• Pulse App Updated with LinkedIn Integration and Support for One-Tap Read Later Feature

    In its first update after being purchased by LinkedIn for $90 million, Pulse recently showed the first signs of integration with the networking site by adding the ability to share stories with a user’s professional network. Pulse was acquired by LinkedIn in April as the professional networking site looks to push further into generated content. At the time it wasn’t clear exactly how the company planned to leverage the newsreader but the recent update gives a peek as to what direction Pulse may be headed.

    Although version 3.1 only brings two enhancements – sharing stories with a user’s professional network on LinkedIn and one-tap saving of stories, the mere integration with LinkedIn reveals that Pulse will be used as a content circulator of some sort. Deep Nishar, LinkedIn’s head of product and user experience, said the following when Pulse was first acquired:

    We believe LinkedIn can be the definitive professional publishing platform – where all professionals come to consume content and where publishers come to share their content.
    The addition of one tap saving and sending stories to Pocket, Evernote and Instapaper will be a welcomed feature addition for many users. Saved assets will now be sent to all services activated in the menu. This is the case as “save to” selections have moved from the “send to” menu, the button now brings up a dedicated sharing menu with hooks into LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Users can also choose to share stories via email and SMS. Aside from the few major functionality changes, the app received some minor user interface tweaks and bug fixes.

    Users who are interested in downloading the 33.8MB free app can do so from the App Store right now.
