My favourite app for the iPad is Zinio, the magazine reader. I don’t have a single paper magazine subscription left (living in Tokyo killed that). Flipboard is a close second, but the content is hit or miss and I enjoy paying for this content.
With a hectic travel, work and family schedule I find myself reading more and more magazine content as it allows me to dive in and out. The content is very targeted, allowing me to read based upon my particular mood. Feel like learning, HBR. Gadget minded … T3. Love the application.
The interesting thing is that in the era of massive decline of the print industry, I have never had so many magazine subscriptions or spent so much money in my life. In the past, I was maxed out at 2 or 3 – now I have 12. A testament to usability and digital convenience.
Here is my Zinio list, in no particular order:
- Harvard Business Review
- Mental Floss
- Men’s Journal
- Fast Company
- PC Magazine
- Popular Science
My only gripe? I wish I was reading it on a Samsung Android 10 inch Note, not our corporate standard … The iPad.
I miss my Samsung tablet.
