    Downloaded my first new title since my update to 4.2 yesterday. Super Streetbike Magazine. I've sent a support request email to Zinio but never received a reply or notice that it was received. Here's the problem description I sent them:

    upon further testing, it's only hanging up on a few pages (around page 15 or 16). It never fully loads the image, it stays in a slightly blurry state. There's no extra features in the magazine, it's only rendering images.

    I was able to flip through a "Mental Floss" magazine I bought a month or two ago. It resolves the text when I zoom in but it's dog slow and hitchy at doing so. So far I've avoided buying many Zinio mags because I think their app needs a bit more work. Essentially these are pdf files, I don't know why their app is so much slower than PDF magazines I open in GoodReader.

    I wish I could even get to that point. I haven't been able to get through a backup to install the upgrade. I bypassed the initial backup and have everything crucial in Dropbox. Got the dl finally but now can't get past the backup before installation.

    In respect to Zinio, I read on another forum that it couod be one culprit so deleted it but still a several hour backup agwin so I cancelled it and will try tonight. I have 2 subscriptions so would like to reinstall afterr update but not surr---if I ever get to that point LOO. I may be stuck with 3.2 forever on this one. I have my husband's to upgrade too. Hopefully it will go better.

    I know good reader can read them, but I cant purchase them on there and the UI on zinio is better looking.

    @diane It seems my back ups have taken less time after the update. It also appears that all my other titles work just fine. As much as i don't want to, i may remove zinio today and then redownload everything. Thankfully, i only 2 or 3 pages of issues to get back.

    Just diwnloaded the new macworld issue and everything works fine with that one. I can only assume it's an issue on the publishers side.

    I also noticed the backup with zinio backups included is faster on 4.2.1

    It used to take well over 90 minutes to backup. Now it's more like 20-30 minutes.

    Cheers,

    I have Zinio 1.9.2 and the first two times I loaded it after 4.2.1, the program closed while downloading a magazine. After that it has worked with no issues. Not sure if it was just a fluke.

    Anyone else having problems under 1.9.3? Since updating the app doesn't remember where I am in each magazine. It doesnt matter if the app gets closed through IOS clawing back memory through multitasking or I close it myself, when I reopen it it goes to the Featured section. When I navigate back to the magazine I was reading it opens it either at the front cover or some random page. It used to just start the app wherever I left off. It's very annoying and spiking what s my favourite app now :(
