[OS] MobileMD - Kodular Mangadex Client (New API)

What is the name of your app?

Describe your app:

MoblieMD is an app where you can read comics and manga from MangaDex without using a browser. Its lighter than Tachiyomi in terms of app size (22.14MB vs 6MB)

Current features:

  • Read manga (Both long-strip and page layouts are supported)
  • Read manga in 8 different languages (Depends on availability)
  • View basic manga information
  • View comments (through chrome custom tabs) (V5 DOES NOT SUPPORT THIS YET)
  • Search manga, translation groups and authors

Coming soon:

  • Manga ratings and basic stats
  • Downloadable chapters
  • More reader settings
  • Better loading screens that load the entire chapter before dismissing loading screen
  • Fixes to 503 errors when the manga list reach a certain amount
  • Better chapter sorting
  • Checkmark for read chapters
  • Author and groups information

Limitations:

  • Reader title cannot be hidden as Kodular does not support overlapping components
  • Page view layout is made with view pager and lots of compromises made
  • Had a hard time trying to show titlebar icons and add option menu items at the same time
  • Dynamic images does not have any events like on image loaded making it impossible for me to know whether all the images loaded successfully
  • App font not consistent because not all kodular components with text support typeface import

Extensions used

If you encounter any bugs, please let me know in this thread, thanks!
