Today’s Fresh Android apps features a clever mosquito repellent, an easy way to plan an upcoming trip, and a colorful news reader.

It’s not very common to associate the word “colorful” with the word “news.” The Pulse News Reader app is a platform for popular news sources and it has a heavy emphasis on photos. Each publication gets its own row, with a list of headlines, author information when available, and a nice big photo.

You can tap any story to open up a page where you can read the text of the article and see a larger photo. Pulse News Reader initially ran for between $1 and $4 in the Android Marketplace, but for today, the app is available for free.
