How do digital magazines work?

Posted Wednesday, August 9, 2017   |   6185 views   |   Tech & Gaming   |   Comments (0) Digital magazines can seem like an alien experience for devoted magazine fans. Where will you be without that new glossy magazine smell? The sound of the page turning? A quiet half hour to just devour the latest news and views on your favourite hobby?

Here at Pocketmags, we’re big fans of digital mags and promise you they’re just as good as print (if not better. Yes, really). For digital magazine virgins, here’s how digital magazines work – and more importantly, how they can work for you…

Same old same old

Digital magazines are every inch the magazines you know and love on the stands at newsagents or flying through your letterbox every week/month. You get access to all the same great features, articles, interviews and news, glossy photos and more – all at the touch of a button.

 

Easy reading

As digital magazines are created in PDF format, they’re easy to read on any screen. You can catch up with the latest issue on your computer screen, or read the latest news in portrait or landscape on your phone or tablet. Pages are swiped instead of turned and don’t get crumpled if someone grabs a read before you. You can also pinch zoom – no more reaching for your reading glasses! Simply drag and zoom with your fingers to get a closer look. 

Instant download

Whether you purchase a single issue or a subscription (or even a back issue or two), your digital magazine is instantly downloaded as soon as you’re connected online. For all subscribers, the latest issue is available as soon as it’s released by the publisher – no waiting around for the postman or making a quick dash to the newsagents. As long as you’re connected to WiFi (or 3G), you’ll find the latest issue of your favourite digital magazine waiting for you in your Pocketmags library. Nifty.

 

Enjoy offline

As long as you’ve downloaded your latest issue, you can access and read your favourite digital magazine offline; perfect if signal/WiFi is intermittent or non-existent (we’re looking at you, flight mode). We’re big fans of saving up a few issues pre-flight – not only are digital magazines a great way to kill time, but they save on your baggage allowance too. Why not download an issue for each member of the family to enjoy?

 

Easy being green

Digital magazines are – by their very nature – eco-friendly. Saving on the carbon footprint of printing, postage, packaging and recycling, it’s the natural choice for eco warriors. With a digital magazine subscription, you can read your favourite features safe in the knowledge you’re not contributing to deforestation or landfill. 


A library in your pocket

With a Pocketmags account (and the Pocketmags app), you’ve got a free digital library to dip into whenever you like, wherever you are. Every issue you’ve ever downloaded is available to read at the touch of a button – perfect if you want a recap of a great ‘how to’, or if you’re after a particular article to share with a friend. It also makes for a great space saver if you prefer to keep clutter to a minimum.

 

Adios commuter boredom

Saving on any extra weight in your work bag, digital magazines are a great commute-buster or time-filler. Dive into the latest issue if you’re twiddling your thumbs on the train or waiting in a queue. Whether you read via your internet browser or the Pocketmags app, your favourite read is just a tap away!
