Killer App!!!!

Newspapers in their intended format, delivered fresh each day to your screen, at a fraction of their subscription rate, where you can quickly "share" articles, never get ink on fingers, and have no trees harmed in the process... A total win for everyone but the paperboy :)

Not Win 10 friendly

Worked great on my Surface Pro 2 running Windows 8.1, but after upgrading to Win 10, has major problems in completing downloads of my National Post subscription. Clean re-install of system and apps did not help.

Just like getting the actual paper

Displays my digital subscription to the Washington Post beautifully. All issues saved for offline viewing which is important because I travel a lot and do not always have, or want to pay for, a internet connection. Wish my local paper in Orlando would use it. But, stop pushing free papers to me.

Tech support is never there on weekends

After today's (5/17) update, neither my iPad or Surface app would work. The biggest problem I've found is, if something goes wrong over a weekend, you're out of luck until Monday. Whenever the app is working okay, it's great. My wife's iPad works perfectly. My Microsoft Surface Pro crashes at least 2 or 3 times while reading the paper every morning. Update: The app is now finally working.

Not cool with Windows 10

PressReader was working fine with Windows 8.1. But when I updated to 10, this app will not download each day's newspapers unless I uninstall it each day and reinstall it. 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!

Press Reader

I find that this app is not as user friendly as it could be. I find that I must download manually issues that are set for auto download.

Getting better

More reliable than before. Adding publications subscribed to through the publisher is still a mystery.

Hi Randy, We get quite a few questions about how to add multiple subscriptions to the PressReader app. There is a video that might help answer some of your questions on our YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/rrPNuhobgzc. You can also speak with us directly in the new Community forum on our site: https://care.pressreader.com. I hope that this helps! Thanks for taking the time to review our app.

Great reading experience

Great app, with a good selection of press titles. It work with my subscription account of the Portuguese newspaper Público, which is awesome!

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
