Pulse News Reader is one of my favorite apps, one that I use it almost exclusively for my news aggregation. One feature I always found lacking was the ability to see what my friends have shared using the service. Now, it appears, that my wishes have come true with Pulse announcing a new feature today.

"We've always been good at providing you with really good things to read. But now we are also getting into discovery. With Highlights, discovery is about people: close friends and family sharing content that's interesting and relevant for you", said Pulse co-founder Akshay Kothari.
