Press, one of our favourite Google Reader apps, has been updated to include support for our favourite lockscreen widget app, DashClock.
The latter is being developed by a Google employee, Roman Nurik, as a side project, and replaces the stock Android 4.2 Jelly Bean lockscreen clock with something a bit more versatile. The app is extensible, and developers like the two-man team behind press can add support for DashClock by adding a bit of code. By default it allows you to see missed calls, weather, text messages and upcoming calendar appointments. The free lockscreen clock replacement has amassed over 50,000 downloads since its release last week, and it is only compatible with Android 4.2+ devices.
Press, like Falcon Pro before it, adds an unread articles count and allows users to quickly jump into the app.
The new version of Press also fixes a number of bugs from the last version. The team says it is working on a bit feature update for 1.2, which is said to be coming in a few weeks.
