Any limitations? Are you paying with local or foreign credit card? Most optimum performance requirements?

Guess you refer to the iTunes App Zinio - to download magazines yes?

I got it linked with a Belgian and US account on iTunes which are on their side linked with their credit card or vouchers. No issues as the "international store" selection lets you freely connect to other countries.
There might be restrictions EG the US store not offering Iranian magazines on Nuclear science or the Vatican store not offering FHM :lol:

I mainly download "Stuff" magazine - half price of the hard-copies sold in Eslite and I saved a tree or two since.

Nope, not the iTunes thinghie, the website thinghie. That is AFAIK. I am using a Windows based ASUS laptop for personal endeavors like this.

But thank you for your feedback, it should work just the same, me thinks.

Oh, didn't know they had a www version. PC is so passé :wink:

Succeeded to log-in with the same account but:
1. Seems no "Sync" is foreseen between the www and the App. Can't be the things stand alone, and if so - :thumbsdown:
2. I took Stuff again as reference search and failed finding monthly downloads on the www. Only a yearly subscription. :thumbsdown:

Yep. Zinio is charging like 2000nts for a year of the magazine I want, while the magazine itself wants about 30 bucks for the electronic version, the paper version is over 50 usd yearly suscription.

I think the electronic version would be "safer", won't get lost in the mail. It says it can be read on iPad, iPhone, PSP and PC. Sincerely, I think anything that is not a tablet is just too small.
