PressReader 6.5

Read the latest news stories and various types of magazines.

PressReader is a program that helps you keep track of the latest news. With its help, you can download the digital versions of your favorite magazines and read their contents whenever you like, even while your computer is not connected to the Internet.

The utility brings you a straightforward interface, features an efficient search tool, and enables you to mark your favorite newspapers and magazines. The first thing you need to do is to create a personal account on the homepage of the developer. Then, you can use the credentials to log into your account in the PressReader tool.

You can use the built-in search tool to immediately find the magazine you wish to download and read. Once the download process is complete, the magazine issue will be added to your library.

The only problem I have with this program is the fact that it doesn't run too smoothly. To be more exact, it might take a while to launch and occasionally runs slow, especially when opening digital magazine for reading.

Still, the utility comes without a price tag and might prove to be of good use if you're the type of Mac user who wants to constantly read newspapers and other types of magazines. I'd say it's worth giving it a shot, it might work properly on your computer.
