Amazon has introduced comiXology’s acclaimed Guided View technology to digital comic book and graphic novel reading Kindle iOS customers. Woo! Comic fans can now enjoy an immersive, cinematic reading experience with “Guided View” on Kindle iOS, that also includes delivering comics in HD. “Guided View” integrates technology from the comiXology. Available today on Kindle iOS, “Guided View” will be coming soon to both Android and Fire OS.
How do I get Guided View on my Kindle Comics on iOS?
Kindle Comics that have the Kindle & comiXology badge on Amazon will have an enhanced Guided View experience. If you’ve already bought these Kindle Comics in the past, you can head on over to Manage My Content And Devices first to trigger the update. You’ll see a button that says Update Available if your book has a Guided View update ready to go. Once you press that, it will update your Kindle Comic to get the Guided View experience!
Does this mean comiXology is being phased out? Is the comiXology app is going away?
Nope! We are independently operated but like to share the wealth (Guided View) with Kindle, so new fans can experience it. One big comics-reading family.
Should we expect the comiXology app to eventually go away?
Amazon strongly believes in comiXology and vice versa! We aren’t going anywhere. J
Does it matter to you if I buy on Amazon or comiXology?
Nope! We want people to read comics, period. So buy ‘em where you love ‘em.
When can I move my comiXology comics into Kindle?
No word on that, but we will certainly pass along your feedback!
Go ahead and give Guided View on Kindle Comics a shot and let us know what you think!
