What Works with Zinio
Zinio works on your PC or Mac, iOS and Android devices including most smart phones, the iPad & iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Google Nexus, Coby Kyrus, Microsoft Surface, and Kindle Fire or HD. The app should also work with the Nook HD or HD+, although there have been issues getting the Nook app to work.However, on the Nook HD or HD+, you can still read magazines by using the built in web browser. Using the web browser isn’t as integrated an experience as the Zinio app, but you can access the service.
The Zinio app unfortunately does not work with dedicated ereaders such as the Nook SImple Touch, Kindle Touch, or older Kindle models.
With Zinio you need either a web browser or the Zinio app.

Zinio is different from our other products in that you will need to create two account logins, one to browse the collection and get content and one to read magazines or deliver them to the Zinio app.
It may seem complex at first, but once you create your accounts and begin subscribing to magazines it becomes easy.
Full instructions and more can be found on the Digital Branch’s under Digital Download Information.
If you have any problems accessing or using Zinio contact the library at 580-4555, stop by a reference desk, or come to a Computer & Gadget Drop In session.
