A dim view on Panel View and Guided View
|This post has been kindly submitted by member Raymond Arotin.|
There are several ways that developers have sought to “improve” the reading experience of digital comics. On the Kindle Fire, it’s called “Panel View.” Comixology’s version is “Guided View.” (Scroll down for a video comparing the two.)
I have to be honest… I really hate them. To me, there’s nothing more annoying than to be squinting at a comic on a tablet and then having to “tap – tap” on the screen… and then having to turn your screen from portrait to landscape, just to see that one panel, then turn it again to go back to portrait, to see other panels better. All that does is throw me out of the story. Even just simply tapping to enlarge is annoying… even if I don’t have to turn my tablet.
