Digital Magazine Search Service Launched
Zinio’s Inside enables users to search, send digital magazines for free.
Digital magazine vendor Zinio Thursday announced the launch of Zinio Inside, a service that enables publishers and users to search content within digital magazine products.
“If you or your company are covered in a magazine and you want to share it, who wants to send a link to a site when you can send the actual layout,” a Zinio spokesperson wrote in an e-mail to FOLIO:. “No one else does this.”
The service—which is free to users and to publishers who currently have an account with Zinio—lets users send digital “replicas” of magazine pages over e-mail and post articles to Web sites and blogs and social networking sites like Facebook and Digg. In addition to the search functionality, Zinio Inside can also suggest additional editorial content and offer purchasing options for either a single issue or a 12-month subscription.
Zinio Inside will launch with more than 1,000 magazine titles in the company’s digital library, Zinio says.
