next-issue-1

I love magazines, but I don't love the clutter of them laying around the house nor the waste of paper involved for a few moments entertainment.   I've wanted ebook versions of magazines since I first got my hands on my Sony PRS-500 ebook reader many years ago, but I wanted something that could display the [...]

Julie did an app review on Zinio's digital magazine service a few years ago. At the time, I tried it for myself and read a few of their free samples/examples on my MacBook.
