CG: Subscribed to 3D World magazine

Not sure why I ever stopped subscribing to 3D World Magazine but it’s high time the postman starting bringing them to me again.

3D World magazine November cover

I considered a digital subscription but

  • you dont get the free assets with a digital subscription
  • the paper copy is easier to read, even compared to the Zinio iPad experience

I’m not at all impressed with the Zinio reader. It’s a surprisingly underwhelming user experience when you consider what Empire has done with their magazine or The Times has done for their newspaper. Magazine reader apps should have evolved enough now that the digial version isn’t just a direct replica of the print copy.

The Zinio AIR reader app is worse than the iPad app because you can’t even pan freely around the page with the mouse.
