  • From Movies to Magazines! Honeycomb is getting ROLLING!.... Now all we need... GOOGLE... is a TAB in the Market for Honeycomb APPS!... They overlook the most basic details with the damn market
  • Doesn't work very well. Forced close on all but one magazine.
  • Yay!
  • Worked great here. Looked at a few mags. Even bought a copy of PC Mag. No problems other that getting used to the interface on it just a bit. No FCs for me. I have been wanting a Zinio reader app for my Incredible for a year now though. Ugh.
  • Dl'd last night. Looks awesome. Not a single problem. Though the prices seem a bit high compared to the print versions.
  • I'd love something like this that lets me access magazines I already subscribe to without having to pay for them again...
  • I have Zinio installed on original iPad and find it very slow to respond. I am hoping running Zinio on my Acer Iconia A500 will be quicker. I will find out tonight when I download it. I also agree that Honeycomb tablet apps should have a separate section in the Google Market.
  • Had used a version on a Galaxy Tab which went back the store. It required an internet connection when opening the program. Thus, didn't work in a plane. Anyone know if this does the same thing? Will it work in airplane mode. I use Zinio a lot on my iPad and would love to switch to an Android tab, but really need Zinio to work first.
  • Wish it worked on phones too. Not just tablets
  • Works on my Samsung Charge.
  • The ios version works on all devices not just ipad
