Tutorial Flipster for Mobile Devices support.ebsco.com
Flipster is a next-generation digital magazine service where users can access their favorite magazines from a variety of publishers. Users can access Flipster through their local libraries via a web browser on their mobile device. In this tutorial we will look at searching for magazines in Flipster on a mobile device, as well as reading a magazine in the viewer.
There are several browsing options available on the home screen. View magazines by category by tapping a link in the Categories box. Browse magazines using the Latest Issues or All Issues carousels using the arrows on the left and right. Tap on a cover image to read the magazine in the Flipster viewer.
Searching for your favorite magazines is easy. Simply enter your search terms in the Find field and tap Search. Search terms can be a specific magazine title or a subject of interest. In this example, we will browse for business magazines by tapping the Business link in the Categories box to view a result list of all related titles.
On The Flipster result list screen, you can sort your results by Title, Date, or Relevance. Simply tap the sort drop-down and select your preferred method.
When you have found a magazine you would like to read, tap the Read This Issue link.
The magazine opens in the Flipster mobile viewer. Select the Menu icon in the top left to view the available options
From the Menu, you can view the Table of Contents and pages of the issue, search for keywords within the issue, and access all available issues of the magazine.
From the Pages menu, go directly to any page in the magazine by tapping an image.
From the All Issues menu, open any available back issue by tapping the cover image.
If you are viewing Flipster on an iPad or iPad mini, Android phone or tablet, or Kindle Fire tablet you can also download the free Flipster app. The Flipster app allows you to download issues from the Flipster site and read them offline anytime. For more information, see the Flipster mobile app tutorials available on the EBSCO Tutorials page.
At any time, you can click the Help link on the Flipster site to view the online Help system.
