There's some jokes to be made about the desire to read newspapers on your smartphone but there's no shortage of folks out there who do it, myself included. On BlackBerry 10, PressReader is the go-to app for that and a new update rolling through BlackBerry World aims to improve that experience. The latest update gets noted as v2.2.1409.8 and brings plenty of bug fixes and improvements to the app on the whole.

  • New Viewer (improved user experience while swiping and zooming pages)
  • PDF rendering support
  • Ability to change font size in Text View
  • Favorites support (My Publications)
  • SmartZoom (zoom to article top-left by double-click)
  • Expunge support
  • Bug fixes

The update is live in BlackBerry World right now, so most folks should be seeing it as available. If you've never given PressReader a go, it's pretty decent and offers 7 free trial issues from over 2,300 full content newspapers in over 100 countries when you download it. Something to keep in mind if you miss the next BlackBerry ad in the 'newspaper'.
