Looking for apps launched in 2017, now fairly big (few million users, maybe top 300 ranking overall etc. Hq Trivia & Yarn are two I can think of.

    I see hundreds of consumer apps every month and truthfully very few of them feel fresh and new. HQ feels different and one of the best examples of tech elevating traditional TV entertainment. Truthfully, I have a lot of skepticism about its longevity but it's early and I'm sure @rus and team have some surprises. 😊

    Breaker is a podcast app with a social layer that opens up a new window to discovery. It’s kind of like what the podcast section of Product Hunt would have looked like if it was an app.

    Shows with Music, from Anchor & Spotify

    Combine your talk segments with music and share to Spotify.

    I’m not completely sure this launched in 2017... but whatever, this definitely revolutionized my podcast habits! It’s also super easy to record your own audio and share your thoughts with the world... a vocal Twitter, sort of.

    There's Twitter for micro-blogging, right? Why shouldn't there be an app for micro-podcasting? Think about it. Record three-minute (max) segments and let other people comment on them, with a twist: any comment also has to be an audio recording. Step on your soapbox and speak your mind!

    Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
