Flipster provides free digital access to popular current magazines through a subscription paid for by your library.
Flipster provides this access on desktop computers as well as on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire mobile devices.
Flipster focuses on providing access to current issues, though it also provides access to back issues for many magazines.
There is no limit on how many magazines can be read or downloaded. There are likewise no "holds" and there is no waiting to get a copy.
When you download a title to a mobile device, an expiration period may apply. A 2 day expiration may apply for some weekly publications and a 7 day expiration may apply for some monthly or seasonal titles.
You can always re-download an expired title, though, if you wish to continue reading. All other downloaded titles will remain on your device until you choose to delete them.
