Make It Simple, Please 1/5
By George Lien
I was trying to find new magazines to subscribe—only to find my discovery was hard to find.
Make this App more simple to use, please.
12 years (and numerous complaints to ZINIO) later, I still cannot access the magazine I purchased THROUGH ZINIO! Boo!
Catch Up 1/5
Since updating to iOS 13.1.2 app crashes and will not open. Just updated to 13.2 and it still crashe.
Total Junk 1/5
By Johnny P69
Typical Foreigners... they don’t care about anything except your hard earned money.
Why is Zino great. 5/5
The sheer quantity of Magazines from woodworking to business to guns and ammo is great.
Also a preview given on the magazine you are about to purchase is great.
Thank you Zino Team
Best digital app 5/5
I’ve enjoyed using ZINIO for digital magazine purchases and reading magazines anywhere I am. So convenient and very sharp images.
I really like this app 5/5
I really like this app
Two stars 2/5
ZINIO is happy to sell you a subscription of a magazine that is going out of business and then forgets to offer you some remedy.
Sometimes ZINIO forgets to send you access to your magazine. When you point it out to them they do quickly send it to you when you point out is missing. Which is always after you see it at the newsstand.
Missing mags and terrible customer service 1/5
Can’t get my mags to consistently deliver. Customer service is excruciatingly difficult to navigate
Failing Mess 2/5
Their customer service is in shambles. There “sales” are complete BS. 5.99 is not 75% off the cover price of Sound on Sound. Are you guys f-in serious. I dumped app all my subscriptions. And said “buh buy, you have real nice day”.
5+ stars for variety zero for pricing zero for value 2/5
Amazing variety of titles, countries and language.
The pricing is onerous. There is no all for one monthly price. Issues sell for and average of $9 (the ones that interest me).
This works for the uber rich or the ones that only care for one tittle or 2.👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
WTH HAPPENED?! 1/5
Pressing the SEARCH button gets nothing.
Zinio used to be amazing, now it's gone to crap.
So disappointing! I wanted to buy a digital magazine tonight but can I? NOPE.
Search is BROKEN
Pressing the search button only gets "categories"! RUFKM?
I want a PARTICULAR MAGAZINE
SKIP IT NOW!
WHY IS THIS REVIEW NOT BEING POSTED???
Love Zinio but .... 3/5
By kwv - dc
Needs important magazines & journals .....
These are available elsewhere but Zinio is better reading experience
Needs to be to added: capability to
1 ) archive or 2 ) delete multiple titles ( magazines ) with two steps: absolutely
1 ) select multiple titles to archive
then touch to archive
2 ) select multiple titles to delete
then touch to delete
also ....... should have printing available for articles ....... even if there is a cost ......
EG ....... buy subscription with or without print capability .....
To automatically add all publications when buying at new device!! EG: in February I purchased a new Ipad .... updating al pubs is a night!!
NOT SURE I WILL DO THAT AGAIN!!!
Best method to view your magazines in total privacy.
Me fascina 5/5
Siempre me ha encantado lo considero lo mejor poder leer y ver acá todo
In the rare times when it works; a nice app. 2/5
New review: the new magazine search has never actually worked in any version. Simple searches to find a magazine that you were looking at yesterday, don't show up! I can't buy what I can't find. Searching the library of already purchased items seems to work well.
The app update gives and the app update takes; such is life in iOS. I spell disappointment: Apple iPhone
ZINIO is clearly the best. Highly recommend!
Bad to Worse 1/5
This is so non-intuitive app. Gave it a 2nd chance, still horrible.
I loved Texture and they unfortunately sold to apple.
Titles incomplete 2/5
Please allow for subscriptions of essence and ebony magazines.
Can’t delete downloads 2/5
By College Prof
The new version has a serious flaw. You can’t delete downloaded content. When you try and select a magazine, the app loads it rather than highlights it for deletion. The only solution is to delete the app and reinstall.
Great layout but popups are annoying 4/5
I love the layout and customization options this app gives you. Being able to change font size and background color is really nice. I also like having my page saved until next time. The app loses a star because of constant popup notifications about sales. Get rid of those and it’s an easy five star rating from me.
Can we have an in-app dictionary?!
What happened to my subscription ? 1/5
By J. David88
ZINIO let my subscription die and didn’t even ask me to renew. :-(
I still miss Texture App 2/5
Please put more of texture features into your app. Show magazines that have been read.
Love the UI 5/5
Been a subscriber to Zinio since it’s first launched. Try other magazine apps but decided this is the best app for buying and reading my favorite magazines.
I want a refund! 1/5
I just downloaded two magazines only to get an alert that the download was paused (and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with my Wi-Fi signal), every time I have to delete the magazine and then download it again only to keep tell me the same exact thing.I already spent eight dollars and I want to be refunded since it is obvious that I’m going to get this same alert message on the app, so I deleted the app because it makes absolutely no sense if every time I open the app I have to keep seeing the same message!
Best Magazine App 5/5
ZINIO is still the best App out there to get your worldwide digital subscriptions and your not just confined to one region subscriptions
Can’t delete titles I never signed up for and don’t want. 1/5
By Uke Man
Why can I delete the titles that somehow ended up on my page that I never even bought? What a mess! The old interface was vastly superior. They need a delete button in the worst way.
Ugly and ad-infested 1/5
Zinio always wakes up to ads for more magazines. Then an ugly pop-up occurs, trying to sell you even more of them. There is no option to avoid this. This could be forgivable if we weren’t paying them a bunch of money already for the magazines, but we are. There’s no option for it to wake up showing your library.
Then, when you finally are able to display your library, it’s an ugly white-background display with no option for customization.
Come on, Zinio, treat us better. And users of Zinio, stop giving this app five stars and encouraging this arrogant behavior.
Edit: the developer explained below how to remove the most irritating pop-up ads (turn off notifications—but since when are ads euphemistically called notifications?). Unfortunately, Zinio still necessarily opens to the “home” page, which is entirely ads, and I still get pop-ups. So it’s still ugly and ad-infested—even when we tell it not to be. We pay more money to Zinio than to most apps, which remove ads when you pay them. Zinio is still treating us badly by forcing us to see ads simply upon opening the app, and the alleged fix doesn’t work. So I’m changing my rating to one star.
By the way, I notice that the “most helpful reviews” are five stars and are years old, and my actually helpful recent review and others like it are way way down on the “helpful” list. I’m guessing that Zinio has invested heavily in “reviewers”. If only they’d invested in improving their product...
Where is the most recent issue??? 3/5
This app is fine for viewing subscription online but I wish the app would show more on the Account Page such as account #, subscription end-date, etc.
Love it 5/5
I love this app. I get many monthly magazines on it and it saves trees. I have them in ,y Library too to look back on.
Absolutely DO NOT get this app 1/5
This app is garbage... payed for a whole year of magazines and I only got 3 months worth... do not give this app any money... and they’re tech support is garbage too... idiots.
By enuff al ready
Horrible to make a purchase off an iPad. Probably wont order again and have to use kindle again or BN
Crashes every time I use it 1/5
No matter which magazine I read, the app closes randomly.
Not easy to use or read with. If my subscription did not demand that I use it, I would not.
Printing articles 4/5
This app would be much better if I could print an article or pattern I like. If I logged in on the computer I can print but on my tablet it doesn’t let me.
Works well 4/5
The app works great on my iPad. I like that you can book mark articles to read later. It syncs with RB Digital so you can have subscriptions from both in one spot. The only odd thing is that when you delete a magazine from your list it sends it to archive instead of just getting rid of it. That is a minor annoyance though. It is an overall good app.
Cancel subscription 1/5
I’m giving ZINIO a 1 star rating simply because they may it so difficult to cancel a subscription to a magazine. This makes me even more intent to cancel the subscription plus it creates ill will with subscriber.
The Updated App July 9, 2019 - CRASH 1/5
All of a sudden cannot read any subscription. Magazine downloads then a screen comes up listing "contents" and then freezes everything. Needs some serious work done.
Latest Version is Bad 1/5
I loved Zinio until the last App update. Now I can no longer read my magazines.
Where are magazine updates? 2/5
I switched from News+ on Apple to Zinio, and bought subscriptions to about seven magazines. But I am beyond frustrated because the new issues of magazines do not arrive timely. For example, it is Monday, and the current Entertainmemt Weekly has been available on News+ since Friday. Zinio, still nothing...sigh, I really miss Texture. I will NOT renew my Zinio subscriptions if they continue to be so late in updating new content.
Generally good 3/5
By Double J reader
I find quality good, sometimes descriptions of magazines in store unclear (ordered magazine with English title and received Italian version). Also, can be on expensive side. Often there are free versions of same magazines on other sites or direct from publishers or Issuu etc.
I love this site my library is on point and in time I love the archive I can do my research on older editions. Keep on keeping on. Just one thing when you guys do a renewal just say the name of the magazine not just the price I’m a senior I just want to know what I’m paying for just an suggestion. Other than that good job😊
NatGeo on Zinio: Good - but not great 3/5
Have been using Zinio to read NG for 8 years now. Current version is reasonably good... but it ain’t great.
Recent update introduced long overdue feature. You can now read NG in ‘PDF-like’ format. In other words, no multimedia, no 3D layouts, just pages of content and pictures that you can flip and read. Just like a paper magazine. Very nice! Except for one thing... Every time you scroll to the next article, a popup floats in. ‘Good news! Text view is available!’ Text view is their 3D layout with videos and other fluff. By the time I finished reading that issue of NG, I was treated to the ‘good news’ announcement over 70(!) times.
Do you, guys, think 10 popups might be enough for an average reader to comprehend the ‘good news’? I know you worked hard on that ‘text view’ but still... We are not that dumb, really...
Another huge annoyance is a flood of crappy titles that Zinio shoves into your personal library. Previously you could choose the titles you want and save them in ‘Read’ layout. Not any more! ‘Library’ is the new ‘Read’ and every time I open it, I find dozens of helpful new titles from WebMD to VIV and ‘Car and Truck’.
Guys, pls stop it. Have your new titles in your marketplace. I’ll go there when I want to. But leave my library alone, don’t dump your junk there. It’s not cool.
Did not work 1/5
Tried several times but finally got a refund and removed from my iPad
Thank you. 5/5
Please don’t sell out to Apple. :)
Love the access 5/5
I appreciated being able to purchase a magazine and view it promptly. I also enjoy looking through the large variety of magazines available for I am still considering many that I would like to subscribe.
Appears okay now 5/5
Had some learning issues.
Great app 4/5
This is a great app for reading magazines, but i wish i could read penthouse magazines on the app, and i wish Hustler magazine could come to zinio magazines too
