Digital Magazine App Upgrade

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

flipster appFlipster, the library’s digital magazine provider, has upgraded its iOS app* and released an app for Kindle Fire. Residents with iPhones and Kindle Fire tablets can now join iPad and Android tablet users in downloading unlimited issues of 23 magazines to their devices.

To use the Flipster app, just connect to Flipster from our library website using your mobile device’s web browser. Enter your Lincolnwood library card number for access. Tap on the menu button of the magazine you want to read, and select “open in app.”

Once your magazines are in the app, you can access them even when you don’t have an internet connection. Flipster makes it easy to carry a stack of magazines in your pocket to the gym, on your commute, on vacation…wherever life leads you.

For a full list of magazines currently available through Flipster, visit our Flipster Help page. (We’re adding new titles for 2016—look for an announcement during the first week of January!)

*The app is now compatible with all Apple devices running iOS 8.0 or later; iPads with older operating systems can still run the previous version of the app.
