Zinio Launches Digital Edition for United States Tennis Association
Zinio has teamed up with the United States Tennis Association for a 106-page digital edition of USTA Magazine, going out to USTAâ€™s 742,000 members.
The new launch is part of the second phase of its â€śUnityâ€ť platform, touting design optimization for digital editions. Some of the dynamic features include animation, scrolling text, a cover that rotates eight images of iconic tennis movements and a â€śpoppingâ€ť sound of a racquet hitting a ball when the reader changes pages.
Earlier this month, Zinio launched a new iPhone app as the first stage in its Unity Platform.
