Pulse News is an app that is in Apple’s App Hall of Fame, and was even endorsed by Steve Jobs at WWDC as “a wonderful RSS reader”. The team behind Pulse, Alphonso Labs, recently told the New York Times that they just got $800,000 worth of VC funding.
This new found wealth has resulted in them giving away Pulse News app for iPhone/iPad for free. The hope is to draw more users and help them grow their business. Here are the features of Pulse:
