Editors' Review


Pulse News Mini gives you all the news from your favorite Web sites laid out in an intuitive interface. News sites are laid out vertically so you can swipe up and down to the latest news from all sites quickly, or you can swipe horizontally to read more stories from the same site. Each story heading has the headline and an included graphic, making for a more elegant approach than other news readers that show only text links. Touching a story heading gives you either a text-based summary, a mobile-optimized version for easy reading, or a way to view the story on the Web, depending on the news provider. The app comes with several popular Web sites you can add to your Pulse home screen or you can use the search function to find feeds from your favorite sites.

Pulse is not the first iPhone app that helps you collect news feeds, but the layout of this app is especially intuitive, making it easy for people unfamiliar with newsreaders to get started quickly. Your Pulse home screen is completely customizable so you can reorder your feed list to show your most-read sites first. If you've spent some time reading through stories and want something new, you can always hit the refresh button at the top of the interface to see if new stories have been posted while you were reading. Overall, if you want a slick and elegant way to quickly read news stories from all your favorite Web sites, Pulse News Mini takes only a little bit of setup to have the latest headlines laid out for you when you launch. For big-screen news reading, grab Pulse News Reader for iPad.

"Very, very good."

December 29, 2011  |  By daviddaly5

 |  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.
