Our unofficial XKCD browsing app has been developed by our highly talented in house team. The source code has been neatly arranged and is super easy to understand with a ton of comments throughout, to give you a helping hand.

Meticulously designed with slick transitions and animations.

Beautiful UI

The XKCD App has been designed to give users a beautifully simple User Experience. We've implemented a really simple card interface with side scrolling swipes to move through the different comics.

XKCD App Screens


A super slick side scrolling view allows users to browse the comic lists quickly. Comics on the XKCD website are arranged by date so having a randomize feature is a super neat touch to allow you to experience comics from years ago. πŸ’₯ πŸ”Ž

What Can I Do With It

There's so many different ways in which you can use the XKCD Codebase.
Some of our ideas...

Launch your own Comic browsing app

Ok this one's pretty obvious πŸ˜‚. But yes you could take the code, re-theme with your own branding and release it onto the App Store.

Launch a 'Quote of The Day' app

The same core functionality and design applies to creating an app like that. If you've got a burning desire to release your own words of wisdom then starting with the XKCD codebase is your best bet.πŸ“–

Learn Swift app development

Stunning dynamic and programatic user interfaces, Beautiful animations, Backend API integration, local caching. There's so much you'll learn by looking through a high quality well documentated codebase like XKCD. πŸŽ“

Need us to customize the code?

If you're not a developer and you'd like to customize some of the functionality or User Experience of the XKCD app, we'd be more than happy to help. Just drop us some details on what you'd like and we'll get back to you with a quotation within 24 hours. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I release my own apps with these?

Of course. You have access to the complete source code so feel free to tweak and release your apps when you're ready.

What will I get if I purchase this?

You'll get an XCode project with the Swift source code of the App described above.

Does this come with backend code?

No. The XKCD app has no requirement for backend storage. It uses the API very generously provided by XKCD. See details here. Be sure to consult the terms on the XKCD website before building your own app.

Will you be updating the App source code?

Yes of course! We'll continue to update the Apps and you get updates Free for the next 12 months.We try to release an update every 2 weeks.

Simple Terms

Single License

The single license allows you to use the app source code with one project, either for yourself or on behalf of a client.

Within an organisation, you can have multiple developers working with the same code but you can only publish an app to the App Store as a single project, i.e. you’re launching the next Facebook, you use our app source code. You then decide to create a Messaging App using our code? At this stage come and purchase a new license, (You’re Facebook, you can afford it!). It helps us pay the bills πŸ˜‰

What do you mean by item and end product?

The item is what you purchase from the Redbeard Marketplace. The end product is what you build with that item.

Am I allowed to modify the item that I purchased?

Yes. You can customize our items to fit the needs of your end product.

What does non-exclusive mean?

Non-exclusive means that you are not the only person with access to the item. Others are also licensing and using the same item.

Can I re-distribute the app projects?

No. You can't license items and then make them available to others 'as-is' (that is, as a stand-alone item or as stock), regardless of which license you purchase.
