Who buys magazines these days? If you have an iPad or any Android tablet, you can now download the latest digital magazines for free. Let me show you how.
First of all, let me be clear that this service is only available for free for Malaysian citizens. This is part of the government’s initiative to increase the use of digital technologies in Malaysia. The project is special collaboration between Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia (National Library of Malaysia) and CELEX.
In order for you to download the free magazines offered by the library, you will need to have Zinio app installed on your device. Aside from that, you have to sign up on Celex and Zinio. Sounds complicated? Not at all, let’s do that right now.
1. Search and download for Zinio on the App Store if you have an iPad or Google Play for Android device.
2. Then go to CELEX’s website here and register for your free account.
3. Once you’ve completed the Sign Up process, click on View Collections and a new tab will open. You can now start browsing for your favourite digital magazines. There are plenty to choose from and they are all the latest issues. You’ll be amazed!
4. Choose the magazine you wish to download and select Complete Checkout. At this point it will ask you to register for a Zinio account. Complete the sign up process and your free digital magazine will be added to your reading list automatically.
That’s it folks. It’s super simple and you’re now able to read your latest favourite magazines on your tablet!
