Clickwheel puts digital comics on iPod photo

Clickwheel is a new Mac OS X application for downloading digital comics to the iPod photo. The $24.99 program uses a special RSS feed to acquire and manage the comics, which are added to the iPod photo as slideshows. Users then navigate through them normally, though some make clever use of the push across transition, with one of Demian Vogler’s comics using the first six frames to form a continuous image.

“Because comics on the iPod is a completely new field, we’ve commissioned a number of leading artists to create work for us,” the developer explained. “They’ve each been asked to produce a running series for the feed, so their work will be appearing over the coming year, with new episodes following on a regular basis. Our hope that others will get drawing, too, and before long, we’ll have a thriving community of artists, authors and podcasters creating work for the iPod photo.”

The developer said a Windows version is under development and “will be available shortly.”
