Question Pulse news isn't updating in the background

I've set it to update in the background and display notifications, but nothing seems to be happening; the feeds only refresh when I actually open the app. Does anyone know what might be wrong? I've enabled background data. If anyone else is using Pulse, do you have the same problem?

It's refreshing to know it's something to do with the app and not a problem on my end. Thanks, I'll give taptu a try.

I've managed to fix the problem. The master sync (the main sync that can be activated via the notification menu widgets) needs to be enabled for it to update in the background.
