Zinio updates its universal iOS app to add support for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini

This afternoon Apple released into the App Store the latest app update for Zinio. Zinio, of course, is the San Francisco-based digital newsstand company used by many major magazine publishers to distribute their digital magazines.

The update to the Zinio universal iOS app brings iPhone 5 and iPad mini optimization, as well as stability and performance improvements, according to the app description. The update also brings in bookmarks for the iPhone app.

The update brings the app up to version 2.5.

looking through the most recent user reviews, it appears as though the update is well received, as is the app overall. Unfortunately, Santa did not bring me an iPad mini this year (to be honest, I forgot to write him about that gift) so I can not tell what exactly is meant by iPad mini optimization, though with other media apps it usually has referred to the way the store and libraries are designed, accounting for the smaller tablet screen than the standard iPad.
