Zinio Magazine App for Windows 8 Updated with Performance Fixes

Posted by on Aug 27, 2013 in Releases, Windows 8 | 0 comments

Zinio is at the top of the list when it comes to digital magazines, and they have apps for just about every popular platform.  The Windows 8 modern app has been out for a while, but one of the past updates broke parts of the app and made it difficult to use. I noticed an update today in the Windows app store for Zinio and was glad to see the performance issues were addressed.  I’ve been reading some magazines today and haven’t had any issues, so if you were having trouble before, be sure to give it a try again.

Review: Zinio for iPad

Posted by on May 6, 2010 in Reviews | 0 comments

The iPad has brought a lot of attention back to ebooks, and rightly so as the iPad is a phenomenal eBook reader. However, as much as I enjoy reading books, I also enjoy reading magazines. This is where the Zinio app for the iPad steps up. Zinio has long been a source of digital magazines for reading on the PC, so it was natural for them to build for this platform.

The general design is not that much different than that of the iBooks or Kindle in the sense that it has it’s own store and library. Upon opening the app you are faced with several featured magazines which you can...
