    I see a Zinio shortcut after updating to 2.0 update and it's just a browser shortcut, there better be an actual app coming very soon!

    i dont have that shortcut.
    i was hoping it would be built-in, or at least released in appworld, its still early in the morning and i still have hope of seeing a few new apps appear as the day goes by

    i contacted the zinio CMO this was the response i got.

    This is absurd. I am really annoyed by this. Is it really that hard to write an adobe air app? They better be doing something off the hook with the playbook app, cause there is no reason it should take this long to develop an app. Waiting.....

    Also eagerly awaiting that one. I think RIM is starting a marketing push now that OS2 is out; my hope is that this push will include major new app announcements (Kindle was specifically referred to on BestBuy Canada's website, for instance).

    Hopefully such announcements won't be held up for too long...

    I was bored last night so I tried using print to go with a zinio magazine i had loaded on my PC. It worked. I now have a pdf version of PC Magazine on my PlayBook. Doesn't work for all magazines since you are not given the option to print all magazines.

    It took a little while since the file size is pretty large. I was using the Zinio reader application for PC.

    Not sure if anyone cars, but figured I would let you guys know.

    Was there any word whether it will be an android or native app?

    This must be coming soon as there are loads of magazines on the UK Zinio site which now show "RIM" as a supported platform.

    Its a native app I believe.

    Hmm, tried to give this a shot but on go. Nothing shows up on my Print2Go when I actually print from it. Anyone else get it to work?

    Also I can only select the option to "print current page", the option to print all pages is greyed out for all of my mags. Does this mean it's disabled for these mags?

    Anyway hopefully a fully working PB app comes soon... and here I was getting excited that I could finally have a decent use for this Print2Go app

    It's coming. Zinio tweeted as much. We saw sneak peak at CES. This isn't netflix or skype (where we have no idea if they are coming). I think it'll arrive in time for MWC or shortly thereafter.

    Glad to see another big name app coming to the Playbook, although the few magazines I would actually be interested in reading are not available through Zinio.

    Must be getting closer to release, almost every magazine I click on on the UK Zinio store now show's the "RIM" icon under which platforms the magazine is available for.
