New features include:
- Reading List – a seamless, up to the minute stream of select articles from trending magazines and full issues from user libraries, available offline and online

There was no date mentioned on when the Zinio Windows Phone 8 app will be released. The press release did mention that the app will "be exclusive to Nokia Lumia customers at launch" so hopefully Zinio will be available for all Windows Phone 8 devices shortly after release. It looks like a promising app and service for the Windows Phone platform.
