VentureBeat: “…A deeper news reading experience than most competitors, in particular because I was able to easily combine news sources…the app also does a great job of recommending stories.”
Brothersoft: “Again, Taptu has taken advantage of the fact that it is a veteran in the field of mobile search. It is in the search aspects that it is able to dominate rival Flipboard”

Taptu user reviews:
It used to be the best before they’ve decided to make a column for ads right at the bottom of the home Page.. :< And Flipboard is here with no ads…
love this app! pulse could not keep its initial lead. do not mind paying $1 to eliminate ads n. keep u guys going
Otherwise it’s still a very good app. But you really need to reconsider the ad banner size! Please!!
A better news reader than Pulse. 5 stars if ads free.
This was an awesome app til I updated and with it came ads with the option to buy it without ads. I don’t want ads. They weren’t there before I updated and now that they are, Taptu won’t be there anymore either. It no longer gets 4 stars, it gets no stars and is removed from my phone. Take your ads and shove it!
Perfect news app and not a resource hog. 5 banger.
