Anyone else starting to warm to Pulse?

The news reader? I bought it for my 4 when I first got it and promptly forgot about it. It's the small screen, I guess, lately though I've been forcing myself to use it and it almost sings. It just cuts down my time tremendously. Anyone else using it, or something better?

I really love pulse, I just hate that I had to buy it twice. The iphone version should have just been a universal update to the ipad app.

Pulse is one of those apps I would have returned if I could. Too bad the app store doesn't have a 24 hr policy like the Android store. it's way too limited on number of sources. Reeder on iPad and iPhone blows it away.

Interesting, has potential, I can't say I regret buying it but at the same time, I really don't use it regularly and never as my main source of news.

Pulse is great for casual users who want to "try out" RSS feeds. But with all the limitations it has, ranging from no more than 20 feeds to the way content is delivered, it will need some major retuning to be popular among power users.

Well I know they have their critics but I use the Yahoo app every morning to read the news primarily because their stories are mostly from AP which I find relatively unbiased. I also use the NYT, USA Today, and NPR apps.

I love Pulse. We are becoming so over stimulated with information that this facilitates a mainlining of all my favourite sites.:D
