Readers looking for top quality news on their mobile devices can now find the full content of their favorite news sources more easily with the release of a new version of the top digital news reader, PressReader. The company has released an updated version of its extremely popular iOS app, a digital news reader serving 30 million readers around the world with access to thousands of original newspapers and magazines.
The updated app allows for better search and display of newspapers and magazines from around the world – from Paris to New York, Beijing to Moscow, and Sydney to Buenos Aires. PressReader offers full content from more than 2,800 newspapers and magazines in over 100 countries and 60 languages. Best of all, readers can consume full stories (not just snippets like news aggregators) in their personalized home feed.
Quality articles from the world’s best sources are presented in a perpetually current stream, so readers never miss an important story or interesting news. Readers can also download full publications just as they appear in print.
“We are revolutionizing how people connect through news, and this update is, without a doubt, the most feature-rich and entertaining digital newsstand app for quality content from thousands of sources,” said Alexander Kroogman, PressReader’s Chief Executive Officer. “Discovering new content and titles to fuel your interests has never been easier, while PressReader’s social features allow you to easily bookmark, share and discuss news with other readers – all from a single app.”
With the PressReader app, readers can further personalize their reading experience with more options to choose publications by special interests, publication type, language or country. A stunning, new, visual titles catalog makes it easier to find well-known publications like The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, The Guardian, Home and Décor, T3, Marie Claire, Les Echos, The Globe and Mail and more, as well as to discover new titles that inspire and inform.
PressReader offers an impressive and quickly growing catalog of the world’s best titles, including a notable collection of 700+ international magazines. Readers can even combine and add sections from their favorite titles into their home newsfeed to create their own publication.
“PressReader’s technology is leading-edge with its in-place story expansion, natural horizontal reading flow, customizable story collection, and assortment of intuitive and powerful features,” added Kroogman. “With its vast number of interactive features, it’s truly the best way to read real news from credible sources on a mobile device.”
Key features in the updated PressReader app include:
- Categories: find new special interest titles faster with the ability to further filter by interests, language, country and publication type
- SmartFlow: read full stories in an attention-grabbing, horizontal news stream format
- PageView: read full publications or pages just as they appear in print
- Bookmarks: store, organize and automatically sync articles across devices for later reading, reference or sharing
- Radio: choose articles or publications from the app and have them read out loud; the perfect companion to stay up-to-date with news on-the-go
- Translation: instantly translate stories in up to 17 languages; see different perspectives about news from around the world
The updated PressReader app is available on iOS immediately with versions for Android, BlackBerry 10 and Windows 8 following soon. Readers can also access PressReader on the Web at www.pressreader.com, or via PressReader’s Samsung Smart TV app, enjoying an entertaining and consistent experience on any device.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
