Meet Press, a slick new app for keeping up with your RSS subscriptions on your Android device. It syncs to your Google Reader account and presents all of your articles in a well designed package, with an attractive typeface and dead simple navigation.

Perhaps the best thing about Press is its interface. The open layout and six different font choices make it a pleasure to look at. And just like Google Reader it’s really easy to navigate.

Once you sync Press to your Google Reader account, the app opens up to a list of all your folders with the number of unread items in each. On tablets, this list appears on the left side of a two-panel layout, while on phones it takes up its own screen. Go into a folder, and you’ll see all of the news sources contained within. Go one step deeper, and you’ll be able to swipe between individual articles. If you’ve used any other RSS reader app before, then Press should be just as easy if not easier to use.
