FAQ: Using digital editions.


If you have a desktop or laptop computer, pad, tablet or reader you can purchase issues of our magazines in PDF-eZine format and view them with any PDF-compatible viewer. These issues have the same layout and content as our print editions with many color illustrations and can be downloaded to a device of your choice.

Our PDF-eZines can be purchased one at a time for instant download or you can subscribe and get the instant download of the current issue and receive a personal access code that enables you to download future issues of your subscription as they are published. The file size of each issue ranges from 6MB to 16MB, and downloads can take from less than a minute with a fast connection. Not recommended for use with dial-up.

We recommend testing our digital issues on your device by using the link "Table of contents in PDF format" at the bottom of each issue page. This sample pdf contains only the cover and the table-of-contents pages but uses our standard digital issue format. Our digital issues are designed to be downloaded and stored on your device or private personal cloud.

Devices known to work with our PDF-eZine format include:
Personal Computers including Laptops, Netbooks, and Ultrabooks
- Any Windows, Mac or Linux personal computer running the standard GUI and with the free Adobe Reader or other PDF viewer installed.

Android Pads or the Kindle Fire
- The free Adobe reader app from the "Play Store" works fine as do many other free readers. Our favorite reader apps are the free "Foxit Mobile PDF" and "ezPDF Reader Pro" which adds some nice features, like thumbnails.

iPad or iPhone
- Apple iPads (iPhones are kinda small) work well with our digital issue format provided you have a PDF viewer installed. The iPad's free iBooks reader works fine as does the free Adobe reader or many other pdf readers availble at iTunes.

Our readers have let us know the that the Literati reader works too.

If you have a reader that is not listed and works with our digital editions, let us know and we'll post it here.
