Comic Manager


This is a mobile application that I have been creating in my spare time to help me keep track of which storage box my various comic books are located in. The application is created using Apache Cordova, jQuery and several Apache Cordova plugins.

Github Repository

The application allows the user to scan the barcode of their selected comic, performs several searches against the Google Books API and lists the results for the user to select their match. Once a comic has been selected they are taken to a form where they can update the title, publisher, description of the comic and set the box number where they can find the comic.

All of the comics saved by the user are added to a list view and saved in a database. The list view items allow the user to select them to show a pop up with all of the information saved for the comic. As well as a button to remove the list item and the comic from the database. I also added the feature to export and import the list of comics as a JSON file so the user can remove the app or change their device without the need to rescan all of their comics.
