The Pulse App is by far one of my favorite news Apps. Pulse offers a wide variety of news sources with a slick and stylish design, and provides full integration with social networks. It also gives the ability to save and share articles with the aid of other Apps on your device.
In the evenings while relaxing and watching TV I like to grab my Android phone and go directly to the Pulse App to check on the latest news that took place throughout the day. When I am scanning my news feed and find great and interesting articles that I want to share, I can simply share with just a couple of taps. Articles can be shared instantly with my Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts. Pulse App can also be used in conjunction with other Apps on your device, such as : HootSuite, Evernote, LinkedIn, Instapaper. I tend to use Pulse with Hootsuite (past blog review) because this gives me the ability to schedule the post to send out later on my Twitter account.
Full breakdown of Pulse App features
- News Sources: It’s easy to find most of your favorites news sources either by searching for them or by scanning all of the different source categories. Be sure to check out the “What’s New This Week” category because Pulse is always adding more to its collection.
- Article view: When you are reading each article on the Pulse App, you can either read the article in a clean summed up version, or you can go directly to the website where the article was posted.
- Content: You can add all your content in one place. It loads the content you read and makes it available to read anytime because of offline syncing. It saves articles you read with your Pulse.me account by sending it to Evernote, Instapaper, Read it Later, or Google Reader.
- Social Feeds: You can add any of your social feeds to your Pulse content, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader (directly import all of your RSS feeds), Reddit, and many other social media sites.
