Want to read magazines and Newspapers on your tablet with Windows 8/RT, but we are confident that the Windows Store is no such application that would keep them all in one place? I assure you, you are mistaken. These applications, several, but today I will tell you about PressReader.
To manage your subscriptions to magazines and Newspapers on the device with Windows 8, you can use several options, including the official apps like Zinio and Nook. But because of their exclusively Western orientation, these two applications did not fit the Russian user, you can not say about PressReader.
Guess many of you have heard about it, and some use on a device with iOS or Android. In the Windows Store this app has paved its way for more than a year ago, but only now I got around to write a quick review.
Those of you who met PressReader functionality on other platforms, should know that the application provides access to several thousand journals and Newspapers from many countries of the world. At the moment, PressReader covers 97 countries and 55 languages (including Russian), which is very impressive. The other good news is that the first 7 Newspapers or magazines you can get totally free, but then have to pay for every issue, or subscribe to subscription plans.
Magazines and Newspapers in the app look exactly like their printed versions, since this specificity PressReader. For readability, the app allows you to zoom pages, as well as the size and type of font.
You can turn on and automatically download recent issues of your favorite publications, and the selection of publications is possible in their language or country of production. In addition, the app shows the number of publications available for a specific country or specific language. For example, number of publications, which are available in Russian, PressReader nearly one hundred and fifty. All publications can be sorted alphabetically, by popularity or newness. And inside each magazine or newspaper has a table of contents that allows you to quickly transferred from one heading to another, providing additional comfort.
The app itself is available for free (link below), but as mentioned above, after you download the first seven issues, you may need either to buy a subscription or pay for each new issue. By the way, a couple of days ago PressReader got a version for Windows Phone 8, but we’ll tell about it later.
