Pulse Application Gets Updated, Gets Facebook, Flickr, YouTube Integration
Pulse is a pretty famous Android app I’ve seen preinstalled on several devices I’ve tested. It’s actually called Pulse New and it’s a very intuitive and cute looking app that access your favourite websites and shows them like a colourful/interactive mosaic. Up until now it supported syncing with Instapaper, Read it Later and Evernote.
Version 3.0.6 of the application brings Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube integration. The update brings the usual bug fixes, performance improvements and also enhancements to the photo and video viewing. The latter improvement is all about the social network integration with Flickr and YouTube, obviously. They can easily be viewed and clutter is easily avoided. Pulse News launched 2 years ago and its purpose was the get rid of the hassle that people had when trying to view their favourite news websites.
Now the trends have changed and people tend to alternate reading news with social networking, so integrating both into the app was a must. The Pulse app is available for free and it requires devices supporting Android 2.2 or later. You can easily add content from sources like Time Magazine of Huffington Post with a bunch of taps on the screen and you’re all set. There’s also an offline sync feature for offline reading. You can get the app from here.
