Pulp overview

Pulp is a unique and innovative newsreader that lets you turn your favorite news sites into your own personalized newspaper, and make scanning through the news quicker and more enjoyable than ever before. By combining multiple news feeds onto a single page, Pulp lets you quickly scan through headlines, previews, and photos to find the stories that interest you most. With a beautiful user interface, one-click sharing, and a companion app for your iPad, Pulp is the ultimate news reading experience.

Totally Customizable

Pulp is fully customizable. Create unique categories to separate your feeds by. Then, modify the layout of each page by adding, removing, and resizing columns. Finally, add feeds to populate each column, change each feed's appearance style, rules, and more. Forget the boring, concrete layouts you're used to seeing on the web. With Pulp, you are your own editor.

Tired of feeds that only publish short text previews? Introducing Magic Reader - with a tap of a button, it lets you see the full story formatted into a clean and easy-to-read format, regardless of where it's from.

While I still like Pulp, I felt I should give potential purchasers a "heads up" regarding Pulp's future. I read today that Pulp's (and Wallet's) developers have accepted an offer from Facebook to go to work for them. They (Pulp's developers) state quite plainly on their website's blog (http://blog.acrylicapps.com/) that they will not be doing any further development for Pulp or Wallet. So it seems that v2.5.2 is the end of the line for Pulp... RIP John

No Google Reader support is a deal breaker.

I've always liked the newspaper metaphor that Pulp (formally Times) uses, but did have some issues with its operation. I think this new version is really nice, and it seems those issues are gone now. I had no trouble using it and getting the feeds I was interested in, and the way it looks/works makes it the best news aggregator out there. Very intuitive and easy to use. I did encounter a bug that was causing it to crash after some use. I emailed the developers and, after they requested some data which I provided, they've indicated that they've found and fixed the bug. This all took place in the space of about 3 hours today! So they get 5 stars for support, too!
