Pulse for Windows Phone 7

If you’re an avid newsreader then you must have come across a lot of applications for this purpose on Android or iOS. But for Windows Phone 7 this was not exactly a bed of roses. While there are quite a few apps available, there was always something missing either in terms of features or performance. However Pulse has finally made its way to Windows Phone, it was a long wait, but it was well worth it. Let’s have a look at the app.

If you’ve used this app on Android you’ll be right at home with it on Windows Phone. It follows the same design principal. Pulse basically lets the user keep track of news from various different sources or websites, which are configurable. The app also supports fast resume which means it’s Mango certified and that it can run in your background. Switching back to it won’t reload anything and you can get right back to where you left from which is very convenient indeed. There’s no dearth of content. Pulse has over 200+ content partners and users can choose up to 20 websites for content updates. The app even suggests feeds based on previous feeds you’ve added and in addition there’re separate staff picked feeds that help you get new from the most reliable sources. There aren’t a lot of settings to choose from, the only one being the choice between having the app run in the background or not.

Pulse also supports live tiles so if you’re not running the app you can still be notified of updates. Pulse also allows users to share news stories on popular social networks such as Twitter, Facebook etc or email. The application as a whole is almost completely lag free and there are hardly any lock ups that we’ve come to expect from Windows Phone apps. That’s an impressive feat for an application that’s on its very first release.

Pulse is still a brand new app on Windows Phone 7 and was released only a few weeks ago. I expect as time goes by for the developer to come up with more updates and add more features. Even in its current form it’s the best newsreader on Windows Phone.

  4. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    What are your standards of success for a blog? Readership? Quality? Is there a relationship between readership and quality?. . What did people with successful blogs do to make them successful? Was it a kind of “if you build it, they will come” thing? Do they actively market themselves? Do they associate themselves with other famous bloggers or websites? How does it happen?. . Do you have a blog? What do you do with your blog? Do you consider yourself successful? Why?.
