Zinio for Libraries Mobile App Migration to RBdigital
Over 50% of Zinio for Libraries app users have already migrated to the RBdigital app, which provides access to magazines and other types of content to which Kingston subscribes.
To provide enough time for the other 50% of library members to migrate, library members will be able to access all of the functions of the Zinio for Libraries app until 23rd of October 2017. At that time, the Zinio for Libraries app will be locked for each library member. The app will still be available but will display the following message:
Message Text: “Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital. To access your magazine collection, please download the new RBdigital app now by clicking here*. Note: Your username and password will remain the same.”
