I used to love magazines! Had a few subscriptions and used to read them all the time. Sadly I think the increased use of Social Media (for me) has replaced Mag reading. I do like when I'm in a waiting room or coffee shop and there is a cool magazine I can have a flick through. For me, a Magazine needs to be a physical thing and I suppose its like the rare physical book I pick up as opposed to reading via my phone. It's like a special occasion then and gives a different experience. That being said, I know that lots of people are magazine buffs and read them religiously, this could definitely be a great solution to reading on the go.

@bentossell well crafted and designed magazines are a joy to flip through indeed.

When you live abroad, you can't get your usual magazines. Hope this will help!

I have been using this for quite a while here in Canada as they recently rebranded. It works really well and they have lots of titles for any interest.

What differentiates this from zite & flipboard?

@preetnation I don't think that flipboard is a literal representation of the magazines, right? it just has certain articles as far as I know.

@_jacksmith correct you are. I'm with @bentossell and so are a lot of people I know, magazines are something that I enjoy being actual physical items. Could see this being a hit with travelers though!
