LinkedIn Pulse Comments

Pulse good or general user

Positive Comment by dmitrim
about LinkedIn Pulse and Feedspot, Feedly, Google Reader Jul 2013

Its good general user, fancy interface fast browsing

But for core RSS users, it becomes difficult to skim to large amount of feeds
Features like search within my feeds granularly and keeping track of read and unread count if important
Most of the RSS readers like Digg newsblur feedly feedspot provide these basic functionalities

Pulse is a decent application but NewsACE is far more better than this apps.

Comment by BuboyMorana
about LinkedIn Pulse Mar 2012

NewsAce is much better than PULSE and TAPTU..you know why? because NewsAce has something to offer from vast selection of news feed, high quality recommended news channel with over 400+ has to offer, gesture navigation which you can swipe form left to right and feel the superb user interface and also NewsAce supports Korean Language and more Asian countries aside from US. so if I were you I'll give it a try to use NewsAce and see the big difference from top news application of 2011.
