    I have been with ZINIO from the beginning. Now I can’t access my magazines from years ago; there’s no information about purchases or anything before the “new” app; the “enhanced” layout options are jumbled and nonsensical; I am being charged for zinio pass which they discontinued without notice AND am not receiving my e-mags. Now I have gone to read logged in which wastes my data and I can’t access my mags although. Can see them. They also admit e-mags from the library are unavailable. I absolutely am going to find an alternative because this arrogant attitude toward the customer during this overhaul is symptomatic of more to come.
  • New update going in wrong direction

    This is a terrible update. The magazines used to be able to list by month. Now every magazine is only listed by issue name useless information. Like others have mentioned if you were saving issue to reread they are no longer marked. Please return to the old style whoever thought this was an improvement should be fired. Mike I guess all of the complaints that I’ve been reading about this update fell on deaf ears. In other responses it’s noted that you care about customer service. Apparently that’s not the case. I like others will be looking for a better platform. If I could give this app less then 1 star I would. Mike

    I was quite happy with the state of the app until this last update. Like others, I was annoyed that I lost all my downloads, not because I had to re-download them, but rather because I relied on the app to assist me in recalling what I had not yet read. A little communication (I.E. an email) that this was going to happen would have gone a long way - I would have simply clicked a few screenshots. Even more annoying, is the need re-archive multiple years of magazines ONE AT A TIME! The ability to bulk delete downloaded magazines is present, but not bulk archive. Issues also seem slower to download since the update. Lastly, I was a HUGE fan of the ability to view/sort magazines by year and months - PLEASE restore this feature. I was also partial to the dark background and hope that if you won’t dump the white completely, you’ll at least consider giving users the option. I now understand night mode is only for text mode, but still would prefer a dark background when viewing the magazine covers. Update 04/13/18 Today, I had to log out and back in, as my new issues were not updating and when I did, I discovered that all of my previously archived issues were no longer archived. I spent a ridiculous amount of time archiving all of these, as I simply want to view magazine issues that I haven’t yet read. I don’t think this is a radical idea and in fact, was easily possible before the last major update. If you’re not going to restore this ability, than at least give users the ability to bulk archive!!! Yes there is a filter for downloaded issues, but when a new issue is available, you won’t see it appear with this filter engaged.
  • Slow and not user friendly

    Used to love ZINIO but recently with the update, it has started to slow down and made downloading new issues impossible. The downloaded pauses and doesn’t fully load so the magazine is fuzzy and can’t be read properly. I tried reinstalling the app and re-downloading the new issues but it would still pause. Will have to switch over to Texture which is so much easier to use.
  • Wow. Did they beta test

    4-9-18 Still cannot delete old magazines. Hundreds show up and you have to individually delete them. And still 2 steps required to delete and not see a magazine after you have read it. Why make it so difficult??? Customer service at zinio is fading fast despite years use. Why do some companies think fall backwards and don’t listen to their customers after what they think is an improvement? And love reading their response to deleting magazines. Wow. Yes 2 steps is a pain and useless feature. I read a magazine and am done. When I select delete I expect it to be deleted and not be shown. But nope, you decided deleting isn’t deleting and I want to still see the hundreds of magazines I have read through the years. So now I have to select delete, than select archive to finally get rid of the magazine and not see it. Wow. Painful you couldn’t keep the old way, or do something that has been on the internet for years, delete means delete. Delete means I don’t want to see it anymore. Latest review. Just updated to latest version and now I have 8+ years of magazines I previously read showing up on my screen that I previously deleted. With the only way to delete them is one by one. I’ve got much better things to do with my time than sit and delete magazines for 2 hours. Seriously zinio creators, it’s very easy, I read a magazine and am down with it. That’s it’s, i than delete it and never read that magazine again. Very simple. Yet with your current app, it takes 2 steps to delete tat same magazine from my iPad. Why did you go through so much trouble to make your app non-user friendly? Do you want to fail? Every review says the same thing yet you did the opposite. Delete- we don’t want the magazine on our iPad or see it ever again. Archive- you don’t want to see it, but may read it later. Why make life so difficult with poor design? New review. Still have to select a magazine twice after you read in order to delete. Delete than archive. Pathetic. Why twice. F I want to delete, simply delete it. Don’t want it archived out of view. I want it deleted. just as all other sites and apps do. My wife just updated her zinio app and has 100 older magazines she previously read and have to manually select them one by one to get rid of them. Terrible. They all were previously deleted in old app, yet now appear with a thumbnail but you can’t mass delete them. Wow. Texture is looking better after each zinio app, and this is after using zinio from the beginning. Old review. 5 minutes with new update and imagine they asked a 5 year old to create this update. Archive? Delete? Which one do 8 do? Why archive a read magazine? I just want to delete. And why can’t I sort via month now? Only a general blob of magazines In one spot. Terrible, for what was a great app.
  • I must recant my negative review of the latest zinio update.

    I have decided to change my negative review to a positive one for a very good reason. The support department contacted me with regards to my issues downloading and seeing past purchases. They not only responded in a reasonable amount of time but showed me step by step how to access my magazines. Thank you zinio, you are again my favorite way to see my magazines.
  • Poor customer service

    I have had ZINIO for about a year. The latest update removed every one of my subscriptions. In talking to ZINIO, they have not solved the problem and don’t seem to be in any hurry to restore the number of subscriptions and magazines that I have paid for and cannot access. I’m pretty angry about having my money stolen in this manner. Use another subscription provider. These people just steel your money. Update: At least a week later and I am still getting the run around from this company, meanwhile, it’s been almost a month since I’ve been able to read magazines that I am paying for yet cannot access. It’s too bad one cannot leave minus stars on a review.
  • Annoying Ads

    By abuimad
    It’s too easy to click on an ad and get taken to safari, some magazines have pages after pages of ads, every time I click on a page to display the table of contents, it takes you to an ad, very frustrating, there needs to be a way to disable that

    The new update is huge improvement over previous versions. Very convenient & efficient to have your magazine subscriptions available on all your different devices.
  • Lost legacy support

    I'm not happy at all that I have an older iPad running iOS 8.4 & can no longer download new issues that I have already purchased. This renders the app completely useless. All of us can't afford new devices. I've also got an older iPhone running iOS 9, the app is very unstable on that device.
