Pulse News Reader is Now Free for the iPad

by on November 15th, 2010

Reading on the iPad is pretty much a treat thanks to the large screen and the incredible apps made by developers. Think of Flipboard for example. One app that got huge praise from Steve Jobs was Pulse.

The team behind Pulse recently got an $800,000 injection of VC funding. To celebrate this, they have decided to make the app available for FREE! The rational is to get more users using Pulse. Hey, I’m all for it!

Features:
★ Dual view: For each article, you can switch between a clean text summary of the article or go to the website directly. When you tap on an article, both are ready to view, almost instantly!

★ Dashboard: With the dashboard layout, you can continue to browse stories of a news source as you read an article. Zero hierarchy!

★ Offline sync: No internet? No problem. Pulse loads the news you read, and makes it available wherever you are.

★ Smart search: No need for complicated RSS 2.0/XML/*#@ feed addresses. All you have to do is enter keywords and Pulse fetches the feed for you. You can add upto 60 sources in this version.

★ Easy share: Found an interesting article? Sharing it via email, facebook, twitter and instapaper is as easy as 2 taps.

★ Smooth transitions: Getting lost in applications as you rotate your iPad. Special care has been taken to maintain consistency between Landscape and Portrait views.

    I just downloaded it and I am so glad I read this post as I was going to buy it today!! It’s great, I LOVE it! However, it’s crashed twice already, so I hope they are planning on fixing this. Anyhow, it’s a great app!

    You’re welcome, and glad it helped!

    Try reinstalling the app and rebooting. That might work!
