Press is — unarguably — the best RSS client available for Android devices. The app supports nearly all the Google Reader replacements out there including Feedly, Feed Wrangler, Feedbin and Fever. Today, the app has received a huge update to v1.5 that brings with it a lot of goodies like Immersive mode, new gestures, and a black theme.

The inclusion of Immersive mode will be appreciated by all Nexus owners, as it allows for a better and a much more “immersive” reading experience and makes full use of the limited real-screen estate on a mobile device.

The developers have also added new gestures that allows for quickly saving an article to Pocket, or mark the articles above or below it as read.

Below is the full change-log of the update -:

It’s a huge update, with lots of goodies:

– 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
If you have not already, I strongly recommend you to check out Press.
