Metro Reader will help you download and manage the published daily news from Metro so that you can download the news paper as PDF when you have access to a fast and cheap internet connection and then read the paper offline.

This free DEMO version will have one day delay on the news papers (i.e. you can only read yesterdays news). The pro version has no such delay.

Metro is a free newspaper read by more than 17 million people around the world each day. Most people will probably find it easiest to read the actual paper edition but if you don't have one of their paper stands on your way to work or if you want to read the news paper from another city or country then this app will help you get get hold of your very own edition anyway.
This is not an official metro app but all news papers handled by this app is published by and downloaded from metros official archive. The archive is publicly available and open for anyone do freely download from. The downloaded news papers can be large so if you don't have a good price agreement for mobile connection you should try updating your news paper while connected to a Wifi network.
There is most likely room for some improvements in the app so please get in touch if you have any suggestions, questions or complaints (metroreader (at)

The original Metro reader app was suspended by the Google Play team because the app description contained keywords. They gave me no warning and I got no chance to remove the keywords. Therefore, the app is no released again as a new app without the keywords in the description. This means that if you have the old version installed, you will have to install the new version to get any future updates. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, but it is unfortunately out of my control.

    I like the idea, but when done down-loading offline content, the app seems to hang. I run pure android on lexus 2013.
