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

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.

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.

Hi Peter, Thanks for your feedback! There are more options for managing your account on our website (www.pressreader.com). If you login there, and click to the Manage Account page (from the top right corner), you will be able to see all of your account settings. You can manage your authorized devices at the bottom of this page, in the "PressReader Installations" section. I hope this helps! Happy reading :)

Thanks for the feedback, Dave! Separating national and regional titles is a great idea. We'd also love to know more about your device to see if we can't solve the installation problem that you describe. If you'd like, you can reach us at care@pressreader.com and we'll troubleshoot this with you. - The PressReader Care Team

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!

Latest update breaks fullscreen

Latest update to Win10 app killed true fullscreen ability that was present in the previous version. It now shows the Windows taskbar even in "fullscreen" mode. Server access and newspaper downloads is often slow. Crashes occasionally. Ipad version is better.

Finally got it right

The newest version with Windows 10, works well. This is This is the best newspaper app. It's just like reading the paper, minus the dirty hands or having to hunt for the paper in the bushes.

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 :)
