So, you’re keen to try out Country Life in digital format, but don’t know where to start? This little summary of Zinio and Magzter, as well as the differences between the two, should be the nudge you need to get digital.
Platforms and app stores
First, what are Zinio and Magzter? These are the free apps you can use to buy digital magazines, including ours and the other Caxton titles. You can download these handy tools from your preferred online store, such as iTunes or Google Play (for Android). Just visit one of these locations, search for Zinio or Magzter, hit ‘download’ and then open the app. You’ll need to register the first time you open it.
Wait, what if you only use a laptop or desktop? No problem. You can download the desktop reader and you’re set to download and read magazines on your PC or Mac.
Step by step
Now, if you use a tablet or phone, how do you go about getting Country Life downloaded to the app? Again, it’s simpler than you might think.
- Open the app and locate the ‘search’ box;
- Type in ‘Country Life’;
- Select us when our latest cover shows up;
- Now you need to decide whether you want a subscription (if so, for how long) or a single edition (which could include a back issue!);
- Make your selection and then it’s time to pay.
That begs the question: how do you pay for magazines online? They’ve made it very easy. Both platforms use a highly secure credit card payment system and the globally respected PayPal (or payment with your iTunes account if you’re using the iPad app).
All that remains is to download your magazine and enjoy!
