Digital newsstand Zinio has plans for a new Windows 8 app. The company has formed a partnership with Nokia to launch its app exclusively on Nokia Lumia smartphones. The partnership will include special magazine promotions for Nokia Lumia customers.
The app has been optimized for the Windows Phone 8 platform on Lumia devices. One new feature in this app is that content from multiple sources will be in one place, so you don’t have to launch into a new magazine to read articles from different sources. It also includes a new preference picker so that users can curate their reading list by area of interest.
Michelle Bottomley, president of Zinio, stated, “Nokia Lumia smartphones with Windows Phone 8 were the perfect platform for Zinio to bring the future of digital magazine reading for discerning digital readers. We’ve rethought every portion of our smartphone reading experience to be as intuitive as possible, allowing digital readers to fully immerse themselves in the magazine content that connects them with their diverse interests.”
