The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 8 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible with most Android devices running on.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Negative review Good but keeps running out of memory! by anonym
Good job on the app but it often runs out of memory when reading batch rar files 2/5
Positive review Like format but keeps giving me out of memory errors. by anonym
I have plenty of ram. I have to skip the page and then come back to it. Samsung galaxy epic touch 4g. 4/5
Positive review Wonderful App by anonym
The swipe to change pages and the buttons to change pages do not always work the first or second attempts but they do eventually. Other than that, this is a wonderful app. I did have to convert some CBR/CBZ files into ZIP after some memory errors but that was quick and easy. I have tried some other comic apps. This one is the greatest by far. 5/5
Neutral review Clean controls, cbr problems by anonym
It's relatively quick and has nice control settings, but I find it often has odd memory errors in cbr files that prevent their viewing. Perfect Viewer has no problem opening the same files, but I find the usability of this app to be superior - when it works. 3/5
Negative review Frequent Error Message by anonym
Frequently crashes complaining about corrupt files. Other readers work fine on the exact same comics. 1/5
Negative review Do not download for CBR by anonym
Downloaded onto my Galaxy S3 w/ jelly bean to read CBR files. Constantly gives error message stating no memory left to display file. I now use Comic Rack free. No issues. 1/5
Negative review Constant crashes by anonym
This reader is almost completely useless in my Asus TF101 tablet, since it is contantly crashing with the "not enough memory" error. The only way I can prevent this error from happening is by reducing the image resolution in the settings, but then the image quality is so low that the image displays pixelated. 1/5
Neutral review Constant out of momory crashes by anonym
In portrait or landscape mode reading trade paperback .cbr's causes constant crashes of files that when used on my computer read just fine. This is REALLY too bad, as it is a nice interface. Maybe it is just the size of some of these trade paperbacks that throws the app as smaller 45-60 page cbr's work, but if that was the case then using low memory mode would have had a positive effect (it hasn't). Another annoyance (though easily remedied) was the swipe menu. I'm giving 3 out of 5 stars in hope that they sort the crashing out on the free version...that might even convince me to buy the premium version (hint, hint). 3/5
Positive review Nice, but has some problems. by anonym
Works fairly well. Most comic book archives open and preloading makes sure you can go through them quickly. Has a good amount of options to tweak your experience. One point deduction because it has some bugs and improvement points that have been around forever: I get errors on some archives, and I can never see the full error because it's always cut off ("Can not open archive. This generally happens because ..." Because what??). The main menu always shows the logo in big, and then the last two archives opened. There's so much more you can do with this space. When you zoom, it seems to remember that zoom level for every *other* page, rather than every page. 4/5
Negative review Out of memory error by anonym
It's quite useless as I always get the out of memory error eventually, which doesn't happen with other apps. 1/5
Neutral review Too many OOPS messages. Highly annoying. by anonym
I can't believe that a 32G, lightly loaded ASUS Transformer has a problem unzipping a CBR and failing to render a 15k JPG file. My desktop never has problems with the same files. 3/5
Negative review Jeez by anonym
Love it when its working but I can't read like fifty percent of the comics I'm downloading cause I get the oops error every time I open it 2/5
Negative review Love the format, hate the stability by anonym
As I said, great format and user controls. But almost every other page of any comic I get either a memory error or a corrupted data error. Fix that or this app is useless. I like the features just wish I could actually read through an entire comic with out some BS. Will be switching to a different app and uninstalling this until it is made useable. 2/5
Negative review Never got to know it for real by anonym
I had some CBR files, which it didn't open. I know, the developer states that CBR files are still in beta, so no problem really, but I had to search for another app and I uninstalled this one. Sorry... 2/5
Positive review Great App, was better before the latest updates by anonym
I would recommend you convert your files to CBZ rather than CBR in order to avoid the out of memory error. Great app, easy to use. It was better before recent updated though which brought in adds, and changed the page browser screen to a black page (before the comic would be in the backround). Still very good though. 4/5
Negative review May have gotten higher stars if.. by anonym
Unfortunately it was stuck on one screen without the ability to check for comic or start reading...perhaps this is due to having the Samsung illusion idk.. 2/5
Neutral review Glitches make comics unreadable by anonym
I tried to open 2 comics and both had lots of static at the bottom of the comics. I thought it might be the comics but I then opened the comics with perfect viewer and they looked just fine. If this glitch wasn't their it would be good but it just looks terrible and ruins the comic. 3/5
Negative review Couldn't make it through one comic. by anonym
The UI is pretty nice, I guess. Problem is, it couldn't get me through a single comic - the same "Oops" error that everyone else seems to be getting. Perfect Viewer has been working out well enough. It's certainly not "Perfect", but I can actually read my comics, so it's close enough for now. 2/5
Neutral review Slightly better than Onion Comic Viewer by anonym
In my quest to find a functional comic viewer I ran across ACV. While this program has better page and comic selection navigation it suffers with numerous crashes, just the same as Onion Comic Viewer. It especially fails with graphic novels, which are typically larger files than regular comics. It starts to read until it reaches "maximum memory" (about page 32) then crashes every time I tried to open to the next page. This occurred at almost the same point with larger comics. I have since moved to Comic Rack which has not crashed once, can read very large files and has amazing navigation features. 3/5
Positive review Great little comic viewing app. by anonym
Does the job nicely. Simple unobtrusive controls. Clear display. 7 inch tablet is just big enough for reading comics without eyestrain, and it's easy to zoom in to the detail. 4/5
Negative review Way too many "out of memory" errors by anonym
A quick search reveals that this memory issue is very common. Avoid until this bug is fixed! 1/5
Negative review Went from great to horrible by anonym
This used to be a top notch viewer bbut recently it has become unusable with no fix in sight. Hopefully, it will be fixed, until then I'll be using another. Also, I cannot uninstall it. Keep selecting 'uninstall' but nothing happens. 2/5
Positive review amazing by anonym
i have been using this viewer for years. i am utterly impressed. however, the drain on the battery is the only thing that keeps me from using it often. 4/5
Positive review awesome by anonym
this app is just great... reads .cbr files just fine, but the zooming is really tedious... 4/5
Negative review Out of memory by anonym
It used to work great, but now it runs out of memory when opening larger (10 meg+ files). Other comic readers open the comics fine. Also for ICS, it should remove the bottom bar when in full screen mode. 1/5
Neutral review Not bad but frustrating by anonym
Used this app for a while but keep getting "unable to load" error messages. I'm switching to perfect viewer 3/5
Positive review Good but could use fixing by anonym
After a while I get a lot of errors saying the app is out of memory which fix themselves erratically and unpredictably so I can never read many files at one go. Other than that I enjoy the app's clean interface and ease of use. 4/5
Neutral review Blurry by anonym
Text is slightly blurry even when i zoom in. Even the menu items seem to have a slight double image. It's odd, though it works. Just wish it was sharper. *Droid 4 3/5
Negative review by anonym
I have a new nexus tablet and paid for the no ads version of this app. It only views about 20% of comics I attempt to open. Do not waste precious memory on this defective app. Use perfect viewer, it is appropriately named and has yet to give me a memory error. You have been warned. 1/5
Negative review Heavily gesture driven by anonym
In order to use this software, you will have to look in the custom controls to learn what gestures mean what and be able to make these gestures (and not make these gestures) dependably. A few extra ghost controls for things like bringing up the menu would have been nice. 2/5
Positive review good controls, bad processing by anonym
the controls are great. customizable single and double tap which make it the most fun comics reading app to use. unfortunately, it is also the only app that is not able to open double pages most of the time and crashes on them. also, page changes are relatively slow. i have to say that if it weren't for the crashes i would have continued using it over the competition. too bad... 4/5
Negative review Garbage by anonym
If it could do anything but crash I'd have given it at least 3 stars, but no, all it does is crash. Perfect Viewer is FAR more stable and better all around. 1/5
Negative review Great app, except for with CBR by anonym
On most CBR files, it'll throw an error about being out of memory. Doesn't matter if you're on a device with 512mb, or 2gb of RAM, and will always do it on the same pages. Open it up in another reader, on the same device, zero problems. Long time user, but this has just got to be too much. 2/5
Positive review Pretty Close to Perfect. by anonym
This app is way better than any comic book reader I've ever used. It's small, it operates fast, and the interface is incredibly clean and simple. Literally my only complaint is the "Oops, Sorry couldn't read" error, which I'm not entirely sure is because of the app. Fantastic application, I recommend to anyone who takes their comics on the go. 4/5
Positive review Solution to low memory error by anonym
This app is not to blame for that error, I received the error on a few files, after some research, it's linked to the technology being used to read the comics. CBR files are the issue. Phones and tablets have trouble with the way they are read. Easiest solution out there: Download a program like (ComicRack) for windows or mac, find your CBR file in the program by using their explorer, right click the file, choose Export Books, then select convert file to CBZ. CBZ files are working fine. no error. There is another solution where you extract the image files from the CBR file by converting it to a regular ZIP file (warning, it's not as simple as changing the extesion to .zip, that will break the file, use "Calibre" or another program), the ComicRack way requires less time, and you can select multiple files to convert at once. Hope this helps, I'm enjoying being able to read on my tablet. 5/5
Negative review Doesn't work on cbr files by anonym
CBR is supposedly supported, it is nog working right though. It always crashes on cbr comics on my galaxy tablet (2) and seldom works on my Galaxy S4. No updates to fix this. 1/5
Neutral review Decent Reader, Not for Archives by anonym
It usually runs out of memory when it comes to archives in general. If it does open the archive, then there is a chance for corrupted images full of artifacts. The back button doesn't behave like it does in other apps, causing mistaken exits highly likely. In the file manager, make it go up a level. In the comic viewer, make it, by default, go back a page or exit the comic, but stay within the app. 3/5
Negative review No updates? Nothing? by anonym
I've downgraded my review from 5 to 2 stars because I'm having to use another app for cbr files. How long is it going to take to get cbr support out of beta? This would be the best comic reader out there if only the dev would sort out the issues. Until then, I'll be using a reader that actually works. 2/5
Neutral review Overall fairly good by anonym
Recent changes have improved quality greatly. Took me a bit to figure out how to get the menu up and modify the settings. Now that I have it set to my preferences it serves my needs perfectly. Many CBR files have issues in this app, yet work in all other apps. 3/5
Negative review Wont open files by anonym
Keep tryinh to read comics on it and this DAM MESSAGE KEEPS COMING UP 'Oops can't open file may be due to low memory try closing acv and opening it after a while' I HAVE 2GIGS AND I CLOSED ACV FOR THREE WEEKS AND IT WOULDN'T OPEN FIX THIS ~SAMSUNG Galaxy S2 2/5
