Edited: Great app but MAJOR data hog. Expect this apptt alone to eat more than 1gb per month unless you disable 3g data when not connected to a lan.

Honestly, it is excellent! Only thinğ I can say is I wish it were bigger. Like as big as the original News widget for at & t HTC Aria.

I like it a lot, but it would be nice to have a widget that uses all of my feeds as source, becaus having a widget for all of them is a vaste!

The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't have the feature to mark posts as read when you've read them. I connected Pulse to my Google Reader account so I could catch up on those stories on the go. But because it doesn't mark those stories as having been read, they show up again not only when I access Google Reader on the web but also within the Pulse app itself. So I have to scroll through the 10 or 30 or 50 stories I've already read to get to those which I have not. Very annoying.

This app is fantastic, it's pretty, simple to use and quite customizable, BUT it consumes my resources constantly, even with background update disabled. So I force stop it but some time later it'll come back, even though I'm not needing it. This might not seem like an issue but when you have a Motobloat phone, you can't let apps waste your precious resources.

Installed Pulse a while ago and removed it. Then installed it again and love it. I have everything at my finger tips. Keep up the good work.

How many times have you been on the subway (underground with no service), tapped an article only to find the annoying "tap here to read more" and missing images within the articles? They need a TRUE offline option - they advertise it as working offline, but this is not the case. 3 stars until this happens.

The killer app. In fact, if there were a "Pulse slab" (hardware that exists SOLELY to run Pulse) that was Kindle-thin, Kindle-light, with a9" 4:3 mirasol or Pixel Qi display, some kind of built in 3G service (no browser, 3G would just pull RSS feeds), and got 20 hours of battery life....I'd rather have that than my Asus Transformer. Forget Honeycomb, iOS, Ice Cream Sandwhich, QNX, whatever...the tablet form factor exists for Pulse. I'm ranting, but I'm right.

Droid x gets very hot and bricks while using pulse for more than ten minutes. Happening after 2.3 update

This is by far my favorite and most frequently used app. Updates frequently. Needs better loading capabilities from sources with embedded videos, otherwise would be a five star app. Definitely the best news reader out there.
