Back in 2011 we reviewed PressReader, an app for iOS devices to read newspapers and publications. PressReader has just been updated to version 3.2.
What is PressReader?
PressReader is a free application that enables you to download your favourite publications to your PC, Mac, tablet, mobile device or eReader allowing you to read them even when you’re offline.
