I published an article just a few minutes ago that explained how you can read 20 digital magazines free of charge using the user agent of Apple's iPhone on desktop systems or other mobile phones. Turns out it was not the only offer exclusive to Apple's iPhone, with Texterity Magazines offering 50 magazines to iPhone device owners free of charge as well.

The user agent is again used to determine whether the magazines are free to look at or not, so all that is left to do is change your web browser's user agent to the iPhone one to access the contents of the site for free.Depending on your browser you may be able to use an extension like User Agent Switcher for Firefox to do just that.

When you have changed the user agent visit the Texterity Magazine start page to browse and read the 50 or so magazines offered there to iPhone users.

If you have not done this visit my first article that explains how you can change the User Agent in Firefox to be identified as an iPhone (Iphone user agent) when browsing the Internet.

Some titles that you can read there are The American Lawyer, Electronic Products, Extreme How-To, Greenlight Magazine and Popular Science.

Update: It appears that the website is no longer offering the magazines as digital editions, so that it is no longer necessary to change the user agent to access them on the Internet.
