Favorite Magazine Reading Device?

This has probably been asked many times, and I may have missed it, but for reading Magazines.. what is the best Application? Zinio, Kindle, Nook etc.. and on what reader? ipad, Nook, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire and so on?.. in short, if you only had one choice to read a magazine other than the drugstore or any brick and motar shelf ..(not paper) ...which would it be? I'm struggling with this..
Thanks..
Doug

I like Zinio on my iPad. I have several subscriptions, including National Geographic and Dwell. I also read People, which has its own app.

The magazines from other retailers I was referring to are like regular ebooks (ie, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazines from fictionwise) not subscription items in a proprietary app. I have no idea how or if it's even possible to transfer Nook subscription mags that way. If it is, hopefully someone else can clear that up. Can nook mags be read on multiple devices? If so, I'd just install the nook app and use that rather than mantano in your case.

Highest resolution and best aspect ratio for magazines.
While 19:9/16:10 is best for video, 4:3 is best for magazines.

[EDIT: please ignore this post, it is based on erroneous information (the last sentence/note in the 1st para. is wrong, see CWatkinsNash's correction posts below)]

If you get your magazines free from Calibre's "Fetch news" service, I would suggest a Kindle Fire tablet. Why? Because you can set up Calibre to send the fetched magazines automatically via e-mail to a real Kindle device using your free.kindle.com address. In other words, the magazine just appears on your Kindle device when you get within wi-fi range. Note that you cannot get this automagic delivery to the Kindle app on a non-Amazon Kindle device.

While the above works also with an e-Ink Kindle, you can't page and peruse as quickly, thus the Fire recommendation.

But if your question is about the best print-replacement magazines, then you'll be paying for that experience. Calibre is more about the text of articles, than about reproducing the print pages (including ads) like Zinio does.

Not true. My Kindle for Android on my tablet was given a kindle email address. My phone was not, and PC installs were not. Apparently it depends on the device type but it is not required to be a kindle device. And it works. I just tested it.

Thanks. But just to be sure we're talking the same thing: Calibre delivers free to your Android_tablet's_name@free.kindle.com, and that works?. I.e., you set up Calibre's Preferences (Sharing books by email) to deliver to that @free.kindle.com address and tested that or something similar?

In that case, I bought a Fire for no good reason. (Unless the restriction I mentioned was previously true and has since been relaxed.)

All your Kindle devices/apps should have an assigned kindle.com e-mail address, which can be found at Amazon: Your Account --> Manage Your Kindle --> Personal Document Settings --> Send-to-Kindle E-mail Settings.

It's only a kindle.com address - there is no distinction for non-kindle devices as the free designation only serves to tell it to only deliver to a kindle device via wifi. It only matters with actual kindle with 3g because of Amazon's document delivery charges over their 3g.

No, not all of my apps have assigned email addresses. Only my tablet was given one. Prior to posting earlier, I set up Calibre to send to that address, tested my Gmail outgoing, then did a news download. Calibre downloaded the news item and sent it. On my tablet, kindle app automatically downloaded the news item and it was ready to read. I also got an email letting me know of the delivery. It worked exactly the same as when I had an actual kindle keyboard.

As I mentioned previously, my phone was never given an email for kindle, but it was installed ages ago and later removed because I can't read on my phone. Too small. You may be right that it's been recently relaxed, as I've had my tablet less than a month so the app install was quite recent.
