Vancouver-Born Mobile App Zite Finally Comes to Android

Vancouver-born startup Zite, a mobile app acquired by CNN for $20 million last September, has released a version for Google's Android platform. Zite was originally designed for the Apple iPad, then was added to the iPhone in December. This new Android app is compatible with both smartphones and tablets.

“We’ve been getting lots of requests for an Android version since our launch, and with hundreds of millions of devices in use, developing one was a no-brainer,” Zite said in a blog post.

Interestingly, the company took a jab at Android's fragmented, over-spread platform: “In the process of building the app, the Zite development team has learned to take into account the wide variance of devices and OS versions in the Android ecosystem—an issue that we’ve had to deal with much less on iOS.”
