When I try to read my digital copy of the magazine on Android I get the message that Flash player is required and then that Flash Player is not compatible with my device (Galaxy Note Pro 12.2).

Any suggestions?

Hi.

Do you mean the digital edition of PC Advisor?

There is a way round the fact that Flash is not compatible with your device.

Apparently the Dolphin browser is incompatible and installing Flash doesn't seem possible yet, second page android central forum .

Yes.

I don't use Dolphin, only FF and Chrome. Android version is Lollipop

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm a bit loath to download another browser just for one monthly usage!

How to read a Zinio publication (Android) click here

If you receive the error message “Adobe Flash 10 Required” this indicates you are attempting to view a publication from a web browser on zinio.com. It is not possible to read from a web browser but this is easy to resolve:

1 Install or open the Zinio App from your Android device

2 Tap on Read (the book icon)

3 Tap on the publication to read it.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I've also remembered there is a programme (Windows) Called Zinio Reader 4, or some such, so I'll have look and see if it's been read across to Android.

I had forgotten that my link was to use with a Dolphin browser, but I am sure there is a way round the problem albeit not though that link

Thank you, your method worked perfectly.

Thanks for all other responses.

I tend to be stuck in Windows mode and go first to my browser for everything, forgetting that there are so many dedicated apps in Android!
