You can buy Press for $1.99 from Google Play store. The app does not feature any ads, syncs with Google Reader and allows you quick article navigation. The app also has offline reading support, simple swipe navigation, and enable image zooming.

Press also allows its users to change reading font style and size, article text alignment, share the articles you read, and open articles in the app or your default browser.

"Press is a Google Reader app that is all about the reading experience. It has been designed with the purpose of making your news easier to read. Quickly move from screen to screen and effortlessly manage the articles you want and the ones you don't," notes the app description on Google Play Store.

If you have used Press previously, you may have encountered issues with speed and responsiveness; however, the update claims to enhance performance and fix various bugs.

"I have to admit, I'm pleasantly surprised by the first release of Press. This application can only get better with time and I highly recommend the purchase. I would like to hear what our users think about it in the comments. I'm eager to see if the general consensus with Press is that it's well baked, but missing that one killer feature to make it a great application and a must for any Android user," notes a recent review of the app on RootsWiki.

Press is compatible on devices running on Android 4.0 or above. Existing users can update by visiting the "My Apps" section in the Google Play store app.
