Have Finweek, can travel
I HAVE TO ADMIT I’m a bit old school: I still like the feel of a newspaper as I page through it on a Sunday morning. It never occurred to me that reading magazines on my laptop or tablet could be really enjoyable. In an attempt to be more tech-savvy (and not fall behind the whiz kids) I’ve decided to subscribe to the digital edition of Finweek on Zinio.
Not familiar with Zinio? It’s the world’s largest newsstand and bookstore and offers more than a mobile reading application. Zinio has expertly created digital issues of the magazines we love and delivers exactly the same material we get in print – plus exclusive features, such as interactive graphics and videos for your iPad, iPhone, laptop and Android.
Basically, you can buy Finweek or any other popular magazine and read it on the screen of your choice. Zinio is great because it also allows you easy and affordable access to international content. On the SA Zinio website – http://za.zinio.com – you’ll find
Finweek in its “news” section under “business news”. You have several buying options: from a single issue of the magazine to a full annual digital subscription (50 issues) for only R782,89. If you prefer the Afrikaans version of the magazine it’s also available digitally. The registration process on the website is straightforward and only takes three minutes.
Buying online is just as simple and convenient: add the item to your basket and then proceed to check out. It’s literally a matter of seconds before you receive your digital issue of the magazine in your inbox. Then click on the cover and let the reading begin!
The digital navigation is uncomplicated and even a Stone-ager like me can easily page through and navigate the Finweek digital edition. No more queuing at Exclusive Books or a CNA outlet to buy the latest issue. Every issue of Finweek is available on my mobile, so I carry it with me wherever I am – in an airport lounge or sitting in my doctor’s waiting room, and we all know how horrible the manky hand-me-down magazines at the doctor’s can be.
