Pulse RSS Reader Removed From iPad Store

Category: Mobile
Posted: 12:43PM

The Pulse RSS reader has been removed from the iPad app store at the request of the New York Times. As it is a paid app, costing $4, it violates the Terms of Use of the New York Times website, which prohibits commercial use of its content. Pulse has had over 35,000 downloads and impressed Steve Jobs enough that it was mentioned during the WWDC keynote speech. This could lead to the possibility of more readers being taken down as the good ones are usually paid apps and like to include the Times. The creators plan to work with Apple and remove the Times feed from the app.
