Comixology: CMX HD & The Release List

Comixology have released details of their new HD app for the new iPad!

With CMX-HD check out the highest resolution comics available

No upgrade fee or price hike for CMX-HD content

March 20th – 2012 New York, NY – ComiXology, the world’s largest digital comics platform available on iPhoneiPadAndroidKindle Fire and the Web with over 50 million comic and graphic novel downloads to date, is proud to announce a new High Definition Comics format — CMX-HD — to their award-winning iOS application just in time for the debut of the new iPad and taking advantage of the new resolution capabilities of the device. In addition to supporting this new, higher resolution comic book format, comiXology is also bringing social integration to their iOS app making it easier than ever for friends to share their favorite comics through Facebook, Twitter and Email.

CMX-HD comics and graphic novels will be a free upgrade for customers that have previously purchased content that is now available in the new format, with comiXology offering the new file format at the same price as previous content.

“We knew the moment Apple announced the new iPad with its stunning Retina display that we needed to meet the challenge of delivering the highest resolution comic content in the industry — and with CMX-HD we did just that,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We know our fans will love this new format and it’s fantastic to be able to deliver CMX-HD at the same time we’re integrating social to the app. After hitting 50 million standard definition comic and graphic novel downloads recently, we look forward to our next 50 million high-definition downloads being driven through social sharing.”

Debuting today alongside the delivery of the new new iPad, CMX-HD content will inititally be available for a select group of comic books and graphic novels. “We will be working over the next few months to fill out the entire CMX-HD catalog,” said Marc Goldberg, comiXology CTO.

With Facebook sharing in 3.1, comic fans will be able to post their reviews and thoughts about comics they’ve discovered in the store, comics they just read, and their own collection on their wall or timeline.

With Twitter sharing, which uses iOS 5’s built-in tweeting functionality, titles are automatically placed in a tweet, ready to be broadcast to all your twitter followers. Fans will have full editing capability of their messages and even be able to input their location data.

With Email sharing, fans will be able to send comic covers and descriptions directly to friends in a formatted HTML email conveniently using Apple’s built-in Mail app.

The Comics by comiXology 3.1 iOS app also includes several updates to enhance the experience of reading comics and graphic novels on the platform. Here is a comprehensive listing for the update:

CMX-HD Comics

Now featuring High Definition capable comics for the new iPad — with twice the resolution. Look for the CMX-HD badge in the store to find these HD comics and graphic novels.

Facebook Sharing

Finally, users also have the option of sharing comments via an individual’s Facebook wall or Timeline.

iOS 5 Integrated Twitter Sharing

Comics now uses the new Twitter APIs on iOS 5 to enable social commenting on any Comic Book.

iOS Email Sharing

Users also have the option of sharing via Email.  The Email share view displays the iOS app email compose view, including an HTML formatted email.

In all cases, including Twitter, if no network is available then the user will not see any share options.  If an account is not yet set up for the chosen share method, then Comics will alert the user to setup that particular sharing account.

The “Read Now” Button

Immediately after purchasing a comic book that begins downloading, users will be presented with a “Read Now” button (replacing the former “Downloading” button).  Now users can begin reading comic books without waiting for the entire download to complete.

Miscellaneous Bug Fixes & Stability Improvements 

Additionally to the above feature enhancements we have made substantial improvements to bugs, crashes and stability in the Comics App.

Then they released what was going to be in HD!
