Zite, an iPad app, personalized to you

Wednesday - 3/9/2011, 9:05am  ET

UNDATED - Do you ever get overwhelmed by the torrent of information online? A new iPad app called Zite is hoping to help.

The app uses information from your social networking accounts and your online reading habits to troll the web for stories you might be interested in, including news from sites you may never have visited, or even heard of, before, The Wall Street Journal reports.

That's where the app differs from others like it, forming a personalized magazine based on what you like to read, instead of just listing what your friends share online.
