    Al Jazeera, the 24-hour news and current affairs channel, and Pulse, the award-winning visual news reader available for iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets, and the Web, have announced a content partnership that brings Al Jazeera’s reporting to Pulse’s more than 5 million users. The content will come from Al Jazeera English and includes Al Jazeera Front Page, Opinion, Features and more.

    “It’s important to offer our users a global perspective,” said Akshay Kothari, CEO and co-founder of Pulse. “The addition of Al Jazeera and its world-class international reporting helps ensure that we are providing the most comprehensive experience for our millions of users around the world.”

    “Pulse is a perfect partner to extend our digital reach, making it easy for people to find and consume our content,” said Moeed Ahmad, New Media Department Manager at Al Jazeera. “We have readers from all over the world and now we are giving them even more access to the latest breaking news from across the world in a way that is fast and convenient.”

    As part of the Al Jazeera partnership, Pulse will feature the following new sources:

    * Al Jazeera Front Page
    * Al Jazeera Video (featuring in-app video for every story)
    * Al Jazeera global news, including Al Jazeera Americas, Asia-Pacific, Central and South Asia, Europe, and Middle East
    * Al Jazeera In Depth, Opinion, Briefings, Features, and Spotlight
    * Al Jazeera Business
    * Al Jazeera Sports

    Pulse recently surpassed 5 million users across all platforms, and was honoured with an Apple Design Award, which recognizes excellence in iPhone, iPad and Mac app design. In June of this year, Pulse debuted Pulse.me, which allows users to save stories for later reading in their personal archives, viewable on any Pulse-enabled device or the Web.
