My iPad accompanies most places these days, if for no other reason than to provide reading material during downtime. I am especially impressed with the graphics and ease of use of magazines on this device.
Naturally, this article left me dismayed:
I am a bit frustrated with the periodicals in Zinio, mostly because I haven't found anyway to bookmark the magazines in that app. I rarely read an entire magazine in one sitting, so this is a bit annoying, but hardly a deal-breaker. I love being able to archive back issues without the need to store large piles of dead trees, especially with something like Harvard Business Review.
I just assumed I was not the only one.
Sure, some of the other magazine-apps provide interactive tools and links to more information; it would be great if every periodical made this jump.
And if I'm looking for something to read in the whirlpool, well, I think I will stick with dead trees for their lower disaster potential if dropped.
So, loyal readers, what do you think? Do you like reading magazines online, or are you siding with the majority here?
By the way, if anyone knows how to "hold your place" in Zinio, please let me know in the comments.
