Frequently Asked Questions
What does it require to run Omnibus on an iPad?
Apple requires all new apps to run iPadOS/iOS 16, so you must be running that in order to use Omnibus.
Will it run on my iPad XXXXX/Whatever?
Here's a list of compatible iPadOS/iOS 16 devices.
When will Omnibus be available for the Web and Android?
We're working on a web reader now! The web store and Android releases are TBD. We'd love to give you an exact date, but then we wouldn't be able to react to customer feedback and change our plans without upsetting people. We don't want to disappoint! Just know that we will get there as soon as possible (and we love you / miss you until we do).
Is Omnibus available internationally?
PRESTIGE WORLDWIDE, except for China. It's an app store/license/contract thing.
Is this a subscription service?
Not right now. We are a pay-per-book comic shop, but on the internet!
What publisher content will be available on Omnibus?
Right now, we're beyond proud to carry ABLAZE, Ahoy, Black Panel Press, BOOM! Studios, CEX, Dark Horse, Humanoids, Image, Mad Cave Studios, Oni Press, Scout Comics, Silver Sprocket, Titan, Valiant and Vault. We're adding more all the time though and will try to keep this up to date.
When will new content arrive?
For new books, we strive to be day and date. We're a new store, so we're still recieving and processing content from our partners – including back catalogs. It's all on the way! Let us know if we're missing something specific that you need: email@example.com
I'm looking for [insert publisher].
We love new publisher recommendations! Please send any that you'd like us to carry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can't find [insert book or creator], but they are published by one of your publishers.
We're still receiving back catalog content from publishers. Please send what you're looking for to email@example.com and we'll see what's up.
Can I read my existing comics and PDFs in Omnibus?
Not just yet, but it doesn't mean it won't happen!
Where's the Manga?
We'll be supporting Manga soon! We want to make sure we do it right.
Can I get this content DRM-free?
We carry as much of it DRM-free as we're allowed to by our partners. We'll build an exporter to automate the process eventually, but right now we're such a tiny team that we haven't gotten to it. Need backups? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is an account required to purchase items on the app store?
Nope! You only need an Apple ID to purchase. However, if you want to sync your books across devices or not lose your purchases when you get a new device, you'll need to signup for an account with us. Don't worry, it's super fast and tedium-free!
Who the hell are you guys?
Hi, we're Kenny Meyers (programming) Twitter / LinkedIn and Travis Schmeisser (design) Twitter / LinkedIn / Website and we're life-long comic fans. We're two pals that met through working on the internet. We kept in touch by trading comic recommendations and hanging out at web conferences or when we visited each other's city. We started building small biz software together and decided building a comic app would be way more fun, so we switched to that instead.
