Zinio Magazine Newsstand & Reader
Read magazines on your iPhone or iPad with Zinio Magazine Newsstand & Reader

Just as ebooks has started to make in-roads into the traditional book market, the same is starting to happen in the magazine market. A large number of magazines covering al manner of subjects are now available in electronic format, and Zinio is a free application that can be used to buy and view such e-mags.

The Zinio Magazine Newsstand & Reader app can be used to browse through a selection of electronic magazies and use your Apple device to purchase individual issues or buy a subscription. Your Zinio library can be synchronised with your computer so your magazines will be available on all of your devices.

Magazines can be viewed in portrait or landscape mode, and hyperlinks can be used to navigate between pages as well as online content. Zinio provides a completely new way of experiencing the magazines you love while providing access to a worldwide selection which is simply not available in newsagents.

Electronic magazines have far greater scope than their traditional paper-based counterparts. Publishers are able to include interactive content as well as multimedia elements such as music and video. This allows for a much richer experience which is further enhanced by the fact that it is possible to store a huge number of magazines on your iPad or iPhone.
 

Verdict:

While it is still early days for electronic magazines, Zinio is a great showcase for just what's possible.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
