How to access the PCWorld Digital Magazine Replica Edition on your Android phone:
Please activate your account using the form above.
At Zinio, fill out the form to register for your Zinio account. Be sure to use the same email address that you used to activate your PCWorld Digital Magazine account, and remember both the email address and the password you use; you'll need them in Step 5. Once you've filled out the form, click or tap 'Register'.
Once you've successfully registered, you'll need to download the app. On your Android phone, navigate to the 'Play Store', typically found on the home screen. If it isn't there, press the 'Apps' button (in the middle of the home screen), and then tap 'Play Store' among the apps or the 'Play Store' icon in the upper-right corner. Tap the 'Search' icon to search for Zinio. Next, tap Zinio. When the search results populate, tap the Zinio search result labeled 'Zinio: 5000+ Digital Magazines'. Once that page opens, tap 'Install' to install the app on your Android phone. Accept or modify the 'App Permissions', and installation will begin.
Once installation is complete, or if you already have Zinio installed, tap 'Open' to start the Zinio app.
Inside the app, tap the 'More' button and then tap 'Settings'. Tap on 'Sign In' (found under 'ACCOUNT') and enter the email address and the password that you used while registering for Zinio (in Step 2). For some Android devices, you may have to use the physical 'Menu' button located on your handset, to navigate to 'Settings.'
After successfully signing in, you will be redirected to the Zinio app's home screen. Or click the 'Back' button to return to the home screen.
Tap the 'Read' icon, and you will go to your Library. Click the arrow next to an issue to download it. A status bar will let you know how fast the issue is downloading.
Once this process is complete, you can start reading!
