Zite, the slick iPad news reader, gets user profiles for easier device sharing

Chances are, if there’s an iPad in your family, you share it among the different members. In fact, that lack of portability between people is part of what drove me away from my love of Android tablets and more toward the iPad. Zite, the magazine-styled reader app for the iPad, sees and understands that fact. Zite, if you’re not familiar, takes the things that you want to read from around the Internet and compiles them in an easy-to-browse format, similar to Flipboard but more focused on news without the social updates. The obvious problem here is that the things you want to read won’t necessarily be the same things that your significant other wants, but the lack of dedicated user accounts means that’s exactly how you have had to treat these apps until now.
