PressReader wins “2011 Best App Ever” Award!

We’re extremely excited to announce that PressReader has won the “2011 Best App Ever” award – iOS newspaper category – as voted by the readers of 148Apps!

Providing readers with over 2,000 full-content newspapers from 94 countries, PressReader beat out notable apps including The Daily, Flipboard, Guardian iPad Edition, NY Times, USA TODAY, and The Wall Street Journal Mobile.

We are committed to continually innovating to exceed the expectations of our readers and publishing partners,” said Alex Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. “PressReader 3.0 with SmartFlow technology is just one step in our journey to an unparalleled reading experience for newspapers and magazines. We are delighted with the award because it tells us we’re giving readers what they want — the best news-reading experience on the iPhone and iPad. I am looking forward to offering that same experience on every platform we support in the very near future.

Created by the editors of 148Apps to celebrate the best mobile apps and games available, the goal of “The Best App Ever” Awards is to gather together the favorite apps of real users. For each category, the winners are voted for in both iOS (iPhone and iPad combined) and Android divisions.

Thanks to each and every single one of our users who voted! Here’s hoping we win in both the iOS and Android categories next year.
