What's an app/product/tool you use that's totally free but you would be willing to pay for?

I find myself using a lot of free tools throughout the week. Some are free and easy to find replacements if they fold but others are not. Curious to hear what apps people are using and how much they would pay for the current free app.

Tweetdeck

Create a custom Twitter experience.

I CMD+TAB to Tweetdeck all day. For me, Twitter is 100x more useful with Tweetdeck. It makes it more accessible, faster than visiting the website, and tools like custom search columns (I read almost every tweet that mentions "Product Hunt") are incredibly useful. I'd pay $50/month if I had to. 😊

It's slowly turning into a full-featured finance app, but the ads just kill it. I can't stand looking at it. They should offer a premium subscription that strips away the cruft.

I paid them for a while, then Pinterest bought them and made everything free. Still worth paying for.

I've been using the free version of Grammarly for months and I paid for it now. Zero Regrets! Best editorial app ever! Works like a charm as a web editor, a chrome extension and as an add on in Microsoft Word! #GoGrammarly
