Pulse heading to Windows Phone [Update--now available]

As far as RSS readers go, Pulse set the standard a few years ago by releasing their award-winning app for the iPad. Since then, the app has gone to the iPhone and Android as well, bringing it's unique and stunning UI along the way.

Today, Pulse has announced that they have developed a version of their news aggregating application for Windows Phone.  The Pulse app lets readers track their favorite news sites by displaying them in a mosaic that updates as content changes.  The WP7 will take this even further, utilizing live tiles, to bring new content to your home screen.  Users can list up to 20 sites from Pulse's 200+ content partners, as well as other sites of their choosing. Of note, this is just the first step in bringing Pulse to Windows Phone, so users should expect more features and a richer client with future updates.

Pulse also allows makes for easy sharing, via Twitter, Facebook and email buttons.  Content can also be texted to users' contacts.

Pulse has been submitted for certification to the Marketplace and it is expected to be available any day now.  We do know that Pulse will be a free app and once a Marketplace link becomes available, we'll update the post.  In the meantime, check out a video demonstration after the break. 

Update: Pulse is now available. Grab it here in the Marketplace. (Thanks, Mike P., for the heads up!)

Woo, this is big news! I've been hoping to get Pulse on WP7 quite for a while.

I agree! Now all I need is Words with Friends! And Tikl

I think Fuse stole their thunder :)

velvetelvis says:

ive been using fuse since this wasnt on wp7. ive used pulse on my old android phone and it really is good. they are a lot alike, but pulse has a lot of feeds to choose from where as in fuse you have to put them in yourself.

I think Rudy's adding that to Fuse, as that is something both Weave and Pulse do very well.

hyperik says:

They are to late, I use Fuse and it's a lot better that Pulse on my older iphone. Much nicer looking and graphically gorgeous.Pulse = 8.5/10Fuse = 9.5/10

nicomesh says:

People seem to forget that Fuse (or at least one of its themes) is a Pulse rip-off in the first place, and that's not something that should be encouraged, especially for a profit.Glad to see the genuine app coming to WP7 though!

rudyhuyn says:

Pulse in Windows Phone ! Nice :D@Daniel : yes suggestion is in development, but it's long to find nice feeds@hyperik : thanks ;)@nicomesh : don't forget that Fuse is :- 3 (very differents) themes- In-app youtube player- Share using QR-Code- live tile and multi live tile next week- youtube channel support- no limitation in group- a mobilizer feature- add google reader group- 2 other theme very soon- use windows phone color and if we speak about the ribbon theme : Fuse use all the screen space to view article : no header, no application bar when read an article, etc... 95% of the screen for read article ;)

Umm Yeah says:

Also remember that Fuse is $1.29 and Pulse will be free.

rudyhuyn says:

mmmmhhhhh, a free version is in preparation ;)

Umm Yeah says:

Even better! I do like free!

Just used the web marketplace to download this to my Trophy, and it was soooooo easy!You guys should start putting a link to web marketplace when mentioning apps.

Yeah, will have to see how that works. Right now, that link works best for our app, which will parse it and shoot it over to the "More" section--heck that's how I get a lot of my apps, so easy. But the Web Marketplace obviously has it's Pros to when on a PC.

Been using Weave myself. Would love to see a head to head review of Pulse, Weave and Fuse.

lumic says:

Haven't really tried Fuse, but I spent a few minutes with Pulse and uninstalled it. Weave seems much better for me.

Steppa.Sound says:

Just tried Pulse. It's not as fully featured as the Android / iOS app. The WP7 app lacks the following:- Ability to group feeds into topics (eg News, Sports , Tech or whatever your Fancy is)- Ability to link Google Reader account to load feeds- When reading an article, you cannot swipe right to left (or vice versa) to the get to the next (or previous article). You have to activate the ribbon, swipe to the article you want then click on it to read it. NOTE: FUSE has this problem too.I am glad that Pulse joined the WP7 movement. COmpetition between them , FUSE and WEAVE can only mean better choices for us end users. However, I suspect that the Pulse app will be more popular with International WP7 users than FUSE due to the currency limitation of Marketplace.

jabtano says:

I have Pulse on my nook color...BUT...I have Fuse on my HD7...there it will stay....

Reloaded#WP says:

Fuse is maybe "ripping" the ribbon design but for the moment it is smoother and faster than Pulse on Windows Phone. So I will continue using Fuse :)

kallemia says:

Fuse is wonderful. Pulse is late to the show. Sorry, nicomesh, but competition is GOOD for the ecosystem.

Won't let me download Pulse anymore. Says it's either not supported on my device (Lumia 800) or region (U.S) ?!?

Where did pulse go??
