Why would you ever post something on HN that doesn't have screenshots or even more than a single sentence of information? No, I'm not going to sign up; I have zero idea what this site does!


A screenshot is on its way.



the screenshot is still not on the site... I'm with @nilved Why would I want to sign up for a site that applies so little thought to its users that it doesn't even feel they are worthy of / need any details on what the site does, and just expects people to sign up because you told them to.


We've just opened up the sign-up and we're now processing your feeds. Please bare with us.


I wish there would at least be screenshots.

For instance, I read a lot of webcomics through RSS feeds, this is a service I could use, but I would need to see how it looks like first.


Thanks for the comment, we'll post some screenshots in the following hour.


A demo would be nice. A message that tells you upfront that this doesn't work without importing stuff from Google Reader would be nice as well.

I've just created a new account and I'm stuck with the import screen. Now what?


We'll roll out a new round of invites in the following days.


Who cares about the invites? I already have an account and I can't use it. May I know why?

I have never seen HN comments sound more like a Customer Service script than this.

I believe his issue is that he doesn't have a Google Reader account to import from.


Not knowing what I'm signing up for is a deal breaker.


Here comes the screenshot! http://www.flickr.com/photos/andreirobu/9175528523/in/photos...

We'll roll out a new round of invites in the following days. Last chance to import your feeds from Google Reader. Grab your username.


How do I use this without importing from Google Reader?

It seems that there's no way to bypass the import screen.


I'm a first year CS student and I've been working on a very similar app as a pet project.

I've thought this was a great idea for a while now and I really like your execution. Cool name, nice design. Congrats on launching.


Thank you Chris!


Seems interesting for designers or for photographers who mainly subscribe to image centric content.

It definitely deserves more up-votes!


Let's try and see how it works.


Looks good - thanks for the tip


seems interesting
