Personal Comments by Reviewer
If you’re a fan of anime or manga then this app is a must-have download for you. I did find the news feed to be a bit cluttered-looking and busy, which makes it hard to stay on top of all the stories. It just feels like there is an awful lot of information that is being conveyed in this app; perhaps too much information.
