PressReader for Windows 8 released!

We’re very excited to announce that PressReader for the Windows 8 platform on Intel devices (Surface App coming soon!) is now available for download from the Microsoft Windows app store!

With over 2,300 newspapers and magazines from 100 countries, Windows 8 users can now read their favorite publications using PressReader’s advanced features, including:

  • SmartFlow advanced reading technology, which enhances the traditional replica newspaper presentation by displaying articles as a continuous, horizontal stream of stories that flow across Windows 8, transforming the reading experience. Visual cues indicate the relative importance of individual stories, and SmartFlow surfaces related content that might otherwise be missed
  • Instant switching between Replica/Page View and SmartFlow viewing
  • SmartZoom automatically positions the zoomed-in view to the beginning of an article
  • Press and hold (i.e. Long Press) activation of contextually driven actions:
    • Utilizes the Share charm to share stories by email, or on Facebook or Twitter
    • Share articles using Evernote
    • Listen to articles using on-demand audio
    • Share opinions by supporting or opposing a story
  • Adjustable font size for optimum readability
  • Utilizes the Search charm for cross-title search
  • Desktop thumbnails of the most recently downloaded publications for instant access to the latest issues
  • Auto-delivery of favorite publications
  • Authorization of PressReader with a subscription
