Taptu - DJ Your news 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 275 reviews.

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.

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.

Its amazing how much good information is available free. This app is a huge help in accessing and organizing that information. If you like to read web sites, this app is for you. Pulse is good also (has separate pages for grouping sources), but Taptu is more flexible and has better selection of sources.

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.

I got this app as a supplement to my articles on Pulse. Let me say right now Pulse is now archived. This app does so much more, offers so much more it is actually amazing. With all of the streams available, there is always something to read that is interesting to almost anybody. It even has the ability to add any RSS and turn it into a stream, so it can always be right at your fingertips. If you don't add any other app to your NC, you should probably add this one!

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

Try it, it is free. I personally love it. I can have all my news in one place without having to go from one website (facebook, yahoo news, cnn news, etc) to another.

Have both Taptu and Pulse on my NC. Like Pulse for quick headlines and Taptu for direct sources

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! -Silente

I'm really glad that the NC finally got another RSS option to choose from. You would think that something billing itself as a reader's tablet would try to have several, but I'll take what I can get. This app lets me easily download a morning's worth of news onto my Nook for my morning train commute. It's noticibly less distracting than Pulse and definitely less buggy than my6sense, which I can't stand. My one major gripe is that it doesn't seem to load new stories throughout the day when I refresh, even though I know there's new content. This seems to be a problem with all Nook RSS apps. Still hoping for something better, but this will do for now.

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.

I am very impressed with this App. Aggregates all my RSS feeds from Mashable to NPR to my library's new books. Great way to keep up with Facebook and all the blogs I monitor.

I was hesitant at first especially believing anything free can't be that good. I also believed it was probably going to contain the same liberal bias the Pulse app had. Taptu is great!! I create the streams i want to follow so it follows what I want. I het everything i want in one app from the NFL to Fox News. It also has streams to the Huffington Post, and Liberal blogs if you follow those. I highly recommend Taptu.

This is the one app I use daily on my Nook tablet. There are several blogs I like to follow, but don't remember to check each day. Taptu is perfect for this. Being able to merge feeds into a single row is fantastic! Highly recommended!

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.

Everytime I open it, I say "WOW"! There ae so many channels, like hundreds of thousands. Everyone can have news of any sort now! Good, bad, funny, eye-catching, and about anything from fashion, to technology, to religion, and everything else... I would definately recomend this to anyone, because it has something for everyone. It has so many sources, too! Get it!!!!!
