Rave Reviews for iPad/iPhone PressReader Release 2.2

Happy New Year PressReader Fans! I hope you like our holiday gift to you – a new release of PressReader that is better than ever!

We listened when you asked for more stability, faster zooming, the ability to print articles and share them on social media.   And we’ve added all those features/enhancements to this release, including support for iOS 4.2.

And if the comments on iTunes are any indication, then I think we’ve got a winner here!

Amazing resource (by Ipaddington)
Vast selection, fast loading, nice UI. Instapaper support would be the only improvement I would wish for. Nonetheless this is a true news junkie’s dream.

Much more stable (by GlenG US)
Very stable and fast finally!
Printing work like a charm

Great! (by Pixe11)

Zooming into the paper seems to be even faster now with this update (not that you need to zoom; you can just tap a headline to see a text view). I use it every day. Can’t wait to see what new features are coming in future updates.

And my personal favorite 😉

Would love to love you — and now I do (by lucenvoyage)
This is an update to my earlier review — and as promised, this is getting five stars. You seem to have done it, guys! PressReader has been working flawlessly since this latest update. I’ve used PressReader for a while, and it’s always been fantastic, when it works like it’s supposed to — and now it does!
You can get a screen shot of the real printed version of papers in varying languages from around the world, roughly when they’re published. And I really like that. The thing that makes the paper readable is the PDF engine that automatically loads a story that you can select on the screen, which is the way PressReader makes the newspapers readable on a small screen like the iPhone, or even on a larger screen like the iPad.

I love the ability to quickly “flip” through the paper, pressing on that page I want, which then pops up on the screen, with the articles highlighted and reading to read. I can download multiple newspapers from around the world in multiple languages.

Why is it better than reading from a website? Well, you get to see what the layout of the paper is, with everything, including advertisements. You get to read the news like the editors intend. . . And you can e-mail the articles to yourself or others for your records or for just interest’s sake.

For me and my work, it’s priceless. PressReader is easily the most important app on my iPhone. Now — even dizzying array of newspapers doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be nice to have even more. . .

As we turn the page on 2010, we would once again like to thank you for your continued feedback and support. PressReader has undergone significant changes and improvements over the last several months, and with your help, 2011 is shaping up for more of the same so please continue sending us your comments and suggestions. Version 2.2 of PressReader gets the ball rolling this New Year with improved stability and added functionality.

So if you haven’t checked out PressReader for a while or you haven’t upgraded to version 2.2 DO IT NOW!

Just one small thing…If you need support or you want to send us feedback, please email us at iphonesupport@newspaperdirect.com instead of using the FEEDBACK feature in the app.  It seems to have come down with the holiday fever and isn’t behaving as it should. Sorry about that.  The doctor is on it, however, and it will be back in fine form in our next release. 🙂

And if you didn’t see your favorite feature in this release, don’t worry; we have a whole list of things PressReader fans have asked for and we’re lining them up for 2011.  And, since I can’t wait for it either, I did take a sneak peek into V 2.3 and if you promise not to tell anyone, I’ll share a few of 2.3 planned features…

What do you think of:

  • Double page view in landscape mode
  • Support for instapaper and evernote.

Pretty cool, eh? But shhh….Mum’s the word, ok?  🙂

Happy New Year everyone!
