Pulse, which is touted as being “the most downloaded news app ever” in addition to being an Apple Design Award winner, has just received a small yet very “social” update.

As you may already know, seeing as it’s one of the most popular apps on iOS, Pulse is an app that brings all of the Web content you like in one place.

With Pulse, you can easily aggregate content from major publishers, blogs, and social networks in a visually appealing interface.

And in the newly updated version of the app, you can now also view your social streams, as in Flipboard, from four of the most popular social networks right within Pulse.

The four social networks in question are Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube.

If you want to integrate any of these networks into your Pulse account, just tap “Add Content” and tap the plus button corresponding to Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr, or YouTube.

You don’t have to sign in right then. But you’re required to do so once you’re on the Pulse page where you opted to put your chosen social network.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the latest version of Pulse is available now in the App Store for free.
