    Default Digital magazines

    Is my subs.co.za still in operation?

    Is there another platform for digital SA magazines that can be recommended?

    MySubs is sort off dead, received mails months back that they are closing.

    I am now using Magzter, cheaper, much more choices from around the world as well. Their app is a bit crappy though

    Look at the Gold subscription, over 5000 magazines and you can share with 5 people

    My digital subscription for SA 4X4 and Caravan & Outdoor are with MAGZETER while Getaway and Leisure Wheels are with MAGS AT HOME.
    It has worked out this way because of the offers I got when first subscribing to the particular magazines. Both platforms work well.

    Also using Magzter now. MySubs closed down.

    Also have used Zinio, but for the mags I read, Magzter’s Gold subscription cannot be beat. Example, I like Volks World mag and only its subscription fee on Zinio covers about Magzter’s gold subscription and I get a whole lot more other mags.

    Yes, I have mine shared with some friends without a problem. Although I have not spoken to them lately to hear if it is still working.

    I subscribe to Magzter Gold but cannot share with others. I think there is an additional subscription if you want to share. Also although you can download the magazines to your device they are only available to you whilst you have a Magzter subscription. If you subscribe to a specific magazine then it is always available as you have bought it.

    This is the current offer on Magzter Gold. Both the monthly and annual subscription comes with the sharing option.

    But I have to agree the MySubs I used previously was great in being able to download PDF's of the magazines. The Gold subscription offers more content that I will ever use. I actively follow at least 5 magazines and when I subscribed last year about this time, it was on special for R499 for a year. I have to renew now and must compare the costs between 5 single subscriptions vs the Gold one. On the single ones I will most likely loose my friends on the same subscription.... Unless we share the cost of the Gold subscription.

    The other nice thing about the Gold subscription is that I could read copies from before I started my subscription. Leisure Wheels is not part of the Gold bundle and I took out a single subscription. On this I could not read copies from before my subscription.

    On Magster if you have the family subs - you can share with 5 people but only the gold subscription. If you subscribe to any extra magazines these CAN NOT be shared!!! Rather frustrating

    Is daar nog 'n site of web waar jy PDF format kan aflaai en later lees? Soos MySubs gewerk het.

    Jy kan PDF's aflaai as jy 'n Netwerk 24 intekenaar is, dis dan beperk tot die koerante/tydskrifte wat hulle uitgee, nl Burger, Beeld Rapport Finweek, Huisgenoot, Landbou Weekblad, Jagter/Hunter, Sarie, Tuis, Weg en Wegry & Sleep.
