They say electronic media is putting traditional newspaper forms out of business. And with iOS universal applications like PressReader, it is easy to see why. PressReader virtually brings newspapers to the iPad in a realistic user interface as if the reader is actually reading a newspaper in their own hands — minus the paper feel and ink stains.
The reading experience is similar to the black-and-white text one would be used to when reading a physical newspaper; however, there are lots of extras like the opportunity to focus on one story, share through many social networks, and much more. While the user experience is not going to be quite as rich on an iPhone or iPod Touch, this app does allow access to over 2,000 newspapers from 95 different countries. There is no other application that provides this much newspaper content all in one place. One caveat when using this app — if you want access to more than some top story news, you’ll need to subscribe to a paper or longer subscription through pressdisplay.com. PressReader is a great app for anyone wanting to get a plentiful newspaper experience on their iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch without having to have home delivery.
