Windows 8.1 App Watch: PressReader

The official PressReader client hit the Windows Store towards the end of last year, and since then it has raked up plenty of downloads and a high rating from users.

The developers boast that it provides the most immersive and rewarding news reading experience, and it is easy to see how. PressReader brings thousands of newspapers and magazines from 97 countries and in 55 languages right in the Metro environment of your Windows powered device, with style.

The official description, before we get to the details:

“Browse, zoom in and read full digital replicas of thousands of newspapers and magazines from 97 countries just like you would in print. Or journey through the attention-grabbing SmartFlow stream of articles where visual clues will not only enhance your reading experience, they will reveal new gems of content you’ll be delighted to discover.”

You do need a subscription to make the most of this app, though some free trials are available.

It automatically delivers your favorite publication and notifies you of new papers and magazines to read. Speaking of which, reading is an absolute delight on this app, thanks to its optimized and refined user interface, along with a variety of adjustment options.

The interface is Metro, in a minimalistic sort of way, and the free app supports all modern versions of Windows, including x86, x64 and ARM.
