    Zinio App please

      I have seen many people on here talking about work around for using Zinio app. This is really needed for the Nook HD+ like yesterday needed. There are a number of people that I have seen on the forums and via the internet that are really unhappy this is not already an app in the Nook store. My question is why is it not in the Nook store and how long should we have to wait for it to get on the Nook store?

          Zinio won't be added since Nooks Newstand sells many. Don't see this app coming to nook anytime soon.

              Exactly what Gabourele said.

               

              Zinio is in direct competition with Nook's own Newstand Magazines store. So it's most probably not going to let Zinio in.

                  I sorta understand that but right now BN digital magazine base is horrible. So all I am suggesting is either expand the digital magazine base to at least what Zinio carries or put in the app so we can for the moment use it.

                   

                  Still waiting to hear something on BN side to a short/long term solution.

                With the cost of magazine subscriptions and our libraries providing them for free, it just makes sense to ditch the Nook and go for a Kindle Fire or iPad and let B&N provide Zinio too late for us who are frustrated.  I have been trying to get along with Nook and think it was okay but the more I use it, the more I see better utility in other products.  B&N should allow Zinio apps or realize their customers are just going to move on.  Bummer, there are some good things about the Nook, but the confinement is just getting to be too much.

                    Zinio is not available currently for the same reason Comixology isn't (I've spoken with reps from both companies) - there is currently no In App Purchasing on the NOOK platform.

                     

                    Given that this is changing in a month, it's quite possible that the apps will show up then (and BN has hinted that there's going to be some pretty big name apps showing up when IAP goes live).

                     

                    BN has been relaxing the "no competition" rule recently (apps like Vudu compete directly with BN as well).

Can you elaborate on this? Maybe a link or some more information about this coming change?
