I downloaded the Weekly Shonen Jump app on my android quite some time ago, and I absolutely love it.

However, I'd really like to get my hands on any other weekly/monthly publications similar to this, but in English.

Does anybody know where I can find it, or is Weekly Shonen Jump the only option?

Mangabox - https://www.mangabox.me/reader/en/ has an app. I use the iOS one, but it looks like they also have one for Android.

Like WSJ it's an anthology of different series, most of which come out weekly. Unlike WSJ, it's free. It's got a bigger range of material than WSJ, so you'll probably be able to find a couple of titles to enjoy regularly. While WSJ is geared toward shonen, Mangabox has more adult stuff.

(BTW, I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum)

ETA: Unlike WSJ, the Mangabox issues do expire (right now it's something like 90 days or 3 months). I also think you need to be online to access. Can't download like you can WSJ.

It's not exactly in magazine format, but if you like Weekly Shonen Jump, you might like Weekly Shonen Magazine as well, and a couple of the chapters from Weekly Shonen Magazine come out here on Crunchyroll every Tuesday at 8pm ET.

Titles include:
• Fairy Tail
• Seven Deadly Sins
• UQ Holder
• Fuuka
• Yamada-kun and The Seven Witches
• As the Gods Will - The Second Series

Excluding Fairy Tail, you can catch up to these titles from the beginning before you read them every week.

Crunchyroll also has a bunch of other simulpubs from other magazines, some weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
