Comic Zeal 5.1.1 and ThinkBook 1.1.0

Comic Zeal and ThinkBook updates have just been submitted to the app store. Here's what's new in each.

Comic Zeal gets two big things, auto-sorting and retina graphics throughout. Here is the change list:

- Added option to auto-sort a series when new comics are added to it on import. - Added option to auto-sort the home page after an import. - Retina graphics throughout. - Comic Zeal will generate high resolution thumbnails when the device has a retina display. - Comic Zeal will now try harder to find thumbnails to represent a series if there are dividers present in the series. - Fixed issue where holding down a button on the slider menu would bring up the options of the underlying entry. - Fixed issue where a comic container text was blurry on a non-retina iPhone. - Fixed a bug where comic dividers wouldn't accept comics if they had been tapped once after being created (were actually 'closed' but not showing it). - Fixed issue where comics marked as manga wouldn't start on the left of the page if the zoom level was set to 'page fit'.

The retina graphics that Thom has come up with look incredible. He's even redone some of the old 'reading option' graphics by adding some depth. Really, really nice stuff.

By the way, that image, at full size, is around twice the size and contains four times the pixels of the original iPhone screen.

ThinkBook gets a lot of bug fixes. Sorry that there are no new features or retina for you this time. I know it's been a very long time since updates for ThinkBook but it's going to get a lot more attention this year:

- Fixed issue where when creating a new note the slider would move above the current note. - Fixed issue where holding down a button on the slider menu would bring up the options of the underlying entry. - Fixed issue where text imports would fail if international characters or smart quotes were a part of the text. - Fixed crashing issue with question finders. - Fixed a crashing bug when inserting a new item into an empty list that has had items removed from it.

Next ThinkBook update will contain retina graphics, a new icon and updated splash screens.

Let's hope both updates make it through the approval process quickly and you get to see them soon.
