Ultimate comic book iPhone and iPod Touch app gets free feature update

The ComicBookBin iPhone app helps comic book collectors find comic book conventions, locate nearby comic book stores, as well as provide access to over 10,000 articles published about comics, toys, movies and books since 2002.

The global store locator has been enhanced with several search options. Clicking on a city's name in the store locator opens a map featuring all local stores and your location. Added to the existing English, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese store locator searches is support for Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Farsi, Filipino, Finnish, Hebrew, Irish, full Japanese, full Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Swahili, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

Several enhancements were added to the article browsing features. ComicBookBin 1.5 now launches in portrait mode with small thumbnails in the newsreader next to each article.

iPhone app reviewer Connor Turner of yycApps writes, "one of the beauties of the Comic Book Bin App is the interface. It's quite mind blowing the amount of information stored within this tiny little app. But the developers of the Comic Book Bin have done a great job utilizing the iPhone's portrait and landscape views, to allow the user to tailor the search results interface for their own benefits. Users can either browse through a long list of results in portrait mode or if they switch to the landscape mode, they can flick through a carousel of thumbnail images of their query. Either way, it's a great design feature and one that makes the overall experience that much better."

The user interface continues to be one of the top qualities of ComicBookBin. "Few iPhone and iPod Touch apps feature full support for both portrait and landscape modes," said Comic Book Bin publisher and app developer Hervé St-Louis.
