Are you a fan of RSS readers? From Feedly to Reeder, I tried them all. However, the major problem that they possess is that they are extremely demanding. You miss one day of checking them, and your 'unread' count jumps to 560.

When Zite appeared in my Apple Store, I decided to give it a shot. Zite claims to be an intelligent magazine that helps you discover interesting things to read. As easy as that. Using Zite for work-related updates, I filled it with areas I wanted to focus on, either keywords, interests, or websites (e.g. thefourohfive.com, NME.com, cute sloths, Chvrches). Not only does it draw from the websites you love and are subscribed to, but also browses different sources that match your criteria - whether you want recipe ideas, the latest political news or the latest Kanye West interview.

My favourite function allows you to star new topics related to the articles/videos/pictures you are browsing. By swiping the headline, you give a thumb up, or down. Not a fan of 'Which Animals Are Happiest about Bathtime?' - just swipe it down: Zite learns what you like and gets smarter as you use it.

Finally, Zite's design is clean and simple - a key feature for me. Zite is available for both iOs and Android.
