Graphic.ly Releases Stunning Alpha Application

Congratulation to the team at Graphic.ly for releasing an alpha version of their upcoming desktop application powered by Adobe AIR. If you are or ever have been a fan of comic books, you simply must download this application and take it for a spin.

Features of the desktop application include:

  • An application store that allows you to browse and purchase comic books (several are currently offered for free!)
  • An activity feed that displays what others in the Graphic.ly community are reading and rating
  • A built-in achievement system that recognizes users for discovering new features
  • A beautiful, full-screen interface for navigating the pages and individual frames of a comic book
  • A social feature that allows you to write comments on individual frames that others in the community can read

The Graphic.ly team describes what they are building as a "a cutting-edge community and digital content delivery platform for comic books, graphic novels and other forms of publishing." I am looking forward to seeing feature iterations of the application; especially as Graphic.ly becomes available on new types of devices.

  2. To be honest this isn’t what I was expecting, and I’m a little disappointed. I expected to see content authoring. I thought I was going to have fun making my own comic books.

    It’s just a viewer. That said, it’s a nicely sugar-coated viewer. And I see that it’s already generated some interest. I’m wondering if an application like e2publish, or similar could export to your file format. I need to look into the technical considerations.
