I suspect this amazing MangaLife capability will win you over. Register yourself using your email, username & password and you can start receiving all the updates happening at the official site. You’ll get every single information straight into your inbox.
No Annoying Ads
Most of the manga sites include too many ads on their site. Even if that was not enough, they added pop-up ads on top to annoy the users. They’re doing all this to get an extra income. However, that’s not the case with MangaLife, there aren’t many ads on their website or the smartphone app.
MangaLife User Interface
In terms of the user interface, I won’t say it’s great but you can work it out. With the dark user interface, mangalife offers 4 menus at the top – Home, Directory, Search & Discussion. Right below this, there’s an Admin Recommendation section. Here you get a daily manga recommendation straight from the admin.
Home is categorized properly in 2 sections & 4 right-side widget. Thee 2 sections are – Hot Update & Latest Chapters. Further on the right side, the 4 widgets are – Subscription feed, History, Background Color, & Recently Added.
A Manga Reader is the most important aspect of any manga streaming site. In this department, MangaLife does an OK-ish job. MangaLife reader does provide all the necessary features like Single Page reading, Long Strip Reading, Page Gap & Bookmark. However, all this feature can be of no use if you find the ads at the top & bottom annoying.
Although these ads aren’t as annoying as pop-up ads there’s a chance you can get distracted.
That’s it. These are the 5 reasons why you should prefer mangalife over other manga streaming sites. Check the site yourself at Manga4life.com. If it meets your requirement, no one will be happier than me.
