Pulse was one of the first news readers apps for the iPad and still remains among the most popular and best feed reader apps (and is now available on Android and iPhone as well). Until today, though, the service was missing a real web component for when you wanted to read stories on your desktop. The new Pulse.me service aims to change this by allowing you to save stories from the Pulse apps for later reading on the Web. In addition, Pulse also allows you to sync these reading lists with established services like Instapaper, Evernote and Read It Later, as well as your Pulse account on other devices.

Overall, while the new Pulse.me site is well designed, the service still feels a bit limiting unless you do most of your reading in Pulse itself. It’s missing a ‘read later’ bookmarklet for the Web, for example, that would allow you to pick any story on the Internet and save it for later reading on Pulse.me.

Mashable’s Jennifer Van Grove says she has “reason to believe that a way to save web stories to Pulse.me is in the works.” That would be nice indeed, as the combination of Pulse’s new web service and the wide availability of its apps would make for a very strong Instapaper competitor once these features are available.
