Acrylic Software has updated its distinctive Pulp newsreader for the iPad adding the ability to sync with Pulp for Mac. Pulp provides users with a customizable newspaper-style view of their RSS feeds, grouping articles into pages that allow users to quickly scan through headlines, previews and photos. Users can create their own categories to organize their pages and customize the column layout and presentation of each page. The latest version now allows users to synchronize pages, feeds and read articles between the iPad and Mac versions of the app via a free Pulp Sync account. The update also adds a home screen badge to display the number of new articles, the ability to search feeds based on title or keyword, swipe gestures for moving between articles and support for saving articles to Readability. Pulp for the iPad requires iOS 4.3 or later and is available from the App Store for $5. Pulp for Mac is sold separately and is currently available from the Mac App Store for an introductory price of $10.
