Home » Cover is a great Windows 10 app for reading comic books

Passionate comic book readers don’t have many options for comic book reading tools in Windows 10‘s Store. Most of the apps are either outdated or simply don’t feature everything users need. However, there’s one app called Cover, which stands out from the competition, and many consider it the best

Cover offers a great experience of reading comic books, mostly because it’s quite customizable. It allows users to experiment with a single or a dual page view, and adjust the height or width of the screen. If you’re reading your favorite comic book at night, and most of us do, there’s a Night Mode to keep your eyes relaxed while reading.

The app also has its own storage, allowing you to add as many comics as you want. That way, you’ll be able to keep track of the comic books you’re reading. Besides regular comic books, Cover also supports other PDF files.

Here’s the full feature list of Cover for Windows 10:

  • “All of your file formats are supported: CBZ/ZIP, CBR/RAR, 7Z/CB7, CBT, PDF, EPUB (images only)

  • … As well as your image formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, WEBP

  • Crystal-clear library management: Shelves, read/unread status, page count, current page,…

  • Store your comic books wherever you want: Local folder, network, OneDrive, Dropbox.

  • Read on-the-go by making your remote comic books available offline

  • Open standalone files from within Cover, or directly from the Explorer.

  • Find your comic books easily with the Search, Favorites, Smartviews,…

  • Customize your reading experience: single/dual page, fit width/height/page, background color, cropping, night mode,…

  • Read any kind of comic books, left to right, or right to left (Manga mode)

  • Enjoy the smooth reading using all the touch gestures or keyboard shortcuts you’re used to

  • Choose which comic books you want to show in Kid’s Corner (Phone only – only supported on Windows 10 version 1511 and below)

  • Even once you’ve left the app, you keep track thanks to the live tiles.”
