Zinio is all set to make a grand debut on the Windows 8 mobile store but with a difference. The windows version of the app will have a lot more to offer than its iOS and Android counterparts. If rumors are true, the app will be available exclusively on the Lumia series from Nokia and not other Windows 8 devices like HTC and Samsung. With the new app, Nokia users will have plenty to read since Zinio’s magazine collection is phenomenal! From sports magazines to home improvements, nature and science to women’s exclusive, Zinio has it all.

The app aims to discover content from a number of sources and present these to the reader. The app interface itself has undergone a number of changes like presenting a new reading list, articles presented to the user regularly from popular  magazines as well as those readers have subscribed to.  The app offers a setting where users can choose magazines of their interest and receive articles and updates only from these. The relevant articles with be downloaded in the background.

Lumia users are very excited about this new development. Avid readers will look forward to updated issues of their favorite magazines while other users can browse content from multiple sources to find articles that interest them. The windows app store is getting richer with increasing number developers creating apps for this platform.
