Press Reader

For today’s Tuesday Tweak, we’re focusing our attention on a very flexible RSS reader app called Press. It can be scaled-down to a widget and fixed on either a handsets home or lock screen. Press provides its users with the tools they need to read and save news from all their favourites sources, which they can then share on multiple social media profiles, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.


The HTC One M8 is by far the prettiest Android-powered smartphone money can buy. Its sleek aluminum form factor makes its plastic-packing rivals look even tackier, and it’s one of the few phones I can think of that actually feels like it is worth its premium price tag. The only handset that comes close in terms of design is its predecessor, the original One (M7).

So, how do you make it even prettier? Paint it pink, of course. And that’s exactly what HTC plans to do with its latest flagship.


A Samsung press event scheduled for April 29 could deliver the first official unveiling of the new Galaxy S5 Zoom. The South Korean company’s invite, which features the tagline “Kapture the Moment,” suggests a photography-focused event just weeks after a new Galaxy Zoom smartphone was pictured out in the wild.


Motorola has today begun issuing invitations to a January 14 press event in London. “Join us on the next step of Motorola’s journey,” the invite reads, ”as we welcome a new addition to the European Motorola family of products.”
