Pulse News Reader price dropped to $1.99

As the title says, Pulse News Reader for iPad is now $1.99.

Should I grab it?

I have Pulse on my iPhone, which is basically the same, and I love it.

It saves me from having multiple apps installed to read news or whatnot.

Well, I bite the bullet and bought it.

And to be frank, I'm not a big fan of the app. Scrolling doesn't feel quite right, and the embedded web browser is horrible. This is a workaround for now, but once 4.2 comes along, those crappy embedded browsers needs to go.

I've used Twitter for a similar purpose, and thought RSS would be a better way to keep up with news. But I actually preferred Twitter to Pulse.

At least it was only $1.99. I'll probably try Reeder or River of News.

The app feels much slower now that it has been updated.
