CONS:

(1) I have a low-end smartphone with limited memory, so I want that memory dedicated to the apps that I am actively using. Having multiple apps running in the background increases my risk of running out of memory and being put in a forced close situation. Once you start "pulse", it runs perpetually in the background updating your feeds. But I don't want this. What I want is for the app to update my feeds when I start it, and then when I'm done reading my feeds, I want to be able to really quit the app.

(2) You can't customize the font size of the articles - an important feature for those of us in the bifocal set. I can understand that the font has to be a set size in the overview of all the articles in a folder, but when I select an article so I'm just reading that one, I can't see any reason for not letting me set the font size.

(3) Similar to the FlipBook on the iPad, it seems that there is no personal record of which articles I've already read. It always shows the most recent articles. If you are way behind in a feed, you can't access your older, unread items. On the other hand if you'd like to mark even more recent articles "read" so they'll disappear from your reader, this isn't the best choice of apps.

PROS:

The actual user interface is attractive and intuitive, at least after you have your feeds set up. I suspect it is even more slick to use on a tablet than on a phone which is where I'm using it.

ALTERNATE RSS READER

I ended up going with "Feedly" because it does allow the user to really quit the app, customize the font size, and mark articles as "read". I don't think it is as pretty as "pulse", but this functionality is more important to me than prettiness.

Its a really pretty app. All of my RSS feeds are in one, clean space that I can quickly check on the go. it does download pictures though, so set your refresh rate accordingly with your data plan.

Pulse started out as a very attractive and easy to use news aggregator. Somewhere along the way, it lost its ease of use and became a bloated, difficult to use application. Its constant need to update itself, its bloated memory usage, and its unnecessary features have turned it into a must-avoid application.

The program's poor memory management is one of those faults that the average user will not understand, but they will experience the frustrations caused by it as their device slows down...more and more and more over time. The push to social network integration awhile ago rendered the program much less useful - it used to be my go-to app for getting my daily news. But as the "Share on Facebook" and "Tweet This" buttons began pushing themselves on to my news scan more and more, the less I used the program. I have since abandoned it and would suggest that if you haven't already installed it, don't. If you have installed it, uninstall (if you can - oh, did I mention that nifty little "feature"? - on some devices you cannot uninstall it; one more failure for this app).

This is one of my favorites for my Android Tablet. Great integration with other sharing apps, and very good interface

This app comes pre installed on the kindle fire. the only "bloat" amazon put on the fire. It is not removable, and you can not turn it off. It syncs with the pulse team sending them personal information (who and what) at least every 12 hours, with no option to turn it off. 1 star for that, sorry pulse, but you need to have an option to not send personal info back to yourself, and the only 1 star feature for the kindle fire.

oh, and maybe because they know people don't like being forced to have something they do not want, pulse is not shown in the kindle fire app store, so you can't leave this review from your kindle :-)

This attractive but frustrating app crashes often. In addition, the recent issue is that it puts me in a loop that no matter which story I select it will only display one of the two most recent stores I've read. I suppose that's fine as long as you only want to read one or two stories.

I love the way pulse is set up, and I've used their website for quite a while, so when I got my fire I thought I'd just use the app instead.

Unfortunately, their app for the Fire is incredibly unreliable - it crashes at least a couple of times a day, and I have to restart it and try to re-find the article that I was reading. It's a bit annoying, to say the least.

I enjoy this app more than anything else I have on my Kindle Fire. Such a great format and very easy to customize.
