While Amazon's Comixology app has been shut down for Windows 8.1, another digital comic book service, Madefire, is making a bigger effort to support Microsoft's platforms. It has just updated its app to support Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
Madefire offers users a way to purchase and download digital comics from major publishers like DC Comics, IDW, Dark Horse and others (sadly, Marvel Comics is not yet offered). The Windows 10 app includes support for Live Tiles, Cortana and Continuum for smartphones. Here are some of its other features:
- All new characters and stories are available exclusively on Madefire with the download of the free app. What have been coined "myths of the 21st century", these featured original titles from Madefire have been forged by comic book legends – including Dave Gibbons, Bill Sienkiewicz, Mike Carey and Liam Sharp.
- Immerse yourself in new worlds, 360 panoramic views, music, sound effects and motion transport you deep into story worlds. You control the pace at which stories unfold on-screen.
- Experience digital-first stories created to take full advantage of the power of Window's devices - Not scanned-in print episodes.
