The latest update for the Press app has arrived in the Play Store today. This brings the app to v1.4 and includes a decent sized list of changes and improvements. To begin with, this update has added Fever support and offline image caching. Fever is the fourth service included in Press and is said to be filling a previously uncovered gap. The other three include Feedly, Feedbin and Feed Wrangler.

Basically, Fever brings support for self-hosted RSS. It was also said to have been one of the top feature requests for Press. Given that we suspect more than a few will be happy with this latest update. Shifting to that next feature -- offline image caching.

Users will be able to turn this one off and on by way of the settings and can also perform a manual one-time cache by long-pressing the sync icon. Other changes that have come along with this update include a "totally redesigned" Settings and a number of new preference options.

The new preferences include the ability to show titles-only in article view, show titles-only in the large widget and to disable the double-tap for Readability. Press users should also notice an improvement in the image viewer as well as some general performance improvements, sync improvements and "lots" of bug fixes.

Finally, there was also another accessibility related feature included with this update. The folks at Press have added underline links in articles which should be helpful for those who are color blind. With that, the latest version of the Press app can be found just where it would be expected -- in the Google Play Store.
