Zinio App Closing
Starting June 27, the OneClickDigital and Zinio apps have been merged into one app called the RBdigital app. You will be prompted to update your apps to the new RBdigital app.

RBdigital App FAQ
Q: What will happen to the Zinio for Libraries app installed on my devices?
Starting around July 10, you will receive a notification within the current Zinio for Libraries app alerting you to the availability of the new RBdigital app and giving you the option to download it. The message will also show a counter counting down the timeframe for when the app will no longer function (currently planned for Sept. 8).

Q: Will my Zinio username or password change?
No. When you install the RBdigital app, you will log in with the same username and password used for the Zinio for Libraries app.

Q: What happens to the Zinio for Libraries app after I download the new RBdigital app?
The Zinio for Libraries app will remain on your device until you delete it. When the Zinio for Libraries app is deleted, all downloaded magazines will be removed from your 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.

Q: What happens to the Zinio for Libraries app after its shutdown?
At the end of the countdown the Zinio for Libraries app will be locked and patrons will see a message encouraging them to download the new app, but they cannot access the new app until they download and install it.

Q: What will happen to the Zinio name?
The Zinio brand will eventually be phased out. RBdigital will be the new brand for downloading magazines and literary classic audiobooks.
