    Does anyone know the name of the manga-reading application that appears in the new Softbank iPhone advertisements currently airing on television in Japan?

    I've already downloaded Yappa, but I don't think that's the one shown in the TV spot.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I guess, then, the question is whether anyone knows what manga is depicted in the advertisement. I don't care about the manga itself, but rather the way that manga is displayed on the iPhone. The advertisement shows a very nice zoom feature that seems to be triggeed as the reader moves from panel to panel on a page.

    Looks like iComic can only be installed on jailbroken phones, so it wouldn't be that one. Thanks, though.

    The ad is rather new, and unfortunately not yet available in Apple's official online lineup (http://www.apple.com/jp/iphone/gallery/ads). I also haven't found it on Youtube yet.

    If and when I find the ad and/or the name of the app, I'll posted it here.

    Did you actually look anywhere before you asked other people to do it for you?
