    Hello peeps. You may or may not have seen me around. Anyway I just thought I would bring attention to the wonder of reading comics on your UNJAILBROKEN 2G iPod Touch. This app has been around for some time but is hidden away on the Jailbreak Apps forum and many of you may not realise it is now on the appstore. Anyway, for those of you who are new to all this iPod Touch stuff I give you iComic!

    Reading Comics On Your 2G iPod Touch

    Unfortunately for comic fans, iTunes converts all photos (or jpeg comic images) to a downscaled resolution when transferring to your iPhone or iPod touch so comic jpegs are unreadable. iComic overcomes this and utilises the touch-screen zoom, landscape view and accelerometer to provide a great portable electronic comic book reader and zipped image viewer. Welcome to the world of iComic.

    Enjoy! Note also that if you can get hold of a pdf to jpeg conversion program you can convert your pdfs for viewing under iComic too! Bigger files sizes but much more manageable than under any of the currently available file transfer/document viewers available for the 2G.

    Sure dude. But I think your thread is misplaced? Or not?

    No not misplaced... I'm just giving you 2G owners the heads up as I have just relaesaed the FAQ for the Appstore version of iComic and you may not have seen the iComic thread in the Jailbreak section... The full original thread with 100k+ views is linked at the bottom of the first post...

    Nope I have nothing to do with the developer apart from being in contact with him since we found this nice little Japanese icomic.app for the jailbroken 1.1.1 iPod Touch nearly two years ago. If you go to the 'other' icomic thread that I mentioned you'll see what 'ım talking about. I'm just a die hard iComic fanboy and thought some 2G users may not know about this great functionality that can be added to their iPod Touches. Seeing as how I just released an FAQ for this app a few days ago I thought some may find it interesting to have it posted here too.

    If you'd read to the end of the first post you may accuse me of being a promoter for Stanza too

    p.s. if you can be bothered to read this far also, the 'other' thread has some useful links for comics in the 4th post...
