Zinio for Libraries Update

Patrons using the Zinio for Libraries app will now see a popup message when opening the app that alerts them to the changes coming soon which will require them to use the RBdigital app in the future.

The message appears on both iOS and Android devices and notes that the new app is compatible with Android 4.1 and above, and iOS 9 and above.  The popup looks like this:

You can also watch a recorded overview of the new app at https://vimeo.com/211765519

RBDigital App for e-Content Rolls Out Tomorrow

Tomorrow, on Tuesday, June 27, the new RBDigital app will roll out, allowing Wyoming library patrons to find all the downloadable audiobooks, ebooks, and digital magazines now accessed through OneClick Digital and Zinio in one convenient spot. This product is part of GoWYLD.net’s e-content resources.

The app will be available for Android, iOS, and Kindle Fire. Not only does it combine e-content in one spot, it’s also easier to navigate and has expanded help screens. Zinio users can check out magazines within the app, rather than having to go out to the website.

Some good things to know about this change:

  • The migration to RBDigital will begin at 6 p.m. MT this evening, June 26, and is expected to take approximately 14 hours. Services will be unavailable during the migration.
  • Current OneClick Digital and Zinio users will receive a notification to download RBDigital. The existing apps will be supported through a transitional period, so users will not need to upgrade immediately.
  • Upgrading to the new app is optional for now, but the old apps will be retired sometime this fall.
  • Existing checkouts will not be lost, although materials will have to be downloaded again once RBDigital is installed.

Patrons needing assistance may call for toll-free support at 877-77-AUDIO (877-772-8346). Live support is available Monday through Friday, from 7:30 AM until 6:00 PM EST. Online assistance may be found by clicking Help on the OneClick website and going to the Support tab to fill in a form describing the problems. Or they may send an email to support@oneclickdigital.com.
