Excellent RSS Reader
This is one of the few readers I have found that does not require the user to have an account with Google or another service. You simply add the link for the RSS feed and that is added to the page. The look and feel of the app is appealing due to its simplicity. But you have enough flexibility to arrange feeds as you wish.
It is a shame that the writers of this app are no longer supporting it. It is certainly the most used app I have and I will be very disappointed when the iOS no longer supports its use.
I did run into the same problem as other users have stated where the app crashes within 5 minutes of starting it. I started deleting the feeds I configured (after saving each link in notepad) and found the feed that was causing the crash. I was able to put all the feeds back in, even the one that had caused the problem in the first place.
Still a good rss aggregator but needs to be updated to work nicely with current OS.
It looks like it's been 4 years since this app was last updated. I wish the developers would update it as I've noticed that it doesn't work as smoothly as it used to (it crashes a lot more often).
It's still a GREAT aggregator - I've used it multiple times daily for over 4 years now - and I can't imagine trying to find a replacement for it (actually, I HAVE looked and haven't found anything I like that comes close to replacing it).
PLEASE consider updating this app! I'm begging you, the developers!
Excellent...except for... constant crashing
This is a fun news reader... it always has been. However, it could take 7, 8 or more attempts to get it to launch without crashing. "Frustrating" is an understatement.
Just as the FaceBook feature broke, I came here to complain and voila: an update literally seconds-old!
FIXED and FIXED.
Reliable launch, Facebook is fixed. My favorite RSS newsreader is now rock-solid! I can put my alternates away and go 100% back to Pulp again! I've used this app since it was “Times" on Max OS X and I'm happy to see the new OS X version is available as well. This is a GREAT newsreader, the inline text-only feature is rock-solid and a breeze.
Thank you developers for finally fixing Pulp! Please, don't wait so long next time!
Recommendation: BUY. It is a pleasant user interface, easy to use, stable, and handles Twitter and Facebook posting very gracefully, including emailing an article: a graceful presentation in the email with a nice "teaser" from the article itself.
A "class act" as apps go.
