Zinio on the Inside track

Digital magazine distributor Zinio has announced the launch of Inside, a search function that enables publishers and users to search content within digital magazine products.

“If you or your company are covered in a magazine and you want to share it, who wants to send a link to a site when you can send the actual layout,” says Zinio,“No one else does this.”

The service—which is free to users and to publishers who currently have an account with Zinio—lets users send digital “replicas” of magazine pages over e-mail and post articles to Web sites and blogs and social networking sites like Facebook and Digg. In addition to the search functionality, Zinio Inside can also suggest additional editorial content and offer purchasing options for either a single issue or a 12-month subscription.

Zinio Inside will launch with more than 1,000 magazine titles in the company’s digital library, Zinio says.

NxtBook looks to reKindle sales

Nxtbook Media, a digital magazine vendor, recently announced that its customers will have the option to publish their content on Amazon’s Kindle. Nxtbook says it is the first digital magazine producer to offer Kindle support.

The Kindle has been both praised and criticized for its text-heavy, black-and-white display. Unlike the often flashy, oversized color presentation normally associated with digital magazines, Nxtbook intends to offer the magazines in text form.

Digital magazines can be accessed from the Kindle through the device's integrated browser. (The feature is listed on the Kindle's "Experimental" menu, something that Nxtbook hopes Amazon will eventually change.)

Nxtbook also says that Kindle support will be offered at no additional cost to customers of Nxtbook Media's Liberty program. A number of magazine publishers have already packaged their content for the Kindle. Last month, Newsweek released a collection of election coverage as an e-book series for the Kindle.
