"If I had to say which is my number one reason for liking and using the iPad, I would give two thumbs up for magazine and web-based article reading. I've written about article and PDF reader apps, and now I want to point out some fairly good magazine apps for the iPad. There's simply no better device on the market that I know of for full-color, quality display of digital magazines and newspapers."
Like the author, I use my iPad to read several magazines through Zinio, a free iPad app. I've replaced several of the ones that normally came via snail mail, so I'm doing my part to stay green yes? That isn't the reason I did it though, I really just like the fact it takes care of a lot of clutter and weight that I used to pack in my bag for work. It usually had several issues of various magazines, all replaced with my iPad. In fact, I've scaled down the size of bag I normally carry for work so my back thanks me too. I have yet to try the magazine specific apps available, but I see a couple that interest me. Do you use your iPad for magazines, and if so, what app(s) do you use?
