Flipster - a digital magazine portal

MDC Learning Resources is happy to announce the subscription of digital magazines Flipster.

Flipster is a next-generation digital magazine solution. It offers an easy reading experience of popular magazines in an online environment. Users can browse magazines by category as well as perform searches for specific ones. The table of contents contains links for quick access to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked, opening in separate tabs when clicked. In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.

Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones and tablets, and Kindle Fire tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.

After downloading the app on the phone, by clicking on the settings you can opt for a magazine to “download over Wi-Fi only" – it reduces the data usage given by the mobile network provider.
