Update to version 1.5 also includes new gestures and sharing options

Press is a favorite here at AC. We value its clean interface and easy readability when we need news on the go, and it's one of the bright spots from the whole Google Readerpocalypse from 2013. And it just got a hell of an update.

Version 1.5 brings along a slew of changes. To quote the developers, it is huge. A look at the change log from Google Play.

  • Dark theme
  • All new light theme
  • Immersive mode when viewing articles (KitKat devices)
  • One-tap saving to Pocket/Instapaper (configure in Settings)
  • New gestures in article list
  • Swipe to mark as read/starred
  • Swipe and pull left/right to reveal quick actions
  • Font scaling for accessibility
  • Localization for several languages
  • Bug fixes, performance enhancements

We love the immersive mode on Kit Kat, and the easy saving to Pocket is a huge plus. We also know that plenty of people will love the dark theme, and the rest of the list.

If you're already using Press, grab the update. If you're not, it's a great time to give it a look. Hit the Google Play link above.
