App Happy: Pulse

Imagine being able to browse all your favorite news sources in one central location. Well, guess what? There’s an app for that. Pulse is a free app for Android-based phones, which allows users to select from a wide variety of categories, such as: News & Analysis, Entertainment, Technology, Business, Food, Fashion, and much, much more! For less serious moments, there are some lighthearted categories, which include: Cute Overload, someecards, Dilbert Daily Strip, and Fail Blog (all great for a good laugh). Conveniently, each category features a “top stories” source, which allows you to view the most popular stories from that category.

After you’ve picked all your favorite sources, Pulse organizes them into neat rows (each row is dedicated to a different source), which are very easy to scroll through. After clicking on a story, you’re then brought to an easy-to-read article with the option to navigate to the original article. You also have the ability to arrange your sources in whatever order you like.

Some of my personal favorite sources include: Mashable, MTV News, Gawker, Android Central, and someecards.

With over 18,000 ratings in the Android Market, this informative app has received 4.5/5 stars. I’ve been using it for a couple days now, and I’d give it 4.5/5 stars as well. Pulse is definitely an app you want to check out if you like staying up-to-date on the world around you (and have some fun while doing it).
