Zinio Reader

What is Zinio Reader?

Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand publisher in the Internet, and their free desktop application (simply called the Desktop Reader) takes advantage of this. Zinio, as a service, distributes and sells printed media in digital form, such as magazines, newspapers, research materials (such as theses and the like), and other periodical publications, and as of early 2012 is the world’s biggest disseminator of this kind of service.

These documents can be downloaded or viewed online from the Zinio website; the Zinio Desktop Reader is their proprietary document viewer that enables the viewing and reading of these documents if downloaded and the user wants to access them offline. The Desktop Reader is supported on a variety of platforms: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, and additionally, also supports a variety of mobile electronic devices such as iOS and Android devices. Zinio Reader is also available on BlackBerry as a free app.

Although the Zinio Desktop Reader is free, the magazines and other publications that it can access are usually not, and are protected by DRM (digital rights management) that prevent other users aside from the subscriber who downloaded them from accessing it, or it being re-circulated without paying the appropriate fees.
