XKCD v1.0

Author: Tom Philip | Filed under: App Releases

XKCD is an award winning webcomic from Randall Munroe, a former contractor for NASA. The comics feature stick figures and subject varies widely but the tagline pretty much says it all “A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language”.

What’s Coming Next For XKCD

  • I’d like to get it to use the player so people can recommend and rate the comics but I gave up in the end it, couldn’t get it to work. Although I think it looks quite neat without.
  • I might have to do some work with scrolling if the comic height is quite large. I’ll see how they are as they turn up.

Want anything else? Leave some comments. Ta.

To get XKCD in Boxee add our repository in the App Box.

  1. Looks cool, I’ll have to try it out!

    Does it show the alt text?

  2. The alt text is there in all it’s good/bad-ness

  3. Sounds like a great idea. I actually just came across XKCD last week when a coworker forwarded a hilarious tech support comic to me. I’d like to see other comics/manga appear on Boxee as well.

  4. Cool. I’m thinking of doing some more comics, I think they work real well on the big screen
