App of the Week: Zite for iPad

Have you ever dreamed of a magazine that adapts to your likes and dislikes and learns to give you only the content you really want to read?

Dream no more: Zite is finally here.

Zite: Personalized Magazine for iPad from zite.com on Vimeo.

When you first open the app, Zite asks you for a few categories to start curating for you. It ranges from World News to Arts and Entertainment and Sports to more esoteric stuff like Humanities, Crafts or any kind of keyword you can think about.

The more you use Zite, the better it gets at predicting what you want to read about. By giving a rating (yes or no), you can tell it to look for more articles about the topic or to stop looking for them altogether. You can tell it to find more articles based on certain keywords, too. You can make your custom categories if the ones provided don’t fit your taste.

You can also easily share your favourite articles on Twitter or Facebook or save them to Read It Later or Instapaper. If you follow me at all on Twitter, you’ve probably noticed the links I’ve been sharing the past few days.

So, I’m totally in love with Zite. It’s an alternative to checking a bunch of RSS or news sites.

And you know what’s the best about it?

It’s free (or at least it was when I got it).
