Subscribers to www.pressdisplay.com can now read their favorite publications on either their computer or mobile device. Each publication has been optimized for small screens so users can read the news while online, or download titles for offline viewing either through Wi-Fi from their PC, or over the internet. Users can also install NewspaperDirect's free PressReader software on their PocketPC or SmartPhone, which allows them to read their favorite publications on their mobile phone even when there is no connection, such as in the metro or on board a plane. They can also translate articles on the fly in up to 12 different languages or listen to their favorite stories while they work or drive.
"In my work, I need to know what is happening around the world to prepare for international meetings and conference calls. I just returned from 2 weeks in Belfast, London and Nairobi where I could receive international news that is not only critical to my business, but kept me in touch with home." shared Charles Kelly, Commissioner General for the United Nations World Urban Forum 3. "Now that PressDisplay is available on mobile devices, it's become a business tool that I feel I can't live without."
In addition, users can search all 350+ publications from their mobile device for stories of interest. They can set multiple monitors and receive automatic emails on their PC or mobile device as soon as mainstream media publishes an article which mentions their keywords. With one click, they are connected to the referring story, helping them stay on top of the latest news wherever they are - often hours before the story ever hits the newsstands.
"Being immediately informed of business-critical news is a must-have feature for busy executives who need to monitor their competition, customers, the market or themselves in mainstream media," stated Alexander Kroogman, NewspaperDirect CEO. "At home, in the office or on the road, with PressDisplay.com they can be automatically alerted when important news breaks, allowing them to quickly respond to any potential opportunity or crisis."
