A news reader that definitely isn't flatlining
by on January 21, 2011
Reading RSS feeds on your phone has become a whole lot easier recently, with the introduction of the official Google Reader app for Android. But what Reader doesn’t bring is, well, sex appeal – it’s as plain Jane as a Loose Woman sans makeup.
Pulse on the other hand is Google Reader slathered in Sex Panther and injected with the libido of Hugh Hefner. It’s an app that begs you to cheat on Google, offering a quick way to import of Google Reader RSS feeds.
It teases you into submission by showing off your favourite websites in such a coherent way. Once you import your feeds, they appear in rows. In each row is a thumbnail story that you can click and get a nicely reformatted page of the article.
It works brilliantly and makes reading on your Android device that little bit sweeter.
If you don’t have Google Reader RSS feeds, you can also Bump to get other feeds across or choose from the plentiful feeds on offer through the app. Be warned: most of what is on offer is US based so this may put you off taking from this archive.
Lucky then there is a decent search option to find the websites you want to add.
Pulse is one of the best looking and easiest news reading apps to use on the Android Market – you’ll wonder how you lived without it for so long.
