I would have been ecstatic had I known about Zinio.
Zinio is an online database for magazines. There are literally thousands in practically any genre you could hope for from The New Yorker, to Car and Driver, to Conde Nast Traveler, to US Weekly and Vanity Fair. I currently hold a subscription to Harper's Bazaar UK edition. Here's what I like about it...
+The app is FREE and it is FANTASTIC. (It was named Best iOS magazine app!)
+There are a ton of free articles to read even if you don't purchase anything on the site.
+Subscription prices are reasonable but you also have the option of purchasing single issues.
+Your magazines are available on all of your devices. I can read from my computer or iPhone or ideally, a tablet.
+When you live abroad or travel a lot and have limited access to reading materials in your language, Zinio is a great, inexpensive option to keep up with favourite magazines.
+The app is always with me - if I get stuck in the waiting room at the doctor's office and only have medical pamphlets in Norwegian at my disposal, I can pull out my phone and pick up right where I left off.
+Reading on my phone is not as terrible as I expected. The app includes a 'Text' option which leaves the page view and brings up only the text on the page. It makes it really easy to read an article without zooming in and scrolling around.
+Many different magazine editions are available to you - Harper's Bazaar UK, USA, Argentina, Arabia, Taiwan, Russia, India, Mexico... the list goes on and on.
+There are daily deals to check out too!
Zinio is offering you, my readers, 9 FREE magazine subscriptions. Yes, NINE! Nine of you readers will win a free subscription to any magazine in the Zinio database - the odds are pretty good!
