Zinio Review: Your Favorite Magazines Online Anytime

Love it? Pls Share it!

While I love to read, especially magazines, I do not particularly care to mail order all of my favorite magazines for several reasons.  First of all, despite plenty of opportunities to find them for free, it can still get quite expensive if you have several favorites as I do.

Secondly, trying to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle and ordering tons of paper magazines do not exactly go hand in hand.  Plus, at some point you need to get rid of those magazines or else you will have piles of glossy paper all over the place!  So, when Zinio offered me the chance to review their new Z-Pass, I jumped on it!

WHAT IS ZINIO?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Zinio, it is basically the world’s largest online newsstand with over 6000+ Digital Magazines from all around the world.

Choose from thousands of popular magazines across every category and topic including art, automotive, style, home, travel, entertainment, politics, women’s interests, men’s interests, food and many more.

ZINIO has top-rated apps for iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows phone, Mac & PC, so you can take your favorite magazines with you wherever you go.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

To get started, you enroll in Zinio and download the app for your device. You can then select a subscription length. Subscription lengths vary depending on the magazine, and the majority also offer you the option to purchase the current issue only.

Once you are set up, your selected magazines are delivered directly into your library. You then have the option to access it directly online or download the entire magazine to read later offline.

You also have the ability to sync your library across multiple devices so you can read your favorite magazine wherever you may be. I have mine synced between my computer, my phone and my e-reader.

Plus, with Zinio, you can search digital magazine archives, access thousands of free articles and even share your favorite articles with friends on Facebook and other social networks.

You can also find a fair number of free magazines across several areas of interest.

Nice article on Z-Pass and Zinio. I have been a fan for years with several full subscriptions. I also bought 1 off here and there of magazines with interesting coverage, but one I don't have a subscription to. Z-Pass swap option gets you six magazines a month and the ability to get those one offs. I think it is a great value.

Compliments of Zinio, I have 8 full magazine subscriptions to give away. See my site for details: https://markeclinger.com/apple/ipad-apple/review-of-zinios-z-pass-and-free-magazines/

I love my magazine subscriptions but have found that I read them less now that I am out and about so much or on the computer working. A digital subscription would be great. I will have to check this out.

I think this would be even better than getting them in the mail since I never get to read them! Thanks for sharing, very cool.
