    "Create your own magazine"

    Zite is a magazine that suits with you. It tracks your interests from your GReader account or Twitter profile. There's no need to create a Zite account (recommendable though), but you'll have to grant access to that accounts if you want to fully enjoy it. After tracking your accounts, Zite will show a list of topics that you can choose among. Mark the ones you're interested in and you'll get articles related to that topics from thousands of reliable sources. Bear in mind that it doesn't integrate your nor your GReader account subscriptions nor your Twitter timeline. You can select topics, not the sources.

    However, Zite allows you to like/unlike articles. This info will be included in the algorithm to set your preferences. Thus, the more you read and like article, the most accurate it will become. All your topics will be displayed on a top bar. You can navigate through them just swiping left or right. Scroll down/up to check articles' list of each category. Tap on the one you're interested in, read it on an optimized reading-view, thumb up/down or share it. You can also read the article open your browser or change app font size.

    The main catch of this kind of magazines is that you cannot choose the sources, just the topics. Thus, it's not a RSS-like reader. Although the algorithm works for us, it would be great to choose manually what we want to read.

    No complaints regarding interface: good-looking layout, smoothly performance and ease of use. High recommendable.

    I cannot open because I changed my device. It asks me to login with my previous device. Very stupid even I cannot sign in with new account.

    Great app used it I the past. But won't open I my current phone. Lg V10. Can't log on can't sign up. Can't get past that screen at all. Would be 5 stars if I could use it.

    The app gives an error connecting to zite, and the associated web domain is down. I guess that this is a dead duck.

    An App. Without any unwanted fluff, only to be crippled and replaced by one of the most resource hungry and juvenile looking apps, namely clipboard in the existence of Android. Shameful
