Zinio the biscuit edition (light & flakey)

Doesn't store locally or if it does it's inconsistent. Was going on a multi hour train ride and thought it would be a great time to read. I downloaded a few magazines but when I was on the train with no internet connection they didn't load up. A few screens loaded but not enough to read an article. I made sure to download these fully before I left. iPad and Android apps are a billion times better than this.

unable to view offline in windows 10

there doesn't appear to be a way to view offline. while connected, I downloaded a few magazines, but they always show as needing to be downloaded and when not connected I get a message that says I must be connected .useless to me if I cannot view offline. Sorry I wasted money buying the magazines.

Win10 Version won't let me sign in my account

I love Zinio and maybe this app works fine when signing up for a new account but I can't log in to my existing account so thumbs down for this X-Box version. November 2013 update - sadly this app is still worthless on my Win8.1 desktop. This is really sad because it's a great app on the Ipad. March 2014 and this app still won't allow entry of a password. Don't bother with this app - just use your browser to view library contents. Still can't sign in on Windows 10

Just does not work

I have used Zinio for years with few problems, but with Win8 I can not log in. Log in just freezes up after putting in email address. I have an account and it works fine with Win7. Microsoft should remove this app from the store,(IMO) I am now using Windows 10 and have the same problem.

Easy to use- and it helps make my more accessible.

Colorful graphics tie in nicely with the stories

Almost awesome but very good.

Could use double tap for zoom on tablets and touch screens. Also you can't go to articles from the magazines contents page like I can on android version? Other than that works great on my Venue 8 pro.

Cool idea, failed execution

Requires constant internet connection and takes a long time to load pages. Even then it does not load all of the pages. Nothing appears to ever really download.

A Big Disappointment

I've seen this app in action on friend's iPads so thought it would be a great addition to the apps on my Windows. There is no way to zoom in and out to make it easier to read on the desktop app and movements between pages and magazines is just not fluid. I would have loved to like this app more but I just can't and won't. I'll definitely be looking for an alternative app and if one does not exist. But be sure I'll abandon this app all together.

Poor desktop usage & low res look

It's hard to believe how bad this app is taken into account zinio is one of the most popular emagazine shops. Usage on a desktop PC feels like an afterthought and the resolution on my 1080p monitor is so bad i have to zoom in to actually be able to read any of the blurry text. Moreover this app doesn't seem to get any improvements as i still encounter bugs that have been there for years already.

Good except for one thing...

App works beautifully, except on hi res screens (200+ PPI) it won't "snap" into focus so text stays blurry regardless of zoom level. Android version works perfectly on same screen so no excuses - fix please!
