PressReader v2.0 for iPad & iPhone released!

After several weeks of anticipation, PressReader version 2.0 for iPad and iPhone is now available for download through the iTunes App Store.

With a new streamlined User Interface, PressReader now includes:

  • A new Library Shelf view for downloaded titles
  • Improved navigation with bottom slider control for previewing and selecting sections and pages
  • Ability to automatically remove publications after 60 days (users can still choose to automatically remove issues after 3, 7, 14, or 30 days or choose not to automatically remove old publications)
  • A simplified automatic delivery process
  • Ability to exclude downloaded publications while backing up device through iTunes (available through your iPad’s Global App Settings: iPad Settings > Apps > PressReader  > Turn off “backup content”)

Please note that if you’re receiving a “corrupted device ID” error message after installing PressReader v2.0 (which has been appearing sporadically – you might know why ;)), simply uninstall PressReader and re-install it again directly from the App Store.

If you’re impressed with version 2.0 of PressReader, please post your comments on iTunes! We’d love to hear what you have to say and we’re always thrilled when you share your thoughts and comments with others in the iTunes community :).

    There’s a new PressReader update,
    I use it each morning at eight,
    The broadsheet downloads,
    I put on some clothes,
    The paper is lying in wait.

    Thanks for v2.0. Seeing a snapshot of the front page before buying is a nice addition, as are the bigger thumbnails in library view. Twitter says you’re already working on v3.0, so I thought I’d make some suggestions:

    – option to switch to two-page view
    – zippier zooming
    – buttons for creating and viewing bookmarks
    – ability to turn off that grey bar at the bottom; the list was easier to use and was always hidden 🙂
