We’ve released an update to the PressReader for Android app just in time for the holidays! Our favorite new feature will allow you to open publications in the catalog immediately. Go ahead – dive into articles on the first few pages while the rest of the issue downloads in the background. This change will dramatically improve the speed at which you can browse through the titles available. We think that you’ll love it, particularly now that we offer more than 5,000 magazines and newspapers on PressReader!

There are some slight changes that have been made to the ordering interface so that you can access this new feature. Here is how it all breaks down:

Click mapping

  1. Tap on the name of the title if you’re looking for previous issues of this title, or available supplements.
  2. Tap on the download arrow to order the issue and initiate the download while you continue to browse the catalog.
  3. Tap on the cover itself if you’d like to immediately start reading a publication while it loads in the background.

Do you have plans to travel this busy holiday season? We have something for that, too! The new Android app will integrate with your own device’s text-to-speech engine, so that you can listen to stories with the audio preferences you’ve already customized on your mobile. This upgrade features full Bluetooth support, which will come in handy on those long road trips.

We’d love to hear what you think! Visit our forums or leave a review with your comments.

Happy reading!
The PressReader Team
