Updated PressReader for Android Released!

News junkies rejoice! PressReader v1.1.11.0221, now available for download through the Android Market or PressReader.com, brings users some great new features, functionality, enhancements and fixes.

With PressReader for Android v1.1.11.0221, users now have the ability to:

  • Easily set up new accounts using in app registration
  • Share articles via Twitter and Facebook
  • Select and designate favorite titles (synced with PressDisplay.com “My Newspapers”)
  • Sort and view titles in Store by favorite designation or recently ordered (in addition to country or language)
  • Intuitively browse supplements grouped under respective main publications with the option to “download all supplements”  (a note to Pay As You Go subscribers:  once a supplement is purchased within a supplement group, all others within that group are available free of charge)

…where they will be able to enjoy:

  • A streamlined auto-delivery process where a publication’s latest issue will be downloaded rather than its complete issue history
  • A notification message appearing in the system bar advising download completion
  • Enhanced search functionality when searching within a specific country (i.e. results from that specific country will appear first)
  • The ability to select a specific account if multiple accounts have been authorized

…and will no longer have to worry about:

  • The unavailability of 7 free trial issues associated with each new PressReader installation
  • Not being able to “Connect to the server”
  • Purchasing individual issues without receiving a confirmation prompt (applies to Pay As You Go subscribers only)
