The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.7
Zinio Reader is a magazines' reader to be used with Zinio service. Zinio is a service that allows you to buy magazines in digital format, that you will be able to download and read in your computer, at a fraction of the cost of the paper issues.
In order to be able to read any magazine, you should create an account and buy the magazines you want to read (or ask for a free magazine) beforehand at www.zinio.com. You can choose between lots of different magazines, covering a wide range of topics, both in English and Spanish. Then, using Zinio Reader, you will be able to download the magazines to your computer and read them, among several features. Zinio Reader allows to cycle through pages by using the cursor movement keys or PgDn/PgUp keys. You can zoom in or zoom out to see the pages in a larger size or go back to standard. In every moment you can go to the Table of Contents. You can stick post-it notes to any page of the magazine, writing whatever you like. You can also print out any page or the whole magazine if you want. In some cases, depending on each magazine's license, you will be able to send free copies of a magazine to a friend by e-mail. You can check for new magazines available for you to download (from a subscription) at any moment. Zinio Reader even allows you to search for a word or expression in the whole magazine.

    Appalling piece of software. It takes hours to download a single magazine and then consumers vast amounts of memory in use.

    After a virus I had to reformat my hard drive and now I need to download a version of Zinio suitable for windows 7, but all the options that I have found tell me that I must first upgrade to windows 8.1, but my computer is not adequate. Where can I find a program to read my library on this computer?

    It's terrible software. It's slow. The more pages you view the more memory it uses. I have to shut it down about every 60 pages as it slowly consumes RAM. The interface is disgusting.
    I could not recommend this to anyone.
