Zinio for Libraries App
The Zinio for Libraries mobile app is currently available for the iPad and Android for free in the corresponding app stores. (This app will be available soon for iPhone/iPod touch and Kindle Fire/Fire HD.)
Right now, for the iPhone, you can search for the Zinio.com app (not the Zinio for Libraries app) in the app store, or follow this link on your device: Get the iPhone/iPod touch app.
The Kindle Fire HD/HDX app is not currently available through their app store, so you will be required to load the app from outside the app store: Get the Kindle Fire HD/HDX app.
The Zinio for Libraries app for the iPhone and Kindle Fire/Fire HD is scheduled for 2015 at which time there would be no need to visit the Zinio.com commercial site.
Keep in mind that your commercial app collection may contain materials not associated with your library collection.
