Pulp

No secret I love the Mac App Store. It’s made my MacBook Air feel like an iPad and I can still install apps on my other Macs.

The latest App I’m trying is Pulp.

 

So far I like it, not quite love yet.

It’s very slick, they’ve added some small touches that just make it feel pretty. One is the edge of the window.

The paper look is a little thing but totally cool.

It takes a lot of work setting it up. I’m not totally done yet but I wish there was an easy way to import all my Google Reader stuff into tabs matching my folders. You can import Reader but it’s all manual. It’ll give you a big list of your feeds, you select what to import. I also think it should sync the unread items back to Reader. It does sync but to Pulp’s own server then to your other Mac’s or iPads. It works well for what it does, just a couple clicks on my MacMini and it’s all synced up.

The other cool feature is the Shelf. It’s a little holding place at the top of the app. Pulp 1

It pops out and you can drag articles to it to read later. I think this feature does need a keyboard shortcut though. You have to grab the mouse and drag stuff to it. It’s just not optomized for the way I work. I love keyboard shortcuts. I think thay shuld also add shortcuts for Instapaper, Twitter and Facebook but…

 

So far I love that app, if that can come up with a way to get a version on the iPhone I’d probably switch and use this instead of Google Reader! And Syncing to Reader would seal the deal!!
