With the advent of online chatting, online learning, online first-person multiplayer gaming and online anything you can think of, the internet is becoming more and more like virtual reality. Considering this, digital magazines are becoming more and more important – without them, what would users do to entertain themselves during long delays in virtual waiting-rooms or extended virtual bathroom breaks? Enjoy a well-stocked collection of virtual literary-entertainment and pay R120 for R280 worth of digital magazines from Zinio.
Zinio, a multi-platform digital news-stand, grants ravenous readers access to more than twelve thousand popular and more-obscure magazine titles, with topics ranging from keep up with local gossip You magazine to keep up with the stock market Finweek. They truly provide popular monthlies for almost everyone whether they’re the machine-loving Popular Mechanics readers or the type that like the Christmas-tree decorating tips in House and Leisure. Download, peruse and purchase either single issues or full subscriptions for your monthly, weekly or bi-monthly literary-fix. Other than their wide title-range of the more popular rags, they also provide access to lesser-known local and international glossies. Perfect for when you’re sick of visiting a hundred bookstores and having them look at you blankly when you inquire after a specific and harder to find than Santa’s warehouse magazine. They also carry buyer’s guides and romance-monthlies.
With their Unity platform, magazine’ophiles can read their purchases on any number of digital devices, whether it’s the iPad you asked Santa for this year or an iPhone, Android device and PCs or laptops. Zinio also gives you access to unique and exclusive content, like audio files and photo-galleries, giving you the chance to stay up to date on your favourite topics – whether that’s celebrity fashion choices or which type of tinsel is in-vogue this year. Passionate periodical-consumers can leaf through as many issues as they please, because Zinio account holders have access to the unlimited storage space of their own personal library – meaning you don’t have to test the load-bearing capacity of your coffee table with your extensive magazine collection.
