I am sure some of you have heard that Google Reader will no longer be available after July 1, 2013 many people got a little worried. I have news for you though there is a wonderful little app called Pulse that is super easy to use and is available for iOS and android based devices as well as the computer.
At this point you should already be on your way to the app store because you are going to have to pick another app to use for keeping up with the blogs that you read.
I know us scrapping people love to follow other blogs and I have quite a few that I follow myself along with other news that I wont bore you with as it isn’t scrappy related!
So what is Pulse? “Pulse is a great way for you to be able read your blogs, magazines, social networks and newspapers” this is directly from the Pulse website. I think Pulse is a great app and I first tried Pulse on my Nook, I enjoyed it on my Nook so I then downloaded it to my iPhone and my iPad and of course as long as you log in with your login credentials you are going to see the same account everywhere!
You can send articles to Evernote or Pocket which are other great apps and you can also share an article to Facebook, Twitter or Email it directly from the app. It doesn’t get easier than that! You can set it so that you will be notified of breaking stories or of new sources that come available, which I have set to on! I am a news junkie 🙂
My favorite thing about Pulse is the way it is set up so that I can access the different sections. After I tap on the section that I want to read it is broken down into a newsstand view and I can read blog posts from the many different blogs that I try to keep up with in my spare time!
So even though Google Reader will no longer be with us there are different options to choose from so that you can keep up with all those wonderful scrapbooking blogs just like this one!!! 🙂
