Pulse: News Reader App With Tiled Layout (iOS/Android)

Israel Nicolas 06-11-2011

If you’re looking for a pretty RSS reader or a news reading app in the ilk of Flipboard, then you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than Pulse. This app for iOS and Android is a newsreader on steroids that can transform any website or blog into a colorful, tiled tapestry.


With Pulse, you will immediately notice how the tiled layout allows the app to show a higher information density. Once all of your web sources are added you can just swipe up to see your news sources roll, and then swipe left or right to look for news stories within the source. This allows you to see up to 18 stories at once on your iPad compared to 3-4 stories using a similar app.

Pulse also lets you categorize your sources into tabs that you can access on the top of the tiled layout. You can “star” stories to read later, send it to Instagram, and share articles through email, Twitter, and Facebook.

Pulse is a worthy default newsreader for your iOS or Android device. While it does not have the magazine-like experience of other apps, Pulse allows you to zoom in on news from your sources in an instant.

    Lost my phone at work, and colleagues turned on findmyphone on their iphone. If you double click on the phone icon that shows location of the phone, it expands to show where the phone is inside of a 3D building. It's not 100% accurate, but brought me close enough to the phone that I could see it inside my office building.

    (Good news) someone found the phone in a bathroom where I'd left it and turned it in at the front desk.
