Google Play Books App Updated with Better Support for Comics

14 November, 2015 Google





Reading a book on a small screen is not easy. Digital books can scale text according to screen size to ease the problem, but in case of PDF files and comic books which have fixed page size it won't be possible to scale according to screen size without having negative impact on the content.


Google recently announced an update to its Play Books app specifically designed to address this issue. Now Comic book lovers will have better reading experience in their favourite smartphone and tablets.


It focuses on better navigation by implementing a new vertical scrolling feature for comic books in landscape layout. All you need to do is flip the device on its side and scroll through the complete story using vertical swipes. Apart from this Google has also made it easy to search and discover new comics. The redesigned app now organizes series' by the editions, volumes and issues. You will be able to see all the individual issues and synopsis simply by tapping on a series. According to a senior product manager from Google, there would be personalized recommendations for new comics and series to the users.


On this occasion, for a limited period of time Google is offering some digital issues for free. In total they are giving away 44 comics including some of the all-time favourites like Batman and Spawn. According to Google, every Thursday there will be additional deals.
