Zinio App Installation Instructions

Note:  These instructions are ONLY for users on the Amazon Kindle Fire.  This installer is not supported for other mobile devices.  You must follow these instructions *on your Kindle Fire*.  After you have installed the app, please see the User Guide at the bottom of this page for details on checking out and reading Zinio magazines on your Kindle.

  1. From the main screen of your Kindle, put your finger on the top right corner of the screen and 'swipe' your finger down to bring up the Settings menu.  Press: More > Device > Allow installation of Applications (from unknown devices)> select "ON".
  2. Download the APK (app installer) from here (just tap this link on your Kindle Fire)
  3. To monitor your download put your finger on the top left of the screen and 'swipe' down or pull down, as if you were pulling a curtain down.  this will show the download progress.  Once the download is complete, tap the file that we downloaded, select "Install" and press "Open" when the installation is complete.
  4. You're all set!  Just click on the magazine icon in the upper right hand corner of the App and you will be given the option to sign in using your existing Zinio email and password which should match the library account you created to check out magazines.  If you have checked out any titles on the RBDigital Gateway's Zinio page, they will automatically show up in your app.

Note:  The Zinio app will allow you to purchase additional magazines.  Purchasing magazines from the app will NOT be tied to your library account and are NOT of the free magazine collection available through the RBDigital Gateway with your library card.  Anytime you would like to add a new issue or magazine, you must revisit and click on the Zinio Icons.
