Zinio app becoming RBdigital

RBdigital - emagazines

Migration Timeline

This summer, the Zinio magazine app and OneClick audiobook app will combine into one easy-to-use app, RBdigital. 

  • June 26 – Migration starts; Patrons may experience downtime

  • June 27 – RBdigital app launches

  • July 10 – Additional invitations to switch to RBdigital

  • September 8 – Zinio app will be locked. Patrons will need to use RBdigital to access their magazine collection.

 

Overview

Recorded Books will migrate the app and website starting at approximately 7 p.m. on June 26. Patrons should see the new app and website on the morning of June 27. Unfortunately, Recorded Books expects patrons to experience downtime during the 14-hour migration period. Patrons will see an outage message during the migration if they access content on the web directly or via the OneClickdigital app.

Once the RBdigital app is available, patrons will receive a notification within the current Zinio for Libraries app alerting them to the availability of the new app and giving them the option to download it.  When patrons install the RBdigital app, they can log in with the same credentials used for the Zinio for Libraries app. Your username and password will remain the same. The new RBdigital app will have all previous checkouts available, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded again, as needed.

Starting around July 10, the notifications that patrons see within the Zinio for Libraries app will also show a counter counting down the timeframe for when the Zinio app will no longer function (currently planned for Sept. 8).

After September 8, patrons will need to install the RBdigital app in order to access their magazine collection.

The Zinio for Libraries app will remain on the device until patrons delete it. When the Zinio for Libraries app is deleted, all downloaded magazines will be removed from their device, freeing up memory. The new RBdigital app will have all previous checkouts available, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded again, as needed.

We will update migration information as we receive it.
