What's a phone without a daily dilbert comic on it? Worthless. So here are two (very) little apps, one for the daily dilbert and one for your daily dose of garfield intellect. They both let you view past comics (last week for Dilbert, and last 30 years or so for garfield) and share the comic with a buddy (via email). Have fun with that

installation instructions for your various webOS versions, see other threads

update: please consider using the new Comics app, which contains various web comics inside a single application: http://forums.precentral.net/homebre...-v0-2-nrr.html

Nice! Tested on the emulator and will put on the Pre right away! One thing I noticed: on Sunday's the Garfield one is different dimensions, and you need to be able to scroll down to view it all, or zoom out or something.

Besides that, great app! And does what it says! Thanks!

Every product needs the gotta-have-it-app to take off.

This is the breakout app for the Pre!

Love it!

Right now, there's an easy way to install these applications (non-rooting) that only requires the downloading of the SDK (and possibly 1 or 2 other (free) apps it needs to run).

See this thread, starting around post 22, for instructions.

It's pretty simple and doesn't require too much tech know-how. Hope that helps!

Nice App. One bug of note. Check out a Sunday Garfield. These are three row and there is no way to read the bottom.

Horizontal mode for these would be killer.

I wonder if this will work with online comics like Schlock Mercenary or Sinfest? That would be great.
