    Talking Flipboard vs. Pulse vs. Feedly...

    I'm going with flipboard.. Maybe Feedly second... What do you think? Post one you think is better than all three of these if you use it.

    I use Newsify for news. Flipboard is probably the single most overrated app in history. I think people like it because of the page turning graphics. As a news aggregator, something like a straight Google Reader app like Newsify is the best way to go.

    I personally favor Flipboard also. I've used Pulse as well, but I prefer the layout of Flipboard more. I just really love the set up, including the way the pages "flip" as you turn them

    I've used all three and personally, I would rank them as follows:

    1. Flipboard
    2. Feedly
    3. Pulse

    I could never get into Pulse because its interface was too busy for my liking. I really like Feedly and used it before Flipboard came on the scene. Of course, Flipboard is more elegant. Still, my go-to RSS/Google Reader is Feeddler Pro. On my iPhone, I'm currently re-testing the Reeder app to see if it will finally appeal to me.

    I like Flipboard...easy to read, the integration of Twitter and LinkedIn makes it an 'everything in one place' great app for me! Pulse was too busy...and integration of apps is not ready yet.

    I use both Flipboard and Pulse. I switch back and forth. I like the layout of Flipboard, but feel I get better news feeds on Pulse. Really since they are free there is nothing bad about using them all

    I agree with you both as far as the UI in Pulse being 'busy' Thats another reason why i favor Flipboard. It just looks smoother, cleaner.

    I've never tried "Feedly" but i'll have to give that one a look now D

    Is Google Currents on iOS? I used to use it on my Nexus and it was really cool. I use flipboard now because I like the layout.

    I use pulse and flipboard. Both apps are great but I use pulse for my RSS feeds and use flipboard just to check out random articles and feeds.

    There is nothing wrong with that, my friend. Pulse has a large user base and it is fast, but it doesn't appeal to everyone. No app does. So you continue enjoying Pulse and have a great evening....

    Google Currents: It integrates with my Google Reader and the aggregation really works.

    Flipboard is sexy - but for me, the "sexy" part of it stands in the way between me and productivity.

    In regard to Flipboard, I agree. It is a gorgeously made app and it does give you that magazine feel and it's very nicely done, however, after a while, it took away from my reading. The flipping became a chore and I realized that I preferred a no nonsense RSS reader and no matter what app I experiment with, I always return to Feeddler Pro.

    If you're looking for something that's sexy but encourages you to more productively consume content checkout Skim.Me (). It's not for everyone. Flipboard, Pulse, Feedly, Zite, Currents, Editions, Summly, Prismatic, Wavii, Circa and others are luxurious experiences for some people that browse through a few interest topics or sources. Where they fall short is making me actually feel caught up. They are time-wasters for me.

    The mission at Skim is to help you keep up digitally in a less addictive and less overwhelming way. Our experience encourages users to have a few full info meals with us per day rather than constantly compulsively snacking. Users who care about productivity but could use some outside discipline can tell Skim how much time they have to browse while we show you only what content you haven't seen before (not infinite scroll). We'll also keep count of how many times you visit and discourage you from visiting us too often. Computer web first, tablet/smartphone soon. Hope some of you can check us out.

    The pulse update is pretty good in my opinion. I like the new icons as well.

    Hmmm. I just searched it and it came up. Maybe try a reboot and see if that helps.

    Pulse and Flipboard are tied for me.

    I think Flipboard is more elegant, but Pulse gives me more sources.

    Unfortunately Pulse's new update just causes the app to crash more.

    I tried Summarily (I think that's the name) and it would never remember my custom feeds between sessions. Circa didn't have the variety I was looking for.
