Reading and Listening:
Here are the applications we discussed for Reading books and magazines:
Press Reader: An interface for various newspapers and magazines. Has some free content, but also many magazines and newspapers are available through Press Reader with a subscription. The international selection is impressive, and you often can get several articles for free each month. If you have a subscription, you can access several magazines through this interface.
Feedly: This application brings together articles and videos on particular topics or geography.
Readly: This application allows you to read magazines in a single app.
Flipboard: This app allows you to select geography or topics of interest and then you get a wide range of news sources from those selections.
Next week we will look at these apps on different devices and talk about apps for podcasts.
