Pulse Feed reader is one of those Feed readers for iPad, that actually made me buy the iPad. Feed reading is part of my day-to-day activities and Pulse app offers a great visual and reading experience. Though, later on I shifted to other feed readers like zite and Flipboard on my iPad, but I often check Pulse too. Since, it’s one of the first remarkable RSS feed reader for iPad, I’m sure news of Pulse going online on web will interest other bloggers like me.
What is Pulse Feed reader?
Pulse offers a visual reading experience on your Smart phones and available for iOS and android earlier. Now to take their RSS Feed reading experience to next level, they have launched Pulse.me on web and you can now read your favorite blogs on awesome feed reader of Pulse. Right now, Pulse Web feed reader offer very minimum settings and you can add feeds either from their suggested list by clicking on add content or you can use search box to search for your favorite content. They offer 5 pages, and you can add different category of blogs in different pages.
Here is a screenshot of Pulse web:
If you are using Pulse for the first time anywhere, you can use Facebook to login and create your account. You can sync your settings from your iOS version of pulse to web by using the same login. When I logged into Pulse.me, it automatically pulled all my earlier subscribed feeds from my iPad and I don’t have to do much.
Pulse also offers different view of Feeds, which you can select from top right bar. Also, their Website is optimized for Windows 8 tablet, this means when you will be using Pulse Website on Internet explorer 10 on Windows 8 tablets, you can enjoy all swift, pinch and other touch gesture of Windows 8 tablets. Here is a video demo of Pulse running on Win8 tablets:
There is always some great feed reader extension for Chrome but having pulse awesome design, will make your feed reading experience better.
Pulse also offers many sharing options like, you can quickly share articles on Facebook, Twitter, Email it or save it for later reading. I hope in coming days they will start offering options like Send to pocket app for offline reading, more sharing options.
But for now, as a Web based feed reader, Pulse is going to be eye candy for many and with this initiative, we can expect more tablet based Feed readers to come up with an online site. Specially, when technology is simply shifting from Apps to creating website with HTML5 and tablet optimized version, missing any audience will be like missing the race to win the web.
You can try Pulse by going to Pulse.me and create an account using your Fb account. If you are using iPad, I highly recommend to go ahead and try their free feed reader on your iPad. You can download official Pulse iOS app from Apple app store here. You can also keep an eye on their latest update on official Pulse blog.
