Is there an IndyPlanet app?

At present, there is not. But the good news is that you don’t need one to enjoy our comics. The digital download comics at IndyPlanet are high-resolution PDFs. This means they are DRM-free, readable across all platforms and viewable in many different apps.

Perhaps the easiest way to read the comics is in your browser. Most browsers will load and display a PDF, so all you need to do is click the download link and let your browser be your reader. In full-screen mode, you can slide the page view vertically and once you get used to it, it’s a pretty nice way to read a comic on screen.

If you’re looking for non-browser alternatives, here are a few of our recommendations for each of the major platforms.

iOS

Our favorite iOS reader is Comic Zeal from Bitolithic. It’ll set you back $4.99, but in our opinion, is well worth the cost.

Of course, iBooks works great as well and is a free app.

Android

We recommend Perfect Viewer for Android.    It’s a free app, however you WILL need to add the PDF plugin  (also free) in order to view our comics.

Windows

We’re still big fans of CDisplay Ex. It’s simple, terrific, and free, but please be careful to avoid installing any bundled adware that may accompany their download.

The free Adobe Reader is a bit clunky in our opinion, but will also work fine.

Amazon

The Kindle Reader is a terrific app and a nice viewer for PDF comics.  However, you might need to side-load your comics in order to get them to display properly and consistently.
