That said, I made a promise in my original post referencing this release. “If this isn’t offered as a universal app, I’m going to have a huge problem.” Well, I have a huge problem.
I’ll still give the app some press here, by talking up the included features:
- Dashboard: With the dashboard layout, you can continue to browse stories as you read an article
- Smart Search: Merely enter keywords or source names and Pulse finds the appropriate feed URL
- Offline Sync: Pulse loads your feeds for times when you don’t have internet access (OK – that’s kinda cool)
- Easy Sharing: The typical suspects here; Facebook, Twitter and the new offline standard, in my book – Instapaper
- Rapid Refresh of content
I’m sorry Alphonso Labs – I just can’t see paying again for an app that I own already on my iPad? Is the a good reason, outside of a cash grab, behind this decision?
If, by chance, you readers do want to get this app, which actually does look slick and if it meets the user experience levels of the iPad version, it could be nice – head over to the App Store here and give ’em your $2.99.
