RBdigital App Reader

RBdigital has launched a new app reader for magazines. This new reader will enhance your experience through improved ease-of-use and readability.

Take a look at these new features!

New look and feel

A fresh new look and feel makes it easier to navigate the app. For instance, now you can access the content menu from the navigation bar.


We're really excited about the new text-to-speech function! Now you can listen to articles in audio format on your Apple devices.

New colour themes

Besides to the current light and dark themes, the new reader lets you select sepia and grey tones. Having a range of colour options increases readability and reduces eye fatigue.

More colour options means more reading!

Scalable font and screen brightness controls

In the new reader, you'll also find sliders that let you adjust the font size and screen brightness right from the app.
