When I click on my magazine to open it I get the message "Adobe Flash has crashed" that's it no help, nothing else. How am I supposed to fix this??? Searching your "un"-knowledgebase on "flash crash", "adobe flash" or "crash" produces no results!!!

Efficiently and effectively for us in prior incarnations. Ease of use features encouraged multiple projects. Looking forward to any new modalities.

Zinio has managed to take a mediocre program to new lows. The latest version absolutely sucks. Can't get to most of my magazines and is totally non-intuitive. I've used this service for years and now I'm totally done with it despite the massive investment in magazines that can only be read on their program.

I was forced to read PC World via digital app. This is the one the publisher used. worked for a short while. I started it on an old Kindle, all of a sudden they up graded to enhanced version, no longer works on the Kindle, CPU wrong version. Was forced to go to Android (had to spend over $200 on new device). Worked for under 1 month then an up grade (9/15/15) occurred, now no longer can use the app. Looking at reviews many other have the same problem. Support said (9/18/15) there was a fix, installed it and still does not work. Then went to my Win 8.1 machine and installed, there it will not even get to sign on screen. Wish I could read it with another tool.

The Windows 8 version of the Zinio ap is archaically designed as it requires an active WIFI connection to allow access to magazines and publications I previously downloaded. I don't have this problem with my Android devices and friends don't have this problem with iOS devices. Per the zinio help page regarding download and viewing using the Win 8 ap, "If you know you will not have an internet connection please ensure you don’t sign out of the Zinio Win8 App as you need an internet connection to sign in and read your downloaded publications." This means I have to keep the computer running for days! Constant wifi is needed I refer to older articles and sometimes re-read articles. I purchased these magazines and have the right to do this; When and where I want to read the articles! Note that there is only "live chat" and email customer support. Nowhere does zinio offer a phone number for support or to escalate a problem. zinio does a good job to insulate itself from it's customers.

Very unpleasant to use on a 1920x1080 screen as the print is blury due to low resolution of the magazines. I have to zoom in on every page to read text.

The lack of ability to zoom, and to download for offline reading, has made this app nearly worthless for me.

I can't create a new signon account, 'there is a system failure'. This is so sad when Microsoft rushes to fill the app store with such poor quality apps.

I've seen this app in action on friend's iPads so thought it would be a great addition to the apps on my Windows. There is no way to zoom in and out to make it easier to read on the desktop app and movements between pages and magazines is just not fluid. I would have loved to like this app more but I just can't and won't. I'll definitely be looking for an alternative app and if one does not exist. But be sure I'll abandon this app all together.
