    Product Hunt 4.0

    Now with Reviews, Badges, Web Links, and more ✨

    Technically, I shut off my alarm and close Headspace first. Right after that, I open up Product Hunt on mobile web. I like to see the board fresh (very little activity) so I can understand the value prop of each product I look at. I almost "play" this like a game.

      Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?

      This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.

      The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "🔗 Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.

    It really REALLY bothers me when there's an unread story. I. Must. Open. All. The. Stories. Now that they've pushed out an update that shows you that someone's shared a story that you haven't seen even as you scroll down your timeline...brb. Gotta check my feed.

      I think this is a necessary function nowadays, but I would like less advertising, maybe it's better to make a paid subscription, like youtube.

      This is the first and only app I pay for :D Sometimes it can feel like a chore to do stuff that is good for you and this app takes that away for me. I teaches you gently and pleasantly and Ive been able to stick to it and understand more about how minds work. It helped me stop biting my nails.

    I really like looking back at photos from this day however many years ago, it always brightens my day to see the things I have experienced with my friends and family, on the otherside a reminder of the dumb things I have said on twitter normally makes me cringe too!

      My reading and listening skills have improved so much since using Duolingo, I couldn't recommend it more. I'm not naive in thinking it will make it fluent as it's not the best for speaking skills but has vastly helped me improve and build up my language confidence.

    • Using Doulingo for a long time. It really helped me to improve my French. Recently began to study Swedish there. It helps to improve listening, writing and speaking skills at the same time. Love the approach to study, that's really funny and easy. You just make fun and the result is a new skill.

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    I wake up in the morning and spend the next hour addressing messages from teams I am in, hence why I always check the app before anything else.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

      It took me just 4 days to get used to it coming from traditional gmail desktop tool.

      But once I could manage the initial learn curve, it really improved my productivity specially with reminders, smart suggested answers and how it groups different kinds of emails automatically.

    I've been using Tweetbot for so long that it's just a habit by now, I don't even know how it compares to Twitter's own app anymore. However, I'm generally very happy with it. It's generally the last app I use before I go to sleep and the first one I check when I wake up.

    I'm trying to make myself avoid using any apps when I wake up. But I usually fail and open this one up to binge on the news.
    Synced to Feedly, and obsessed, for years. Simple, reliable. Just wish is allowed saving gifs to the camera roll without flattening them. (I can't find any feed reader that allows that.) Love it anyway.
