I have been using a smart phone for a year now and I liked how it made my life easier and less boring. Although I the battery drains very fast especially if your data connection is turned on electricity is accessible so charging is easy. I just hope my battery will not explode from too much charging.
Today I am reviewing a mobile application that will wow readers. Or at least someone like me who loves to read. I am talking about Press Reader.

*Smart Flow can be enabled or disabled in PressReader’s Setting menu (By default, Smart Flow will either be turned on or off depending on screen resolution. Smart Flow is not available on Gingerbread operated devices).
When I installed it the main page showed local broadsheets and tabloid.
For English broadsheets the on demand audio is working. This is very good if you are on the road as reading in gadgets while in motion is not a good idea. I like that I will learn about the right pronunciation. It’s like I am listening to CNN but the news are all local.
As for Tagalog/Filipino tabloids the audio is not available. Since my screen is small I really cannot enjoy reading without zooming it. If you have at least 3” above screens this very suitable.
You need to download the newspaper first before you can navigate it. The selection refreshes everyday. Once you have downloaded your chosen newspaper you can do back reads even without internet connection.
You can also check out other countries newspaper too.
This will be very educational for everyone.
If you want to read all the papers for today you have to download everything.
This requires registration and/or fee in the future. The trial account is good for three months only.
If you are someone whose work is related to various newspaper or you will spend dimes for your hobby, I will recommend this app.
This is sometimes pre-installed in your devices unlike for my Android GingerBread it is not.
Has anyone downloaded or have it pre installed in their devices?
I am very curious to know.
