Stanford Students Put Up A Smart Rss Reader On Ipad

It's iPad everywhere! So I thought why not get an app that would enhance your experience on the Apple's tablet, even more. There are almost 500,000 apps available in the App store. I chose an RSS-based news aggregator app by two Stanford students. The app offers deep storage, and doesn't let you worry about adding never ending pages to the app.
Developing a unique, digital news app for the most popular device, the iPad, in just 5 weeks is a smart move by the 2 young grads. The application is named "Pulse” with a price tag of $3.99 in the App store. The cultured RSS reader only provides the content as much as possible but the Pulse also lets you experience easy and comfortable readability with a cup of coffee.
It's a pretty feasible idea of flicking on the screen with fingers, to go through endless and multiple stories from never-ending resources. To go through your favourite blogger's post, just tap on the article and here you go with a maximized look, and a visually compatible readability. Just another good feature of Pulse is the share button which is two tap far away from you. Two taps on your favourite story and there it goes you can even use the web view feature for more convenient display and text.
Pulse developers, students from Stanford, have specifically enabled the portrait and landscape views in two different ways. The landscape view lets you to browse all kind of sources available instantaneously while portrait view allows you to go through a precise source.
App chiefly functions as:
- A dual display screen that lets you switch between multiple sources through a single tap only
- A dashboard that outlines as many stories as you want
- A smart search mechanism from beginning to end with keywords of your choice
- The app lets you to add up to 10 different sources
- Sharing it via email, Facebook and twitter
- The app also lets you to integrate through your Google Reader
The big flaw to the app that could make a difference is the video streaming which will hopefully be fixed soon.
