    So I am new to my phone, all I know is that it's a windows phone and that is a Nokia Lumia 822 black.
    I just found out that it runs Windows OS 8 software, for a moment I just assumed all windows phone were running 7.8 because that was the last I heard.
    I just discovered that holding the Windows key will bring up speech.
    Anyways I am looking for a good application to read comics, so far I have ComiX (free), but I hate it! It doesn't have the option to load local files, they have to be on skydrive, then I have to download which is painfully slow even on my wifi, (my speed is 35Mbps down and 3Mbps up).

    Terrible! Why can't it just load or search for local files stored on SD card.

    Any other tips would be nice, what should I be expecting, what are some things I should know about.

    Even if it's a paid app, I am willing to pay 99cents maybe even more

    Lindy Comics is great, but I don't think it loads files from SD. Considering most Windows Phone devices don't have an SD slot, I think you'll be hard-pressed to find an app that does.

    That's unfortunate, and very inconvenient, not much I can do then.

    Have you tried Comic Time??? I think this is the best way to enjoy a comic in a mobile phone screen.

    There is an app for that try "pdf reader"(not the microsoft one,there's another one) . It isnt obvious from the name but it supports cbz files so you can read ur comics easily. The best feature of all it can read files directly from sd card. Any pdf or cbz files on sd card will show up in the app for viewing . Try it.!

    It seems that both Comic Time and PDF Reader (not the one developed by Microsoft!) can read comics off the SD card. Try both and let us know what you think. Like the OP, I also prefer to keep my comics in the SD card.

    That's the one I use too. It's very basic, though. Has any other comic book app added microSD capability?
