If you like to read comics at work or at school and the IT team has disabled the installation of apps and programs, you are likely out of luck. Amazon has an online service called Kindle Cloud Reader. This is an online reading platform where you can read books in the cloud, it has all of the usual functionality, such as being able to enlarge the fonts, or change up the reading experience. If you buy your comics from Amazon, it now has support for Guided View.
The Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader Guided View technology allows readers to read through comics in full screen or from panel-to-panel, mimicking the natural movement of the eye as though readers were experiencing reading a print comic book. This is great if you have comics with lots of frames and having them without Guided View, makes it harder to read.
Guided View is not enabled by default. You have to enable it by clicking on a comic book or graphic novel purchase by Amazon or Comixology. Next to the 3 dots on the top corner, there is a gearbox icon, that is cut off. Clicking on that will bring up a screen, asking you to enable Guided View. There is an option enabled by default that is called “Animate Transitions,” which adds motion during the Guided View transitions. A scroll bar is available to make the animations slower or more pronounced, there is also a flag to disable animations completely. You can use the arrow keys on your keyboard to jump between frames.
