Pulse Is Now Alive And Kicking On Android
Back in May, we first wrote about Pulse, an innovative and pretty news reading app for the iPad created by a couple of Stanford grads. Just about a month later, it hit for the iPhone as well. Today, they’re wasting little time graduating beyond the iUniverse with the launch of Pulse for Android.
I love this app on my iPad, so I’m glad Android users are able to use this, too.
I used to say that I didn’t care what platform I was on, since I used web apps as much as possible. However, when the iPhone came along, I grew quite attached to several iOS apps, and preferred them over mobile websites, or even regular websites, since iOS devices can surf “the real Internet”. Native apps that are well-done reformat the information in a user-friendly way, and some even offer more functionality than the original website (*ahTwitterem!*). I’d certainly miss a lot of iOS-specific apps if I were to switch to an Android or webOS device, so the more cross-platform these apps become, the better. Will SkyGrid be the next news app to get ported to Android? That would be cool. 🙂
