Online Reader

Q: What's the Online Reader?

A: Well first, it’s a reader that can be accessed online, through your web browser—no software installations or downloads required. In the past, all issues were downloaded to your computer (along with the Zinio Reader) to be read offline. By bringing the reading experience online, we’re recreating the same great reading experience, and providing you the immediacy and convenience of online—thereby giving you a choice about how you want to read your digital magazines.
