Hey folks! Today I want to write something about new magazine app in Google Play Store!
Sorry for the layout of this article, but something crashed in Admin Panel.
Zite has already +10 000 downloads on Android 2.1+ devices. It’s not such a big thing but the application itself is very interesting. It’s also available in App Store for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch running iOS 4 and above.
But what is Zite? It’s ”a free personalized magazine for your phone that automatically learns what you like and gets smarter every time you use it. Zite delivers all the great news, articles, blogs, and videos you want – and helps you discover new stuff that you’ll love.” Now you do not have to read:
- News Feed on Facebook
- Tweets on your Twitter account
- Google+ Stream
- Google Reader
- All blogs which you were reading till today
Why you don’t have to? Because everything is in Zite! Cool, isn’t it?
Have a look on some screenshots from my LG GT540 (Android 2.3.7):
To navigate from pane to pane, you can slide finger left & right. Very simple and intuitive.
When you’re ready, Zite will prepare some news for each section that you’ve chosen. When you click selected article it will open itself in very pretty view as you can see below (but sometimes I’ve noticed that article wanted to load in my browser, not in app):
Zite learns itself what you want to read. How? As you can see above, in the right corner there are two buttons. Like and Dislike. If you Like an article, Zite will prepare very similar news to that one. When you Dislike something, Zite will choose other news sites or even other topics of articles for you. Very useful in my opinion.
+ Cool design
+ Available on iOS & Android
+ Share article on Twitter/Facebook/Google+/E-mail/Bluetooth, etc.
+ Article view
- Sometimes articles are opening in web browser
So that’s all. I hope that after reading that few sentences you’re interested in Zite, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as same as I do
If you’ve tested Zite, leave a comment below with your opinion! Thanks!
