Pressreader crashing ever since Mac OSX Mojave Update

Ever since I accepted Apple's Mojave operating system update the Pressreader App (obtained from their Appstore) has been crashing frequently. It is only just useable! On my wife's Mac things are even worse. The App opens for an instant and always then crashes. So it is unuseable on that computer!

Can the App please be made compatible with Mojave because my newspaper subscriptions are being wasted? Thanks.

Many thanks for the response. I hope your developers can solve the problem soon.

Could you please explain what you mean by: "In the meantime, please access directly at www.PressReader.com"? What I need is a stable version of Pressreader for Mac so I can read my papers off line and I cannot find that at the web address you mention.

Tks

Hi Paul

We were hoping that you would access your subscription by logging directly at www.PressReader.com for the moment (online) rather than using the application to download. Hoping to resolve this soon.

Many thanks for the suggestion to read my papers on your website, but I travel a lot and that's when I do most of my reading. So I am very dependent on the offline version. I hope your developers can soon make it compatible again with the latest Mac operating system, tks. Paul

Hi,

still no update to the PressReader app (version 6.5) for Mac OSX. It is unusable under 10.14 Mojave, and has no chance of working when I update to 10.15 Catalina as it is currently a 32-bit app. Any news on when the updated 64-bit version will be available? Thanks.

Hi Richard,

Sorry, we will not be updating the Mac PressReader, at least for the moment anyways. We are aware that it won't work with latest OS Catalina unfortunately. We hope that you can use PressReader app on mobile devices for the time being, until a decision is made with the future of Mac PressReader.

Thanks,

PressReader Care
