Zinio app update adds automatic issue downloads

The digital newsstand provider Zinio this morning updated its iOS apps, fixing some bugs and adding automatic updates.

The app update allows users to now automatically download the new magazines as they are released. The downloads occur over WiFi and most be activated in the devices Settings.

The automatic updates now allow Zinio's app to function in a similar fashion to Apple's Newsstand.

Zinio also notes in its app description that this update will be the last one that will support devices running iOS 3 and below. This shouldn't be an issue as iOS device owners are more likely to update their device's operating system than owners of other mobile devices.
