Zite, the popular personalized news magazine for iPad, has just received a significant update. This new update includes the addition of multiple profiles. Code-named Sybil, the new feature makes it simple for anyone in a family to share Zite with each getting his or her own custom-made news experience.
Zite’s main feature is “learning” what the user wants to read about, and will customize articles and other content presented based on these learned preferences.Zite’s latest update also supports the following:
1. Source blocking – Users can now block content from unwanted sources
2. Native Twitter integration – With iOS 5?s native twitter integration, Zite will no longer ask for Twitter credentials a new
3. Performance enhancements – Zite is now faster, and speed improvements are more noticeable with the first-generation iPad.
Zite found in a survey of more than 330 iPad users that one-third share their iPads with a group of people. We’ve seen similar evidence that iPads are shared devices, with one study finding that even users living alone share their Apple tablets with other family members. Zite found that of those who share their devices, two-thirds share with one other individual, while a quarter share it with two others.
Other recent improvements made by the Zite team include the ability to block specific sources entirely to no longer see their articles, as well as Twitter integration for iOS 5 devices, which allows you to automatically link Zite to your Twitter account. With the addition of Sybil, Zite is definitely making a strong play for the personalized news app crown.
Today the social network Twitter has launched a blog dedicated to all-things Twitter in the UK.
Twitter has been making way into the UK and Europe over the past six months, with its first Europe-based employee announced back in May, and UK-specific promoted trends, tweets and accounts .
“From chefs to designers, from museums to the Downing Street Cat, there are more than 100 million people around the world using Twitter to follow their interests and instantly share ideas and information. To kick off our UK blog, we want to highlight a few of our favourites here at home.”
It will be tying in Twitter with key events, and demonstrating how it can be used to follow people from across different disciplines. This is all part of Twitter’s drive to open up the microblog and make it relevant to everyone.
“All of the UK police forces are on Twitter, including @metpoliceUK in London, @GMpolice in Manchester, @HantsPolice in Hampshire and @WMpolice in the West Midlands.”
We’ll start to see a big push from Twitter in the coming months, as it attempts to open up to more users, and it’s compiling lists that focus on different interest areas, much in the same way as it has done on its main Twitter blog.
Twitter is now available in five new languages including both Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Hindi, Tagalog and Malay. These new choices join the 12 other languages that Twitter had already supported. This brings the total number of languages Twitter is available in to 17.
Like many other online services, Twitter is mostly relying on volunteers for translation. To join in, head on over to Twitter’s translation center.
Twitter uses a crowd-sourced translation that uses 290,000 volunteers to translate Twitter.com as well as support pages and Twitter apps.
You can change your language preference for Twitter by going to your Settings page at Twitter.com after logging in and selecting a language there. Once you hit save all of the portions of Twitter that aren’t Tweets should be more familiar to you.
The folks at Twitter also announced that six new languages are coming to the Translation Center soon: Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian.
