Pulse for iPad displays graphic grid of RSS feeds

updated 11:30 am EDT, Mon May 31, 2010

In-app video promised in later update

Alphonso Labs has launched an unusual new RSS reader for the iPad, Pulse. The app's home screen displays items in the form of a grid, with story images where possible. Each row represents a separate news feed, which can be swiped horizontally to scroll through all of the latest updates. Tapping on a story opens up a text view; from there people can opt to switch to a web view.

The app supports both portrait and landscape modes, and can integrate with Google Reader. It continues to have several limitations, however; these include a limit of 20 feeds, and the inability to play embedded video. Alphonso is promising to add the latter feature in the next update, and eventually release Pulse for other platforms, beginning with the iPhone. The iPad software costs $4.
