Pulse News recently launched version 3.0 of their reader app for Android, which has a few significant changes. For one, there's no limitation on the number of pages that can saved to your Pulse account, which is great considering it was previously limited to five sections. There's a new sidebar to easily jump around these multiple content channels, as well as tweak your profile and view saved stories. There's also a new search mechanism that can haul in content from Tumblr YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, Google, Flickr, and other sources. Oh, and there's a new icon.
As always, Pulse offers their own curated, categorized library of content to subscribe to and view view them in a slick browser with scrollable rows for every site. Of course, you can always punch in RSS feeds for any kind of content you like and get a decent stream going on any of your categorized pages. They also have a web app that syncs up with your subscriptions and reading habits, if you'd rather catch up on the big screen.
Which reader apps do you use on a regular basis? It seems like the most direct competitor to Pulse is Flipboard, since they're so focused on cool design, but are there others which are of the same caliber?
