Powfolio Free Comic Book App Launches on Apple

Revolutionary App Launches in Time for Free Comic Book Day Event

ORLANDO, Fla., May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Giant Entertainment, Inc. (OTC:REDG), an Intellectual Property development company, in partnership with Glowdot Productions, Inc., a Mobile Development Studio in Santa Monica, California, announced today the launch of PowFolio, a  new free-to-read comic book platform for iOS, iPhone and iPad.

PowFolio readers gain instant free access to stream thousands of high quality comics on their Apple iOS devices.  Because of the streaming technology platform, readers never have to worry about PowFolio comics becoming a resource hog, like other apps.  Instead, readers can enjoy as many comics as they want without worrying about space.

“We want to offer comic book fans the best platform on the market” says Glowdot COO and Lead Designer Michael Eng. “Creating an intuitive, personalized interface, and showcasing high quality comics at optimal speeds has been our goal throughout the development of our technology platform.”

Thanks to an unparalleled, proprietary compression engine, readers can experience high-quality comics at faster speeds than ever before. 

PowFolio features:

  • Thousands of Modern, Golden, Kids and Manga full comics, completely FREE!
  • Titles from some of the best publishers and critically-acclaimed creators!
  • New comics and fresh content added daily.
  • High quality, fast streaming comics with an easy to use interface.
  • Automatic tracking of your progress as you read.
  • Ability to tag your favorites for easy access at any time!
  • Real-time chat with other users and comic fans.

“Building new comic book readers, and expanding the overall audience is at the heart of PowFolio,” stated Red Giant CEO, Benny Powell.  “New comic book readers are good for the industry as a whole, which is why free comic day exists… to create collectors.  We believe that comics discovered through PowFolio can and will inspire readers to purchase their physical counterparts for their collections, which is great for brick-and-mortar retailers as well.”

This year marks the 15th year for Free Comic Book Day.  It is a global event where participating comic book specialty shops give away select comics to customers, and takes place this May 7, 2016.

“New comics added every day, insuring the fun never ends and that every day is a day for free comics,” added Powell. “And the ad-supported content allows publishers and creators to generate revenue with their old and new comics alike, while giving readers a world of entertainment at no cost!”

Future updates will allow readers the option to subscribe for a small monthly fee to remove the streaming advertising as well as unlocking premium content and other exclusive features.

“Glowdot has been making apps for many years for a wide array of Fortune 500 clients and tech start-ups,” added Rick Strom, lead developer and Glowdot CEO.  “Powfolio and our publishing platform technology is the product of decades of experience in software development.  Our immense expertise in user interface, compression, streaming, and interactivity have enabled us to deliver an unparalleled experience for reading comics.”

“We can’t wait for people to discover the technology Glowdot developed for Powfolio.” said Powell.  “We couldn’t ask for a better partner in this venture.  It is truly an amazing content delivery platform that the comics world has never seen!”
