Pulse news isn't updating in the backgroundSupport

    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?

    I have the same issue with Pulse on the Excite 7.7, TF300 and GS3. taptu, IMO is a better app for same function.

    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.
