Microsoft Brings 'Pulse' News App To IE10


Microsoft today announced the resesigned news application Pulse, coming with IE10.

Pulse started as an app which pulls content from thousands of news sources and blogs bringing together a customized view of your favorite conten. Today, Pulse takes the next step.

Today more than 15 million people around the world use the Pulse app on every major mobile platform, including Windows Phone. The app has grown to offer content from virtually every major U.S. publisher and a growing list of international ones.

Pulse worked in conjunction with the developers at Pixel Lab and the Windows Internet Explorer team to completely redesign Pulse using HTML5. It's a new experience for the Web will shine in Microsoft's new Internet Explorer 10 browser through its use of fast multitouch support.

To live up to the high bar set by its mobile apps, Pulse had to rethink the experience of using the application on a computer versus swiping and scrolling on a phone. The service will support touch gestures with Internet Explorer 10 on a touch device running Windows 8 Release Preview and, of course, will also work for those using a mouse and keyboard.

"There are things we can do with gestures on the smaller screen and the touch affordance that we can?t do on the Web," says Ankit Gupta, co-founder of Pulse. "Pinching, panning, zooming in and out, tapping - we had to examine all these gestures and come up with ways to let users control those actions."

The Pulse mobile app works on two axes, which on a phone is as natural as swiping a finger one way or the other, but on the Web, not so much. The solution? A new layout that combines collections without the need to scroll side to side.

"We had to get rid of the horizontal axis and focus on the vertical," Gupta says. "With our new design for the home page, all of the stories in the collection are combined and arranged in a beautiful layout that extends from edge to edge."

Apart from the new design, the company's biggest concern was to deliver speed and performance on the Web that rivals native applications running on portable devices. Internet Explorer 10 allowed them to do that with HTML5 and advanced touch support coupled with hardware acceleration enabled through Windows.

Pulse for the Web is available today at http://www.pulse.me. Web enthusiasts who would like to try it out with Internet Explorer 10 can download the Windows 8 Release Preview. Windows 8 with Internet Explorer 10 is scheduled to be commercially available in stores Oct. 26.
