WOiP Tip: Read Free Mags On Your iPhone

On October 6, 2008

I went to download the latest electronic edition issue of MacWorld to read on my iMac, and, thanks to Zinio, I was reminded that ZinioLabs offers a number of magazines free of charge via their iPhone web app.

The magazines include MacWorld, Men’s Health, U.S. News and World Report and (shameless plug since I have 3 articles in it) the premier issue of iPhone Life.

According to Zinio you can–



-Browse Zinio’s top-selling titles free on your iPhone and iPod Touch

-Read super high resolution content, with iPhone and iPod Touch friendly controls and features

-Share your favorite pages with friends through iPhone mail

Sure, reading a full magazine on an iPhone isn’t ideal, and since the articles don’t scale down for the iPhone well, they take more than a bit of pinching and flicking to actually read. 

Bear in mind, however, they are free, and available on the iPhone.  That makes it a very nice way to get some top magazines quickly and easily.

You can access it from you iPhone at
