- I don't think this needs an explanation. I'm an Android user and I use Product Hunt.Ongoing work by the PH team on the mobile web is slow and usually breaks as much as it fixes. A native app would be awesome
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.
- I'm currently using Evernote for my note-taking needs, but I hate the fact that it doesn't support Markdown. Bear would totally solve my needs in that regard, but I can only switch if it would also run on my Android phone. I need my notes everywhere :)
I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.
Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
I am using this app in every commutes. It has some handy features as the 'jump silences' in podcast that can make you win up to 5 min per podcast
I’ve seen several business card-like apps over the years. Ping is probably the best executed version of this, although it doesn’t quite meet my needs.
After entering someone’s email, it adds them as a contacts within the app; however, these contacts are only accessible on mobile (iPhone), housing only a small subset of people I know. I’m seeking a more comprehensive tool to use as a personal CRM of all the people I know, indexed, categorized, and easy to update. Ping isn’t that (yet!?) but for those looking to simply replace the business card exchange ritual, this is the best solution I’ve found.
Great contact tool that I remembered when I ran out of business cards at an event.
- This and Pennies are the two applications I'm still keeping my iPhone around for :( they have no equals
My favorite feature in Day One 2.0 is the daily prompt. Instead of letting my journal become the 'Rant of the day' entry, Day One attempts to help me create a rich and personal record with their creative prompts.
I bought the iOS app awhile ago, so I was on the grandfathered Plus plan. I wanted to sync with the Mac app, so I went ahead and bought the 50% discounted premium plan. I like it, but I thought the Mac app would have more formatting options than the iPhone. It doesn't. It's basically a larger version of the iOS app.
It's way too expensive if you're not on the plus plan. It's expensive even with the plus plan. You can't use iCloud for storage either, which I don't understand. Having cloud storage can be expensive for companies, so they increase the prices, but they removed iCloud sync, so now everyone uses their cloud storage.
- Duolingo is a great way to learn a language and with its groups feature, I think its a wonderful way to meet and compete against like minded people. But having a conversation in the language you learnt is what ultimately gives you the confidence and the bots help in that aspect.
- Perhaps the best health monitoring app I've used. I think @aprilzero and the team are launching an Android app soon
- Brian Woo made this productI've always wanted a tool for highlighting stuff on the internet since it's my life long habit. I've used Evernote and Pocket and everything together but it just didn't work out. So I've made this web highlighter myself and it became one of the major tools for me and a lot of people's workflow. It works seamlessly with Evernote, Pocket, and all sorts of tools. Take a look!
I've been using Spark since the very beginning. I was an original waitlist-starting user of Mailbox, and was excited to find spark almost immediately after Mailbox went extinct. This is the best email experience on every platform, and has a variety of productivity features that make it my go-to.
Ever since Mailbox became a graveyard app, I have been looking for a worthy replacement – and Spark is as close as it gets! The UI is clean, combining dark and light colors which helps with using the app; the side menu being dark while the rest of the UI has a white background makes you focus on the important stuff (the mail list and the mail in focus)!
It seems to be one of those apps I download, think is hilarious for a week then it looses its appeal as I realise I don't actually need to use it a lot. It's not necessarily meant as a 5x a day kind of app but I find myself not having opened it from the first week of downloading.
Can somebody please tell me why these aren't EVERYWHERE?! So cool.
Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions — all housed in a clean design.
Lately, I've noticed that Polymail is focusing more on biz dev and sales productivity with Polymail Pro. Understandable, with Sparrow and Mailbox being sold off and shut down. It's clear that email clients need to become profitable to survive. Unfortunately, I'm often pressured into features that I would never use via prompts and popups.
I have used Polymail for a couple of years now. I still notice a few small bugs around rendering emails, and the Read Later queue can break down if you have several threads saved. Still hoping these issues will be fixed soon. 🙏
Overall the app still functions great and is my daily email client.
I recently gave Polymail another try and it's indispensable now. Fast mailbox switching and read receipts are the killer features for me.
Love Polymail for the Mac, but the iOS app doesn't do it for me. When I'm on my phone, Inbox is my go-to.
- This is the most functional and visually appealing productivity app I have seen and, as a Windows/Android user, I drool in envy every time I see it. It's like standing outside a restaurant in the cold while looking through a window watching all those Apple users eat warm soup.
