@lluis_m_ventura Hello Lluís, I like the idea behind this. But would you share some clarification? Am I going to share and manage links to whatever I want easy access to? Or is this a deep integration into the tools and gets actual data that I need onto a page? Thank you

Hi @sumitdatta! The idea behind TinyPods is to act as a container for all the information related with an idea or topic, with links, notes that you can take on TinyPods, etc... When writing an email or during a meeting (or when you needed) or when writing some docs, tinyPods will suggest you related content based on those pods and integrations to help you be in context. So I guess the answer lies just in between!

VOTEism The 🦠Corona Virus has us all semi-permanently burrowed. Everything that can is moving online. Why not democratic elections??? OK. That's a stretch for now. Let's fix opinion polls first. Current political opinion polls are riddled with low sample sizes, interviewer biases, push poll tactics, self voting sock-puppets, and worst of all, the lack of privacy. 🤥 ⏱️ Time to change that. 🎬 Introducing VOTEism - The Political Opinion Poll App. VOTEism is the Occam's razor of political opinion polls 🤔. You just tap and confirm your preferred candidate. Your vote is encrypted 🔏 and stored from prying eyes. The encrypted votes are downloaded and decrypted with a private key on an air-gapped system. The aggregated results are available for everyone to see in the VOTEism app. 🇺🇸 VOTEism is available in USA only for the 2020 USA Presidential Election. Looking for the initial set of users to vote and validate VOTEism. iOS: https://ios.voteism.org Android: https://android.voteism.org

@amaraangelini Hello Amara, I am personally interested in software driven democracy and the tooling around this. This is a hard topic that is needed, yet will take time to settle in. I glanced through your site, looks good, neat and documentation heavy. This is a great start but IMHO you need to target groups that have less bureaucracy when it comes to elections. Universities are perhaps a great start. Managements of public service companies where board members are elected. That would bring the barrier to entry to an easier level and would increase adoption. Also, you get to experiment with the user interaction. This is a needed tool but not clearly an urgency to the concerned people. So you will have to do some thought-leadership marketing. Everything from blogs to a podcast on why transparent and all-hands elections are important, why your app can help more voters have access to elections. But all this is not going to be useful if VOTEism is limited to the 2020 USA Presidential Election. Perhaps that is way to get better results. I am not a citizen there so I do not know how and why. But I do know that software driven democratic machinery is going to be big in the next years to come.

@sumitdatta, brilliant points. We started VOTEism as a secure and private political opinion poll app. But we want to seed the discussion to something bigger - like the software driven democracy you mentioned. There's nothing to limit VOTEism to the 2020 USA Presidential Election. We have the backend flexible enough to adapt it to a complex democracy like India (our team includes brilliant data scientists from India). We would like to involve universities and academicians and are currently in talks with a group at an ivy league. Any pointers in this direction would be helpful. You can reach me at voteism/at/protonmail.com. Thanks again for your reply. It's good to see people interested in this direction. Imagine if we could vote for our leaders every day instead of once in 4/5 years!!!

Wow. This is a great thread. ProductHunt has gone from launch (Hunt) to pre-launch (Upcoming) and now to pre-pre-launch (this) :-D They almost read my mind We are working on Lightcat - a tool for Product Teams that is a cross breed between Smart Docs like Notion, and Kanban boards, with a way to record all metrics that move due to a feature release. This is what Lightcat helps product teams do 1. 💡 Write the feature ideas (eg. in a Smart Document ) 2. 💪 Prioritise the ideas (ideally *within* the same Smart Doc) 3. 🚀 Track the progress (eg in a Kanban Board) 4. 🔥 Measure the impact of EACH idea (eg a Tableau graph) Bonus : it's in a fast, stunning UI. Double Bonus : We have some top PM's beta testing our product. Would love for some of you guys to join the beta.

@kush_apoorva This would seem to be a nice way to approach, I guess you are taking PM and BP documentation together. When it comes to speed, I feel Clubhouse is ruling at this moment. Their app is lightning fast. I switched to it for my own needs.
Contrarian Maker
@sumitdatta Clubhouse is great indeed. It's also a JIRA replacement - task management / bug tracking. We are targeting the Product Planning and Feature Prioritisation space. A bit like ProductBoard, Canny etc. So yes, PM and BP documentation is pretty central to us. Clubhouse's speed really comes from dynamic bindings. Everything happens on the client side first - you see the changes instantly - and they update the server behind the scenes. LightCat is built on the exact same principles. That's why it feels fast.

Hi Makers I've done some work to the song sharing site https://www.onmydeck.com over the weekend. The aim of the site is for people to have fun sharing their current favourite songs and we give every song a social page in return. I'd love some tester/user feedback. It's completely free to use - you don't need an account to post your favourite songs but if you do sign up you can build your list of ultimate songs as well as comment/like/follow people. Changes: - You can now see song lyrics on your posts (where available) - YouTube videos now show on the songs posted with a better match rate - Open the song on your favourite app with Spotify and Soundcloud links (Apple Music coming soon!) - Release date of the song is shown now where available Coming up: - Apple Music links on songs - Fun song facts on each song
Hi Makers! We're close to launching our health app and now working to collect feedback and wishes from our potential users. Our main goal is to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention. Our goal is ambitious, and resources are limited. So we're building our first MVP which can allow our users to: - upload or add medical test results. This medical record will work and analyze records, our users can visualize test results and easily track their medical data (health data is always anonymized before being used for analysis). - pass health quizzes. For our MVP version, we took surveys which already passed the clinical trial tests and showed an accurate prediction. - find a lab and order some medical tests to check the health state (just for some market). Got one questions: 1. Could you think of something you want to see in such medical records? I've got from some of our subscribers what they would love to get notification about passing medical check-ups if they are close to the lab. 2. I’m looking for beta users, so in case you’re interested, you’re more than welcome. Feel free to contact me! Here it is: https://www.producthunt.com/upco... If you want me to check your product, you’re also welcome. Cheers!

Environmentalist | Founder @Carbonly 🌿
@yves_hoppe Great idea! For quick feature feedback, it appears like your landing page dashboard could be a bit dizzying if you see it every time you use the app so maybe less colours/graphs? Just an idea. But overall, I have to say great idea and even better implementation! The Demo-like images on your landing page help illustrate your idea very well! You've probably already considered this, but it would helpful to have timers/notifications to keep track on all your tasks. The only thing I'm slightly concerned is that your name by itself doesn't really communicate what your platform does, which may make it hard for early users to recall what 'Empoche' was for. Anyways, keep up the great work!

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
@oliver_carmont awesome, Thank you so much for your feedback! Totally agree with the dashboard and chart colors, but having a hard time coming up with a nice solution, as there are so many application categories. And the colors try to transport the message how "productive" the category is (e.g. business blue, gaming / netflix red and so on). By the way you can customize the colors in the settings. More visible timers would be great, didn't think on it, but you are right it's obvious. Currently trying to figure out were to place them in the interface without even more clutter. Maybe in a tray icon / dropdown. For the name, I agree with you "Empoche" is not communicating what it does. But honestly it's not even to easy to describe what it the app does in one sentence (E.g. time tracking, not only of tasks but also PC apps, task management, team support etc.). But maybe it's just me as non-native speaker ;)

Hey Makers! I was building a minimal casual chess app, and finally launched it: https://www.producthunt.com/post... if there are any chess players among you - what do you think? What do you think could be improved? Or maybe any ideas for further development? Any feedback and especially criticism is welcome :)
Minimalist Engineer
Another question about the user experience is about moving the pieces. What do you prefer - drag pieces or click on a piece + click on a cell? Dragging requires less actions, while clicking allows to highlight valid moves.
It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
@zsergo Great work with the app. When I started it the first time I wondered why drag & drop is not working and nothing is happening. Maybe pre-select one of the pieces (for example 1.e4, 1.d4) and show the path so you realize what you are supposed to "do". Btw. you could still offer drag and drop and just highlight and limit the fields where the user could drop the piece to.
Share

@zsergo Love it. I like the fact that you can switch sides mid-game - very useful when you want to teach a beginner. I thought I would just check it out quick - but I spent like 30min in it 😀 And I got used to 'click on a cell' pretty quickly - so I think that's sufficient. The design is also beautiful. I think it is a great little chess app.
is building MetaMe
@zsergo As a chess player I think the clicking on piece + click on cell interaction is not as intuitive as dragging on dropping. Dragging also seems to be the standard on most chess playing platforms and programs I know of. Perhaps another possibility is to highlight valid moves as soon as a piece is touched or dragged?

Hello! I recently started a platform, Brand Genealogy to document stories of some of the iconic brands that we love today. When you read brand stories, you realise that brands are shaped by so many aspects, from sociological to psychological. You understand the motivations and thought processes of the people who started it, and weathered all the storms. The aim is simply to inspire people to do better, and learn from these brands. https://www.producthunt.com/post... Would love to get your feedback on it :)

@staneja88 Hey Shruti, this is a very useful product. Since this is content heavy I want to ask how is the content management working out? Are you happy with existing tools? My product is aimed very specifically at products where content is rich data. Thus I am curious about your workflow and tools.
@staneja88 I really like this. I'm torn tough about the length of the articles. I think, to me, it would be more interesting to have in-depth dissections of each brand story. Almost like an investigative journalism type story. With the highs and lows & struggles of each brand. All the twists and turns and "near death" experiences these companies had to go through until they became what they are today. That or a really quick overview. Almost like a bullet-point-list-profile-thing. To me the articles are too long to be just a quick, get the facts, kinda read. But too short to really learn all the interesting details. But maybe that's what you want. Just my quick opinion. Oh - and carousel posts on Instagram would probably work well to "lure" people in too. But I guess it all comes down to how much time you want to spend with his. :)

Storyteller, Le Weaver
@christoph_haase1 Thank you for the detailed feedback! I see where you're coming from, right now articles are an in between length. I want to communicate the stories as a narrative (with emotions, thought processes of why the brands did what they did, the external forces that influenced key decisions which then became the turning point). I can definitely add a little more structure to it. And yes, carousals sounds like a great idea. The interesting facts and an overview of the timeline can be added in the carousal for Instagram posts - which then "lure" the people in to the website to read the complete story. Appreciate the feedback :)

Hey friends, https://www.producthunt.com/upco... I'm looking to validate my startup idea - basically built on the premise that traditional (Asian) education doesn't help develop life skills important for life and work, and parents are willing to pay (a bit) to fix this issue. We're hoping to build an EdTech platform to address this - with content that describes what skills may be important, with opportunities to practice this and get feedback. I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in such a product? We know there is a need - talked to many HR managers and they have all unanimously decided that this is important. The problems is, I'm unsure if parents would buy into this product. Appreciate any/all feedback and support. Trying to find product-market fit. Thanks, guys!

In addition, many time tracking apps are designed for timesheeting or employee surveillance and monitoring. This doesn't exactly spark joy and excitement. I built MetaMe to be fun and easy to use for everyone, kind of like a fitbit for monitoring and improving their productivity.

Hello everyone, I am working on a core business challenge that affect a lot of early stage companies and would love to hear your thoughts. Businesses constantly invest in building internal tools to manage their core data - Customers, Payments, Shipments, Registrations (multi step onboarding), Verification, Moderation, Content management, etc. These problems affect *literally every software/data driven business*, particularly B2B. I am working on dwata to solve these issues. I have vast experience in building internal tools (or admins) for many startups over 14 years. dwata works with *any relational DB*, gives you CRUD (Create/Read/Update/Delete), custom actions (`Mark user as Seller` for example) and plugs into your existing backend with APIs. Built in team documentation, advanced visual queries (no SQL knowledge), etc. **Looking for** - I am looking for startups who are planning to build admin on Django/Rails/Laravel/Express/etc. Internal tools cost time/money and are not directly related to your customer facing product. You can eliminate that cost and speed up product development. Since dwata is in early stages, I am happy to provide more attention to things that block you. Thank you so much, Cheers!
Physicist & Spaghetti Code Aficionado
@sumitdatta Hey Sumit, I'm actually in the boat your talking about: building internal tools as a startup, but we don't use relational DBs. I don't really see the value in getting a CRUD around a DB unless your DB schema is really complex though. It wouldn't actually take very long to setup your own server to wrap the DB. I guess the main value lies in the other offerings you have, but I can't really speak to those since I'm coming from a developer perspective where a visual query probably isn't of much use to me.

@dgorski Hey David! Nice points. Support for MongoDB is coming soon. There will also be support for even time-series data at some point. What internal tools are you building? Yes you are right that perspective varies if you are a developer, but usually a medium sized company has <10% developers. So there is a large gap.
