VIZ Manga App for iPhone and iPod Touch


I’ve previously written about how much I like the VIZ Manga App for iPad. VIZ recently added support for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Once you have purchased the content on one device, you can download it on the other one without having to pay twice. This is a great feature that makes digital manga even more convenient. Though the reading experience is much better on the iPad because of the large screen size, at times I don’t have my iPad with me, and I appreciate being able to read the same manga on my iPhone.

The app is free, and there are some free sample manga chapters to download for it, so it’s worth trying.
