This application brings the XKCD comic to your Windows phone. The XKCD comic is viewed in a panorama style view.

The user can scroll through the comics by just swiping through. Scrolling left loads the previous comic and scrolling right would load the next comic (unti the latest is reached, after which it keeps loading the latest comic).

To view additional text associated to the comic, just press the pushpin button on the top left of the comic.
To close the popup, just press on the pushpin or the text itself.

If required, the user can access and go to a particular comic directly by keying in the date (via goto options).
There is an option to save the comic to picture to the media library as well.

If the user sets up a tile for the application, it will be updated with an image of the latest XKCD every time there is a new comic available. This will ensure the user knows a new comic is available to be viewed. Notifications can be turned off via the settings menu option.

Note that the save to media library and goto XKCD options are not available in the trial version.
Further, the user cannot navigate across more that 10 XKCD comics in trial mode. This application can be viewed in both portrait and landscape mode.

Automatically updating tiles are available in both the full and trial versions.
