When Steve Jobs announced the iPad, he demoed Pulse – a super-slick RSS reader designed by some Stanford grads. Although Pulse had a minor hiccup (pulled from the App Store, then reinstated shortly thereafter), it became quite popular – today, the iPhone version has an average rating of 4.5/5 stars.

Rather than simply displaying RSS feeds as lines of text, Pulse grabs thumbnails for each, and lays them out in square boxes that are organized via source and scrollable.
