What is most important? Publishers copyright or the best user experience for readers? A fight over the iPad appZite poses an interesting dilemma.
I have for the last few weeks fallen in love withZite, a personalized news magazine for iPad. Zite promises to learn from my reading habits – and serves stories that should fit my special area of interest.
To be honest I have been amazed about the accuracy of Zite. I now use it every day to follow developments in digital media, my particular area of interest. And Zite really is able to serve up the most interesting stories to me, whatever source they may come from.
Add to this that the user experience is very elegant. Ads are stripped away and I am left with the core content: Text and photos. It even allows me to share the stories onTwitter or in other social media without leaving the application.
Within a few weeks Zite has become my most common way to catch up with developments within my area of interest.
