Some excellent news, Diamond and iVerse Media have been building up to this for a while. You will be able to get these on your iOS and Android devices.
iVerse Media and Diamond Comics Distributors are pleased to announce the “Digital Comics Reader” Application for iOS and Android platforms.
The app was announced today during the 2012 ComicsPRO meeting in Dallas, TX.
This new App will work in conjunction with the larger, previously announced Diamond Digital Initiative to provide retailers with a complete digital eco-system for their stores.
The Diamond Digital initiative will empower retailers to sell digital comics both in-store and online. Customers will be able to shop through thousands of digital comics any time of day or night on retailer websites, or to purchase digital codes along with their print comics when they visit their local comic shop. The program will be available as a plug-n-play site for retailers to easily begin selling digital content, and also in a robust API for tech-savvy retailers to completely customize their online digital sales.
“By adding the â€˜Digital Comics Readerâ€™ App into the Diamond Digital program, weâ€™re completely removing our own digital store.” said iVerse CEO Michael Murphey. “This is a much cleaner solution for retailers and will give them the same kinds of tools companies like Amazon and Barnes & Noble are using to sell digital content on these devices. Weâ€™re in the final stages of testing, and we canâ€™t wait to launch this thing.”
“Weâ€™re very excited about this development,” said Director of Diamond Digital Dave Bowen, “and look forward to working with comic retailers interested in selling digital content.”
