Press, DashClock

On Friday James wrote an article about an update to Falcon Pro that added a DashClock extension and now Press – the Google Reader client – has begun offering this integration with DashClock as well.

As James previously mentioned, DashClock is an open-source lockscreen widget that shows unread text messages, emails, missed phone calls, and the weather, as well as supporting additional content through extensions. I have been running this on my Galaxy Nexus for a couple of days now and thought it looked great and provided me with enough information out of the box.

With the addition of a Falcon Pro extension and now a Press extension, this lockscreen widget is becoming more useful for those people that use these applications. I have been trying a few different news readers in the last couple of weeks and have just recently installed Press. It quickly became my favourite Google Reader client with a great UI that is clean and efficient. All you need to do is update Press and it will automatically appear in DashClock’s settings.

DashClock seems to be gaining a lot of momentum at the moment and I look forward to seeing how many other applications will also start adding extensions for us to place on our lockscreen.

    The app TV Show Favs just updated their app to use DashDock. That’s going to be convenient. 🙂

    Amazing how all these dev are starting to make use of this. Really good too. Needed something like this!
