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.
Nice app, when it works 1/5
Last update all black screens for downloaded issues!
The app update gives and the app update takes; such is life in iOS. I spell disappointment: Apple iPhone
Old review: Bad update
Says I have no internet connection.
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 4/5
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
Like Zinio but I didn’t get recent magazine edition 4/5
I subscribe to the Atlantic and haven’t seen current edition on Zinio
Broke ZINIO 2/5
It has been days and the last few magazines won’t finish downloading,
Look forward to seeing every month 5/5

Look forward to seeing every month
Account management 2/5
Evaluating your own account status is essentially impossible. System is set up to buy more, period. Difficult to stop.
Horrible service 1/5
I have paid for two magazines, they have cleared my credit card, but no magazines. Very poor customer service when I’ve approached them. Those were annual subscriptions and nothing.
I like it but.., 3/5
How can you download magazines (Sound on Sound) to your phone for offline use (like if I was in an aiplane?) I still haven’t figured that out. Could someone tell me please?
Bought a subscription to a magazine using the app - the magazine never appears in my library. I have to write to them and say hey can I have my magazine and they say but you do and then... oh it’s all such a waste of time. The desktop app doesn’t work either. Terrible experience for me
By frustrated 201
Stop spamming in library section 1/5
Yeah, stop please.
Need to track your subscriptions 4/5
ZINIO used to advise you on subscription renewals. No longer, why? In fact it no longer tells me when I have a new issue. Wish it were more friendly- the way it used to be..
Doesn’t save your place 3/5
By lost in my reading
The app is pleasant looking, but it doesn’t save your place in whatever you’re reading. I got a subscription to Harpers mag and each time I reopen the app I have to find my place in whatever article I’m reading.
Biased to portrait orientation 3/5
It’s a decent app but it’s pretty clear it is not tested very well in landscape orientation. Lots of bugs in that orientation
Good App 5/5
Love it. Does the trick keeps magazines organized. Price is right and lots to choose from.
Had 2 subscriptions. The Weight Watchers never did work. Contacted you several times, didn’t help. Won’t use this again!!!
Crap in a app!! 1/5
When I payed for my subscription I was able to save my PDFs of the magazine I payed for not have to be stuck to some app to access what I payed for!!! Now after my subscription is up I will redue my magazine and pick a digital service that lets me save my files that I pay for. I don’t like being forced into something half way through a subscription this is in fact wrong if not boardline illegal. Now to have the rest of my pdf magazine together I have to go back and repurchase my PDFs that I can not get from your app but of course can go re pay for something. This is wrong and the greedy ceo of this app knows it I would give s zero star if I could I hate that I’m stuck with this crap app half way into my subscription!!!
Not enhancing the experience 2/5
It's a container that allows you to read protected content, but it doesn't have helpful syncing of bookmarks or other annotation features that would make it more than a simple reader. Even my phone’s photo app provides more annotation functions and syncing than this app. I'd love to see advanced functionality for this app with unique content.
EMagazines the Best 5/5
I have been a customer since ZINIO started. I prefer getting all my favorite magazines on ZINIO. I like the library and not having to recycle old issues.
IT’S A CON. 1/5
I have digital to subscriptions through this app for several magazines and cannot access any of them and when I went to Customer Service, all they did was give me the runaround. None of their solutions worked, my money went down the drain. Don’t bother.
Easy peasy 5/5
Easy to use, lots of choices, does what it’s meant to do.
Have been dealing with their support for a couple of weeks trying to get a current edition of one of my magazine subscriptions. They say they are having problems getting it downloaded and they are working on it. They send stupid emails daily asking me if I reviewed their response. Daily I send responses back stating I am tired of responding to them that they can’t seem to do their job!
Worked in IT for 25+ years, would have been fired if issues lasted weeks. Support seems to be offshore, they don’t understand or they don’t care what is being written.
Beware. I tried to buy a magazine and it threw an error but charged my account anyway. Now I have a hassle to try to get a refund through Apple. Not happy.

No more interactive National Geographic
Really amazing experience now gone.
Very good app. 5/5
I love being able to read magazines with Zinio. Lots of content to choose from. I would like to be able to highlight content and be able to file articles somehow. App does it's main function very well. I love the text view that lets me change font size and still see all the photos!
Not Consistant or Intuitive 2/5
Every time I try to use it, I have to call Kalmbach, for new instructions. I have no options but to use it, beiñg a quadriplegic with a mouth stylus and a bad habit (trains), so I’d rate it much higher if I could consistently use it.
It won’t let me print my whole pattern. I can’t print from my phone at all.
Where’s the new issues. 1/5
I downloaded this app and still waiting for the new issues? Doesn’t seem to update new issues that are out?
What happened to all of my old issues? 1/5
By mo 405
I updated your app. And now all of my old Entertainment Weekly issues are gone! How do I get them back immediately?
Great app to read Magazine 5/5
I have been using this app for many years now and your local library will give you access to free magazines
Could Offer Renewals in Obvious Location 2/5
Hard to renew subscriptions. Some subscriptions just stop. Instead of 11, I got 9.
Popup ads inside the app . . . 3/5
This would be a good app but I really don’t want to be accosted every time I want to read a magazine.
By tird of this crap adds !!!
Delete a magazine that is advertising such as wine enthusiast is to hard to delete! I didn’t order it and don’t want it!!!
ZINIO is great except- 3/5
When I stop reading a magazine and then try to go back to finish it later, ZINIO doesn’t remember where I was. It actually goes back to the book shelf so I have to pick the right magazine. It does remember where I am if it’s only a few minutes between readings, but even then it doesn’t go to the part of the article I had just read. It goes to the beginning of that article. So it takes a good minute to get back to where I was and sometimes I only have a couple of minutes to kill.
Used to Be Great. . . But Now. . . 1/5
By Santa Fe Sue
Zinio is adequate as a place holder for the 5 or 6 subscriptions I currently have through this app. In that respect Zinio is better than having paper pile up in my house and then have to be recycled.
However, for account questions and management, Zinio could not be any worse than it already is. Not only is is cumbersome or impossible to make account changes easily, but also if you DO manage, after MUCH difficulty, to connect with a so-called service rep (possible only online, not by phone), he or she has very limited skills to override any Zinio deficiencies. As just one example, I want to stop all my automatic sub renewals, but there is no easy, obvious way to do that. Zinio was GREAT when it started—intuitive and easy. Now, after perhaps an AI robot got involved, it is an impenetrable nightmare for account changes.
Buy, buy, buy! 1/5
You can’t access the magazines you have purchased directly - you have to go through their sales pitch page every time you open the app. Then when you select your library to view your magzines a pop-up add appears EVERY TIME! These folks would make excellent used-car salesmen.
