I mentioned Texterity not too long ago and how it is attempting to go head to head with the Zinio Reader for digital publication reading.  Marc Orchant also mentioned it and has published his thoughts on how Texterity stacks up against Zinio.  He agreed with some jkOnTheRun readers who left comments about the failings of Texterity.  Check out Marc’s thoughts on the browser based reader.

    Here is a copy of the email I sent to Popular Science after my experience with Textarity. This was sent on Ocober 12th. I still have not received a response:

    To Whom it may concern;

    I just finished “attempting” to access your new digital format magazine. I must say I am very disappointed. I have been receiving the Zinio version of the magazine since you first started using their company and have loved it. The new format is cumbersome and buggy. I have to manually download the file (which is HUGE compared to the Zinio file) if I want to read it offline and while trying to read it online the forward and back arrows used to navigate the pages failed literally 5 times. I had to close and re-open the browser to get it to work again. I became so frustrated that I gave up and closed the webpage.

    If this is going to be the future of the digital format I will not be renewing my subscription when it expires. Is there any way possible I can continue to receive the Zinio format (since that is what I paid for) until my subscription expires?

    Thank you,

    Howard Joplin
