Use PressDisplay to read from 39 languages or study the news from over 80 countries. A dynamic opening page displays a crawling header of the newspapers...click on any of them to read, or use the "Select" icon at the top to choose a title by name, country, or language.
Choose a paper and when it opens to a full-page view, chose the "View all thumbnails" to scan the entire paper for items/images of interest. Or, just click the corners & turn the pages so you can read the news or do the crossword puzzles.
