First things first, Nokia’s Pulse app is not the same as Alphonso Labs’ much acclaimed news reader. It’s a location based app that lets you share geotagged images and status updates. In all honesty, reading about it on Nokia’s website makes it sounds a lot like Latitude, but with deep integration with Nokia Maps.
Which begs: what’s the point of porting it to Android and iOS? The app, still in beta even on Nokia’s platforms, has a 3 star rating despite the lesser competition. Do they really imagine it to gain any significant traction on the other platforms?
