PressReader

There's an app that's newly come to my attention that's free for a limited time so I thought I'd pass it along before I even get a chance to review it. PressReader allows you to download digital editions of newspapers from around the world. Right now they let you grab your first 7 editions for free. Might be interesting to some folk.

I found it a little clunky at the moment, but I think there is room to improve.
The zoomed out version of the paper I tested on was rather poor quality, and there was a noticeable delay when zooming in. All stuff that can be worked on.

The way that they have extracted the articles and linked multi-page ones is nice, the table of contents useful, but it wasn't complete on my paper.
