Review and Giveaway of Readly: An online magazine subscription

I love reading magazines when I have the time. It could be a home interior magazine, a pregnancy magazine or a gossip magazine. However looking after a toddler does make it hard to find the time to read, let alone get a physical printed magazine in my hands. So we were excited when Readly invited us to review their online magazine subscription service and to run a competition on my blog.

If you haven’t heard of Readly, it’s an online magazine subscription service where you pay monthly, download the App to your Android or iPhone, and this instantly gives you access to 2,600 magazine titles at your fingertips. There are 69,200 issues available in the app for you to view online or to download allowing you to view offline.

In fact there are so many titles that there is bound to be something for you. You could be a travel lover, a property mogul, a teek geek, a food lover, a pregnant mum, a motor head or a gossip hunter. Whatever magazines you love reading, Readly will have something to suit you or your favourite titles including GQ, Hello, Marie Claire, Cosmospolitan, Good Food and Gurgle.

We loved using our Readly subscription, and I really enjoyed browsing through all the Mother and Baby magazines before bed on my phone or iPad. It definitely made a change from procrastinating on Facebook and Twitter. I also couldn’t believe how easy it is to use. It is so easy to set up, and it is very quick to search for titles and have your favourite magazine on your phone in a matter of seconds. All magazines are optimised for smartphones, so there is no need to aimlessly scroll around the page to find the relevant content.

Often I would take magazines on holiday or purchase them at the airport. The Readly App is ideal for this purpose taking away the need for carrying magazines around with you. 1 in 5 people would use Readly on the beach, and I can imagine myself being one of those people. It also would mean that I could easily browse to articles I wanted to read, rather than having to purchase a magazine and not read half of it. Plus think of the environment and trees that you are saving by using an App instead.

Another plus point of Readly is that it makes the commute or travelling to work a lot more enjoyable. There is no need to carry magazines around with you, and you will always have a magazine at your fingertips to read. Sometimes I wish I was still a commuter heading into Central London, just so I could get some time to browse through the huge range of magazines on my phone.

What’s also great about Readly is that it allows you to use the app across 5 different devices, with 5 different user profiles. This makes it perfect for family use, allowing everyone to view magazines of their choice on their own device.

Readly costs just £7.99 per month which is about the price of 2 magazines, however you have instead access to 2,600 title at your fingertips. So you are definitely getting your money’s worth. To access the content all you need to do is sign-up online, and the download the App. If you’re planning a trip abroad and worried about your data usage, fear not. All Readly titles are available to download, allowing you to download these before you jet off on holiday.
