Magzter’s Android users can now download magazines & articles to SD Card

With Google's Android capturing over 80% of the smartphone market share across the globe, Magzter, the world's largest digital magazine newsstand, has come up with a timely and path-breaking update for its Android app. In its latest app update, Magzter has prudently come up with a new feature, which allows the users to move the app and all the downloaded magazines and articles to Secure Digital Card (SD Card). This exciting feature ensures that the users can enjoy using the Magzter app without worrying about running out of in-built phone memory. Also, Magzter has made sure that all the downloaded magazines are safely encrypted and cannot be opened with any third-party software.

According to a recent study, Android’s market share in India, which is one of Magzter’s key markets, is already 97% and its global market share is expected to cross 85% by 2020. This shows how Android has been successfully penetrating across the world and how it is increasingly becoming the most powerful medium to reach the end users. Magzter, which always strives to reach every reader from all over the world, is now keenly focusing on Android users to spread its wings and accelerate its growth.

Another interesting aspect of the Magzter's new app update is that it is perfectly optimized to work really smooth even on a 2G internet connection. Even though the mobile operators have started migrating their users to 3G and 4G connections, majority of users are still on 2G connections across the developing nations. This new app update is definitely a delight for the 2G users!

With Magzter – The reading destination offering unlimited reading of 8,200+ vernacular & international magazines, premium articles and news updates for Indian readers, users can also connect via Wi-Fi and download all that they would love to read, and access them offline anytime and anywhere on their app. This would cut down the mobile data charges for the users and also enables them to access their favorite content even without an internet connection.
