    Product Hunt 4.0

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

    Kunal Bhatia50Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp Β· Written
    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 "πŸ”— 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.

    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.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

      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.

    Gmail... but better. Less clutter and (personally) helps organize emails easier.
    CommentsShare
    • I pretty much like all things Google, but Inbox just isn't for me. I much prefer good old fashioned Gmail on my iPhone. The way Inbox sorts my emails doesn't always make sense to me, and I suppose I'd rather sort it myself. There are definitely better email apps out there. I know because I've tried a bunch of them.

    • I like & hate inbox for the same features.

      ItΒ΄s the first time my Mailbox feels sorted and clean. That said Inbox dicards eamils as unimportant, doesn't show notifications for all emails and shows how much it knows about my friends, travel agrangements and so on.

      I do think a manual hosted version would be really great but I doubt we will see something soon.

      In the end its a Google Product which means no updates and in 2 years we get the next version of it. It lacks a lot of things you can't do with it. For instance multiple Accounts, S/MIME encryption and ways to highlight a lot more.

    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.
