David Gillette 09/27/2012 Reviews

Madefire, creators of comics for the iPad featuring their exclusive motion tool, have announced that they will now make their content available for the iPhone and iPod Touch devices. They will be officially launching the new app at the New York Comic Con (NYCC) with founders Liam Sharp, Ben Wolstenholme, and Eugene Walden with a special appearance by Treatment creator and comic legend Dave Gibbons (Watchmen).

“Feedback about Madefire has been extraordinary,” said Dave Gibbons. “Mobile devices are our constant companions—so it makes sense that people crave a reading experience created not for print, but specifically for digital.”Madefire

This follows on the heels of their 5-star rated iPad app which includes the titles Mono, Captain Stone is Missing…, Houses of the Holy, The Engine, and The Irons.

The new app is available exclusively on iOS, free in the Apple App Store, and optimized for both the iPhone 5’s stunning, larger Retina display, as well as for iOS 6 with Facebook integration, which makes it even easier for users to share what they’re reading. The app is also available for iPhones 3GS, 4, 4S, and for 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch.

“In June we launched for iPad because of the bigger screen size,” explained Madefire Co-founder Ben Wolstenholme, “but in our recent development, we have been stunned by reading Madefire on the iPhone, especially now with the new iPhone 5’s larger Retina screen—it might even be more exciting!”
