PressReader: Mobile Interface

Access to more than 6,000 newspapers and magazine worldwide

Using Mobile App

To use the PressReader mobile app, a user must authenticate within the library and create a personal login. (Exception:  if the library allows authentication via a library card number).

When downloading the PressReader app, a user will then login using his/her personal account information.  The mobile app experience is always more personalized than the web version due to no choice in being logged in to a personal account or not.

Legend for PressReader Mobile Interface

  1. Because mobile device use requires an individual account, your Channel (and image if set up) will show here. 
  2. The PressReader icon in the middle of the screen will reveal a drop down menu of choices for interacting with the Home Feed such as customizing the top stories, adding different sections—such as business or sports, showing your Topics, and more. 
  3. The search box provides many options for searching content within PressReader:  by tag, opinion, channel, and general keyword. 
  4. The three vertical dots in the upper right corner provide Font size and type customization, Translate options, and the Listen feature.

    NOTE:  the options here will greatly change when in a particular article to include a Table of Contents for the publication, printing options, and other settings (such as zoom, highlighting, text-to-speech enabling, and more)
  5. The grid of dots offers a set of choices for interacting with the article such as switching to Page View, Listening, Translating, and Printing.  Other options are available when a user is logged into a personal account (Save to Collection, Comment, and Share).
  1. The green arrow at the bottom corner of article  will expand the article to reveal the entire text.
  2. This column of menu choices on the left will allow the user to look at the publication list, view their downloads (everything on a mobile device must be downloaded to be fully read), see their settings, and more.

    NOTE:  if viewing in horizontal (landscape) view, the choices may be collapsed and have a "more" option.
