If you're migrating from a standard newsreader, you can also import your subscriptions by uploading an OPML or XML file, or an exported ZIP file.

Why We Built SNATZ

As technology news consumers ourselves, we were unsatisfied with the existing options available. On the one hand, traditional RSS readers were overwhelming, leading to information overload; on the other, many personalized news services felt too narrow, focusing too much on one type of news. What if we could do one better, and create a service that delivered tech news covering a broader, yet still interesting, range of topics? The cherry on top: tailoring it to the individual reader.
