Manga Watcher

Same as above, except that is has quite a reputation for being the best of its kind.

This is best suited for reading stuff you’d usually find in the funny papers. Strips mostly.

Vintage Comic Droid

This particular app is for true connoisseurs. If the user craves old comics from a bygone era, Vintage Comic Droid is their ultimate choice.

Droid Comic Viewer

Though it can supposedly support any comic format, it’s a perfect fit for Manga, allowing for right to left reading and other Manga-centric habits.

    Thank you for sharing this. Great list.
    Good news for Android developers and users. Soon we are launching the only Android store that offers more than just apps. It not only includes apps, but also eBooks, audio-books, music and much more. We also strive to create an environment where developers can publish their apps, and benefit highest revenue share.
