NewspaperDirect Launches PressReader for Smartphones

NewspaperDirect, Inc., a provider of multichannel newspaper and magazine content distribution and monetization, has launched iPhone and BlackBerry versions of its PressReader application.

The move significantly expands the audience of full-content newspapers and magazines for NewspaperDirect's publishing partners, and it lets millions of owners of the two most popular smartphones download their favorite daily read from a selection of more than 1,300 newspapers and magazines available on, an online newspaper kiosk. The new PressReader applications are free and available for immediate download from Apple's iTunes App Store [] and RIM's BlackBerry App World [].

PressReader lets users view offline the hundreds of publications available on, in a convenient, portable format. PressReader presents publications as full-content digital replicas in their original layout. Every article, advertisement, crossword puzzle, and cartoon is presented in its original context in the paper; users have the ability to instantly zoom in on any element. PressReader offers rich-graphics or text-only viewing options, an interactive table of contents, cross-title searching, sharing of articles, and live, clickable elements such as URLs, telephone numbers, email addresses, and hyperlinks to other articles.
