No brainer

My favorite app on the nook. This is the only app I rated 5 stars. Pulse is nice but this app is way better. It also has 5 times the rss feeds of pulse and it's noticeably faster.

Disappointing on content

Could not find any of the rss feeds I follow regularly with Pulse. It kept responding "You've got us stumped...." These incuded Smitten Kitchen, Homesick Texan, and Unclutterer; fairly mainstream and widely followed. Back to Pulse I go.

    What a great news-app!

    Before i start i just want to clarify that i am a HUGE nerd and thus i have tons of obscure news feeds that i like to follow. That being said ill say first that this app is brilliant! It has a nice easy to navigate user-interface and I was easily able to find all of my favorite websites amd have them show up as news feeds. The app was fast and responsive and seemed very well-optimised for the nook (i have the nook-tablet) I would recommend this to anyone who is a bit frustrated with the nook's default browser and just wants to read thier internet articles easily. My only complaint (thus the 4 stars) is that there is no video support inside the app. It instead pushes you to the browser whenever you select a video. If this is added in a future update i will be happy to change my rating, but until then the 4 stars stays. But overall this is a great free news app that allows you to get news from your favorite websites easily and id recommend it to anyone!!
    Enjoy!

    Does What it Says it Does

    Honestly, this app isn't all that different from Pulse, but it does have a little bit more by the way of appearance customizations as well as the ability to merge feeds, which is nice for sites that lack an all-in-one feed. On top of that, creating feeds using this app seemed a lot easier and seem to look a bit cleaner here as opposed to Pulse. Unfortunately, it currently lacks a notification feature; something that should be a no-brainer with this type of app.

    Cosmetic changes like changing the title bar background color give it a more personalized feel which is also nice. Also, being able to change the sizeband content displayed for article previews is nice.

    If you're used to Pulse, you'll probably be able to use this just as well, but you might not find enough of a reason to abandon it here. At the very least, it's worth a look-see.

    Almost

    This is an awesome app; however, I have one huge request: when a feed is marked "read" can it either hide or turn a subdued color so not to confuse with stuff not read? Sorry, but after having and scanning 100 feeds my old eyes get buggy. Thank you though for now as it is pretty cool...better than Pulse.

    Good app. Better than Pulse

    I like the fact that wifi isn't needed all the time to read the articles. Thats the biggets thing for me.

    Nice UI, Integration with specialty feeds can be hard

    I have been using PULSE and decided to try TAPTU. I think the UI is better with TAPTU. I think that PULSE has more capability to add RSS feeds. I was able to create Google reader feeds and integrate my feeds into TAPTU, but TAPTU would not find the feeds when I entered the URLs into TAPTU directly. I decided to go back to using PULSE. Both apps are very good feed readers. TAPTU is really great when the feeds you want to follow are included. If you want obituaries from your local news site, I would recommend that you use PULSE.

    Great news feed

    Looks good and runs great. My only gripe so far is that I can't figure out if I can order the feeds by preference, the menu and settings seems to be minimal.

    Pretty good app. Crashes too often.

    It is a pretty good rss reader if you only follow a few feeds. Easy to use, nice UI.

    But it is brittle and crashes, (unexpectedly returns to main screen and refreshes or just exits) ver frequently. But it is free and the good UI makes it ythe best rss reader on the Nook Color.

    Ok

    Good app. I liked the Pulse interface better(ability to organize, etc.), but Pulse wouldn't load pages properly,....kept going to previously opened pages, not loading, and just acting funky. I deleted it. I give a 4 star to this app. It works, it's free, but a bit cluttered and clunky.

    Good Google replacement

    I really prefer Inoreader, but it isn't available on the older Nook non HD tablets. However, this is a good alternative for that particular reader as well as Google's. The interface isn't too hard to figure out, & if it can't find the feed you're looking for, you can manually enter the url if you know it. However, the web version does have a few issues such as not synching with the mobile app properly, rearranging your feeds without your permission, & no option to manually enter urls, so I recommend just sticking to using the mobile app & forgo using the site if you wish to use this as your Google replacement.

    Great

    Great choices, lots of variety, quick to refresh with news feeds. Just wish all stories were full instead of partial n then go to full site. Sometimes you just wanna stay n read to have access right at taptu page and read more
