    Pros: 

    Not sure yet

    Cons: 

    You have to sign up to find out if the mag you want is available

    I couldn't get past the site. I was trying to search to see if they carried Dwell for example. Horrible user experience, and I wasn't willing to create an account just to find out they don't have the magazines I want. I still prefer my hard copies being a book lover but I like the idea of this site as it could be useful when traveling or finding content from past issues.

    Cosmo Jones has used this product for one day.

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!

how do you position yourself in light of Issuu?

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!
