PressReader has been flying around on different platforms including Windows, Android, iOS and BlackBerry, for a while now. We recently checked out the iPad version and felt a bit of regret for not having done that a little earlier.
PressReader app is a shelf where we you can get hold of your newspaper subscriptions. It brings the exact digital replica of the newspapers, be it New York Post, The Los Angeles Times or The Washington Post.
The main menu on the app shows a list of downloaded newspapers, and you need to just tap to read. The tapping, flipping and swiping are pretty responsive but zooming in takes a bit a time for the app to render the article.
PressReader’s big attraction is that it features 2,200 full-content newspapers and magazine ready for subscription. Besides that, it also has media from over 97 countries in 54 languages.
One of main things to note for this app is the audio feature. News articles will be highlighted with an icon. Tapping the icon will get you to a window that has summarized content of the article and the option to listen to the news.
The app is free to download on iTunes, but downloading any your newspaper will cost you $0.99. If you are looking for a monthly subscription, they are offering a complete package for $33.99 , which seems to be a good deal.
