TechReview: PressReader App


Aside from just getting questions on beauty products or fashion trends, a lot of my friends also asked me about the best mobile applications for their tablets and phones. I am not a highly technical person but with my intense desire to share more information on this blog to help and inspire others, I thought of incorporating a new portion here in my blog, the TechReview, which will feature digital applications and anything digital fit to your lifestyle.

Anyway, for my first TechReview, I'll be featuring a new mobile application which allows you to read hundreds of stories from around the world, PressReader. A digital reading application, PressReader provides access to almost 2300+  headlines from over 96 countries and in 54 languages, all in just a slight touch of your fingertips. Perfect for travelers like me, don't you think? 

A whole month subscription in PressReader amounts to $29.95, which allows you access to full content of newspapers, magazines and publications in the planet. However, if you're not a newspaper savvy, you can choose to pay for a single subscription of your favorite publication for only $.99 per download. Not bad, right? 

By clicking on the "Sources" button, you can be able to choose which newspaper to read from among the list of countries indicated. The number beside the country indicates how many publications are available for the day.

The "Top Stories" tab features the latest and the best headlines from different newspapers found in different countries.

What I like about PressReader:
  • This app is very easy to navigate and user-friendly. It provides a tutorial on how to go around this application. A newbie will not experience any difficulty in using this application.
  • It allows you to get a grasp of your favorite newspapers and publications in digital versions. No need to carry magazines and publications anywhere you go. Also, if you recently missed out on a certain edition, you can access it through PressReader.
  • It allows you to share the information in your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in just a click.
  • It provides a wide array of newspapers, magazines and publications to choose from, either local, national or even international news. With the use of the "Search" button, you can easily look for your favorites.
  • At the lower portion is the Pages tab, wherein it allows you to quickly jump from one page to another.
  • You can zoom in on the text and images, making the newspaper reading experience a whole lot better.
  • An access to a lot of publications for only $29.95 a month is quite practical instead of paying for your daily ration of newspaper.
  • It also has a digital reader which means that you can listen to the texts on the newspaper instead of reading it.

What I don't like about PressReader:

  • The app is a bit sluggish when you're downloading publications with large images.
  • I wish it could have been better if you can access your downloads even when you're not connected to the internet.
  • I wish it has Vogue.

I recommend this app to those who are always traveling, to those who are socially curious about what's happening worldwide, to expats and to our OFW relatives and friends who always want to hear about the current events in our country. You may download the application in iTunes for free but the subscription has its separate cost.

Have you also tried PressReader? What are your thoughts about it?

Disclaimer: PressReader provided me with a one-month subscription of this application for purposes of review. Ideas and opinions in this post are honestly and entirely my own.

So if you happen to wonder anything about your latest gadget applications, or if there's a new app that you want me try out before buying it for yourself, drop it in my comment box or shoot me an email at and I'll try my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
