Comixology Update Their Apps – No More In-App Purchases On iOS

Is this a hangover from Amazon? Or Something else? For me it does take a little away from the ease of purchase.



We’ve made changes to our Google Play Android Comics App so please, update to version 3.6. In this new version we have a new comiXology in-app purchase system and a great new cart feature, one of our most requested features.

In the new app, you may be prompted to update your payment information to continue purchasing books. This is a one-time action after which you can purchase inside the app.

iPhone & iPad:

We have introduced a new comiXology iPhone and iPad Comics App and are retiring the old one. All your purchased books will be readable in the new app once you’ve downloaded it and taken the following steps:

  • If you don’t have a comiXology account, go to to create one, or create one in the original Comics app!
  • In the original Comics app, log into your comiXology account.
  • Sync your in-app purchases to your comiXology account by tapping the Restore button on the Purchases tab.
  • Download the new comiXology app. This will be your new home downloading and reading comics.
  • Start shopping on New web purchases will appear in the “In Cloud” tab in our new app.
  • If you have comics downloaded in the old app, no problem! You can continue to read them there without re-downloading to the new app.

Last, but not least, to thank our loyal customers and ease this transition, we are offering a $5 eGift Card credit to all those who have purchased through the comiXology platform in the past. This credit will be automatically applied throughout the day to those accounts who are eligible and all of those eligible have 30 days to purchase books with that credit. Enjoy!

Thanks, everyone!
comiXology Team

PS: Additional information can be found at our 3.6 Android and iOSFAQs.

Those FAQ’s:

  1. Can I buy comics inside of the iOS app?

No, but you can search for and buy an even greater selection of comics and graphic novels via Once purchased, you’ll be able to sync your comic or graphic novel to your iOS device from the Purchases tab.

2. Can I have Series or Sale Alerts inside of the iOS app?

No, but you can sign up for our email newsletter that will give you a heads up about great sales as well as subscribing to your favorite books on When you subscribe to a comic series, we add the latest book in that series to your account the day of release and it will be ready for download inside of your app.
