    Here's a quick Tutorial on using the comic download function within iComic...

    How to use the download function in the Appstore iComic

    1. Set up a personal server. (may not work on Vista)

    1. Go to www.badblue.com and download the badblue personal webserver (or direct DL from here).
    2. Install the software.
    3. Once installed it should open up the server window in your internet browser.
    4. Go to the 'Manage' tab (this tab has to be opened in Internet Explorer).
    5. Go to the 'setup folders tab'.
    6. In 'name the directory' type 'a'
    7. Create a directory on your desktop. Add your comic zips in here.
    8. Back in badblue click the browse button next to the 'Select any file in the folder' and navigate to one of the comic zips in the folder on your desktop. Then click the 'Add virtual directory' button followed by the 'Save changes' button.
    9. Click the 'Manage' tab again followed by 'invite friends to your PC'. An email window will open with your IP address.
    10. From the iComic index menu select 'Edit' -> 'Add' and type in http:// followed by the IP address from the email followed by /a/ and finally the name of your comic and it's zip extension (e.g. http://192.167.1.4/a/mycomic.zip).
    11. Press 'Get Zip' and all being well your comic should transfer over, signaled by a spinning wheel and a kick back to the index once it's downloaded. If it doesn't work then check you have the correct address.

    2. Set up on a Direct Download file share server.

    1. I use the server at www.ripway.com. Sign up for a free 30MB account there.
    2. Go to 'My Files' -> 'Upload Files' and select your comic zip file(s).
    3. Once done the files link will be provided for you. Enter this in the iComic 'Add' screen and hit 'Get Zip'.

    There is landscape - if you've searched 'landscape' and 'iComic', or gone to Studangerous' thread you'd know that you have to activate it by being in the main 'select comic' menu. And then to switch back to portrait, you have to be back in that menu.

    I don't want to screw around with webservers. Can someone point out where the comic folder is located now so I can just use iFunbox?

    It's in the /var/mobile/Applications/WhateverFolderIt'sIn/Documents

    If you're not JB, you can't access it.
