    As a new user, one of the things I would like to do is read magazines on the iPad. However I've been a bit disappointed, not only as to the selection available, but the terrible reviews many publication apps have recieved in the apps store.

    Example: as a car guy, it seems that most car magazines cost as much as the printed versions (that I already receive). The iPad version of Sunset appears to be available for free to print subscribers (which I am not). And the reviews are horrible.

    It would seem that this would be a booming market - and one that would be easier for an old guy like me to get into.

    I feel like I'm missing something.

    So do you read magazines on the iPad? If so, which ones?

    I would appreciate your thoughts and experiences in this area.

    Thanks.

    Zinio is probably the best magazine app.

    A lot of magazines are only starting to offer digital editions and I'm sure soon the quality will be a lot better. Also many are already offering digital edition as part of their print subscription.

    Time and The Economist are free for print subscribers and I enjoy reading them in their app editions. I also get AARP and Consumer Reports. It takes a little fiddling but easy to read pages and articles are available for all of these. Do check your print magazines to see if an app is mentioned anywhere.

    Try Zinio. Many of the car magazines are $0.99/issue.

    I'm quite new to iPad too however a long time user of iPhone, I have used mags but find them costly really I have found that however the metro newspaper which is free is a good app to have and up to date, very Handy when either commuting or getting the park and ride bus, into towns and cities ect. Also no ink hands.

    Zinio looks like a Book/Newspaper Stand, it does not have a APP ? Does it ? If you buy a book or a newspaper from Zinio where does it get downloaded directly on your iPad or can u read it from your Kindle APP ?
