    Is there an app that you can view daily newspaper comic strips?

    I take it one doesn't exist? I know I can read comic strips through Safari going to several websites. I just thought by now someone would make a dedicated app to feature them. The biggest disappointment in all the newspaper apps is they leave out the comic strips they publish in print editions.

    It's probably more then you wanting to spend but have you tried the app PressReader? For 10/month one gets 30 newspaper downloads a month. The company has virtually every newspaper in the world and they feature the actual newspaper not like newspaper apps. I love it!

    Not all leave them out. I noticed The Oklahoman has a section for their comics in the app. Looks pretty good too.

    My hometown newspaper, Minneapolis Star Tribune, was like that for a while until Apple enforced their 30% take subscription rule. I preferred reading an exact replica of the print paper when traveling on the road in an RV. Of course, a replica paper has your familiar comic strips. They went to an app similar to the Washington Post and no longer give you everything in the paper such as the comic strips.

    I use GoComics.com and pick them up in an RSS reader
