The immensely popular pulse application is now available on android. Alphonso labs showcased its Android Tablet version of the news reader application Pulse at the Honeycomb launch event at Google Headquarters.
In relation to this, Google launched the Android Market Webstore, for making the purchase of applications for their Android smartphones and tablets easier, i.e., through a Web browser. Earlier users had to purchase Android apps through the Android Market client from smartphones and tablets. Pulse is among the five apps to be featured in the Android Market Webstore. Google explicitly mentioned Pulse in the launch event with a short description, which was much like the mention by Steve Jobs a year ago.
Cristina Cordova -VP of Business Development, Alphonso Labs sent us few exclusive screenshots of the Android tablet app which is to be released later this month. Cristina also shared that they’ve found that students really like the app because getting news is tough when they’re on college campus. We are sharing the screenshots for our readers.
There are many features which have already made Pulse one of the most popular applications. They have also included few Facebook Feed features for giving its users a social experience.
“We worked closely with Google over the last few weeks to customize our Pulse News application and take full advantage of the Honeycomb platform.” said Cristina in an e-mail response.
Honeycomb lets developers include richer content in the notifications. Pulse plans to show news stories, including image and headlines in these notifications to its users.
