The ultimate app for magazine lovers is ready for Android 2.2, 3.0 and 3.1. Get thousands of magazines instantly, many with special interactive features built especially for your Android device. Discover the premier mobile reading experience.
Zinio’s Android app, which has recently been unveiled for Honeycomb tablets, is no longer limited to select few markets. Rather, users from all around the world can now access and read various magazines from their phones and tablets.
On Friday Zinio added support for Google Android handsets, bringing content from more than 1,000 digital magazine publishers to smartphones and small tablets running Android versions 2.2 and 2.3, approximately 78 percent of all phones currently powered by Google.
The application requires that your device runs Android 2.2 or higher, meaning pretty much any smartphone or tablet bought this year will do the job just fine.
Although Zinio hasn’t mentioned this in their news release, I suspect more Android phones will come with the Zinio client pre-loaded. you may have noticed that Zinio was already on the phone, for example. Those types of pre-installation partnerships between Zinio and carriers are likely to help attract digital magazine readers, perhaps even more than having the free Zinio software available in the Android Market.
You can start to browse magazine content within a minute or two of starting a magazine download, but the optimal experience won’t happen until the entire title is downloaded. Until the magazine completely loads high-quality page images, it can show some text fuzziness when zooming in. And on the 3.7-inch, 800×480 resolution display of the new myTouch phone, there’s plenty of zooming required.
If you’re reading magazines on Zinio — and you already can with an Apple iPhone, iPod touch or iPad — I’d be curious what device you use most to do so: a tablet, a computer or a smartphone?
Google has added the ability to ignore specific user accounts and strengthened its option to block accounts on its new social network Google+, the company announced in a note Friday.
From the launch of the service Google offered the means to block users totally. However, the problem with this is that it completely cut them off; they could not see what you were doing, and you could not see anything about them. If you don’t completely hate the person, but just don’t want to see what they post all the time, there is a way to do that now.
This improved blocking option will no doubt provide Google+ members with a better overall experience.
Wichrowska explained in a video demonstration that using the ignore option means you’ll see less of what a particular person is sharing, while allowing them to continue to interact with your own Google+ activity. Posts from ignored accounts won’t be displayed in your incoming stream. You also won’t be notified when they interact with your posts and you won’t see ignored people on your Circles page.
The option to ignore and block an account is available on multiple places throughout Google+ (comments, activity stream, profiles and on the notification tool bar). Google+ doesn’t notify users when they’ve been ignored or blocked, which is similar to Facebook’s functionality.
Letting Google+ members anonymously block and ignore accounts makes sense — especially since the company is planning to launch a business version of the social network in the coming months that will no doubt flood the space with marketers and unapologetic self-promoters.
