    Anyone know any good manga reading apps? Preferably one that comes with manga pre-installed where you have an option to add your own.

    I don't know in what format your manga material is but I use Comic Reader Mobi for reading comics. Nothing preinstalled though.

    I use MangaWhat. Free, no ads, works well.

    Android Comic Viewer is the best for general comic viewing. My experience with the Manga comic viewers is that they are all a little hokey.

    Does that app come with manga pre-installed or do you have to add your own?

    In my experience (I have that app), I can only seem to make it work as a .cbz viewer, kinda like CoView for Windows. You put in your own comic files and read them on your phone.

    Basically I use that only for my American Comics (mostly DC and Walking Dead), while use Mango for Manga.

    I tried searching for Mango on the market but nothing comes up. Is "Mango" the full name of the app?

    EDIT: Nvm I found it, but not sure if this is the app you were talking about.

    If that's not the app, do you mind posting a link to it?

    I like Manga Watcher. I use it intermittently with Mango, but I find myself using the former more often. It has hentai and everything. But why do you think an app will have manga preinstalled? That would be awfully presumptuous of them. There is so much manga, how could they know what you like? Anyway, with either one you can save whatever you want. I still buy manga from my local comic book store to support them, along with the mangaka, but I like to try new series pretty often.

    Edit: Mango seems to have disappeared from the market! Probably copyright issues. Good thing I still have it.

    No unfortunately ChanChan is right, it does not. That's the only problem with it.

    I use Perfect Viewer. It works pretty nicely.

    Yeah Mango issued an in app message saying they got removed from Android Market about a month ago :/ They did offer a link to install a more updated version though and I'm using it almost everyday.
