Zinio has announced that it is developing a Nokia Lumia exclusive digital magazine app. It will take advantage of Microsoft Live Tiles to show you new editions that are automatically synced and delivered to your phone. There are a number of new enhancements found in this new app that are not found anywhere else. There is a preference picker that allows users to define the article stream in their Reading List by area of interest and gives you a sense of the type of magazines that would appeal to your area of interest.
“We’re delighted to bring Zinio’s leading app experience to Nokia Lumia smartphones with Windows Phone 8,” said Bryan Biniak, VP for Global Partner & App Development at Nokia. “Our ClearBlack phone displays are packed full of technology that delivers an enhanced viewing and reading experience in all conditions, be that at home or out and about on a sunny day.”
Michelle Bottomley, President of Zinio, states, “Nokia Lumia smartphones with Windows Phone 8 were the perfect platform for Zinio to bring the future of digital magazine reading for discerning digital readers. We’ve rethought every portion of our smartphone reading experience to be as intuitive as possible, allowing digital readers to fully immerse themselves in the magazine content that connects them with their diverse interests.”
