'Multifaceted, multisensory... a very cool app, very deep.' - App Vader

'A beautifully intuitive app.'Transfiction

'The response to the app so far has been amazing. We expected people to like the content, but we’ve been surprised by how much people love the discoverability of stories within the app, too.' Comma editor Jim Hinks on The Literary Platform

'Short stories translate well: the situations they depict are often more universal than the novel, and yet they cling to their original language less tenaciously than the poem. This makes them perfect vehicles for imaginary journeys into unfamiliar locations and cultures.'Jim Hinks on Thresholds

'A genuinely progressive and exciting little app that just might point the way towards somewhere new that none of us would otherwise have thought to venture.' - Big Issue in the North

'The app is a mixture of all that Comma Press are founded on: short stories, translation, and a certain element of wanderlust.' - Jim Hinks in Synaesthesia Magazine (p38)

'We've of course always been able to go anywhere with books, but how fantastic that authors, publishers and translators are challenging us to travel further than we otherwise might, transported by our phones and tablets, in scraps of precious time we might otherwise have found dreary.' - Asian Books Blog

'Your commute just got interesting.' - The Skinny

'This app feels like it takes literature seriously as well as taking new technology seriously. It feels useful. It feels exciting. Yet again, Comma Press proves itself to be a serious pioneer of short fiction publishing.' - literateur.com
