The Multiplex iPhone app has been approved and is now available in the App Store. It is FREE (which of course means it's iAd-supported), so if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, please give it a spin, and if you're so inclined, leave an honest review.
iPad users are better off sticking with the full website; it's a fairly straightforward app — a nice, clean, stripped-down interface to read Multiplex on a tiny screen, as opposed to navigating the full website and all the extra bells & whistles, and we think it does what it's supposed to do rather well.
Thanks are due to my brother Lawrence for coding the whole thing (not to mention my website), and to all the beta testing volunteers!
(Since I've already been asked, I'll add that yes, we are planning an Android version — but don't start holding your breath or anything yet. My brother is a busy busy guy.)
I'm running a T-shirt idea past the forumgoers, so if you'd like to check it out and let me know what you think, please do.
Lastly, the Multiplex Pre-Order/Sales Drive thingy is still going on! We're still just shy of half-way to the goal, but I think we can still make it. Pre-order a book now and get FREE STUFF. Who doesn't like free stuff? Even if you've already pre-ordered (or want to wait 'til you can flip through one with your own, greasy mitts), please consider buying a print or T-shirt to help support Multiplex.

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
