Zinio Magazine Subscription Review + Giveaway! * - CLOSED


A little while ago, I was approached by the lovely people at Zinio, and asked if I wanted to test out their service. Being a beauty lover, I instantly loved the idea of having an online subscription to a magazine! Accessing it with my iPhone was a bonus, meaning I could read a digital copy of my favourite magazine, any time I wanted, all with being environmentally friendly!

Being a PC lover (Sorry Mac!) I also have access to the spiffy Windows App for Zinio, which is available on the Windows App Store. (Not sure if you have to have Windows 8 to access this, but luckily I do!)



Accessing my favourite magazines all in one place has never been easier! The app is really user friendly! It took me a long time to get used to Windows 8 apps as it was, but the Zinio app was very easy to pick up! You can also browse other magazines and buy online, ranging from just one issue, or the entire year subscription! There are also loads of free articles to read, all in beautiful high definition imagery! (No coffee mug stains on my magazine!)



Inserts from my subscription of Marie Claire!

As you can see, the image is beautifully clear, and so easy to read online! It also means that I can save my favourite images for later, and research things on the spot. There's also a really easy bookmark option, which lets you bookmark any pages you might want to go back to! 



Screenshots of the Zinio App.

Like I mentioned earlier, you can also access your subscription with your smartphone. The app is free and really simple to use, and I found reading Marie Claire on my phone a lot easier than it first sounded! The images are just as clear! 

-- 

Overall, I'm so pleased that I was able to get a subscription with Zinio! I'm definitely going to be using their services in the future with other magazines! Did I mention that you can also access magazines that aren't available in your country! (Thinking international Vogue, ladies!) Imagine the money you pay to buy an Italian Vogue just for the gorgeous pictures - instead you'll be saving money and have those pictures crystal clear on your smart phone/computer!

I definitely think this is a great service, and it's the way of the future! No more spending loads of money on buying the latest magazine, (whilst also wasting paper) instead have it delivered directly to your computer without even leaving the house! That's what I call service!

You can find out more about Zinio on their website.

  3. I can only imagine how awesome it would be to have access to all those magazines and hella way cheaper too! :O

    I love reading magazines for ideas on how to dress a certain way or to see what the celebrities are wearing. Unfortunately its not always in my budget since they are a hefty price for a casual sales assistant like myself ^_^;
