There’s plenty to tickle your funny bone in the GoComics Entertainment app. In this comics inspired app you’ll discover old-time favorites such as Peanuts, Garfield, Doonesbury, Calvin and Hobbes, B.C., and more on your iPhone and iPad.
You’ll find other awarding winning cartoons as well, to include Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoons by Michael Ramirez, Nick Anderson and Steve Sack. In addition to the tried and true comic strip stars, there’s a spotlight section introducing fresh and aspiring cartoonists, and even a Spanish only comics section.
There’s a nice mix of cartoon content in the GoComics app and because the GoComics app is the mobile version the the GoComics website, you’ll enjoy “the most popular comic strips and cartoons in the world and the web’s largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips and web comics.” Another nice aspect is that most comics are updated daily.
The comic content in GoComics is set up into 4 main areas: Comics, Editorial, Sherpa and Espanol. It’s easy to search and find any comic strip by name in the A-Z listing. My favorite feature in this app is the monthly calendar feature. When you’re viewing a specific comic strip, you have the option to jump around to any date on the calendar and view that comic strip from that date. Also, this Entertainment app gives you access to 20+ years of comic strip back issues. You can also easily share comics through email and text/SMS.
GoComics is a free app and allows access to a bunch of comic strip/cartoon humor, but if you want to be able to comment, or manage and customize your own collection of comics, you’ll need to set up a free account. And if you want to take it a step further, the Premium Pro membership offers ad free viewing and special email delivery of your personalized comics content. These perks will cost you an in app purchase of $0.99 for 30 days or 1 year for $11.99.
Overall, GoComics is a great app and a great value. The only real downside to this free app was the noticeable lag time between viewing comic strips, but it’s a small price to pay for a good laugh every day.
