Pulse News Reader for iPad

Pulse News Reader – the popular app that has a new take on news reading on the iPad – has become a free app. The developers have got venture capital funding, so this should be a permanent move to free, though it may be ad-supported in future.

Now that I had it, I might as well check it out. I then proceeded to purchase NewsRack, because of good reviews I’d read about it. Now was my chance to see how which app would feed my feed addiction (get it?) in a better way. The result is quite surprising. Continue reading
