This one goes out to all you comic book/graphic novel lovers!!! Madefire announced today a major update to its revolutionary comics app, bringing it to iPhone and iPod touch for the first time. The Madefire app, which delivers a fully-immersive, episodic comics reading experience, is now optimized for the brilliant 4-inch Retina display on iPhone 5 and supports Facebook single sign-on in iOS 6. The app is also available for iPhones 3GS, 4, 4S, and for 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch.
Madefire’s distinctive format features episodic, ‘short-burst’ (10-15 minute) reading, and utilizes sound, music and motion, as well as special effects, like parallax and panorama, to transport readers deep into story worlds. Madefire is also growing its catalogue of free titles and weekly releases of new episodes, giving readers even more opportunities to explore ‘short-burst’ reading. The app also includes a new ‘Feed’ feature, which gives readers an inside look into Madefire titles and creators, with special features such as ‘The Making of’ and sneak peeks of upcoming releases.
