On Thursday, Nov. 8, Pulse, the news reading application for iOS and Android devices announced its latest version 3.0, which will provide new features along with a more user-friendly interface.
"When you tap those mesmerizing blue rings for the first time, you're taken to a whole new world: Pulse 3.0. Our redesigned app is invigorated, alive, bolder and better than ever before. With heaps of fresh features and a sleek new design, this next step in news reading will rock your world," states the official Pulse blog.
The new features are some of the most requested items from the user base of Pulse. The search feature within the updated version of Pulse now allows searching for Google, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Reddit, and Blekko.
Users can now rename and re-order pages within the sidebar. The updated version also brings the sidebar in from the left, which is very similar to the Facebook app, and displays all the pages which when tapped display their feeds. Additionally, infinite scrolling has been added to the updated version which means there is no end to a source's stream.
"You can finally find that story from three months ago-thanks to infinite scrolling, your sources keep going and going and going..." stated the official Pulse blog post.
Pulse 3.0 also has a redesigned widget which displays a user's top story page in a resizable view. The update also has improved notifications which send a user's best story to the notification center. A user can also change the setting with which the update is sent every hour, three hours, six hours, or daily.
The Google Play Store describes Pulse 3.0 as "a beautiful application that makes reading news fun and engaging. Pulse News is a beautiful app that takes your favorite websites and transforms them into a colorful and interactive mosaic."
