HELSINKI, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zinio, the ultimate app for digital readers, has launched an app now available exclusively for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices. The app allows readers to buy, download, read and subscribe to some of their favorite magazines from around the world – from Rolling Stone and Men's Health, to GQ in France and Marie Claire in Russia – and explore content from publications before it hits the stands.

The Zinio app for Lumia provides consumers with a variety of specialized features that makes digital reading easier and more personalized than ever before. These additions include the Zinio Reading List, which provides a real-time stream of select articles from trending magazines and full issues from users' subscriptions, while current magazine subscriptions are automatically fed into consumer libraries. The Reading List continues to update whether users are online or offline. The exclusive app's customized features allow digital readers to define their own areas of interest from a range of magazine topics, such as epicurean, lifestyle, fitness and sports. Filtering tailored content directly into their personalized Reading List, consumers can read a free article matching their interests and are given the opportunity to buy the entire issue or subscribe to the title.

Through improved text mode support that makes copy cleaner and easier to read and Nokia's ClearBlack™ phone displays, which gives deeper blacks and better viewing angles, people receive an enhanced viewing and reading experience in any environment, whether at home on a rainy day or outdoors enjoying the sunshine. The Zinio app also provides live tile support for Lumia owners, as well as bookmarks, pinning and much more.
