RIP Google Docs ⚰️
52 Productivity Tools to Try
Once upon a time Microsoft Word and Excel dominated CRT-lit desktops of offices around the world. While still great tools, cloud-based apps like Google Docs and Sheets ate into Microsoft's market share. Today, newer entrants are looking to eat Google's lunch too.

Here are a few productivity-focused startups competing with the two giant incumbents:

📊 Airtable: A tool with nearly limitless functionality. We're seeing more and more startups transitioning their documents over to Airtable.

🔥 Coda: Two Google alums raised $60M (!!!) to build this Excel-killer for the modern worker, receiving 4k+ upvotes. LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman is joining the Board.

☁️ Quip Live Apps: The community favorite cloud word processor launched Live Apps earlier this year, letting teams build powerful spreadsheets and workflows directly in Quip.

📝 NoteJoy: Early employees from SurveyMonkey and LinkedIn launched NoteJoy to help streamline the way your team organizes documents. It's beauuutiful.
