Over the years, we’ve come across many different release blogs which announce scene and P2P releases to the public. However, I don’t think we’ve ever featured a release blog dedicated to announcing new magazine releases. StoreMags is a site which does exactly that – it indexes latest issues of popular international magazines. These are freely downloadable and are in true PDF format, allowing them to be read either on your personal computer or on a portable device such as the iPad. Unlike some magazine download sites that we have come across, StoreMags is not full of obsolete crap. The collection here is pretty impressive, with some world renowned issues such as PC World, Macworld, Hello!, PC Magazine, etc being actively indexed.
At a glance, StoreMags looks like your average release blog – a separate post is made for each magazine , along with a brief description, a screenshot and of course, download links for the full PDF version. You can customize the view to a grid based layout instead of the default individual post structure. This is excellent for browsing through new releases quickly and we highly recommend you switch to this view. To change the view, locate the ‘Select View’ drop down in top right corner of the page, and set the value to ‘Grid’. Some of the indexed magazine covers, as shown in the Grid view are seen below:
There are all sorts of magazines indexed on StoreMags, ranging from Computer mags to Cooking, Fitness and even History related titles – official statement is there are over 39000 files indexed (which we can’t verify). Uploads are categorized based on type of content and you can easily browse through these categories from the right sidebar. Note that some adult themed magazines are also indexed here.
As you might have guessed, StoreMags does not host any of the PDF files on their own servers. What it offers instead is a verified, reliable download link pointing to a file that’s usually hosted on a one click hosting service. So far, I have not come across any broken links on this site.
Storemags is a freely accessible site that is open to the public. Registration is not required to download any content.
