Editors' Review

LinkedIn Pulse offers a streamlined UI and smooth reading experience that make it one of the mobile world's favorite news reading apps, but you will need to create a LinkedIn account in order to save and share articles and comment on them.

Pros

Looks and feels fantastic: LinkedIn Pulse sports an elegant interface that features gorgeous icons and responds to intuitive swiping and scrolling controls. News is categorized by channels, under which you'll find hot headlines displayed as attractive image thumbnails that you can effortlessly swipe through.

Highly customizable: You can select every channel and news source you want to follow, change the reading window background color to dark or light, increase or decrease the font size, and, through Settings, change content refreshing options such as background refresh frequency or Wi-Fi refreshing only, so that the app won't burden your connection.

Integrated channels: This app makes it easy for you to discover the best content sources for every topic imaginable from politics to gaming by featuring integrated channels that you can easily follow with a tap.

Cons

Forces LinkedIn log-in: You can read content without a LinkedIn account, but in order to enjoy some of the app's most useful features, like saving favorites, sharing interesting articles, commenting, or syncing sources across devices, you need to register. With this version you can't log in with your former Pulse ID, nor access your past sources and personal settings; your old data is basically gone.

Imageless thumbnails: While most news items on the home page feature an image, some don't, either because the original article lacks one, or the app fails to load it -- the empty thumbnails spoil an otherwise colorful interface.

Bottom Line

LinkedIn Pulse continues to provide an excellent interface for digesting news and other content from any source on the Web, whether you're at home or on the go, on a tablet or a smartphone. However, this version's requirement for a LinkedIn account may not be to everyone's liking.
