It’s amazing what an on-stage Steve Jobs mention will do.
Everyone has been buzzing today after Pulse, the awesome news aggregator, was pulled from Apple’s App Store after the New York Times apparently complained about their use of content. But what’s really odd about this is that just 24 hours ago, Pulse was highlighted on stage by no less than the Apple CEO himself as a great new app for the iPad. Jobs and those running the App Store seemed to be on a completely different page. Not anymore.
Pulse has already made a triumphant return to the store, their Twitter account confirms. So what happened? Did Jobs himself step into the fray and get the NYT to ease up? More to come.
You can find the $3.99 app once again here.
Update: When asked how the app returned so quickly, co-creator Akshay Kothari wrote back:
We’re trying to figure that out ourselves. Keep you posted.
