NewspaperDirect Creates New Reading Experience With SmartFlow

Jan 04, 2012 overhauled its PressReader iPad app to add a number of updated features, including SmartFlow, which presents newspapers as a fluid stream of articles. SmartFlow is exclusive to PressReader 3.0; it blends the traditional way of reading newspapers with a new, horizontal scrolling approach.

SmartFlow is also directly connected with the Page View of the newspaper, thus allowing users to switch back to the original view of the page. Additional features, among others, for PressReader 3.0 include SmartZoom, which automatically positions the zoomed-in view to the beginning of an article; updated searching, sharing, and saving capabilities; as well as the ability to listen to articles with Newspaper Radio.

Through PressReader, NewspaperDirect provides access to more than 2,000 full-content newspapers from 95 countries in 52 languages. PressReader is available for free download from the Apple iTunes App Store. Most individual newspapers and magazines on PressReader can be purchased for $0.99 per issue. PressReader also offers monthly subscriptions.
