, etc, and create reading libraries to keep track of what you are reading. I’m grateful that this app exists for Marvel and wish DC and Image would do something similar. Either way, this is a great app that allows me to read whatever I want for a small monthly fee. It doesn’t get better than that.
  • Holy cows Spiderman!!! May 16, 2019

    By TheJosephIAm
    I never took the time to read some of the reviews of this up until now and I am just shocked at how many people seem to have issues with it. I just passed my one year mark with marvel unlimited and while there were some really minor bugs in the past year, overall I have never had a single issue with this app. I have been very happy with this purchase and the amount of comics that I have been able to read in the past year using this app on the iPad has been amazing. I’ll admit that I’m not a big fan of it on the phone but I prefer to do all my reading on my iPad anyways so no big deal for me. My experience is that this app has been extremely stable overall and I have been very impressed with it. A good update they did a few weeks ago I believe .6 update for allowing coming since you’ve already read to be shown as read is a great improvement. Keep up the good work
  • Locks up frequently Oct 31, 2020

    By Andytoon85
    The sheer number of comics available to read makes marvel unlimited well worth the price for the subscription. I'm an annual subscriber and I'm always impressed on what it has to offer. Unfortunately, the app is quite buggy. Many times when I click to open a book to read I get a black screen that says loading data and nothing happens. Sometimes i get the message in the middle of reading a book when changing pages. The only way I've found to fix it is to close out the app and reopen it again. This can be very frustrating when I'm reading a lot of issues in a row. Also, the download process is show. I try to download a book in the hope that I won't get any loading pages errors but then the download can take hours, if the book even downloads at all. I really enjoy the app when it works. I hope these bug fixes can be taken care of soon.
  • Update Sep 14, 2021

    By jdclyde
    The new layout and functions since the update are fine, but they removed the ability to search by publication date, which is how I found the issues I wanted to read. Now I have to get on my computer and go to different sites to find the issues that I want to read. Please restore that search function. Also, the issues I put into my library are grouped by series, which is a bit irritating, but I can work around that…..this is what I initially thought, but after using it for a couple of days, I found that grouping everything by series, which could be sorted chronologically, it was easy to put the next issue into my library while removing the one I had just read. Also sorting the series in my library by publication date only sorted those issues I had saved to the library, making it simpler to read the comics in the order they were written.
  • Great so far, room for improvement Apr 16, 2019

    By Mr noital
    The subscription service is a miracle of the modern age, and the app itself works a lot better (bug wise) than other (maybe outdated) reviews would suggest. I haven’t used the app and service for more than a week, but I have enjoyed it thoroughly so far (logging in, downloading/reading comics, etc.). I would, however, suggest an interface that is more like the Marvel Comics app, as Unlimited’s interface (beyond some of its reading lists) does not provide enough options for exploring, learning, and seeing editor-picked series/lists (like in the Comics app). And speaking of series, the “read next in series” button at the end of a comic is great functionality, but I wish that I could search, select, and save series as a whole in the main interface. That being said, the app still gives you the power to search for comics along a variety of criteria, which is important and helpful, albeit if you already know what you are looking for. This leads me to wonder: why are there two apps, one for “subscription” and one for purchasing, when the experience could be consolidated? Are these two different developers, are there historical reasons, or something else? And what stops these apps from being consolidated? All in all, this app experience is solid for me, even if (in my opinion) the interface is lacking in functionality.
  • Most used app on my phone. Dec 10, 2018

    By W00dy1007
    I can’t put this app down. I read comics every day now. Thanks to marvel unlimited I’ve been able to read so many issues I’ve lost count, where before this I would have never been able to afford to buy how many comics I have read. Don’t get me wrong I have a collection of my favorites like the venom and carnage series or the iron wars saga, but I can’t get enough of reading them on my computer or phone. Here are a few issues with the offline downloads where sometimes if you have downloaded so many books and you have very bad service that is in and out it will sometimes delete the offline saves. Even after you turn your phone on airplane mode. But it’s ok as long as you have WiFi or decent. Word to the wise; try the one month free trial. Cancel it in your subscriptions the next day so it doesn’t auto charge next month. And if you really like it go online on a computer and get the year subscription through their desktop site. Save you about 40$-50$
  • Love the content; update spawned problems Sep 13, 2021

    By KelaylaZ
    I have been using this app for months now and have had very few problems with it. I had some comics downloaded, my reading lists were just as I liked them, and all was right with the world when it came to this app. Then this morning I noticed that it had auto updated. I opened the app exited to see what new features had been added. The new loading screen was beautiful. But it showed that I had to re-sign in. Ok, I guess. I did it and it was like completely starting over with the app. It shows that I don’t have any reading lists or any comics downloaded or anything read. Ok, not a huge deal. I know what I’ve been reading. Then I tried to read a comic in the app. It was so buggy. I couldn’t get the full page to show and scrolling through the panels to read was a nightmare. Please fix this. I really love being able to read all my comics on this app and don’t want to not be able to do that very well anymore.
  • Good for one person at a time Jun 30, 2019

    By PortSyd
    If what you want to do is read specific comics, this is a fine app. You can add comics to your library and filter by read or unread. But you can’t create subsets in your library, and you can’t mark something that you read but that your spouse is still waiting to read. There’s no filter for reading age, so I can’t easily find comics that are appropriate for my son, and when I read something that would be okay, I have no way to sequester it from the books that are too bloody for a seven year old. I haven’t found a good way to put an entire story arc (like all of Secret Invasion, across all books, for example) in my library, and then there’s no good way to sort that out from other story arcs that happened to be published at the same time. So this app is great when I know what book I want to read. But it has the potential to be a lot better and to better engage people in comics than it is/does currently.
  • Great but could be a little more reader friendly Apr 21, 2019

    By B.Watts
    I have loved my Marvel Unlimited subscription, but one thing I want to use it most for is still frustrating to do. Reading major events is definitely the most exciting thing about the service for me, and I do like the reading lists service for that. The problem is the lack of sorting with those lists. With Civil War 2 or Secret Empire for instance, there are many different comic runs that make up the story. To actually read them in order you need to constantly scan the dates of every issue in those multiple runs or get another reading list online and follow that. Honestly a view as single list with basic sorting options like: “sort by release date” would make it a hundred times easier to read the issues in a proper order! This one feature would make the MU experience for reading events that span multiple comic runs 100x better!
  • The new update is not so great Sep 23, 2021

    By jhumisanumber
    I used to love this app. I can't get better Marvel content anywhere. But I have to drop a star, because there's been a bunch of issues since the big update. The app looks great but the functionality isn't what it once was. My biggest issue is that all the comics we read in the past are now marked as unread. I've read thousands of comics, I can't go back and re-mark all of them as read. That's too time consuming, so now I'm left with a muddied up library. The search function doesn't always work. I understand that the whole thing is new so there's bound to be glitches but it happens quite often. The sort function also doesn't save your previous preferences so it's a little annoying having to re-select it. If I sorted A-Z last time there's a very good chance that I'll sort it that way next time too. Finally when I read horizontally the page doesn't fill up the whole screen. The width of the page is the same as if I were reading vertically. Which is fine if I'm reading on my iPad but if I'm on my phone that doesn't quite work. Even with an iPhone pro max the text is too small at times. I know I can just zoom in, but I didn't need to do that with the old app. If those issues get fixed I'll be very happy with this app, but right now there's just a whole bunch of frustration.
  • 27k comics Apr 2, 2020

    By ZombieNoob358
    I’m a big fan of marvel and I wish I could rate this five stars but I have one issue with this app. Get the pun? Ok, that wasn’t funny. But seriously, I have an issue with this app. It’s hard to find comics, because you can only search for series, characters, creators, and comic events. I wish the team at marvel would add a search button like the one on the other marvel app. (Marvel Comics) Then I could search for individual issues. Everything else I love about the app and I absolutely love the mystery comic button that you press on the home screen and it will give you a surprise comic to read. I love marvel unlimited and you can count on me for having a subscription to it. (I’m currently doing my free trial) Also it’s really nice that marvel is giving free comics for people who don’t have enough money for the subscription and bored because of Covid-19 and quarantine.
  • It has its problems, but I like it Feb 6, 2019

    By Sigourney Orgeron
    To the people complaining that they have to pay a monthly fee.....why were you expecting free access to thousands of comics? This really confused me when it came to reviews. I have no problem paying a monthly fee to something I plan on using frequently. As for the app itself, loading times can be rather annoying but downloading them seems to fix that for me. I get most people don’t have that type of storage or don’t want to do that and I agree that the app SHOULD work online on the servers no problem, but if you can give it a try that might help. I personally downloaded this to read old Spider-Man comics that exist nowhere so I think this is a treasure to have personally (I wouldn’t be able to read them otherwise). Overall I don’t think this app deserves 1 or 2 stars at all. That a bit harsh.
  • Version 7.1, now viewing issues in series shows fewer covers per page, lots of dead space Sep 13, 2021

    By NY App
    Version 7.1 inexplicably changed, in a major downgrade, the ability the view all issues in the series. Had always been there were tiles of the issue covers, maybe a dozen per screen, so you could easily brows through to find something, and see with a simple, clear demarkation, whether you had previously read the issue. Now, only one issue cover per line, and a blank dead space from the cover to the end of the screen. Most of the screen is now dead black space where issue covers had flowed, and the demarcation of whether you have viewed the issue before is more difficult to see. Baffling change. Otherwise love, love, love the app, and have since it first came out.
  • A Marvel Must For Fans Apr 24, 2021

    By Christopher, Salina KS
    I have had this app for close to a year and enjoy it a lot. I have been going through Sider-Man and it’s many titles through 1978. I also read titles to my son and daughter. The number of issues available are fantastic and if you are a fairly regular comic reader it is well worth the cost for all the issues you have wanted to read but couldn’t afford with what you choose to buy. I have been really impressed and look forward to the continued growth of this app. If I had one criticism, I wish there was parent settings to make some issues available to my kids as I am not ready to give them access to the full library. I also am disappointed that their are gaps in more classic issues which can be frustrating when you are in the middle of a story.
  • Navigation Jan 24, 2020

    By DrKnome
    This app has so many amazing comics it’s insane, albeit overwhelming and daunting. It was good for me that I knew exactly where I wanted to jump in with the 2011 Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales comics, which eventually led to the Cataclysm Event. This event brought together the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Ultimates, which gave me my next reads! For 10 dollars a month this is a good deal, or 69 a year if you are a smarter person than me. I use this app during all my work lunch breaks to cool down and sink into a comic book. They have the old ones and new reboots for those of us who want the story from the beginning, but also want the comics to be more modern. All in all 4 stars due to the fact that it’s a little hard to navigate and doesn’t make it easy to find things, google is your best friend there.
  • Oct 6, 2021

    By Kristy Thompson
    When I started using this app I was so excited. I read during my lunch break for a much needed escape. Now I can't get past the log in. I crashes every time. I have uninstalled TWICE but it still doesn't work. I wished I had reviewed the newer reviews. I would not have updated if I had. Now it looks like I will need to cancel my subscription. Update: I changed my review because I did reach out as they asked and Marvel's tech team are working to help me resolve the issue with my tablet.
  • Great app with lots of content, but recent major update brings it down Sep 27, 2021

    By HyenaChrome
    I’ve been subscribed to Unlimited for a few years now and I’ve always loved the interface of the old app. Everything was simple and easy to navigate, particularly if you wanted to read a massive event in the correct order. With the most recent “Infinity” update, this has been removed. Although you can still see all included comics in events such as “House of M”, they are no longer numbered in reading order. Small detail that helped me stay on track while I read all comics in one event. Another small issue is that now when I read comics in any mode, the time/date and white swipe bar are displayed at ALL times. On iOS with the old app, this was never a problem as they simply disappeared after a second. Just to reiterate, these are small issues that I’m assuming will get ironed out in future updates. At the same time, these should have been taken care of before releasing the update. Despite that, I still love Unlimited and the content it brings. Having original issues all the way up to current ones is great, and the exclusive content is always welcome. I’d rate the app 5 stars before the update, but until they can correct some of these problems, I believe its a solid 3 stars.
  • Oct 6, 2021

    By Daniel Adams
    Navigation is horrendous Edit for clarity: This app has an amazing selection and gives me everything I want content wise. I've been a subscriber since 2014ish, But it doesn't feel like its created by people who use it. On a personal level, I was reading 5-10 comics a night. Since the update my enjoyment has plummeted and typically get through 2 or 3 every once in a while before putting it down. Bullet points: Navigation between last issue, home, and next issues need to be smoother. Searching series is difficult: If I search X-men vol 2 there are 531 results, and the title I'm looking for is the 23rd down arbitrarily. Alphabetical, publication date, or something needs to be implemented How we're expected to organize and keep our reading straight needs to be clearer. Especially if reading crossovers with multiple titles. I used to be able to do it through my recently read without any work. Library feels like the way to do it now, but so far seems like a lot of work to keep it organized. Little things like if I'm reading the Onslaught reading list, it won't take me to the next issue in the reading list. I have to push back 2 or 3 times to get back to the reading list and click the next issue in the list. Not impossible, but seems bulky. I'll change my review as it does seem like things are being ironed out, and still appreciate the service.
  • Oct 2, 2021

    By Joe Finfer
    New UI is nice, but major hiccups with the upgrade were frustrating. After adding missing and removing previously deleted items, I'm getting used to it. The big remaining issue for me is search. I can no longer search by publication date. I can sort all series by publication, but not items published in a given time period. This sucks for anyone working through the archive of comics missed over the years.
  • Marvel Unlimited Jun 19, 2019

    By Dr.Rolo
    This app is fantastic way to start getting into comics. I had hard time trying to get into them, but I saw an ad for it in my ps4 Spider-man game and thought I would try it. At first it was amazing, I was reading lots of X-men, Spider-man, and Star Wars. The big problem for me is that once you find a series and you catch up on it, the comics are never up to date with what the next issue is. For example, take TAS( The Amazing Spider-man 2018-present) there might be only #1-11, but on the Marvel Comics app it has the current issues. That is my biggest problem with the app, because you pay all this money to read comics, but there’re not kept up to date. Some series are months and months behind on the app. All and all Marvel Unlimited is not a bad app. If your new to comics it is a great way to find out what you like to read. If you’ve been reading for a while, like myself, you would probably be better off just using the Marvel Comics app and paying for your books, or just going to your local comic book shop.
  • Love the service! Hate the app! Oct 2, 2021

    By MD-Ph0t0
    I absolutely love having access to all of these stories. When I was a kid I always wanted to be able to follow all the side stories and notations. To see what was going on in the background of the comics I loved. Now I can and do. I’m using the app almost every day. Which is why the app is so frustrating to me! There is NO useable search engine. You should be able to enter the title that you want and have it. Instead you have to browse through all of the titles and then scroll through all of the issues looking for what you want. Heck, why not have the notations in issues clickable links to take you to the appropriate comic. Also the app has loading problems and a lot of the older comics have not been well adapted to the new format. The digital frames often cut off midway through the comic frame. Text on the edges is cut through. So basically, the service is fantastic. I can’t recommend it enough. But the app is very poorly thought out and needs a full overhaul.
  • Great app, great selection - quality ruins the experience. Apr 27, 2020

    By slothrop86
    I really, really want to give this app 5 stars. It’s a great experience, great selection, at a great price. But if you look a little more closely, especially at the comics from the 60s and 70s, you start to see the art is washed out and heavily compressed - like a jpeg. The beautiful crosshatching and stippling as a result of the printing press process is almost completely lost. As an artist this is incredibly distracting. Maybe this is a byproduct of the digitizing of old comics - maybe an attempt to make them more modern looking? Maybe to just deliver them in a cheaper format, at a lower resolution? But if you, like me, zoom in on a panel and expect to see the color of an old comic actually be a few colors printed on top of each other, dot by dot, you will be disappointed. This is a shame, as much of the detail and therefor quality of older works are lost. Maybe I expected too much, but for me it’s a very unfortunate loss.
  • I truly want to love this app, but it’s hard Dec 4, 2019

    By JulianLaiGil
    I’ve been using this app on and off for a couple of years now and I’ve always found issues with it. Nothing that I couldn’t tolerate before but lately it’s gotten very annoying. I can’t read the comic book I want to read. The initial pages don’t load and, after restarting my phone they still won’t load. I tried to read it offline and nothing. Waited to be at home to see if it was a connection problem and still have the issue. I tried to contact support to see if I could submit a video capture or anything and there’s no easy way to report bugs. It’s very frustrating because of the time that I’ve used the app and paid for the service, probably I’ve been satisfied with it 30% of the time. The time that I use the app the most is in the subway and the offline books sometimes won’t even load either... I’m truly getting annoyed with it.
  • Wont let me read comics :( Aug 4, 2021

    By Leon.Ferrer
    I’ve subscribed to the app yesterday and it worked fine for like an hour but then the app bugged out and crashed. When I opened it again it wont let me read comics anymore. It keeps saying there’s a “connection issue” and saying that I’m not subscribed even tho I definitely paid. Even when I press the option to pay again it says it acknowledge that I’m actually subscribed already and don’t have to pay again until next month. I even tried logging in on my iPad instead and it still thinks I’m not subscribed. I loved the app and reading the comics was fine but I’ve been trying at this for the past hour to get it fixed. I verified my account, reset my devices a couple times, and my internet connection is fine. But since I it wont let me read comics, I wish I could’ve gotten a refund at least since the app is at fault.
  • Great Selection, Buggy App Feb 24, 2021

    By JimblesDave
    I love the amount of comics the subscription gives you access to, although only being able to download twelve at a time seems like a ridiculously low number considering how short a single issue can be. The main issue I have is with the app, which is borderline unusable more often than not. My internet isn’t great so I like to download comics ahead of reading them, and doing so feels like a Herculean task most of the time with the app crashing after I manage to add a single issue to my ‘read offline’ list. I have to give it three stars since I have been voraciously wolfing down comics at a rate that would be way too much money if I was buying them separately instead of a paying for a subscription. For the comic selection I’d give 5 stars but for the performance of the app itself I’d give one. So for both combined, 3 stars feels fair to me.
  • Great until the latest update Oct 1, 2021

    By WeeGee990
    I’ve been a subscriber to MU for just under 3 years. It has been amazing saving money and shelf space being able to read thousands of Marvel comics. A couple weeks ago, a new update dropped that changed pretty much everything. While the app looks and handles better, it introduced a lot of bugs. Over time these have gotten fixed, that’s not what I’m mad about. See, there is a tab in the app called “Continue Reading” and it used to keep track of all the series you were in the middle of, like the way streaming services do. If you finished an issue, the next issue would pop up in Continue Reading, making it easy to read multiple series at once (especially useful for events that take place over multiple series). The new update neutered Continue Reading, the tab now only keeps track of a single issue you are reading, not the whole series. I thought this was a bug, but contacting support told me that this is the intended way for it to work. This is a major step backwards, as series hopping is incredibly difficult. You could use the library feature as a sort of Continue Reading, but that really floods the library that I use as a list of series I would like to read later. All of MU’s competitors have the same Continue Reading feature that MU used to have, and now the app is a slog to use. I am going to keep this in mind in a few months when it comes time to renew.
  • I liked the idea of an update, but now I have more issues Sep 13, 2021

    By SimplyFaded
    I really like that downloading comics is faster and unlimited. I like that it is a *little* easier to track comics within a one character series; however I now find it very difficult to track events/crossovers. There are some comics I’ve found in a series that were from a completely different one/year. I really really dislike that my handy ‘read’ tick is gone. I have more tapping to do just to get to a comic and I have to completely close the app to exit out of a comic if I switch between reading more than one because that seems to be the only way to get back to my home. Whenever I try to sort my downloaded comics it glitches and if I try opening one it glitches again to open the last comic I downloaded. I find the scrolling feature glitches frequently and is more frustrating than when the comics were sorted in a grid format. The glitch when I scroll is that it will suddenly take me back to the top and I have to rescroll through everything again. Overall searching for my comics is harder with this new download than before because at least before I had letters one the side to help me get to where I wanted quicker and when I sorted a-z or by publication date it actually worked. :(
  • Update ruined it Oct 2, 2021

    By Antilles2210
    Update: They seem to have fixed the issue with my missing “Read” issues. But the event that I was reading is still a huge pain to navigate. I like to read the issues in release order, jumping from series to series, instead of just one series at a time. The event page used to list all the different series in rows with the issues increasing left to right. It made things really easy to find. Now it lists everything in one looooong column top to bottom. So alllll the issues of one series, then allllll the issues of another, then alllllll the issues of another, and so on. It makes it a HUGE hassle to jump from issue 6 in one series to issue 6 in another series. A lot of unnecessary scrolling when the old way of showing them all in a grid worked so well. This used to be a good app but they ruined it. After the update I had to delete the app and reinstall it just to log in. I’m trying to find where I left off but the event that I was following is gone. I searched for one of the titles to find it that way but none of my comics are listed as Read anymore. The interface is not the worst I’ve seen but definitely a step backwards from what it was.
  • Used to absolutely love this app Sep 22, 2021

    By SJLMRT
    I used to absolutely love this app, but it has become increasingly difficult to use since the newest update. First, I had to spend an hour removing books that I had read and removed weeks and months ago. Then, I had to go through the books to see which ones I had already read, because the “read” marking was gone. The library is hard to go through because it now forces the books into series, instead of allowing you to use the grid showing you all of your books in chronological order. I like the idea of following a series, but it is not greatly implemented. I would rather a “pull list” that automatically adds the new issue of a series into your library. I think my final complaint would be for after you finish a comic. It used to give you the option to remove it from your library and then either continue or exit back to your library. Now it is a couple of more clicks to exit the book, remove from library, exit to the series view, and then back out to your library. I can understand trying to make it look more modern, but when functionality goes down, it’s not worth it.

    I have previously given this App 4 out of 5, but the recent update has changed my feelings. While already having UI issues this update has made it much less intuitive. Not being able to scroll the series title by selecting the beginning letter of title, ala the right side side scroll is insane. Pulling previous feature like the add next issue also contributes to my low score. Looks nice, works terrible. It is the repository of all Marvel Comics, so there's that. Give us the old app back.

    Wish I could search by issue number, specifically, but still a superb value and experience EDIT - Update has killed all functionality. No more search by year (still no search by issue ... which is ridiculous...Google can find Marvel comic covers yet Marvel's own app can't find issues?). And oh sure, I can now download more issues, when I can find them, but I have to log in through wifi or data each time I open the app to be able to access them? What's the point? Majorly mishandled update. Shame
  • Well… it WAS good… Sep 12, 2021

    By macomposer
    I had enjoyed this app for over three years. Two weeks ago, it was announced that there would be a “major” update to the app. That turned out to be a major stripping out of much of the functionality of the app. I’ve been reading (collecting) comics for almost 35 years, and not to sound too “get off my lawn”ish, but this update didn’t seem to be for people like me. You can no longer sort between series in your library. You can, for example, only see all of the Uncanny X-men series, Avengers Vol. etc., together. This makes it hard to read issues between series. Before I could just sort my whole list by oldest to newest and basically read the issues in the same order as they were released. Now, I have to figure out the order myself and then find the issues in the series. Also, as I have oh… about 1000 comics saved to my library, sometimes I’ll read a bunch at once. But you can no longer select multiple comics at a time and remove them from your library. You can only remove one at a time! Oh, and the sort function doesn’t stick. As mentioned, I sort oldest to newest, but every time I open the app, it defaults back to Recently Saved. So, I have to keep resorting. And finally, the app feels sluggish now. It has frozen once or twice too, but mostly, when you tap a page turn, now it might take a second. Not better. Please fix, or at least bring back some of the functionality that made this app one of the best for reading comics.
  • Long time subscriber disappointed Oct 1, 2021

    UPDATE: Even more problems with the new app. How much functionality had been lost? Doesn’t remember where I left off in a comic I’m reading. Sorting still completely broken. Can’t search by month, which is essential for catching up on years of comics. I hope the cancel auto-renew function still works! Horrible update. One star added for unlimited downloads otherwise would have been one. Doesn’t really help, though, if none of the downloaded comics are the right ones when I click on them. Somehow they’re all jumbled so when I click on a downloaded issue to read, one of my other downloads opens instead. Sorting is completely botched as well. I always sort oldest publication to newest in my downloads, but each time I go back to select another issue it’s resorted itself. Like others, seriously considering canceling auto-renew until a MAJOR update fixes things. Does anyone there QC these updates before they’re released into the wild?
  • Bring Back Publication Date Search Sep 19, 2021

    By Man-Child Of Steel
    This app used to be the golden standard of comic reading apps. You could search a character, sort by oldest publication date and read every comic in chronological order for the character. Every single comic from their own series to avengers, to a what if. You could even search all marvel comics by publication date range! Wanna read the whole silver age in chronological order? Marvel unlimited got you! But no longer. With this new update, you can’t even sort the comics by oldest publication first. You have to keep scrolling for hours to get to the old stuff. And if there is an annual issue, it won’t take you to that if it’s next. You now have to google the chronological order and back out of marvel unlimited and search for it. It is a true pain. After years of praising this app and bashing DC universe how their search for comics was awful, this new marvel unlimited app is even worse. Definitely canceling my subscription and finding some other app.
  • Love the new update Oct 3, 2021

    By Maximilian L
    Loving the new update. The ability to follow characters and creators, unlimited downloads, and to finally be able to see a full list of creators and comic details with a beautiful UI. So far, the only issues I can find are: 1. The status bar is visible while reading a comic, this was previously hidden while reading. Please fix this ASAP because it’s the most annoying while using the app. 2. The navigation bar appears way too easily while reading, whereas it got out of the way when it wasn’t needed. The logic was perfect before for IMO. 3. No way to search by date or date range. This is useful for finding old comics in a certain year, etc. Keep up the great work and congrats to the team on the release. Edit: The app no longer keeps read history. Every app launch resets my progress and which comics I’ve read. Would love for this to be fixed, and a way to view my entire read history with the service.

    I am soooooo dissatisfied with this update. I got this subscription so I can read comics in chronological order as they were originally released. The crossovers and continuity was important to me. I started reading it by publication date for the early 80's, this update came through as I was finishing 1993. When reading chronological, you get full story arcs and discover titles that tied in that you never heard about. All that is lost now. I'm not sure if I'll be a customer Any longer.

    By Patrick Irish
    I used to love this but now I spend half my time trying to read cross overs in the right order. They removed sorting by date and now it's grouped by character or series so it's ton of back and forth. Despite the new app causing major problems, they won't go back to the older better app and instead want to fix this over the coming months. Bad user experience so it gets a 1 to warn others to avoid.
  • Wow! Ruined a great app in one fell stroke. Sep 17, 2021

    By Det. B
    A week ago Marvel Unlimited was the best comic reading app and comic investment on the market. It had a few glitches but it was a 5 star app and was worth every penny. I’ve had it for years and I have tried DC apps, Comixology, CloudLibrary, and Hoopla. Marvel was the best even when it was purely web-based back in the day. But the most recent update threw away everything in an attempt to be intuitive and create a “cooler” look. I had years of comics marked as read and a library full of my next comics to read. All gone in an update. Replaced with some random issues I’ve already read weeks or months ago. The search feature was so easy to use before. Now it is so user unfriendly and difficult to find issues. Don’t get me started on how difficult it is to add or delete issues from your library. I just read an issue using full screen mode (smart panel doesn’t seem to work right for some issues and isn’t my preferred view mode) and I noticed that it will not do full screen. It has a black border around the page of about half an inch. Makes everything smaller and I have the newest large iPhone model. The update is a huge step backwards. Please fix it quickly because it is making me reconsider continuing my subscription. Luckily I have a few months left before I have to renew so I hope the marketing and software geniuses behind this update get it figured out and get it functional again. Change can be good. But this was poorly conceived.

    The new update destroyed this app. Constant crashes and when it does work all I get are black pages with the Hydra symbol in the center. Will NOT be renewing my subscription and if it was possible to get a refund for my remaining months, I would take it. And now all the updates cause the app to crash everytime I open it. Zero help from the development team. "Get a new tablet" is not a good response.

    They redesigned a working app to make it shinier, and now the damn thing won't load even after reinstalling. It says to get help from a FAQ, but you have to login to see that stupid thing. There's literally no way to get help. I hate it when management decides they need to screw with something just so they feel important, they make everything worse, and then they do nothing. What fools.
  • The Redesign is a Complete Disaster Sep 16, 2021

    By robertsg3
    The old version of this app was, aside from a few obnoxious bugs, super well-designed and made sorting and organizing comics and reading lists incredibly easy. With this latest update, they’ve not only turned the app into a buggy mess, but they’ve set the user interface back about 10 years. It’s like the designers are TRYING to make reading less convenient. The new search function is borderline unusuable. The old version of the app had a variety of Browse features that made comic discovery fun and easy. Now, sometimes it’s impossible to find a specific issue even if you search for the exact title and issue #. Reading Lists are no longer easy to navigate. For some incomprehensible reason, they got rid of the handy Grid View in your library, meaning that all comics are now organized by series. This makes jumping back and forth between series (which is necessary if you’re following a reading order or reading chronologically) and absolute chore. This is all made even worse by the fact that the app is now ridden with bugs and constantly forgets which comics are “read” and “unread.” Meaning, even if you organize your unread books chronologically, the list is no longer accurate because half of the books are ones you already read months ago. Just an all-around disaster. I can only assume this redesign was some corporate mandate to make the app more mobile-friendly.

    Sadly, this great service has been ruined by one of the worst updates I have ever seen. In an attempt to make the interface looke more like Netflix they have severely hampered the search options. I can no longer easily browse through the numerous series to find a random one to read. The loss of searching by publication date is also a huge blow. I honestly wish they would rollback to the old interface and just focus on fixing bugs, it was so much better.

    New update got rid of my favorite feature, being able to search and sort by publication date. I have been using this app for years and loving it, but I always read in order by publication date. This allows an experience across multiple story arcs at the same time. Please bring back this feature quickly! Also noticed thay the Read/Not Read flag seems to be gone. This is critical to how I use this app. I'm not really interested in the app without these features.

    Just had to change my review from 5 stars to 1 with the new version of the app. It is unusable for many users. I can no longer read comics on the tablet I bought for reading comics. They say the new version of the app works on Android 6.0 and newer but I can confirm it doesn't. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, factory reset my tablet, and made sure OS was up to date. Marvel still took my money for the month but refuses to assist. I've requested help on their site like they ask but they never reply.
  • All new is all bad Oct 14, 2021

    By Athenieus
    Before the recent update to the “all new Marvel Unlimited” the app was good. Now the titles say one thing and load up another. You use to be able to add several titles to your library and they would be in chronology order and would just be all in one place. Now they are put in subfolders in a list that you have to download. That’s a broken system made by someone who doesn’t read comics. If you have 2 comics on going monthly like i.e. X-Men and Uncanny X-Men you want to have both issues of Jan together in ONE folder NOT TWO. On the old app you could add 12 issues from each and you would be good for the whole year for each and it would synch up perfect. You took that away unless you download. Why?? And there is no option to put them in a separate folder if I wanted, which you could have done that which would have been cool. I would hope you could fix this in an update but it took me over a month to get access back to my account because of the last “ALL NEW UPDATE” but I’m scared to death to update this thing. So, yeah. I’m done. PS. Tell, the curator’s to also learn to upload books in order on the back catalogues. If I can go to a torrent site and get 1-100 on a run for free Marvel can at least update their sites in reading order and not skip issues.
