Great for people who love real newspapers

I love the access to so many newspapers in their original format. I read several national and Local papers and having the original format and the convenient access is great. Also it is less expensive than subscribing to the individual papers. Great app love the update. JJ

Love it!

No more carrying the paper with me. Works really good and easy to read, I actually read more of the paper. Would be five stars if the app allowed you to see more of your account settings and such. Would be really good if you could authorize and reauthorize devices on your own instead of contacting support and having them do it like I had to.

Very nice app, love the international content!

The selection of available newspapers and magazines, especially those from other countries, is second to none. I also love being able to see both a readable view and the original layout in most cases. The only thing that I have some trouble with is getting the "Share" option to access the default Windows Mail app. Other than that, it works just great, including sharing to various online services and social networks. A choice of background/font colors could be a nice future addition. Thank you!

Support can be/not always frustrating

I probably would have gone 3 1/2 if available. The program itself is getting better, but the challenge is the support is e-mail based only and somewhat slower than I'm use to. IF they understand your issue, response time is the only negative. Last problem -- especially those involving subscription publications that are available through the publisher rather than PressReader -- required multiple e-mails and were not resolved for weeks. I am not sure whether this is the case for subscriptions acquired through the application. I like the cross platform aspect. Runs on my Windows 10 computers and 2 Android devices. It's getting better.

Happy Expat

I can get most of my UK papers now, exactly as they would look in print. Generally happy with the app, it works on my iPad, android tablet and Windows tablet. Sometimes the app can be a little sluggish and non responsive, but generally it is good.

Great app

This app brings newspaper and magazines in their traditional format to the reader in an easy to use app with lots of features. I use it to reader the New York Times, which I no longer read in paper form.

I depend on this app

The app updated itself silently two days ago. It seems stable.But they changed the user interface a bit. Worst of all the title bar now appears-- in full screen mode. And that steals precious space from pages. PressReader was working fine with Windows 8.1. But when I first updated to 10, this app would not download each day's newspapers unless I uninstalled it each day and reinstalled it. Sometimes the Android app will balk at downloading but not on the same days. Once the papers are downloaded they display properly and I like that Windows 10 now allows me to choose a resizable window or full screen. I've been using PressReader under Android for a few years now and the developer has a spotty record of squashing bugs and updating on a timely basis. When it works well it's wonderful. But I wish I had more confidence in the operation that's behind it!
