App description:

Manga Square brings you whole new experience on discovering and reading thousands of manga on your device.

we now use tiled images for our reader for extra large images.
displaying tiled images is a technique that is most commonly used in maps apps so that it can display a large map image at multiple zoom levels and we're the first one on appstore to bring this to a manga reader. actually, we go even further technical-wise by tiling images on-the-fly whereas maps would often have their map image pre-tiled on their server.

the benefits are: 

first, we've seen the memory usage dropping up to 10x in some situations, preventing many of the out-of-memory crashes when viewing those particular mangas with long-long-long images.

second, the page loading performance also has improved up to 5-6x for particularly large images.

Competing apps tried to solve this same problem by down-scaling memory-intensive images to the point that texts become blurry.
Some other apps simply crashed on those 
same pages during our testing.
