For those who have already been using the app on their iPad, both applications are compatible, allowing you to read manga you’ve purchased on either device. The application can be downloaded through iTunes.

VIZ Media is also have a special promotion until May 9th, where select volume 1 titles will sell for only $2.99. Other manga volumes will sell at the regular price of $4.99, half the price of a physical copy.
