I use both Zinio and the Kindle app for my periodicals. The N7 is the perfect size, IMHO, and the 1280x800 resolution is stunning. I rarely use my 10" Xoom for reading periodicals now. (I may change my mind when the 8.9" Fire arrives)

I read magazines and newspapers mostly on my iPad (3, 64gb, 3g).
But I get my newspapers also on a Kindle PW. Love the portability and reading in the sun.
I inherently dislike Zinio (too much spam email, slow and choppy downloading, delays in delivery), but I use it for National Geographic.
I use their own apps for The Economist, FT, and WSJ.
I get Foreign Affairs on the Kindle and Kindle app for iPad.

It depends on availability. On my Galaxy Tab: If the magazine/newspaper is available as PDF, then I use either Adobe Reader (they've improved the Android app quite a lot in recent months) or RepliGo Reader (which does a wonderjob reflowing text without losing all the formatting).

Otherwise you are often stuck with the app that is offered by your magazine. For example I would love to read the Economist on my device, but I found the official Android app to be terrible, with slow scrolling and random crashes.

The Economist is also available on Zinio.

I should try Zinio then.

Update: Installed it. It's the same price like the official digital edition, plus it offers the purchase of individual issues (nice!). I will give it a try.

On my Nexus 7 I have been using the Play Magazines. Next Issue isn't available on any of my devices, and I have read some pretty bad reviews about Zinio & charges after canceling subscriptions - though their recent reviews look somewhat better.

While I love the N7, I do miss reading magazines on my NookColor, particularly the few that could be bookmarked.

Love not having piles of paper magazines around anymore, but can't wait for e-magazines to come with a searchable index, bookmarking, and links to the website or ability to bookmark to Springpad/Evernote/Pinterest.

Don't have a favorite reading device, but my favorite magazine app is the NY Times for Android. I have a digital subscription and it's the first app that I launch in the morning (either on my Samsung GS2 or on my wife's Nexus tablet).

Another option, if you want to read it on multiple devices, is to go the Kindle way. You can then install the Kindle app on your iPad and get it that way. But I think that only makes sense if you want to read it on multiple devices.

EDIT: brain is off. I see now you were talking about Android. Sorry.

It's fine, I am open to other options. The way I read newspaper and magazines is to flip through the articles, and only stop when I find something of interest. I have a Kindle PW, which I use exclusively for reading novels. I thought its CPU and display were too slow to process newspaper content, although I haven't tried it.

You can get a free two-week trial for most of the big newspapers and magazines. I was skeptical too, but I actually find it a pleasant read. Actually, due to the fact that the file is pre-loaded, it is a much smoother and faster 'flipping through pages' than if you use the WSJ or FT apps on tablets - which are usually downloading in the background while you try to read and constantly hiccup.
