Pulse 3: A Great Upgrade For Already Great News Reader

Pulse is one of the apps that you must have on your iPhone, Android or even the Amazon Kindle. It lets you read news from lots of resources and even add Google Reader to it. The reader is also available as a web app and Windows 8 app as well, so you can read news from your favorite sources anywhere.

The iOS app got an update this Thursday and there was another update(3.0.1) on Saturday.

You have three options with Pulse. Using their web app, iOS app or Android app. I have been using iOS app since January (when I got my iPhone). I updated the app the moment I saw the update.

New Fonts in Pulse 3:

This is first thing that you will notice. The old font was Serif based and gave the app a very newspaper like traditional look and feel. I did not like that very much.

After all, both iOS and Android have all the fonts based on Sans Serif and Sans Serif looks much better on screens.

With this update, the font in Pulse has been changed to Sans Serif and it is a great change.

Get Infinite Scrolling with Pulse 3:

Previously, there used to be a limit on number of stories you could read from a single source. Now, this has been removed.

You can continue scrolling to right side and it will keep loading previous stories. Much better and handy if you are reading news after a long time.

Unlimited News Sources Per Page:

With 2.9, there was a limit on the number of news sources you could have on a single page. This has been removed as well. You can add unlimited number of sources now without any worries. This will be a great feature if you track lots of news at once.

Dictionary Bug on iOS:

If you were a regular user of dictionary feature in iOS, you might have noticed a small but very irritating bug in the app. You could use the dictionary feature but only once. After that, no “Define” option was there if you selected a word.

Only workaround was to force quite the app and then start again. With this update, the bug is fixed. Now whenever you encounter a word you don’t know, ou can use iOS dictionary.

A New Logo

This is a confusing change. Before the update, app had a very simple logo. Take a look:

Now, the app has this:

I have no idea what it is and maybe I am stressing a big too much on the point but logo is not that good!

The web version has not received an update, and continues to have same blurry fonts as it had before.

But the iOS update is great and if you own an iPhone or iPad, update now and start reading your news in a new and improved way.

Innovative iOS Games That You Must Play 2016

Love it or hate it, iOS is still the platform of choice for most of the developers. And this makes sure that all the new and innovative games arrive on iOS first. We previously also wrote on addictive iOS games and 5+ must have iPhone Games.

In this post, I will tell you about innovative games that are fun to play. If you are looking for PC games then have a look at these Games to play this winter.

List of Innovative iOS Games:

Infinity Blade Series:
Infinity Blade series is not new but it is still very good and innovative. Infinity Blade 1 set the benchmark for iOS games in terms of looks and Infinity Blade 2 moved even further.

In both games, you have to fight monsters and customize your character to get stronger and better gear. The swipe controls are easy to use and make it easy to control the character.

If you have not yet played these, check out Infinity Blade 1 and Infinity Blade 2.

Super Hexagon

Super Hexagon is a strange and innovative puzzle game that will make you cry. It is hard. In fact, the game modes have difficulties hard, harder and hardest.

And once you complete a mode(which will need at least an hour for normal human beings), a new challenge will be there.

The best thing about the game is that it is hard and yet very addictive. It will make you come back to it, again and again and again and…

And did I mention the cool music? :D

Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy

You are a pilot with best weapons.

A enemy is fighting against US and has managed to destroy most of the army. Now, it is in your hands to save the world.

While the plot is not very new, Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy is an excellent game. Thanks to responsive controls and great multiplayer modes.

The learning curve is set up very nicely. I started with easier controls and am now using simulation controls, which are hardest. The transition was very smooth and did not cause much problems.

One thing that you may not like is that many powerful aircrafts are locked and you have to purchase them. Apart from that, the game is excellent and must have.

Pitfall

When you take a look at it initially, Pitfall is just another Temple Run type game.

However, that is not the case. It is remake of famous 1982 game released by Activision.

The iOS game is very good graphic wise and gameplay elements fit well. It is mostly like Temple Run but with better graphics and some good enhancements.

I have spent quite a lot of time playing this game and have not yet gotten bored of it. Try it, you will find it good for sure.

These were innovative games that you should download for iOS. Each of them has a specialty and every game is different from anything else available on iOS.
