@kguil for your awesome work!

As I wrote in german in the appstore, the absolute best Reader so far...
Do you have any future plans to add cbr & cbz support?

For cbz and cbr files you may want to check comicrack for iOS. Little pricey but awesome app.

Evernote requires paid subscription for offline notebooks(=ability to read your data offline) on iOS
Also, there is CleverMemo (last time I checked it was free on iOS AppStore), which stores data to Evernote AND make it possible to take advantage of Marvin's support for URL Schemes (Evernote's iOS App can't do that).

Now, if there's a better note-taking app that would let us sync between devices, I'd be happy to try it out.
You can have multiple iCloud accounts on a device. I think there are certain services that you can only use with your primary iCloud account (e.g. iCloud backup) but the others, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Notes can be shared.

@Debasti - I'm not planning to support other formats for the time being. If/when I do, I'll definitely be looking at CBR(Z).

The basic CBR(Z) file is very primitive and contains a bunch of images that are display alphabetically in sequence. This is nothing more that a picture viewer running as a slide show. There are two ways to make it smarter. One is to add metadata so that more information is available. See CBZ in our wiki for details. The defacto standard is comicrack. The second is to be able to zoom in on images inside the image using the boundary lines as guides. This can be really tricky.

But honestly, is there really a lot of synergy combining a book reader and a comic reader?
There are already a lot of very good comic readers available for iOS and Android, I'm not really sure that having books and comics available in the same app would be a particularly big draw for most people, versus apps dedicated to doing one thing each very well.

@murraypaul - It depends. May people ask me for more formats to have a 'unified library' and CBR isn't as complicated a format as, say, PDF. Still, I haven't put any serious thought into supporting other formats in the first place. Personally, I like CBR(Z) because I have some ideas I haven't seen anywhere else and would like to experiment with.

I think more formats for books may well make sense, and PDF is still a very useful book format for scientific and other words where exact layout is required.
It is the combination of comics and books together than doesn't have any draw for me.

The important thing isn't necessarily to have a "draw" by providing multiple formats, but to prevent it from being a turn-off. If you never load a comic, or mobi, or pdf, etc into marvin then you shouldn't notice any difference....ie you should not be subject to reading a page in a comic frame...you wouldn't care if they supported multiple formats.

Those who want to read different formats using the same app would think it is a plus.

Fully agree with the above statement. Even though I do use PDF with GoodReader and would consider reading CBR/Z using Marvin, that last piece of software is the killer app as far as ePub is considered and I don't want to have new format if that changes too much the Interface which I have right now...

Marvin is to ePub what GoodReader is to PDF and that is perfectly fine with me...

There are documents other than comics that use CBZ/R format. Many vintage catalogs and scans of vintage magazines are packaged in that format. There are advantages to using the cbz/r format over pdf and as support for cbz/r grows, more magazine scans are being distributed in that format.

@Gurvan - there's no reason the interface would have to change at all (except for the controls available in reading mode, of course).
