If you are a big Pulse.ng fan, a sucker for mobile apps, and hate typing in URLs, then your Christmas gift may have just arrived early.
We just came upon the Pulse.ng news app, and it weights very little. (Although it’s been available since 2014, the latest update was pushed to the app in October).
One thing you should notice about the app is that it doesn’t push ads. We did alot of check many times just to be sure.
According to Rich Tanksly, the Head of Pulse Nigeria
“Currently we are not pushing ads to the app, but once we get significant traction on it, we will start pushing minimal ads. Although I would have loved an ad-free Pulse.ng app, it appears it’s the best way to monetize the app. A premium (or subscription model) doesn’t seem like a hot idea in Nigeria where most people believe online content should be free.”
The app is similar to other news app. It collects all Pulse.ng content (videos and text) and arrange them neatly into categories.
The app has a nice feel. It’s smooth and easy to move around with and one can hardly notice any lag. One could move around without the fear of unknowingly or unwillingly clicking on ads, therefore spoiling the whole reading experience.
