Trapit Delivers Personalised News And Articles

New web app Trapit adds the topics that interest you to your “traps” to bring you fresh news and other articles. Trapit is like personalised news reader Zite for iPad, except it’s more universal because it’s accessible in any browser.

You can add traps for a wide range of topic types and categories, from tattoos and birding to SOPA and PIP breast implants (surprisingly, a topic trending on Trapit). Thumb up or down an article to teach Trapit what you like to read.

Trapit displays stories in a visual grid by default or an optional list view. You can easily send articles to read later into a reading list or share articles via email or Twitter, Facebook or Google+.

All in, this personalised newsreader may become your best weapon for managing rss feeds overload.

  • Another big difference between Trapit and Zite is the range of topics they cover. Trapit can recommend content in very niche areas, while Zite has a select few topics. Trapit searches for content on any topic, although it may not be able to find anything if you give it a topic like “web startups in antartica.” Zite does not give the option of following such niche topics.
