Press 1.3

The past few months have been a whirlwind of chaos and opportunity in the world of RSS. Since Google announced that Reader would be shutting down on July 1st, there has been a scramble to define the future of RSS. A lot has happened, even for the two of us here at TwentyFive Squares. Through a lot of ups and downs, we are genuinely excited about the future of RSS and Press.

With version 1.3, Press is turning over two proverbial new leaves. The first major change is that Press will be supporting two new services, Feed Wrangler and Feedbin. We have been in communication with both David Smith (Feed Wrangler) and Ben Ubois (Feedbin) for a while now and feel that they are each invested in building something that will last. We’re extremely excited to work with them and offer their great services through Press!

The second major change is that the phone interface has been rethought and redesigned. Our goal from the beginning has been to continually improve and refine Press. Sometimes that means a new coat of paint. Sometimes that means you tear off a wing of the house and rebuild it. In version 1.3, we did both! We’ve listened to a lot of feedback and we think this new workflow is both simpler and more efficient.

We’re excited about this update and see it as a springboard for the direction of Press. There is still more to come, but if you will excuse us, we still have a lot of work to do :)
