MagMe Lets You Read US Magazines Online For Free

magmeFancy reading US magazines without having to track down physical copies? MagMe offers direct renditions of magazines inside your browser.

While magazines are sorted into categories, many of these didn’t work during our tests, or only offered relatively obscure titles. However, the ‘International’ category offers a good range of US titles, including well-known titles like National Geographic, Billboard, Cosmopolitan and PC Magazine. (I’m guessing there’s some deal where these are visible to non-US users, while Americans are directed towards print subscriptions). There’s also plenty of obscure Japanese teen titles.

The site certainly isn’t ideal for reading larger magazines, as it doesn’t resize or offer any zoom features: you’ll do OK on a large monitor, but it’s a tad messy on notebooks. Other than that, navigating through magazines is pretty straightforward. MagMe requires signup to use its library and commenting features, but you can read any magazine by clicking on the ‘Read as a guest’ button when it asks you to log in.
