Hozinioipadw can I read the magazines on my computer?
You can read them right away from your browser while you're online. To read offline, install Zinio Desktop Reader.

How can I read the magazines on a tablet or smartphone?
Download the Zinio app to read magazines on your tablet or smartphone, after you set up your IPPL Zinio account.

Zinio has apps for the iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. For the Kindle Fire, click here for details. Currently, there is no Zinio app for Barnes & Noble's Nook devices.


My accounts are all set up. Do I use my app or IPPL to get new magazines?

Always choose your magazine through IPPL's website. You read the magazine using your Zinio Reader app.

Do I have to return the magazines? How long can I keep them?
One of the greatest features of Zinio is that once you download a magazine, you may keep it. However, when you select a magazine, you are not getting a subscription - just a single issue. You will need to add each month's issue from the IPPL Zinio page.

Why do I need two accounts?

Your IPPL Zinio account lets you access the magazines that IPPL has selected. Your Zinio.com account allows you to purchase magazines and personalize your own collection, view online or offline. Magazines added from IPPL's collection and those purchased through Zinio will show up in your Zinio.com account.
