“Press” is a beautiful new RSS reader that syncs with your Google Reader account

If you’re looking for a beautiful RSS reader that syncs to your Google Reader account, look no further. “Press” is a gorgeous new app released by TwentyFive Squares that features a heavy emphasis on good design and simplicity. The app was built using Android’s new design philosophy so it already looks natural on your Android phone or tablet, but TwentyFive Squares took the design language a step further and added some nice textures, shadows, icons and typography to really push the app over-the-top when it comes to great design. Press is simple and easy to use and utilizes the two panel navigation that has become so popular with Android apps as of late. Articles look great and you can change the article layout and font if you so choose. The only flaw in the app is that once you are reading an article, there is no easy way to navigate to the next (via swipe gesture or otherwise), so you have to back out to the main menu. The developer has acknowledged this issue and is working on a solution. There is also no widget in the current release, but we’re sure that will be addressed soon as well. The app is $1.99 in the Google Play store for a limited time. Hit the break to see a video, screenshot gallery, and QR code to get the app.

    Funny how I came across this article while using Feedly. I’ll check it out though. I have a few complaints about Feedly in that it doesn’t really have an infinite scroll kind of capability. I’m constantly having to hit the refresh button to get through all the items in a given day.

      I also like Feedly and Pulse.

        One thing that the authors of this app should take note of is that the name “Press” isn’t doing them any favors. Just trying searching for “Press” in the Play store and you’ll see what I mean.

          Ya. I noticed that too. I think it might be because they just released it so Google’s algorithms will need to start noticing it as a popular app. Click our Play Store Download Link at the bottom of the article if you want to go directly to the app’s page in the play store.

            Your Play Store Download Link is not working, it takes you to a picture of the QR code.

              Weird. Thanks for letting us know. It should be fixed now. Refresh the page and try again.

    Funny, articles about RSS readers rarely mention Feedly. Anyway, this app is new and not free. Feedly has been around for a while and is polished and free.

      I mention feedly in my ‘best looking apps for your new Android device’ article. It’s a featured article on our front page right now. We try to give all good apps some love.
