Press, our favorite feed reader application on Android, received an update today to add extension support for the hottest app on the block right now, DashClock. This new extension will show you unread counts for articles, as long as you have it set to sync automatically in the background. Otherwise, it’ll just show a “0” until you manually refresh it.
In order to use this new extension, you’ll need Press and DashClock. With both installed, add DashClock to one of your lockscreens, press the “Add Another Extension” button, and then choose “Press.”
If you are a big feed or Google reader user, you should really check out Press even with its $2.99 price tag.

Earlier in the week, we first reported on a new app from Android Engineer Roman Nurik called DashClock. Since that report, it seems to have taken the Android app world by storm, prompting all sorts of praise and a hope for future compatibility from other top apps. In case you missed the mention in that article, an API for the app is available for other developers to use to build out “extensions” from their apps that can be used in DashClock.
Today, one of the first major apps to build out such support is Falcon Pro. In today’s update to the popular Twitter app, an extension for DashClock was included. As you can see in the image above, the extension shows you an unread Tweet count that when tapped, opens up Falcon Pro. (more…)

It’s called DashClock, and is a lock screen widget that can display a number of important items as you wake your phone, while still maintaining the simple Android 4.2 look and feel. Since it’s a lock screen widget, it only works on devices running Android 4.2+, which means only Nexus devices or those running the latest custom ROMS. (more…)
