Does /a/ read manga or watch stuff on a tablet? I was thinking on getting the galaxy tab pro 8.4, any thoughts?
>>
>read manga on a tablet
Yes, why not?
>watch stuff
Fuck no, I need to squeeze every last pixel as far as I can.
>>
>>120554511
I like reading manga on my phone or tablet while I lie in bed.
The problem is that I use an iPhone and some places or apps force open the App Store and it's annoying enough to actually stop me from reading on mobile
>>
>>120554511
Yes. I actually jumped the ship and only read manga on my tablet now. PC is not comfy enough. Lying in bed while reading is great.
>>
>>120554511
mangawatcher is kill, wat app u guys use
>>
>>120554777
perfect viewer
>>
>>120554777
Don't use shit that just downloads from online readers, download the manga yourself. PerfectViewer.
>>
>>120554511
Manga on those things is great. I have Manga Rock and it really is good to browse and read.
>>
>>120555682
>MangaRock
>aniamted gif ads on each page
>full-page ads every 10 pages or so
>push notification ads twice a week.

yeah, no.
>>
I use Manga Rock on a Galaxy Tab S 8.4, reading in portrait mode, and I have never been comfier.

>>120555846
Adaway.
>>
>>120555846
thats why i buy stuff
>>
>>120555890
Meh, I'd rather just download my manga and read it on a decent reader than even giving download hits to an app that goes maximum jew and only fetches the images from batoto
>>
Used to use android, now use iOS. Miss androids better file architecture and general openness but it wasn't very reliable at times. Still the better platform for mango.

Comicglass isn't bad if you're on iOS.
>>
>>120556257
i've bought an ipad 2 for 30€. Holy fuck that ios shit is going on my nerves. Cant do shit on that system. How do people use that shit?
>>
>>120554777
no. https://bitbucket.org/_vadia/manga-watcher-public/downloads

Just side-load it.
>>
>>120556322
It takes a lot of getting used to if you're used to android. Though it does have some perks. Namely it's usually stable as he'll compared to android. Never once had to reset my air.

But yes its file arch is downright horrible for anyone used to anything even remotely better.
>>
>>120556469
Maybe on newer idevices. Ipad 2 got 256mb ram or something. ios 8 is a ramhog. cant even play gmaemu without laggs.

Gonna sell it and buy me a note 7 or something.
>>
>>120556538
>willingly updating to eight
It's well know you're supposed to wait like 6 months to actually take an update. Too buggy otherwise.

And yeah the 2 is terribly out of date by now.
>>
>>120556617
i had to because it had icloud lock on. Did hardware tune and had to update it.
>>
on this vein, where can I download Vento Aureo? I've been reading through batoto, but by vol 50 there are no english fansub
>>
I just bought another Nexus 7 to replace my old one. I use it pretty much exclusively for mango, and it's an absolute lifesaver when work forces me to travel away from my computer.

If you buy anything that isn't the Google Nexus 7. Then you over paid for crap.
Try to prove me wrong
>>
>>120557041
Too small for my tastes. I prefer reading on a 10"
>>
>>120557041
is it good? i saw a deal for 120€ for the 2013 version i think. I had a note 2 but some french nigger stole it when i was in paris. Now im reading stuff on a motorola xoom but that thing is 10' and weight like a kilogram-very unconfortable.
>>
>>120557088
Buy the nexus 10 then. A nexus 8 is coming out later this year. Plus I don't see why you would want something bigger when manga is originally printed on 7"
>>120557116
It"s durable as hell. Can survive a fall unlike the iShit and feels sturdy unlike the Samsung. Plus for the price of around 160USD, it's not over priced for what it offers compared to other competitors.
>>
>>120557041
I prefer reading in landscape and scrolling down the page for most manga. 4koma are about the only manga I read portrait, the (generally) simplistic backgrounds and panel layout lends well to that orientation.
>>
>>120557311
I'll just keep using my air until it kicks it or I finally nab a surface pro
>>
>>120557311
the note 2 i had was sturdy as hell. You've got downs or something if you can break a non i device. I loved it but its to expensive to buy for me. The Note2 i had was a live demo version so i got it for 60€. U cant use it for calls and sms/3g internet but wlan and everything else works. Il guess i get me a nexus then.

btw i slammed my freshly repaired iphone 4 on the table slyghtly because it was lagging the shit out on me-and the backcover got the spiderman app. Love it

Like this?
>>120557366

>>120557474
Yeah, basically.

Got a yoga 2 recently and have been having fun reading manga in bed with it. I wish it didn't have windows 8 though.

I usually read in portait mode to be able to see the whole page at once (which is how it's supposed to be)

If I wanted to scroll every 10 seconds I'd read it on my computer

Honestly, since most decent manga sites have turned to shit, you should all be downloading manga and using Perfect Viewer or an equivalent.

Does mangakami have RSS?
>>
>>120557598
I have the exact same thing except I DL my manga. I honestly think that people like you don't actually understand the alternative to reading online. I never used to hear stuff like this before batoto came around; everyone downloaded.

I have an ipad mini and I used manga storm on it.

It's a good app and has an auto-download feature, but the only downside is, you have to download manga from one of the manga readers.

I used iBooks to read light novels and what not.

I don't like streaming anime period, but Im going on a road trip with some friends this weekend so 'll be streaming my shows on the ride there.

Mangarock is better.
I had times where I go on a deployment after download a shit ton of manga and there are a ton of chapters/ pages corrupted. Pissed me off so much.
What I really recommend is just downloading your manga and putting on your tablet instead of streaming.

It's a waste of money though. It may have been worth it before, but the only good site on there is Batoto which is pretty shit now since tons of stuff has been removed, and is not updated.

I understand that the quality of manga apps is slightly worse than downloaded images but most apps support Batoto and don't have watermarks at all.

MangaWatcher downloaded from Batoto and let you read it in PerfectViewer, didn't know it was dead, it was really good.

who cares anyway. Its not like you notice the quality if you read stuff on a phone/tablet. Watermarks are literary triggers for autistic childreen. I dont get people.

Samsung and even LG hate expandable storage as well.

I've had to mod my galaxy s5 to make my 64 gb microsd to be writeable. But I think it's for the same reason why apple does this to their iphones. First, it's obvious it's for the money. But it's also to maintain the phone's processing ability. I've seen this happen myself with the same phone. I had another galaxy s5 with a 4gb microsd and it ran a lot smoother until I put my 64gb microsd in it.
>>
>>120560061
There are legitimate security reasons for locking down the SD card, since FAT doesn't have all the permissions features that ext4 does. It just so happens that it correlates nicely with Google's mission of making you use Drive.

>>120554511

yes i have a ipad mini 2 for manga and for books i recomend you a tablet with aspect ratio of 16:10 the tab pro is great you will use the most of the screen on most mangas, i like the 4:3 aspect ratio for pdf, light novels and so, i chosed the mini 2 and i only have to zoom a little with mangas, also buy manga rock, is totally worth it

I use a 64GB microUSB drive with my nexus 9. It does the job well and I don't really even miss not having a microSD slot anymore.

And the new Tegra K1 just plows through 1080p files, even in software mode.

The Nex 7 is the greatest purchase I made last year, it's a god tier reading device. I wouldn't willingly watch anime on it though, the only time I ever did that was on my breaks when I was working.

sd cards have built in hardware security requiring a passcode to accesss data, regardless of the filesystem.
They also have a built in drm feature that can be enabled to allow only specific applications to access it, which is utilized by microshit phones to keep you from using the card on any other device unless you format it.

I don't mean to shill, but I personally have one of those portable Filehubs that you plug media into. The one I got lasts ~6 hours while sharing off a portable harddrive. $150 (HDD was that slim Seagate with the Samsung drive and the Filehub itself was 50 bucks) for a 2TB storage upgrade is pretty good.
>>
>>120560399
> to keep you from using the card on any other device unless you format it.
This doesn't become a problem once you root and modify your phone.
>>
Watermarks and low quality images are so fucking obvious. Worse than streaming anime, because getting shit from a better source is not even difficult, takes very little time and you can still read online if the scanlator has an online reader.

Why would choose the obviously inferior product, at zero extra cost?
