Pulse News Reader returns after NY Times cut out

Having fallen foul of the NY Times lawyers yesterday and seen their Pulse News Reader app for iPad yanked from the App Store, Alphonso Labs' software is now back in the marketplace [iTunes link] after being mildly reworked.  According to All Things D's sources, the team submitted a new version which removed the NY Times as a default feed and changed the screenshots used in their App Store listing to remove the paper from view.

Meanwhile they've also been told that other third-party news readers have provoked the NY Times' wrath in the past, and it's merely that Pulse is so topical right now that this has filtered up to make headlines.  Interestingly, they also say that Apple "will soon update older versions sold" which implies that the NY Times will be stripped from versions of Pulse News Reader purchased and installed prior to the legal scuffle.
