Pulse is one of my new favorite iApps and it translates on the web with similar user experiences as on the iApps. Pulse is a news aggregator, however, it's not just news or politics but it can take almost any blog or site and be placed in a category for you to browse.
If you like to read news and read news fast then this app is what you need. Best thing of all, it's free! And you can sync the app with the web app so you never lose a story. Be sure to check it out www.pulse.me.
