The Zinio for Libraries app is being replaced by the new RBdigital app.
For current Zinio users, and any other Moline Library patrons that are interested in eMagazines, there is a new app in town. The new RBdigital app is available to the public starting Tuesday, June 27.
Switching is easy. All you need to do is download the free RBdigital app from your app store of choice and then log in to the new app using the same log in information (email and password) that you used in the Zinio app. And that’s it!
For first time users, once you download the app, all you will need is your Moline Library card number, your email address and to create a password in order to create an account.
Once you’ve done this all of the magazines that you have checked out in Zinio (if you have any) will automatically show up in the new RBdigital app. You will have to re-download titles but other than that there isn’t anything else that you need to do. Plus, you can search for and check out new issues or magazines right in the app (as opposed to being rerouted to a browser window like in the old app).
For those of you reeling for the sudden change, don’t worry, you have plenty of time to adjust to the idea before you make the switch. The Zinio for Libraries app will still be up and running for a couple of months before it is phased out in favor of the new app. So, if you don’t like change (or just want to wait for the unfortunately inevitable bugs in the new app to be worked out) you can safely wait a little while.
As always, if you have any questions or problems with the app feel free to stop by the second floor reference desk and we will be happy to help.
