iPhone News Apps from the Past
LinkedIn Pulse by LinkedIn
Pulse has long been a close competitor to Flipboard and was the first to successfully feature a web-based version of news reader. The talented Pulse team was acquired by LinkedIn and since then has undergone several iterations. The current version integrates loosely with LinkedIn but still maintains the centrality of a newsreader experience. On the main page, you will find your profile picture at the top and underneath a news feed with top headlines. You can swipe to the right to save articles for later, swipe left for articles you don't like, and you have the option to select the thumbs-up button or ribbon to like and save articles. A smaller profile icon can be found at the top right. Here you can locate your most recent activity, save articles, and people you are following. (Note: This app was discontinued as a natural consequence of the purchase of LinkedIn by Microsoft.
