Maybe you're in search of a good belly laugh after a long week. Well, the GoComics app just launched on Android with a ton of officially syndicated comic strips and political cartoons to cheer you up. You can download the app for free, and you don't even have to create an account to get started.

GoComics has some of the most popular comic strips that have ever been printed. There's Garfield, The Boondocks, FoxTrot, Calvin and Hobbes, and more. Some of these strips have decades of back issues to dig through. The political cartoonists in GoComics span the political spectrum as well.

The app is a bit clunky on tablets, and only uses Holo design elements in a few places. Still, it's a great resource if you want to checkout some classic comics. By creating an account you can subscribe to specific strips, save comics, and get access to the full archive. If you decide to make an account, you can see all your subscriptions on the GoComics website too.

    For someone who has been reading comic strips since a little kid, this makes me so happy! It's very sad that a lot of comics have ended due to the decline of newspaper sales, but this is easily going to be an opportunity to fix that. It's a bit clunky on the iPad too, but that's the nature of comic strips really, they're made for paper, and have different widths and heights, especially on Sundays. I tried building a demo app a few years ago and it was hard just for that reason.
