Once upon a time newspapers were respected as the absolute, unquestionable pillars of solid fact that they were. Dependable, black and white, inky slabs of current affairs, the cult of celebrity interested them not, nor the concept of bingo, nor what your phone messages were, just the news. That was, of course, a very long time ago and things since then have gone somewhat awry with red-headed hackers running the red tops, but even in the digital age people still rely on their favoured rags to keep them abreast of events, be they from all around the world or simply from some hateful house full of idiots on Channel 5.
However, sometimes it’s not possible to get hold of the News of the Mail or the Daily Times when on the go or, worse still, when abroad. So what does the fact-hungry do in such a situation? Simple, pick up your Android phone or tab and open up the newest newspaper-source app on the Google block: PressReader.
