Note: The newest upgrade to Zinio for Libraries is scheduled to be released March 10, 2015. Planned improvements include:
• One Account – New patrons will create only ONE account to register for Zinio (no need to create dual accounts between both Zinio for Libraries and zinio.com).
• New One Account apps for iPad and Android devices (iPhone and Kindle Fire HD/HDX users will still utilize the existing dual account protocol until apps for those devices are released later this year)
• All new users accessing Zinio for Libraries through their Mac (Safari, Chrome, Firefox) or PC (IE10+, Chrome, Firefox) will benefit from the simpler account registration and enhancements to the user interface.
• Please note that existing apps will remain active and patrons can continue to access any content they may have purchased through the Zinio commercial site. To enjoy the enhancements on the new Zinio for Libraries app, existing users will be required to download the NEW app onto their device (it will not appear as an update to their existing app), and any content they have accessed through their library account will automatically appear on the new app.
