    So how is Zinio different from Kindle, why should anyone choose a Zinio over a kindle ? Kindle has a APP upgraded for the Retina Display of the new iPad which I believe Zinio does not...Reading is going to be much more fun on the Kindle versus in Zinio because of the text appearing more sharper in Kindle's Retina Display APP.

    Since when does kindle have retina display? I've been using the Zinio app since it came out and it's display of magazines is great. I prefer the digital versions over the paper ones.

    I believe that the previous poster was referring to the Kindle app for the iPad.

    It all depends on what mags you get. Apple doesn't control who publishes Mags on the iPad and what they charge for them.

    I get MacLife, Maximum PC in the Newstand. They both are 0.99 an issue if you subscribe. I get PC Mag and Nat Geo in Zinio. It supports the retina display. They have good prices too and are offering various discounts all the time. Why not use Zinio? Amazon is not the only game in town.

    So u r saying for Certain Magazines Zinio does support a Retina Display ?

    One more thing also that I noticed is when you download a Magazine in ZINIO it dos not have a like the wat you Flip your finger from right to left to turn the page to the next page which is possible in Kndle is it possible in Zinio ?

    The free App Flipboard gives free access to magazine articles. For example, car fans will find several car mags within the 'Living' Section of Flipboard.

    Yes.

    To go from page to page you just swipe from right to left (next page) or left to right (previous page). Zinio is only about Magazines. If you are using it, how can you not notice it uses the retina display? Frankly, it is a very nice app for view magazine because it is so silky smooth. I use the Kindle app, too, but so far only for books, so I don't really know how well it works for magazines. I say go with what gives you the best price on the mag you want. Best to check them all, use them all, and view where you got the best deal.
