Blurry Print 2/5
By Dar Bar
I'm unable to read any of my subscriptions because the font is blurred. Headlines are fine, but the rest is completely impossible to read. The magazines are just fine, but newspapers are bad.
Almost there! 4/5
Generally it’s a good app. My only problem is that there is the option to save pages to your collections, yet there is absolutely no way to actually access them?? I’m guessing this is a glitch or something. Would definitely be 5 stars if this was fixed.
For anyone else that needs this feature, the workaround that I’ve been doing is taking screenshots then cropping out the top and bottom so it shows just that page.
So many problems 1/5
By Hopalong Rabinowitz
09-14-17 final update
I today emailed NY Times to cancel my subscription, due entirely to this useless piece-of-garbage app. Latest problem is that if I don't download the issues every day, I lost that day's paper forever. No way to go back even 1 day and get the missing paper. A moronic "upgrade". I give up on this app...and I'm probably a better person for dumping the Times, too.
I subscribe to the NY Times replica edition, for which PressReader is the default viewing app. Issues aren't available or disappear, customer support is nonexistent etc. This is a terrible app choice by the NY Times and is forcing me to cancel my subscription.
04-24-17 update- PressReader won't provide support no matter what I do and I am forced to cancel my NY Times subscription. App now continually tells me to "register" even though it shows me logged in and shows my name. Won't give me any NYT issues. I give up.
Be warned, this is a horrible, horrible impossible to use app.
Worst app in the App Store 1/5
By Cranky Codger
Crashes every time I use it, often multiple times in a session. Today I can't even get to the Publications page to download. Zero stars.
Downloads are late 4/5
I love having the paper at my fingertips when I wake up. But sometimes the downloads are late, as is the delivery of my paper copy, and then I have NO paper at all. Otherwise, I think PressReader is great.
September 13, 2017 Got my NY Times on my iPhone today but it will not download on my iPad.
Doesn't work well 2/5
I read the New York Times on this app. However, there are blue highlights on the headlines which are supposed to bring the article into a column for reading like a book. Today they don't bring in text. And other days they are not even there. Can't compete with the Washington Post app.
Useful and easy! 4/5
Fun app allows quick access to numerous periodicals. Add more publications, please!
40.00 a month is a little steep. I could see if you included actual videos and newscast but that is a whole lot of money.
I like this app 4/5
I enjoy reading ny times in replica format on my iPad. It allows me to read my paper in the manner I am accustomed to without having to turn the pages.
Press Reader 4/5
By A Herrmann
Finally fixed! Now works well on my iPad Pro 10.5 inch screen.
I would like to add my frustration to the other NY Times reader reviews. The Press Reader column on the left cuts off NY Times columns and requires ridiculous slide and hold maneuvers to read the paper. I don't understand why the reading experience got worse with this update. Please fix.
Press Reader has a problem with the new iPad Pro 10.5 inch screen. It provides partial columns which require sliding and holding to read some columns. This was reported weeks ago and still not fixed.
So far, so good! 5/5
By Paddling Bear
At the risk of jinxing this app, PressReader seems to have hit a nice plateau...works well on current and not so current hardware running up to date iOS.
I personally have no complaints and wonder which iPad and what iOS the folks are running who are upset. Backwards compatibility is hard to guarantee in a rapidly changing competitive electronics era.
Drains battery 2/5
I've noticed that when using the pressreader app when not on wifi that my battery drains extremely quickly and the phone becomes hot. If I close the app this stops. This does not occur on wifi. In all cases I had previously downloaded what I was reading so that was not a factor.
What a mess! 2/5
Updated: I'd been using this a lot more recently, until the latest update made it unusable again. Cannot download issues. Cannot even look at different options to order issues, or prices, or whatever. It's a shame, because I'd just been getting into it again. It looks great, but doesn't work at all. I only added an extra star because of the layout/UI. Otherwise, I can't use it, and what's the point of an app you can't use?
Original: I used to love this app. It was clean, and more importantly, *it worked*. Now, however, I can't even search for sources - the "Publications" option is continually darkened. Unavailable. So, basically, the app is - at the moment - all but useless for anything other than the newspapers I've already purchased/downloaded. I would love to buy more; unfortunately, PressReader apparently no longer wants my money. Thanks anyway!
Best way to switch from paper to digital news! 5/5
This is my most useful app. I give it 5 stars+
Great app 5/5
The paper just the way it is on the news stand.
THe best app, my all time fav. I get the read the New York Times like a newspaper, which I've been doing for fifty years, and supplement with the online.
going downhill 3/5
By Rock hudson
I've used this for years on my ipad2. It was a great reader for the NYTimes, for which I have a digital subscription. This is a classic case of 'feature creep'. It's now become bloated and crashes about every 5 minutes. I can't get through an issue of the Times without 5-10 crashes or freezes.
When I emailed customer support, they said that they don't really support the iPad2 any more.
Too bad. It was a great product.
I use it everyday! 4/5
All publications I want to read are delivered to me in a timely manner. Easy to open pages. Also, I feel good to know that I'm saving trees! :) I still struggle how to search certain topics within my publications.
Can't hide menu 4/5
HAVING THE MENU ALWAYS VISIBLE IS NOT AN IMPROVEMENT!
When reading an article menu is always at left side so it cuts off the third column. When you swip to the right it still cuts off the same column on the left hand side. You have to hold your finger on the iPad to manually keep this column in view to read it.
This was fixed. I have changed my rating to 4 stars. (I don't like the Download page, it cuts off half the paper thumbnails)
I love Press Reader 5/5
I use it only to access the New York Times, but I love it because it allows both of us to read the first section of the paper at the same time. And it's great for traveling. I used to miss a lot when I had to rely on the NYT app.
NYTimes major problems 2/5
Version 5.1 fixed navigation at the bottom. But when an article is continued on another page voice reader and tapping on articles to read them only reads/shows what is on the first page, not the entire article.
With new update navigation at bottom usually does not have all sections, you can not tap on articles to read them, or if you can, you only get part of the article. All columns don't show if you're in reader view. The voice reader doesn't work for most articles. Please help!
Love reading my NYT especially for an educator. The features are wonderful and consumer service provide quick responses
Can't highlight 4/5
By Reading rhino
I like the app a lot except for one issue, unlike a regular magazine or even a Kindle version, you cannot highlight passages or bookmark anything.
It's better than nothing
Even when it's on a schedule to download it doesn't always happen.
Difficult to maneuver
I can't wait for improvements😀
NYTimes format ruined 1/5
As another review mentions, this menu sidebar on the left shifts over the article while reading in the column view, so half the last column is cut off. Go to swipe, and the other half of the column is off. So basically, you have to hold down the screen with your finger for the proper placement, then swipe for the next page. Please fix this in an update ASAP. Get rid of the stupid sidebar menu while reading an article!!!!!
Great App 5/5
Press Reader is the best way to read my
New York Times subscription. It has the feel of a newspaper without the ink mess.
Update to 5.0 ruins NYTimes access 1/5
By Bill from DC
The update to v 5.0 adds a menu on the left side of the iPad app which won't go away when reading a story in the NYTimes. As a result, the display is pushed to the right and cuts off half a column. Swiping toi next page cuts off that column, but from the other edge. Terrible update. Customer service non-existent. New York Times helpdesk claims -- get this! -- that they have no way to contact PressReader, so they can't help. An incredible and insulting response.
Press read 4/5
By Papa Gry
Best app for my magazines. Love it!

By Mohamed jabaly

Striving for Excellence! 4/5
I am impressed with the new developments that is making the reading experience seamless and flexible. Great improvements!!!
Excellent app 5/5
I like to have many top newspapers in a single place. Excellent app.
Terrible update 1/5
By No Mo 789
This was a great app for reading the morning paper. Now it closes ever couple pages until I just give up and go to the website of the paper. Really awful.
Excellent Update 5/5
A great app just got better. This version seems much faster and more stable. The landscape mode is excellent for magazines.
As always there is an amazing selection of newspapers and magazines from all over the world. I've used this app every day for years.
Love It 5/5
This is a great app. Newspapers and magazines from all over the world. Love It.
Helps with Study! 5/5
By Pops Pitzone
As an SGI Buddhist who chants Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, one of our daily practices is study. This app really helps with convenience,mobility, and the ability to zoom
as an aid to tired eyes when reading the World
Tribune and Living Buddhism. Thanks so much!!!
Good but could be better 2/5
Press reader has good interface when it isn't crashing? iPhone 6s with latest OS still see app crashing?
Simply works. 5/5
I use this app for my subscription to my SGI Buddhist organization's publications for "Living Buddhism"
And "The World Tribune" and love using this app on my phone and iPad to read.
By Is funning great game
A great way to read the paper.👍
Great read 5/5
A great way to read the paper! Crisp color photos and easy to move through the sections of the paper. I have used this app for 10 years and it keeps up with tech advances.
Crossword Puzzle 4/5
The only way I can print out the crossword puzzle. I like the way it automates printing the crossword puzzle so that it fills a page.
Great app - little expensive 5/5
As a newspaper reader - great app. For $30/mo would like to see the NYT, FT, WSJ. Would also like to see a bookmark to save articles.
A plus for heavy consumers of print media. 4/5
PressReader allows me to consume twice as much material.
Favorite App 5/5
This is my absolute favorite app. I read the Guardian from London everyday. What a treat!
Finally an app that replaces physical newspapers 5/5
By John f tx
While I read the Nyt on the web, I still miss stories that I find in the paper version.
Press reader shows the paper layout in enough detail that I can actually read the article.
GREAT APP. I've waited for this for years.
Too slow & not smooth 1/5
By Prince wary
Using the app is not smooth such as searching for a specific magazine or paper. The app is too slow and things are just clustered it's a mission using the app and finding desired content.
Poorly Constructed Interface 2/5
While I like reading my newspaper online, this app has some flaws that limits my use. On the main view the headlines are supposed to be a highlighted link that allows you to choose an article that opens in a different, more readable format. Unfortunately, the more readable print consistently has missing words at the end of many paragraphs. Even though I prefer that view,mI have stopped using it because it is so badly flawed. Also, the headlines are not always highlighted to give me the other option. Some days they are highlighted and some days not.
My Pubs 4/5
I use the app solely for SGI-USA publications.
The only problem I have is with printing pages from the app and it would be great if there was a function that allows you to highlight text.
Press Reader was the key in my transition from the morning print newspaper to reading my news electronically. It is so wonderful how you can devour a replica of the actual newspaper without folding and double folding the print edition. And such a wealth of news! This is the bomb.
Press reader app is excellent 5/5
I've been using the app for about three or four years. It's very easy to download the paper and once downloaded, it is very easy to navigate through the options. I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a lot on the go.
