Editors' Review


LinkedIn Pulse provides a convenient and customizable portal from which to view all the latest stories in the news and other topics that interest you. This app is geared toward the busy professional, with plenty of customization options and a streamlined interface that facilitates gathering information quickly.


Customizable feed: With this app, you can choose the types of news that show up in your feed. Pick from a long list of options like NPR, Business Insider, Green Business, Popular Science, Lifehacker, TED Talks, Mashable, and many more. And if you want to customize your reading experience further, you can create lists for different types of news sources to make it easy to find what you're looking for.

Sharing and saving: When you find an article that you like, you can share it with just a few taps in this app. Post it to your main LinkedIn feed, or share it on Facebook and Twitter in a snap. You can also save articles for later.


Abstract tiles: When you're choosing the initial sources of your feed the first time you open the app, you'll see your options in a scrolling list of tiles. While this is attractive, it's not always the most efficient way to find what you're looking for, as some of the tiles have titles and some only include images. That means it's very easy to miss something you might be very interested in because you don't recognize the image used to represent it.

Bottom Line

LinkedIn Pulse is a convenient and versatile tool that makes it easy to find the types of stories you want to read. And while you can sign in with your LinkedIn account to access sharing and some other advanced features, this isn't mandatory. In fact, you don't even have to have a LinkedIn account to use the app.

"Very, very good."

 |  Version: Pulse News for iPhone 2.6


Great thumbnail pictures of stories and selections of stories.


Doesn't give you a full customizable selection of news sources, for example non-mainstream media.


In my opinion one of the best news apps. Because of the selection of news from some of the best news sources in the world you can always keep up-to-date and busy reading.
