Pulse has pushed out an updated version of its apps for Android and iOS bringing new social features to Pulse News Reader. Pulse lets you view news from a number of web sites in an attractive wall of news format with headlines and images pulled from the web pages. You can then click on any article to view a stripped down version formatted for your device, or click a “web” button to see the full story.
The latest version lets you add up to 60 news sources to your account. Earlier versions topped out at 20. Despite the extra stories and images to load, the new version of Pulse is actually faster.
The other big change is the addition of a Social section, allowing you to view the latest updates from your Facebook contacts as well as top stories, images, and other content from social sites including Flickr, Reddit, Digg, and pcplz. You can also share any item you’re reading with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
Pulse News reader is available as a free download from the [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pulse-news-mini/id377594176?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”iTunes App Store” text=”iTunes App Store”] and Android Market.
