- 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. 😊
Only 1–2 shows per day, and times may be inconvenient depending on your location.
They should show some sort of preview or have a tutorial / computer mode where you can play previous games.
The app itself is pretty nice and when it works, the experience is seamless.
Unfortunately, the games are frequently delayed and experience technical difficulties. Plus often you put the right answer but it doesn't register.
Also, the trivia questions are not very satisfying. Who cares what company
owns Waypoint? That's not an interesting piece of knowledge.
Also apparently the founder doesn't know how journalism works.
Would be great if there were more games each day and you could win different types of prizes. Like win an xbox, or Tesla, or $100,000.
Also, there are so many people commenting that it doesn't really make sense. Might be better to just show an explosion of multiple profile photos of the people that got a question right after the answer is given away.
When I played this game btw, I had about 4 other friends trying to help in order to win. Great word of mouth marketing established through that. Wonder if there is a way to gamify it with multiple friends within the app that way those "friends" wouldn't have to be in the same room as me, they could be helping me from their mobile app and incentivize them somehow.
The hosts are great so far! They are positive energy, say the right things, and engage the audience. I like when they mention twitter followers. I think you are on to something there from a marketing perspective but could def get more creative by shouting out influential players in the game and that have large followings or previously won games in the past. Lots you can do there.
Very impressed with the concept and execution. Well done.
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.
- I'm really surprised no one mentioned Station yet :)Station is awesome. I use it every day for work and at university. It keeps nearly all my important apps in one space.
I've been using Station since it's very beginning (9 months ago). I use it now on a daily basis.
As a designer, I have on my desktop my Sketch, and of course my Station. It centralize all my work (InVision, Slacks, Gmail, Notifications, Trello... 300+ apps already, so crazy!). So no need to switch between thousand of tabs on chrome, or to set up my work everything morning. I just open Station and eveything is there : what I missed, my new assignments... It just makes you way more productive.
Give it a try people and get Station now !
Having been a user of Franz for a long time now, I'm glad I found Station cause it has way more functionality :) Thank you for making this!
Although, I'm not sure on how I can mute particular apps from sending me notifications 🙃
EDIT 1: Multiple instances such as Twitter do not actually separate two accounts; if I log out of one, it logs out of the other.
P.S: I'll edit this review once I use it for a bit longer :)
I've been using it since the early alpha and just bought a copy now there's a paid release. It generates clean code for the fiddly business of animation so can save a huge amount of time fine-tuning code.
I've been anticipating this launch since the Alpha! I was in one of the beta groups several months back and really liked the product then, so I'm jacked to try it out now that it's launched. I've also been on their slack channel keeping tabs on their efforts to deliver a user-focused product that delivers results. This app will save designers a lot of time! I will say that the team building this product is an awesome group focused on users. Stoked to see it launch! Congrats.
I set it up within minutes. The google sheets integration is smooth. Sent out campaign to 300+ in one day with personalization and scheduling. The feature set is pretty expansive. Looking forward to use the Saleforce integration. If it works well, that would be epic! Very straightforward to use and measure success
Meanwhile I think an onboarding guide will really help after setting up the account. Somehow I missed it and had to spend a bit of time to understand how to setup my first campaign.
Used YAMM on and off for a few years now when a more personalised mail merge approach is required. Have used it on mailouts to several thousand people eg. for invites (all optin in case you were wondering).
The mail merging is great, the integration between sheets and Gmail is pretty straightforward and once you get into some of the dynamic stuff sheets can do, there's all sorts of ways of using it: custom links, attachments, event custom pre-filled forms.
It's pretty quick, too, even for sends with hundreds of email addresses. Downside is that you can get yourself in to trouble if you're not careful about making sure you're OK to send to those emails, especially when new stricter data protection rules are coming in across Europe and California. Make sure you've got permission to send and respect opt-outs!
Only niggle is that if I want to send multiple campaigns from the same spreadsheet, YAMM sometimes can't find the email addresses, even when following the instructions, but there's ways round this (duplicating the sheet), however it's sometimes useful to keep all the YAMM campaigns on a single sheet with different columns for each email sent.
Use YAMM for personal touch.
Use others eg. Mailchimp, etc for bulk emails.
In summary, excellent product, good support, well worth it.
- Antonis Tsagaris made this productThere'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!
Been using it with my friends for awhile now! Love how I can discover new and specific dishes at restaurants that I may have already gone to. Also gives prices and written reviews.
There are a lot of apps and websites out there that are trying to solve the "where should I eat" problem but Bite takes a very simple approach and nailed it.
I've been using Planyway for most of December and I love it. It shows me all of my cards from multiple boards in one clean, concise view. No more bouncing between board calendars (or sloppy IFTTT formulas) to keep my calendars & tasks in sync. (:
I spent over a year looking for an app that could do this. I had settled on Trello and been scheduling blocks of time on paper, when I found Planyway. The ease of drag and drop (re)scheduling and custom blocks of time was exactly what I wanted, and two-way sync with Google Calendar made those blocks of time visible and editable anywhere. Fantastic tool
- SportsMe is a an amazing sports conversation app, it just launched 2 weeks ago. It's like Musical.ly for sports,, and the design is really simple. Fans debate or talk about trending sports topics, other users vote who wins, they move up leaderboards and gain followers. Really cool idea, I was instantly hooked! Nothing else like it.
I am a news junkie and like reading news. But in the past few months, I find myself wondering if I am getting the whole picture. This product is helping solve a very big and timely problem - tech marketer, mother, advisor, MIT Sloan board member.
The Chrome extension helps me assess the quality and bias of news articles and find high-quality articles with alternative perspectives about news that interests. Can't wait to see how the product evolves!
- This app is very useful and effective, and provides an intuitive interface for document writing. I came across this app during my search for a blogging template to create rough draft posts, and I found that and much more! Everyone has used Word to create resumes before, so I had to take a look at the resume templates available. They were well-designed and easy to use. Plus, no in-app purchases. Everything was included for one small price. Definitely worth it.
I was really excited to use this but was kinda left disappointed by the end result. I dislike the current Powerpoint too. What I do is, I make presentation slides on Adobe Illustrator and animate them using after effects and then combine them. It gives me much more freedom but also a lot of extra work... I can see the animation scope in Imaginators but the user friendliness is kinda missing
