Version History

Launched Oct 20, 2009 (over 8 years ago).

Releasing new versions every about 2 months, on average.

May 28
2018
(Current)
Version 5.3.1

We’ve changed our privacy policy, terms of use and software license agreements to be more transparent and to keep up with changes to European data protection law. Take a moment to review the new policies here: https://www.pressreader.com/help/policies

We’ve also made an update to the default page view from single page to double for our readers who use landscape mode on larger iPhones. This release includes small bug fixes and updates.

May 07
2018
Version 5.3

We’ve improved the performance of scrolling through stories in text view.

We've updated search to make it easier for you to find and download favorite issues, and fixed a few bugs.

Feb 20
2018
Version 5.2.6

We made some of our HotSpots bigger. That means you have more places to connect to PressReader and download entire issues to your device.

Dec 18
2017
Version 5.2.5

We've returned Facebook and Twitter sign in for our friends using iOS 11. Our team has also checked the log files that you've sent in to make the app better, and removed a few bugs.

Nov 28
2017
Version 5.2.4

We adjusted the interface a little bit so it’s prettier to look at and easier to use. We also repaired some of the crashes you told us about (thanks for that) and squashed a few bugs.

Nov 02
2017
Version 5.2.3

Bugs, bugs, bugs... We've fixed a bug affecting readers who wanted to connect to a HotSpot using location services. You can once again skip WiFi login to connect to location-based HotSpots. The table of contents inside a few publications was not clickable. We've fixed that too. And, we've eliminated bugs affecting iPhone X and iOS 11.

Oct 13
2017
Version 5.2.2

We now support iOS 11 and iPhone X in case you somehow got one earlier than everybody else.

Version 5.1.1

Bug fixes

version 5.1:
For the first time in the app, we're introducing a way for you use your library card to unlock the benefits of a full subscription. Keep what you download — no more library late fees! Scroll through the list or use the search field to find your library, then enter your card number and PIN.

Link all of your social profiles and your library card to your existing PressReader account. Then, you can sign in with any of your social accounts and have all your activity collected in your PressReader channel. Add your library card, Facebook, Twitter and Google accounts on the Accounts tab under social and linked networks.

Change your password right in the app. Nobody likes guessing when they last updated their password, so we've added a date stamp so that you can see when you did. You can also change the email attached to your account, and your photo or nickname.

Get quick translations of single stories to keep up to date with the world's press. Read news from many different perspectives. Expand an article and tap on the menu in the top right corner to translate it.

Fixed: Menus will now disappear as they're supposed to, particularly once an issue has been opened.

Version 5.0

It’s #timetoshine! PressReader has a new look and a whole new attitude. We’ve completely rebuilt the app experience for iPhones, and added a ton of new features for tablet readers. Here’re the best bits:

DESIGN
— Always know when you’ve successfully connected to a HotSpot. The green teacup will tell you when your magazine and newspaper downloads are being sponsored by one of our partners.
—We’ve lightened the app color scheme in keeping with our refreshed brand, and updated our logo and app icon.
— On iPhone, you can easily read entire issues. Swipe right on article snippets to pop them open and swipe back again when you’re done.
— Hide and seek is fun, but not when you’re looking for something. You’ll find the menu always on the left side on your iPad, and at the lower edge of the screen on iPhone.

FEATURES
— Look up unfamiliar words and phrases by highlighting them and tapping “Look Up”. This will return relevant dictionary, Wikipedia, website or maps results. (“Look Up” was one of our most popular feature requests — thanks for voting!)
— Skip the sign in process when you share articles using any of the apps you already have installed.
— Set the size of the type that you’re reading with our new text control.
— New users can save articles (without being signed in) to read or share later.
— Add multiple images to your comments after registering for a free account.
— Change from the printed view to a text view using the menu at the bottom of the screen.

FIXES
— We’ve added a confirmation message for single issue payments after a HotSpot connection. This will avoid any confusion if one HotSpot has expired, and you haven’t picked up a new one yet.
— The titles shown in the catalog will be in your chosen language (because that makes good sense).
— We’ve added a ‘Forgot Password?’ process to the app on iPhones.
— The account page has a back button once again. It had disappeared for readers using split screen.
— We’ve fixed the way that articles are saved to note-taking apps. Now they’ll include every piece of the article when it’s continued on multiple pages.
— The Publications page has been updated to handle a much faster scroll of the cover thumbnails.
