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.

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.”

- PageView: read full publications or pages just as they appear in print
