News Reader Pulse Debuts Cross-Platform Syncing

Pulse, an innovative news reading app for mobile devices, is debuting a new cross-platform syncing feature that allows users to access their accounts and saved sources across devices.

Pulse, which is developed by Alphonso Labs, launched last year via an iPad app as a more seamless (and visually appealing) way to read your RSS feeds. But Pulse ditched RSS in favor of hooking up with APIs to access content. Pulse’s home screen renders stories from your feeds on a dynamic mosaic interface and via a touch interface, allows you to swipe up and down to see headlines from various sources, and right and left to browse stories from a particular source. Pulse users can also bring in their news from 60 sources.

Recently, Pulse debuted the ability to create a personal account where you can save stories for reading later. Once you’re signed up, you can bookmark a story on your Android phone or the Web using a bookmarklet feature, and read it later on your another device. With this release, Pulse allows you to sync your sources across devices as well.

Basically the update allows a more unified reading experience across devices. Each source added will sync to all the devices you have Pulse on, including the service’s iPhone, iPad, Android and Android tablets apps.
