Zite is nearly perfect

I've been using Zite for about a week now. As a custom ezine it excels in formatting and basic design. I like the ability to rate articles which will serve up more articles like it. You can also like authors too, if you want to follow someone and their beat. Multiple font size adjustments and some customization features are nice, because usually Zite serves up the most popular content. I also like how it handles category selection from a slide out menu. Nice design selection.
On the downside, Zite said it couldn't pull enough from my Twitter account, which I found hard to believe with 1,400 followers and 900 following. Instead of channels like Flipboard it has subject areas plus you can customize your own subjects like San Francisco and Boston, the two I added (but no Bay Area category). But I wish you could add channels as well.
Still, Zite will give Flipboard some competition. I just wish there were an iPhone version.
