Comics by ComiXology

My thanks to ComiXology for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Comics, their new iPhone app. It’s a combination comic book store, reader, and library, all on your iPhone or iPod Touch. You can browse and purchase new comics using the new iPhone OS 3.0 in-app purchasing system. The app itself is just 99 cents, and comes with over 30 free comics.

Check out the screencast guided to tour to see how it works. The reading interface is very well-designed, including thoughtful features like the option to auto-rotate the display depending on the orientation of the current panel. Very clever design, and a perfect example of in-app purchasing.
