News aggregators are fun to have, but what if you want different types of commercial magazines in digital format? You can either get a subscription, or visit official websites for the magazines, but the first is costly, while the second is a time-consuming solution. There are numerous apps on Google Play that try to cater to these needs, but one of the more recent discoveries of mine is Isuu: A world of magazine, a simple and easy to use magazine reader. The principle behind Isuu is to offer full magazines on various subjects that you can easily enjoy on a mobile device.
Most of the magazines you might find in Isuu are digital versions of existing print-magazines, which could come in handy if you’re not in the mood to go out to the shop and get the publication for yourself. Isuu is perfect, in my opinion, for when you feel like reading superficial stuff with lots of pictures, or find magazines from all around the world on different topics. You’ve got quite a few categories to choose from that cater to different types of interests.
Since I’m a woman, I like Isuu because it offers digital versions of popular fashion magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Marie Claire and many more. Some of the publications you find within the magazine reader are just samples, but there’s a pretty large selection of full magazines on there, too. You can search for releases based on categories of interests such as fashion, make-up, technology, science, interior design, food, art, design, fitness, business, house & home, movies, men’s fashion, photography, music, various sports and products, and urban scene.
The app comes with a few nifty features and a ton of sharing options. You can stack magazines in categories so that you can access exactly what you need, when you need it. Isuu also offers a feed when you open the app up, so that you can browse through recommendations based on your previous reads. You can also interact with other users’ stacks and feeds within the app, if you want to know what other people consider worthy reading materials. You also have the option to publish your own magazines and follow publishers and others’ stacks to keep in touch with new content.
One of the best features in this magazine reader is Clip It, which lets you crop a part of a magazine and save it in your activity log. You can share that clip, comment on it and interact with other users. You can clip a nice outfit which you want to reproduce, a piece of literature that you just can’t forget or a new wearable device you absolutely have to look up on Amazon. Overall, the app is very easy to use, very simple and with a minimalist design that won’t get in your way. It’s a neat magazine reader to have and I consider it among the few must-have apps for those who like to browse interesting articles in magazines. The magazine reader also works fast and doesn’t seem buggy or cheap, and I only had it crash one time, so definitely a worthy download. You can get it for free from the Google Play Store and it only weighs a little over 5.3 MB.
