Zinio allowing iPhone users free access to Playboy, PC Mag, and other popular magazines

Zinio partners up with a number of popular real world magazines to offer online, paperless versions for a few bucks a pop. They’ve got a fairly hefty selection, offering everything from Organic Gardening magazine to the slightly less work friendly Penthouse.

They just started rolling out an iPhone optimized version of their service, currently covering 20 different magazines. The best part? Where as the PC version will set you back a few bucks per issue, iPhone users can browse through the mags for free — for the time being, at least. No word yet whether this will stay free – so be sure to check it out while the gettins good.

The available magazines:

  • U.S News and World Report
  • Playboy
  • Saveur
  • Popular Photography
  • Men’s Health
  • Kiplinger’s
  • Popular Mechanics
  • Penthouse
  • Viv

While there probably isn’t any question which two magazines will be the most popular, I’m pretty sure they wont be Kiplinger’s and Viv.
