Hello everyone,
 
I'm pleased to announce Completionist. A reference app for the iPad. Obviously it uses the Comicvine API and is completely free.
 
Features are a little limited at the moment, but I'm planning on adding more goodies soon, I just didn't want to hold the launch any further. 
 
If you like it, please add a review, I'd really appreciate it. If you don't... well errr... don't :)

Thanks!

Was fine a minute ago but now it's out again.

We all know there are quite a few incomplete features and pressure points in the API, that are causing everybody a few headaches (sorting, filtering, etc). Some of these are listed in the documentation, but actually don't eveb exist, some of them have been requested repeatedly on the forum. 
 
Is there any news on the status of development of these features?
 
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm dying to put this data to good use, and I feel like the API is developed only enough that it's a big huge tease.
 
C'mon guys! If you give us proper filtering, sorting, advanced searching and object cross-referencing methods we can drastically cut back on client-side programming and the numerous API calls we're being forced to make. Remember, this is good for your servers, you'll get more willing developers using the API, drive more traffic to the site, etc... everybody wins!
 
Please, please, please add these features soon!
 
Thanks!

Hi everyone, 
 
Just stated using the API. Does sorting work at all?
 
I'm trying:
 http://api.comicvine.com/issues/?api_key=XXXX&sort=date_added
 
which returns the same as:
 http://api.comicvine.com/issues/?api_key=XXXX
 
I'm just trying to get the latest first. is this possible?
