Product Hunt Weekly Digest

BEST products of the year so far ๐Ÿ†
This past monthย was filled with hundreds of product launches, from companies big and small. Y Combinator launched their free online Startup School, Stripe launched a toolkit to create, control, and distribute physical prepaid cards, and you too can Make OS X Great Again. ๐ŸŽ

Tools built for Product Hunters are all the rage:
๐Ÿ” Preview Hunt lets you preview your post page before launch
๐Ÿšซ Hunted or Nah is an extension that checks if a site has been hunted
โœ”๏ธ We launched Makers, an online community to help you get stuff done

And if you're feeling nostalgic about what technology was like a long time ago, check out the Best of January, February, March, April, May, or June.

As for the the most upvoted product of the year, it's a close race between Robinhood's cryptocurrency trading platform, Google's slightly creepy AI that can schedule restaurant reservations, and a magical organization tool from a small startup here in San Francisco. ๐Ÿ‘€

HIGHLIGHT
Last week, Slack swallowed their biggest competitor: HipChat.

Instead of attempting to compete with Slack, an estimated $5B behemoth in the office communication space, parent company Atlassian agreed to:
  • discontinue HipChat and Stride, their inter-company messaging tools, and sell all related intellectual property to Slack.
  • help all HipChat users transition over to Slack.
  • invest a "small but symbolically important" in Slack.
Slack, in return, will more deeply integrate Atlassian's other products, like task-management tool Trello and bug-tracker JIRA.

Even if you've never tried Slack (or spend all day in it), we've compiled a list of the community's favorite Slack Bots, or apps that live inside Slack, just for you:

๐ŸŽจ Make your Slack pretty with custom, with Slack Themes
๐Ÿ’Œ Crush your inbox directly inside Slack, with Astrobot for Slack
