PressReader's SmartFlow makes Reading Newspapers more Enjoyable

Aggregators are great, but for those who love print news, PressReader has a library of thousands of newspapers from around the world, exactly as they appear in print and in over 50 languages. PressReader has always been feature-rich, including auto-delivery of favorite papers, read-aloud, pinch-to-zoom, lots of sharing options and other features common to reading and news apps. In version 3.0, they have added the feature I have been hoping to see: SmartFlow.

SmartFlow gives readers a more polished and fluid iPad magazine feel. Stories are presented using the full screen to maximum advantage. Readers can now glide through the stories, expanding those of interest without page-hopping, allowing readers to focus on what is of interest and discover stories they may have otherwise skipped. Font size is scalable and changing it neatly realigns columns.

Papers from the vast catalog can be purchased singly or subscriptions open the entire library. For news from around the world and around the corner, PressReader brings print papers to iOS in an inviting fashion, and offers hope that newspapers don’t have to go the way of the Dodo.
