Company Summary

Snackr is a mobile platform that is like Siri if she were your own personal news anchor. It’s Pandora for audio news. Snackr tells you the news that's important to you, all in "bite-size." But it's not just about Syria and elections. Snackr is about you. Your life is what is news to you—your friends’ birthdays, weather in your area, sports scores from your favorite teams, horoscopes and more.
