Pulse is one of our favorite personalized news aggregating apps, but the latest app made it even better than ever, adding a redesigned catalogue with sexy coverflow action, an improved UI and even a new Zite-like Smart Dock to supercharge an already great app.

Here’s what’s new, according to the release notes:

• Completely Redesigned Catalog: New cover flow interaction to browse through sources and discover your favorite content

• Introducing Smart Dock: Based on what you read, Pulse recommends you sources you may enjoy

• Simpler, Cleaner Interface: Pulse takes a back seat, and lets the content shine and take the center stage

I’m loving these changes, especially the personalized Smart Dock, which tries to match some of the smart recommendations of competing aggregators like Zite.

If you’re a fan of Pulse, or have been letting it collect dust since discovering Flipboard, the latest version is worth a hard look. Grab the latest Pulse for iPad and Pulse for iPhone now.
