Initially launched on Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets, Zinio, one of the most popular universal newsstands, is now available for all current Android devices, including Froyo and Gingerbread smartphones.
Along with the expansion to Froyo and Gingerbread devices, Zinio gives away to new Android users 12 current issues to popular magazine titles through August 15, including: Bike Magazine, BlackBook, ESPN The Magazine, House Beautiful, Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine, Maxim, Outdoor Photographer, Redbook, Robb Report, Seattle Met, SURFER Magazine and Wine Enthusiast.
Furthermore, T-Mobile subscribers who are new users of Zinio's Android service will be allowed to select an additional 5 free titles from T-Mobile's “Freemium” offering in the USA, which can be found inside the library of the Zinio Android app.
“Our goal is to give every magazine lover worldwide, regardless of platform, an immersive and seamless way to connect to and engage with their favorite stories – creating a comprehensive and compelling newsstand that is controlled by the individual and customized to their interests,” said Rich Maggiotto, Zinio President & CEO.
Zinio Android users can access one of the largest collection of magazines, which includes over a hundred thousand issues from 1,000 major consumer magazines publishers globally, with shops in 33 languages and selling in 20 different currencies.
The application includes issues with enhanced capabilities, such as interactive features and rich media right inside the pages of magazines.
“Extending deeper into the Android ecosystem on a global scale continues to help move us in this direction,” concluded Maggiotto.
Zinio is now available on multiple platforms, including PCs, Macs, Linux, iOS, Android, Win7 (beta) and WebOS, but the company stated that a RIM application would be launched soon, as well.
Those who wish to experience Zinio can find the application as a free download inside Google's Android Market.
