Reading your magazines on the Zinio app for Android tablets just got a whole lot easier thanks to a partnership with NVIDIA to optimize the app for its Tegra 2 processor. If you’re sporting an Android Honeycomb tablet with the proper hardware, you should see a world of difference.
The Zinio app is available on several different platforms and brings you over 4300 different magazines to choose from, and while it’s awesome that you can access that many sources, the experience on Honeycomb tablets hasn’t been the smoothest experience before now. Thanks to a partnership with NVIDIA, the two companies have worked closely together to get the app to a more optimal experience on the Tegra II processor, the chip behind the majority of today’s Android tablets.
“Zinio has an extensive collection of rich and interactive magazines,” said Neil Trevett, Vice President of Mobile Content at NVIDIA. “By optimizing performance for Tegra-based tablets, Zinio and NVIDIA are delivering an amazing reading experience.”
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the Zinio user experience, and integrating NVIDIA’s incredible graphics processing capabilities was a no-brainer,” said Rich Maggiotto, Zinio President and CEO. “Close cooperation between the two companies harnessed the power of Tegra to provide incredibly smooth page turning, zooming and panning capabilities for our Android users.”
The tablets that can take advantage of this optimization include:
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
- ASUS Eee Pad Transformer
- Motorola Xoom
- T-Mobile G-Slate by LG
- LG Optimus Pad
- Acer Iconia Tab A500
You can download the updated version of the app if you have one of these devices from the Android Market now.
