Given that I devour magazines by the shed load each week, I was thrilled to stumbled upon Zinio Digital Magazines some time back, and was utterly amazed at the selection of digital titles available.
There is simply no better way to stay current with your field or subject of choice than by sitting down and brisking through the pages of a magazine and discovering the insightful and entertaining articles found in most premium titles.
Anyone with a credit card can sign up- even South African – and easy to install proprietary software (Zinio Reader and subscriptions manager) is available to download and handles everything. You then can select your titles (some once off but most on a subscription basis), pay for them and they will be automatically downloaded (around 40-50MB’s each issue) to your hardrive each month. You then open up the magazine and read it as you would a normal magazine – but with the added funtionality of search and zooming etc.
