- All-in-one project management software, and easy to use.All-in-one project management software, and easy to use. It's my one of the best discovery on PH.
HANDS DOWN 🙌🏼 THE BEST PRODUCTIVITY, ORGANISATION AND RESOURCE WORKSPACE myself or my team have ever touched 💯
We're huge advocates of Trello, power-users of Slack, data-hungry Google Sheet/Doc fanatics and unloyal downloaders of many productivity, Wiki, task management and organisation apps. With my CTO I often mused the idea of building an all-in-one workspace for internal use that sat as our Pandora's box of goodies ranging from development wiki's, onboarding information and branding resources all the way to task management, meeting notes and even time tracking - lo and behold I stumbled across this gem of an app.
We decided to run Notion for a week in tandem with Trello (for our highly-granular level project management) starting by spending an hour in the evening porting over info to populate a few spreadsheets, wikis etc. I also went ahead and threw personal pages up to trial it on an individual level. 📝Note: if you have a super high turnover of to-do's and an active team you won't find switching over from another app to be a lengthy process. After 6 years of managing a creative agency I reckon I have seen enough task management and organisation apps to last a lifetime, so take my thoughts here with that consideration.
After a week we drew the following conclusions:
⏱ We worked faster with Notion than we did with Trello, Evernote or even a physical whiteboard.
📦 Today I solely used Notion for the entire workday. This time last week I would have used Trello, Slack (sending meeting notes and memos), Google Sheets, Google Docs, the native OSX notes app and GithubWiki just to get my day ORGANISED!
📚 Managing client editorials, project budgets, to-do lists and even basic memos and planning has been a breeze. It's great as a lightweight CRM too.
🛠 We were more organised than ever before. It's great to have a knowledge base for our products, plans and company sitting right amongst our task management tools.
We have also been left wanting for nothing (👏🏼 Congrats, Notion team) but dreaming of a few things:
💵 Beefier finance organisation/support. Integrations with Quickbooks, Xero maybe? Make it easier to build budgets and organise our money plans!
🗣 Room to annotate and collaborate on images/PDF's etc.
🔐 Function to lock pages so you can't edit, and the little hover tooltip to edit doesn't show up.
🎨 Integration with design apps - Sketch, UXPin, etc. Many many many creatives will use this app and be left wanting in this area. Think: a creative agency collabs, annotates, refines, develops and more...keep them in Notion.
The TLDR: Notion 2.0 kicks a** and we'll be using it for a long long time in place of a myriad of other productivity apps and tools. You should too.
I want to move from Evernote (I am a premium subscriber) to Notion, I really do but I don't think Notion wants me to. Whatever I am about to say, I say it with nothing but respect for Notion and in the hopes that it will continue to improve at the same pace.
First, the good - Notion has the best note editing interface I've ever used. A close second might be OneNote (it's a high bar, mind you) and Bear. It combines the simplicity of Evernote or Markdown with the power of OneNote although, it is missing the ability to use handwriting and doesn't support iPad with Pencil just yet. When it does, it will be perfect. I also like that I can save code snippets. Why is this so hard for Evernote?
Notion 2's tables, boards and other updates are huge. While I'm sure the in-built kanban board is not as feature complete as Trello, it should be more than enough for most projects. Same for tables. Airtable has a bunch of really cool advanced features but for most use cases, tables within Notion are just fine. Notion is on the right path and I am sure these features will only improve.
Now for what I don't like - The price is definitely my number one complaint. I will happily pay for Notion when it can do everything that other apps can. Until then, why not let me stay connected to the product with a cheaper paid plan or a better free tier? I pay for Evernote but if I were to consider switching, I can't do so purely because Notion doesn't do a bunch of things that Evernote can (even though it does a lot of things that Evernote doesn't) - Chrome extension to clip articles, emails, images etc., powerful mobile app with business card and document scanning, iPad support etc.
At $8 a month, it is more expensive than G Suite on a per-user basis. Why not give me 100 - 200 free blocks per month? Let me grow to love it. Let me build a workflow around it. Give me some incentive to tell my friends about it. When you have the features I want (I'm sure you're working on it), let me pay for it.
Price aside, I would also like to see how Notion fairs for quick note-taking, It's designed to be a wiki-style product and I get that but I'm sure a LOT of people are using it for personal notes. I use Evernote to save one-line notes - phone numbers, quotes, URLs etc. Notion's wiki-style UX is too heavy duty for that kind of use. It would be really cool if there was a "scratchpad" or "quick notes" feature that was not as heavy duty. For these simpler notes, I don't want to organize them into pages, I just want to save them and may be tag them. Which brings me to another feature I could really use - tags. Why limit users to only folders? Why not allow users to just tag notes?
I could go on but ultimately, I won't be switching to Notion right now, even though I really want to. Cost is too prohibitive but I'm sure I'll be on the hunt for future updates.
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.
- 39The referral campaign of Viral Loops was one of the most effective channels. Viral Loops is awesome, especially since it has a super diversified stack of campaign templates. The campaign was easy to set up, and customer support exceeded our expectations. Great product, great people!
Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.
Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

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 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 !
I've actually used Unsplash a little longer than a year, but a "1 Year" button is all that's available to select on Product Hunt. Unsplash gets more new stock photos to use all the time, which is a great thing. Other than the search engine needing keyword updates, this is great for all bloggers, writers, designers, and so on.
Unsplash is an amazing resource. When I started designing/developing purchasing expensive stock photos was one of the only ways of consistently getting images to use in design/web projects.
With Unsplash and Pexels, etc. though now I have access to an almost unlimited library of images. I've used Unsplash for projects all the way from mobile apps, websites, to billboard advertisements. Best part is I can just sent my clients the link and they can browse through the images themselves and send me the ones they like.
Overall an AWESOME resource. There are some minor annoyances like the addition of features that I feel just add clutter and don't add to the core value proposition (but that may just be me, and I won't name them so you can form your own opinion). My FAVORITE feature though is where they suggest giving the photographer credit - SO important and underrated.
When you have people providing as awesome resource as this it's only fair to thank them. Unsplash is a fantastic site and I highly recommend it to everyone... My one gripe is that I don't think they need to keep adding features.
- Appocalypsis offers a tone of options in building your widgets and an awesome support to create your custom ones.
Very useful tool that saves you a lot of time while preparing for a pre-launch. I would especially recommend it to start that are on a budget or just don't have a big team that would be fully dedicated.
Widgetize the web is our moto. No more custom development. We just place the snippet in GTM and we keep changing the widgets every week. They became part of our marketing strategy.
The coolest thing about Earn.com for me is the ability to donate to charities I want to support. I complete tasks and answer most message from Earn.com lists, then redirect the earned funds to charities and orgs! Love it. :)
I've made about $100 by reading about new ICOs, yet when I try to withdraw, I get a message that my account is suspended, I get logged out.
I can log back in again and use the system though.
I have written messages in the internal chat, on Facebook and twitter and not a single reply. I get a feeling that this whole thing is a scam!
Has anyone got any payouts from them?
Seeing how Airtable has progressed since it first launched is quite impressive. My only qualm with the application is the level of effort one has to put in to get a project setup. After spending a couple hours trying to set something up I ended up giving up and setting up someting in sheets using formulas in 30 minutes.
I have just started using it, so I'm still getting proficient at it. So far, I'm in love. I had been digging for a tool to help me with content management and strategy, and I couldn't be happier with what Airtable lets me do.
I have this app launched almost all the time and reaching out for it for any ad-hoc calculation needs. I love how forgiving the input is allowing me to mix text and numbers and still get the right result. One of my essential tools.
Love every bit. From simple design to the capabilities that it has. I generally travel around and inbuilt currency converter comes in very handy. The latest build is awesome where it lets me save and retrieve the files on need basis.
Such a huuuuuuuge fan! I use RealtimeBoard for so many things - both in and out of work. From client projects to internal business planning to operation processes to personal planning, I can't stop raving about how much I love RTB to everyone I know. I'm also super impressed by the constant product iterations and feature updates that are constantly being released. Bravo, awesome work guys, I'm absolutely gushing but it's well deserved.
For me, Realtime Board has beautifully united:
+ loose sticky notes
+ 3M's sticky notes scanning app
+ project management tools (Asana, Trello)
+ diagram tools (draw.io, Visio)
+ clipboard tools (Evernote, Google Keep)
Works wonderfully on a touch-screen Chromebook.
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.
- If you are a serial entrepreneur starting to look for an idea for your next startup, you are likely to want a way to stimulate your brain to come up with as many good ideas as possible. Coming up with a business idea is the first step in starting a business. But how do you come up with a business idea that is right for you? Starting a business must choose the right product. I suggest you to get yourself some high-tech products with full innovation. A few days ago, I learned a website “GLOBAL NEW UNIQUE” when reading news, specializing in collecting exclusive patented products that are full of innovation and high technology around the world when I read the news, such as smart and creative home appliance products, high-tech materials etc. I was too excited to say a word when I saw it. All of the products are extremely fun. I ordered a sample of a product named pocket cinema and took it to a party. All of my friends were attracted by it when I took it out, making me the focus on the party. All of my friends asked to buy it. I am now ready to start a business with this product. You can also go to the website http://www.nicenovelty.com , I bet it will not let you down and it will absolutely set off the trend.
