PressReader For iOS - The Best App With The Widest Range Of Newspapers And Magazines Across The World

PressReader For iOS - The Best App With The Widest Range Of Newspapers And Magazines Across The World

iTunes Description
If you’re looking for the ultimate reading experience for your favorite newspapers and magazines, then you have to try PressReader 3.1.2. With its SmartFlow content presentation design, PressReader is without a doubt the most engaging, feature-rich and entertaining newspaper and magazine reading application you’ll ever use.
Browse and read full digital replicas of thousands of newspapers and magazines from 97 countries just like you would in print. Or journey through the attention-grabbing SmartFlow stream of articles where visual clues will not only enhance your reading experience, they will reveal new gems of content you’ll be delighted to discover.

If you are not convinced with the above description, let us give you a detailed description of the app and the reasons why you should go for it.

PressReader Is Optimized For Your Device :
Be it an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5, pressreader fits perfectly on your screen allowing you to enjoy the large screen of iPhone 5. If you are wondering that the app might stretch out while using it on an iPad, you should check the screenshots below. The app is optimized to take the full control of the iPad screen and yes it is Retina Ready. The text looks crispier and the images look brighter and sharper. It gives you a delightful reading experience (unless the news is bad :p)

Content Library :
This is the most amazing feature of PressReader. The app supports over 2,300 newspapers and magazines printed across the world in over 59 different languages. You can read local news papers in English, French, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Turkish, Hindi, Arabic, Spanish and many more. There has never been an app in the entire iOS store that supports such a varied content bypassing the geographical and linguistic boundaries.

Reading View :
PressReader supports both landscape and portrait reading view. Nothing new, isn't it ? Well, the app not only supports rotation but also has a scroll-view bar at the bottom allowing you to smoothly move your finger to select the page that you'd like to read. The flow is very smooth giving an amazing navigation experience.

Smart View :
Smart view is yet again an incredible feature of pressreader. The app understands that you are a busy person and have barely enough time to switch through multiple apps to read newspapers and when it comes to translating an article from an unknown language, well, that's a pain.

Smart View, basically saves your time by not just reading out the entire news paper but by also translating the selected newspaper into the desired language. Isn't that cool! Imagine you are in a situation where you need to read an article that appeared in a Spanish news paper. Your first choice would be to select a Spanish newspaper then copy the article and then translate it using Google translator. That's pretty tiring and time consuming job. With PressReader, all you need to do is select that language that you want the app to translate and read out the article into and you are good to go!

English - Spanish Translation

Beautiful Shelves :
I do have a library of my own and trust me I like it more when the shelves are clean and properly aligned with books in an organized layout. PressReader does that job in a remarkable way. It categories newspapers and magazines separately and this categorization is also categorized under the date when they were issued and downloaded. That's neat! 

You can also select the layout option in two ways - Thumbnails or List and I think the thumbnail view looks better as it give a better look of the shelve.

Quick Headlines (Top Stories):
Like I mentioned earlier, pressreader understands the importance of your time and hence there is an option of reading the top stories. Now the best part is you are change these headlines. For example, imagine your wife and kids went for Christmas celebration to their granny's place but you could and hence you are worried about the storm which is getting worse. You can select the local newspaper of the city where your family has gone and keep checking the headlines for any latest news.

Sources :
You can select the news from various sources, either by browsing through the most viewed newspaper or in an alphabetical order or if you are impatient then you can select the one with the most recent timestamp. The point that I'd like to highlight about press reader here is that you have got multiple resources to get updated with the latest news. You can either casually view the most popular newspaper or view the most recent newspaper.

Auto Subscription :
While downloading a newspaper, you will notice an option that says auto subscribe, this feature will allow your app to automatically look for an update for the newspaper or the magazine that is being downloaded and then automatically download it by notifying you.

You need to be very sure if you are enabling this feature as it will automatically purchase the next update and then download it. If you want to disable the auto subscription, all you need to do is go to settings and disable auto subscription.

Pay As You Go :
PressReader has convenient pricing plans. you can either opt for a monthly subscription of $29.95 or go with the option of paying $0.99 for every download. If you spend a lot of time reading, then a monthly subscription is advisable.

Better Sharing :
There is no app that does not include sharing options and when it comes to sharing, PressReader is not running behind any app with regards to sharing. You can share your opinion on a particular news by supporting or opposing it. You can also save articles to popular after reading apps like Evernote and Instapaper. You can also share the new via twitter and Facebook.
