Review of Readly Magazine Reading Application
I love relaxing with a good magazine. However, I stopped subscribing to magazines because they really stack up. It seems like a nice idea to make a magazine library, but over time, it is just a little too much clutter for me. So I kicked the magazine habit.
Readly is a game changer. My Readly subscription and app allows me to read hundreds of popular magazines on my phone, tablet and Kindle. Readly boasts about a thousand different magazines in their library. I can read as much as I want without clutter.
It turns out that my iPad is perfect for online magazine viewing. It is about the same size as a standard magazine, and I can enjoy either page by page or two pages at a time view. The Readly app looks beautiful on an iPad. It also works well on my iPhone and Kindle Fire.
Readly is perfect for the family. With a Readly subscription, you access the content on up to five different devices. You may also set up multiple reader profiles for members of your family and access parental controls. In this way, it is very much like Netflix for magazines! Subscribers may download magazines to devices for offline reading.
Readly’s magazine library covers a range of topics. They have an eclectic assortment of fashion, lifestyle, cooking, home, celebrity, consumer, business, hobby, faith and news magazines. Sadly, they didn’t have all my favorites, but I found a few that I enjoy.
On the plus, I was happy to see Consumer Reports, Clean Eating, Yoga, Nylon, Women’s Health, Adweek, Running, Oxygen, Organic Life and others. They have selections for men and women and most ages.
Readly offers an assortment of magazines from the United States, Canada, France, Germany, India, Lithuania, Philippines, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
I was disappointed in the US fashion and beauty magazine selection. However, I found a few nice one’s in the French and UK magazine libraries. While I don’t speak French, I still enjoy style inspiration and eye candy from French Elle. I only wish there were some Spanish language magazines.
Overall, Ready is a good value for the keen magazine reader. If you (or members of your household) are likely to read ten or more magazines regularly, the $9.99 monthly fee is good value.
