Comic Book iOS App Xcode Project

Comic Book iOS App Xcode Project

The Comic Book App project is an exciting new way to publish digital comics on the App Store, without the need to learn how to develop an App. Create an iPad App from your digital comic book in minutes!

Ready-made Xcode project. Add your own JPEG content to build your own iOS app, ready to sell on the App Store.

  • Loads pages from image files, easily add pages to the project, no coding required.
  • Simply save your pages as .jpg files and the Comic Book App will display them in sequence. (page1,jpg, page2.jpg, page3.jpg, etc)
  • Tap-to-zoom, adapt the zoom level to suit your comic, ...again, no coding required!
  • Supports high-resolution images for great detail even when zoomed. (up to 1536x1920)
  • Optional background music, simply add a file named background.mp3, easy!
  • Swipe between pages, or use on-screen buttons.
  • Quickly jump between pages with the on-screen menu.
  • Link to your website or other apps from the on-screen menu.
  • Animated page transitions, and app launch animation.
  • Supports an unlimited number of pages. Example comic book included.
  • iOS 7 and iOS 8 compatible

New in v1.3:

  • Social sharing feature allows users to tweet or post on Facebook directly from your app.
  • Include bonus wallpapers (just name them wallpaper1.jpg, wallpaper2.jpg, etc)
  • New modern style user interface with full support for 4-inch Retina display on iPhone 5 and iPod touch. New fullscreen mode on iPad (hide the UI).

Please note, this project requires Xcode 4.5 or above. You can download Xcode free from the Mac App Store.

"THANK YOU! Can't believe it. This is exactly the solution we needed, as learning to program was killing us" Jeremy Burtenshaw

"Just wanted to say thanks, its a great project. I'd been quoted £550 for someone to build the app for me. Now for less than that I've bought a Mac, joined Apple's developer program, bought your code and submitted the app. I can obviously carry on making more apps now too." Gary Solomon

"I want to send you all my appreciation for the template, it is excellent and more than easy to configure. I can tell you that it has taken me 3 days in total to build an app (one day to make all the steps to publish it because I am completely new to Mac computers)" Mugur Neacsu

"Chris's responsiveness and customer service is so rare these days. I’m amazed every time I contact him! SO much appreciated." Josh Coen

  • App cannot be submitted to app store. EBooks must be submitted to iBookStore

    This looks interesting... I have 20 comics I've done. Does this allow in app purchases of other comics?
  • PS Paul Sagor 1 year ago
    Do you get source code with the application, or is just a object library that you populate content into? Does it support landscape now? If you purchase the iPad version, and later decide to buy the full version, can you get a discount for the difference?
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      Yes, full source code is available so that you can make custom modifications or add new features. The app is designed for portrait comic books, landscape pages will work fine but will not look ideal. I believe Binpress allow customers to simply pay the difference if they want to upgrade their licence, but please check that with Binpress support.

      I looked at the apps that have used it, they look good. Do you have your own screen shots so I can see the user interface elements? Are the UI elements configurable without code changes, i.e. graphics, text, etc. Do you have some docs to read, to see what you can do?
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      Here are some screens of the unedited project with the sample content included: iPad: iPhone: The UI elements are all set up within a .xib file, so can be edited visually within Xcode.

    Hi, I am looking for an application for theory learning in order to get a drivers licence. Do you think Comic Book will be a good choice? Thanks, Lior
