Back in December 2014, I wrote a quick post about the fact that Zite was closing down, and how you could migrate to Flipboard. Well, I’m guessing the retirement date for Zite is approaching, because they’re getting pretty pushy about encouraging people to migrate. “Migrate to Flipboard!” has been appearing as the first story every day for a few days now.
However they’ve also made the process a lot simpler than it was back in December. Click a link, login to your Flipboard account, done.
It’s a bit of a sad day, as I’ve really enjoyed using Zite and have discovered a lot of really interesting content using it. I know Flipboard’s been around for a while, so it’s not as if they’re new to what they do, but I’m hoping they manage to preserve the customisation of the feed that Zite allowed.
Bye bye Zite!
