NewspaperDirect Introduces PressReader 3 for iPad

NewspaperDirect introduced new PressReader 3 for iPad, which debuts SmartFlow newspaper presentation technology. PressReader 3.0 takes advantage of the power of the iPad2 running iOS5 to deliver a smooth and natural browsing and reading experience. With PressReader 3.0, users can now choose to read their favorite publications using SmartFlow, a horizontal news-reading feature that is exclusive to PressReader.

SmartFlow complements the traditional replica newspaper presentation with an ability to view articles as a continuous stream of stories that flow across the iPad, each optimally presented on the screen. With SmartFlow, users can journey through a collection of articles with visual cues that enhance their reading experience and reveal new gems of content they might otherwise miss. SmartFlow presents subscribers all the content of their favorite printed editions in a fluid stream of articles, where different sized images, fonts, styles and layouts provide insights into the importance of stories so readers can make more informed decisions on what they want to read.

With SmartFlow there is no need to jump to a new page where an article continues in the replica view. Instead, users just click on the “continue link” at the bottom of the snippet to expand to the full story right where they are located in the content flow. SmartFlow adjusts the rest of the stream immediately, making the reading experience more fluid and enjoyable.

SmartFlow is also directly connected with the Page View of the newspaper, allowing users to switch back to the original view of the page to see the article in context with neighboring stories and advertisements.
