Pulse or the company behind this applicatio is now owned by LinkedIn. This mobile application, designed to display news is available on all widespread platforms. Pulse was founded back in 2010 by two students at the Stanford University, Ankit Gupta and Akshay Kothari. It currently has over 30 million users (40% outside of the U.S.) in more than 190 countries all over the world,

This application could surely help LinkedIn expand their business. According to Vice President in this "serious" social network, they believe that LinkedIn can become "personal publishing platform" where consumers content will also be published. The value of the acquisition is $90 million. Deep Nishar, SVP of Products and User Experience  said „We are thrilled to be able to add Pulse's considerable talent, technology, and products to our growing ecosystem of content offerings, and we believe that they will help us accelerate our ability to deliver to our members the insights they need to be better at what they do, on any device“

According to currently available information, mobile application will continue to exist in its current form, on all platforms where it is available, atleast for now as it stands in the official blog.
