    I don't know if anyone else has tried, but Zinio has announced that you can view their magazines for free on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

    The news releases suggest simply going to www.zinio.com/iphone
    I try that and it keeps redirecting me back to this page: http://img.zinio.com/iphone/info/

    Does anyone have zinio.com/iphone working on their Touch?

    Thanks,

    Anyone else? Perhaps anyone with an iPhone? I also noticed that many APPS did nothing on my 8gig jailbroken Touch when those with iPhones claimed they worked well. Just trying to determine if there is a difference in the way web sites recognize iPhone VS Touch.

    Yea I do know that.
    The iPhone & Ipod Touch identify themselfs different.
    I have tried some pages on my touch and it said please visit back on an iPhone or something like that.

    Anyone know how to contact Zinio to get them to identify the Touch?

    Thanks, a113524c;81872. I've sent them a notice. Now begins the wait. I'll post back here when I get a response and what it says.

    Yep, I've already found Texterity. I just assumed everyone else already knew about it. There were only a couple of magazines on that site that I had an interest in, and they are monthy so once read there is nothing to do but wait a month. I suspect Zinio is trying to do the same to be competitive, hoping that once iPhone and iTouch users find a magazine they like (for free) they might subscribe to a print version or at least subscribe to a better (bigger) view on their PC monitor.
