Press, the feed reader Android application that has quickly become a favorite of the DL staff, received a sizable update this afternoon. While the original release of the app grabbed our attention, it was still missing some pretty basic features that other feed reader applications have had for some time. Simple things like background syncing and auto-sync on app launch are just a couple. Those are now included, along with a new way to quickly navigate between articles, more detailed sharing to social networks, and new text-alignment options. 

Here is the full changelog:

  • Quick article navigation to go to next/previous articles
  • Background/automatic syncing
  • Sync on app launch
  • Background syncing notifications
  • New text-alignment options
  • Show image title and URL in the image viewer. (xkcd fans rejoice!)
  • Date and time formats now match device settings
  • Article title is now included when sharing to social networks
  • Lots of performance enhancements and bug fixes
