Zinio is a popular digital newsstand service and a Windows Phone 8 app has been in the works. A few days ago, Zinio snuck in under the radar as an exclusive for the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices.
Zinio connects you to stories on current events, politics, technology, style and more. Plus it gives you an app to file under the "Z" alpha-tab.
Zinio's main pages cover a reading list of free articles from your favorite categories, a shop page where you can buy your digital subscriptions, and the obligatory "More" page.
You'll need a Zinio account (free) to fully appreciate the app which you can set up within the app itself. With the account you can buy subscriptions online at Zinio's website and access them from your Windows Phone.
Subscription services include publications such as Newsweek, Shutterbug, Outdoor Photographer, GQ, X-Box World, and Smart Money. Publications can be purchased by the issue or by annual subscription. Prices vary depending on the publication but just surfing through the choices it looks like $5 per issue is about standard with annual subscriptions running $15 and up.
Articles can be pinned to your Start Screen for easy access and downloaded for off-line reading. All in all, Zinio makes a nice first impression.
Zinio is a free app for Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices and can be found here in the Nokia Collection.
