Zinio, a global leader in digital publishing technology and services, further enhanced its UNITY platform by creating localized versions of its iPad and iPhone apps in nine countries. Designed to create a high-definition experience for readers to explore, enjoy and buy content once and read anywhere, the localized Zinio App will serve as the gateway to more than 2500 full-color magazines, worldwide. Last week, the iPad was delivered to consumers who pre-ordered devices in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The free Zinio App, which ranked #1 within its first week of launch in the United States, offers the most popular international publishers and magazines including Condé Nast (France, Vogue); ¡HOLA! (Spain, ¡Hola!); IPC Media (United Kingdom, Wallpaper*); Mondadori (Italy, Focus); and Televisa (Mexico, Caras). These titles are just several of more than 2500 magazine titles to which reading fans now have access, without boundaries. Over 829 new consumer titles have joined Zinio’s newsstand in the first quarter alone, representing the continued movement to a global digital-distribution strategy.
“A true pioneer, Zinio is the only company in the world to bring the largest newsstand to the digital desktop in a localized shopping environment,” said Joan Solá, President, International at Zinio. “As devices like the iPad continue to revolutionize the way we experience high-definition content, Zinio represents the convergence between consumer convenience and technological innovation.”
The Zinio App for iPad is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at itunes.com/appstore
