Ghostbusters: The Other Side released for iPhone

For those of you with and iPhone, a dollar, and an interest in reading the IDW Ghostbusters mini-series without having to go to a comic shop, you might consider buying the series from Apple. I would have thought the iPhones pinch-and-flick zoom feature would have made it ideal to present whole pages of the issue for viewing, but it appears that each page is broken down into panels. I’m curious to see how that pans out.

It’s hard to say if it’s official or not, as the app listing doesn’t mention IDW, but it does feature Columbia’s copyright info. It’s difficult to imagine that Apple would allow an illicit product go out through their store, as all apps have to be certified. For the time being, I’ll assume this is legit.

To buy the app, click here and if you have iTunes, it will automatically launch to the app page in the Apple App Store. Thanks to Borzou for spotting the app!

[UPDATE] So, a little checking and the app is legit – and it’s not a bad way to read the book, though you do a lot of fast flipping (doesn’t take long to look at a panel, unless you want to pour over the art detail, and this isn’t quite the format for that.) No word yet on when the other three issues will be out, but stay tuned.
