The new model for Shonen Jump is exactly what I’d been hoping for a company to do for years; create a affordable, convenient alternative to the shadier online manga sites. Unfortunately, while the 2 bucks a month model they’ve set up is very reasonable considering all the content available, it’s iOS apps on iPhone and iPad are both fairly buggy. First off, I had problems originally with loading pages from a new chapter, and would have to scroll through a few black pages before getting the pages to load. I’d then try downloading the pages to see if that would fix the problem. It did, but instead of loading problems, downloaded chapters would have problems with pages from previous chapters replacing the correct pages in the current chapter. And in a baffling oversight, you can’t manually delete downloaded chapters, and instead must wait until they’re automatically removed after 7 days. Viz has a great model here, but a disappointing product.
I want to start this off by saying I love the new subscription service. It’s nice that I can support the creators of some of my favorite manga series; however, the app lacks a couple of vital features. The first feature missing is an indicator on where you left off in any given series. This is practically a must have in an app that contains multiple series with hundreds of chapters. The second feature missing is a “favorites” or “following” section. The only thing keeping me from having to re-search for all of the manga I want to read is whether I have it purchased or downloaded, but what if I’m not able/don’t remember to get on within seven days and download another chapter? All of my downloads will be automatically removed, and I will instantly lose track of everything I was reading. This is also a big inconvenience for those who don’t want to download anything, as they will have to search for the manga they want to read each time they open the app. Again, I love the fact that I can easily support creators for their hard work, but the features missing here are pretty much standard for other manga apps. In terms of organization, SJ’s only redeeming feature is it has a search bar...
There’s no arguing that the amount of manga on offer her for $2 a month is a great value, and goes a long way to putting the putting the “pirate” sites out of business. That said, the reader software is incredibly lacking in features that are commonplace on the other “pirate” manga readers. The biggest fault is ZERO amount of tracking as to where you have left off on a chapter/series that you’ve been reading. Every time you open the app, you have to remember where you stopped. This isn’t a huge deal if you are only reading one series at a time, but with multiples? Forget it. There should definitely be a HISTORY tab on the bottom of the main menu screen. In addition, there should be CLOUD SAVES as to which series/chapters I’ve read, so that I can seamlessly switch between reading on phone and iPad. That aside, I would love for there to be a similar service available for SEINEN manga targeted at older readers, but I know that has nothing to do with this service and this particular app. With a few reader-friendly additions to the app here, I think it could definitely be bumped up to 5 stars.
