I just got Zinio a couple days ago. Two magazines I subscribe to in print are available digitally, Birds and Blooms and Garden Design. So I thought I would check out B&B, and it requires Nook for iPad or something. Nook for iPad looks cool, but apparently not all the magazines it offers are available for iPad. So then I found Zinio, and _all_ the magazines there are available for iPad (and iPhone). I DLed Zinio, and then at work yesterday (nice fast wifi) subscribed to a reptile magazine, got a few issues of a wine magazine, an issue of a garden magazine, the latest Consumer Reports...
I like to go sit outside at my Water Garden in the evening. I take my iPhone, (e-mail and texting, timer for grilling) and iPad (Words With Friends, Flipbook) and a print magazine or catalog or whatever. Sit there in my rocking chair, drink a glass of wine, feed the fish. So I was thinking, if two of the three mags I subscribe to in print are available in Zinio, wouldn't it be nice to get rid of the clutter (I have a hard time throwing them away after reading) and just go digital? The iPad has been sucking up so much of my time as it is...
Anyway, last night I read a couple issues of Vines and was really pleased with the experience. My only complaint is several mags I would like to get are in the $50-60/12 issues range. Seriously?
All in all, I'm extremely pleased with Zinio.
