Reading Magazines and Newspapers

The Kindle Fire is a wonderful way to read magazines and newspapers. The full-color screen and the touch interface make the experience of reading periodicals much better than on previous Kindles.

Reading a Page View-Enabled Magazine

Many magazines that are available in the Kindle Store are Page View Enabled, which means that they provide two views; Page View and Text View. Page View represents the look of the actual printed magazine. Text View is a view that is better suited to reading because of the focus on text rather than graphics.

Magazines that have Page View are labeled as Magazine - Page View Enabled in the Newsstand store. These magazines open in Page View by default.

  1. From Newsstand, tap a magazine that is Page View enabled to open it.
  2. Tap the center of a page to display page thumbnails.
  3. Tap a page thumbnail to move to that page. The current page is outlined in blue.
  4. Use the slider to quickly move to a specific page.
  5. Tap the Contents icon to see a list of articles.
  6. Tap an article to move directly to the article.
  7. Swipe left to move forward one page or swipe right to move back one page. You can also tap the right edge of a page to page forward and the left edge to page backward.
  8. Double-tap or reverse pinch to zoom into a page.
  9. Slide to move to a particular place on the page.
  10. Double-tap or pinch to zoom out.
  11. Tap on the center of a page containing text.
  12. Tap the Contents icon and tap Text View to switch to Text View.

Reading in Text View and Reading Newspapers

Magazines that aren’t Page View enabled always display in Text View and do not offer the option of displaying in Page View. The experience of reading a magazine in Text View and reading a newspaper is identical.

  1. From the Newsstand, tap a magazine that is not Page View enabled or tap a newspaper.
  2. Tap the center of a page to show the Progress and Options bars.
  3. Tap the arrows on the Progress bar to move forward and backwards through articles.
  4. Tap the Text icon to change text size, typeface, and color options.
  5. Tap the Contents icon to display a list of articles and sections.
  6. Tap an article to go to that article.
  7. Swipe left to move forward one page or swipe right to move back one page. You can also tap the right edge of a page to page forward and the left edge to page backward.
