Download.com Staff May 16, 2014

Zinio gives you access to all types of online magazines, letting you view the latest issues and flip through them to find the stories you want to read. Whether you opt for a yearly subscription or just choose to purchase individual issues, you'll always find the magazines you're looking for through Zinio.


Nice interface: Navigating through this app is smooth and intuitive, with multiple options for how to browse and search. You can flip through popular magazines, browse by topic, or search for a specific title. And when you're looking through a magazine after downloading it, you can flip through it just like if you were holding a physical copy.

Anywhere access: If you set up an optional Zinio account, you'll be able to access your purchased magazines from anywhere. That means you can read them on your computer, tablet, or anywhere else you can log in to your account from.


Auto-delete: Downloaded copies of magazines do take up a decent amount of space on your device. And when you're running low on space, the app will automatically remove some of the issues you have stored. You don't lose these magazines, as they're still linked to your account and you can download them again at any time. But it can be challenging to manage your magazines to ensure they don't take up too much space on your iPhone or iPad but that you always have the issues you want at hand.

iPhone limitations: Reading many of these magazines on your iPhone can be a challenge because whole pages are displayed at once, although you can zoom in and out. Reading on the iPad, though, is definitely the way to get the best possible experience from using this app.

Bottom Line

If you like reading magazines and want to be able to take them with you wherever you go, this is a great app to have in your library. It lets you access just about any magazine you'd like, and all you have to pay for is the actual issues you download, just like if you were buying them from a newsstand. Prices for most issues range from $2.99 to $6.99, and yearly subscriptions start at around $15.
