Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone. Here are our top 10 picks.
Pulse News (Free)
Do your eyes glaze over as you gaze upon headline after headline on your traditional RSS reader? Pulse News offers a tidy alternative, slurping up your favorite feeds and reorganizing them into a layout of neat boxes arranged by source. Tap the refresh icon in the upper right corner of each row to get new content, or scroll through the list of stories by panning to the right.
Pulse curates your news by prepackaged topic (Art & Design, News & Analysis, Science, Sports, etc.), or you can choose from the directory of sources to add your favorite sites to this visual mini-reader. Consider the wealth of sharing options and the ability to beam longer pieces to Read It Later—and you’ll realize that this app is a must-download.
