    "Pile of crap"

    April 17, 2014  |   By parmalilac

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    great in theory

    Cons

    but does not work on tablet as an app, does not work as a website either as it needs Flash - which is not available for tablet

    Summary

    rubbish, can't believe anyone pays for this - I got it to read magazines via my public library but it's useless

    "PCWorld needs Zinio ver4 to read it. This ver isnt it!"

    December 20, 2013  |   By celidoni

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    It has a nice gray color. That's all.

    Cons

    The Zinio website link to download version 4 doesn't even tell you that you have to install Adobe AIR first!

    That version is not available at download.com.

    It downloaded my first issue, then stopped. Customer service says that I have to work it out with PC World

    Summary

    Very sad that PC World went out of paper copy and this is the best replacement they could find.

    I probably wont be getting another subscription to the e-magazine version or to the "all access pass" once this one runs out. I'd cancel it right now, but I'm going to allow some time for it to get better.

    "Don't buy this application"

    December 5, 2013  |   By wesleywongphoto

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    Let me think ??????? When it's actually working it's fairly easy to navigate......Sad that's about all I can say about the application and as soon as my subscription runs out I'm never going to use this program again.

    Cons

    So many I don't know where to begin. Just read below.........

    Summary

    So many I can't even begin to count. I gave up trying to use it on my iPad because it never ever worked properly. Always a technical problem occurring or error message blaming the problem due to the connection. On my computer. ... Well first of all the interface is extremely awkward and clumsily to use when you actually have the page open. I have a iMac and HAVE to use the mouse because none of my hand or finger gestures work on my scroll pad. That's really annoying. So you go to use the mouse and your left with this very small scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. I can live with that but what drives me crazy is the stupid scroll bar you use to move the pages around. If you don't get your curser exactly in the right spot you the scroll bar disappears or goes up and down. Right now I can't use my Zinio Reader 4 on the computer so I'm trying to read my magazines online and I keep getting error messages saying that I'm unable to down load the page. There's always error messages popping up on this program and I HATE IT !!!! MAKES ME SO ANGRY. THIS IS ONE MESSED UP APPLICATION. DON'T BUY IT UNLESS YOU WANT A LOT OF FRUSTRATION ALL THE TIME.

    "What a load of cr*p"

    December 17, 2012  |   By Screen58

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    None whatsoever

    Cons

    Everything - keep well away from this pile of junk

    Summary

    Total fail. I've wasted three hours of my life on this rubbish. I won't be buying anything from Zinio again until I can read it in something reliable like Foxit Reader.

    "Horrible app that never works!STAY AWAY!"

    December 17, 2012  |   By JoeDoe1980

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    NONE! This product and it's service dept have no outstanding qualities.

    Cons

    Just trying to install the app is frustrating. Adobe Air will not install using Chrome. Using IE I had no problem. Now I'm trying to download my purchased magazines but for two days straight it has told me it is "unable to download try again later". And customer service is the worst! Talked to a guy named "Pablo" last time I called who lied about the price of my subscription to get me to renew. I had to call back again to reverse the charge to what I was promised. I have two issues left and it's bye bye Zinio.

    Summary

    If you like frustrating app installs, DRM that only allows you to use their app to read the magazines, problems downloading purchased reading material, then by all means sign up. FYI, If you have the magazine sent to your house through other companies on the net, the price is the same or cheaper for the actual content and you can do whatever you want with it when your done!

    "Good Idea, Terrible implementation"

    February 7, 2012  |   By job48

    Version: Zinio Magazine Reader 3.7.4.6985

    Pros

    This is the older version of their software. It worked well, and allowed you to save files locally with recognizable filenames.

    Cons

    They discontinued this old version, very sad. The new version is based on Adobe AIR, and it STINKS. It is slower, does not work as well, saves magazines in many small pieces, and uses unrecognizable names for directories, so you don't know what is where. Typical Adobe arrogance. Take a good technology, make is slow and pathetic, charge lots for it.
