After a very long waiting time, Manga Rock 2.0 is finally available. Here’s the full release note:
For version 2.0, we are bringing the awesomeness back to Manga Rock! We have worked really hard to make the manga reading experience on Manga Rock even better in this HUGE update. A whole bunch of new features were added, many annoying bugs were squashed, so the app just feel much more solid now. Manga Rock is now a completely different beast.
1. PERFORMANCE! Many parts of the app have been significantly finetuned, making it much more stable and zippier! You will see HUGE difference when populating the manga library for the first time.
2. CATEGORIES! First seen on Manga Rock MF, now you can also look for your favorite martial arts or romance manga effortlessly.
3. PULL-TO-REFRESH. No more relaunching the app to receive updates. Just pull the catalog, and release! Poof! Updates! Magic!
4. MORE SOCIAL! Tell My Friend now includes Twitter.
5. FIVE CONCURRENT DOWNLOADS! Yes, you heard that right, we have successfully ported the famed manga download manager from Manga Rock Unity into the palm of your hand. Manga Rock now support up to 5 chapter downloading simultaneously. It even works in the background. Oh, get ready to be surprised at the downloading speed!
6. UPGRADED MANGA VIEWER. You can now swipe to next or previous chapter, making the reading experience much more fluid.
7. We did some minor UI changes to the manga chapter list. Chapters are now displayed in descending order. You can now “Download All” of the chapters with just one tap. You’re very welcome!
8. We have modified the “Info” tab to make it much more usable. Now you will be able to read the latest “News”, or send us a “Support” email right within the app. We have also added badges for both the “Info” tab and the application itself.
NOTES: As we have changed Manga Rock substantially, normally that would mean that you would lose all of your favorite, recent and downloaded manga. But we are nice, so we have worked even harder so that you still have Favorite and Downloaded manga (moved to Archived). Unfortunately, we can’t keep your old Recent, so do keep an eye on that. Also, we have migrated to a newer, much faster server so that you can receive updates way faster than ever!
MINOR ISSUE: Completed series is displayed as “ongoing”, however, the filter is still working correctly as intended. This bug will be fixed in the next version.
Again, thank you everyone for your awesome support, without you, there wouldn’t be Manga Rock!
There you go, it’s time to download and upgrade your copy of Manga Rock. Don’t forget to leave us glowing reviews if you love Manga Rock!
