Things I would like to see:
- A "reader" or "article view" on web pages.
- Better organization of favorites in Metro browser
- Speakers could be better, although they are bad on tablet I have used
- Flash support on all web pages
- More video formats supported
Zinio app is available for Surface in the USA but the app has problems. I and other Surface users have problems opening magazine subscriptions. Promotional magazines will open but purchased magazines crash the app. I have reported this to Zinio.
I went to the Zinio website via my desktop computer and was able to reset my password. I went back to the Surface and was able to open the app and login successfully. Yeah!
I bought a magazine, tried to open it and got the message "An unexpected error has occurred. Please make sure you...
First I had trouble with Zinio crashing before it fully loaded. I uninstalled and reinstalled and then it stayed open.
I tried to log into my Zinio account and it said I had the wrong password, which seemed highly unlikely because I have it written down. So I used the "forgot your password"...
It is disappointing that Surface doesn't appear to have a magazine app that works. Reading books and magazines is a primary function for a "media consumption" device like Surface. A friend wants to buy my iPad but I can't give it to him until the Nook app comes out and only if it actually works...
Are there any apps currently available that let your read magazines? Amazon's Kindle won't display magazines. I can't get the Zinio app to work. There is no Barnes and Noble Nook for Windows RT. Any other options?
Having had enough time to play with my Surface I thought I would share some impressions. Some things have been pleasant surprises. The size is great, the weight acceptable and the screen resolution no problem at all—the reviews criticizing it were without merit. The touch cover far exceeded...
I too would like a docking/charging station but with speakers.
A couple of other features that I miss from my iPad and would like to see on the Surface include the "reader" function on web pages and one-touch return to the top of the web page. I used both those features all the time.
