Happy Monday everyone!
Back in August, I did a little post about apps on the Nintendo Switch, including one that was called Inky Pen, a monthly subscription app for comics. It was something I was interested in, but…
Inky Pen is an app exclusive for the Nintendo Switch and boasts thousands of comics for a monthly subscription. It recently became available for download — on December 17th, to be exact — so I recently found it on the eShop.
And deleted it almost immediately.
Granted, I may have been a little hasty in deleting the app. I’m a comic book lover at heart, so this app seems to be right up my alley. However, after downloading the app, it went through the process of setting up an account, which is fine, before immediately asking for payment.
I understand that it’s a subscription service and the folks who compile the comics and run the app deserve to be paid. However, I was hoping for a small trial service so I could see what kind of titles Inky Pen offered. I highly doubt that major publishers such as Marvel and DC were going to be available for only 8 bucks a month. While I’m totally game to support smaller, indie comic book publishers, I do want to see what I’m paying for.
Perhaps I’ll try the app for a few months a bit later next year and not when I’m coming out of holiday shopping for the family, see if the titles are worth the price.
