Magzter provides multiple ways to read magazines, subscribers or magazine buyers can read through the web browser, iOS App, Android App, Windows Store App and many more. Magazines can also be download on different devices such as iPhone, iPad and Android to be read offline and for later use.

While the iOS and Android App support offline reading, the magazines are not kept forever as the download magazines cannot be exported or saved to other folder locations. Offically there is no way that allows magazines on Magzter to be exported or saved in PDF, pictures or ebook format
