Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Tackles struggles that solopreneurs know well; allows keeping track of the bigger picture through goals; the onboarding bot is genius.

    Cons: 

    Nothing so far.

    I think that this app brings to the table a very different alternative in the task management sector, focusing on those who work alone and don't want to get distracted by team-driven features as it happens with tools like Asana and even Trello.

    Pros: 

    - All in one for solo "life" managers. - Hierarchy structure really well. - I like burndown chart, I think keep me effective.

    Cons: 

    - I think it will be really amazing product with better UI. Because this design seems like "basic and non-futuristic app".

    The idea and philosophy of Anstrom is powerful, but design (UI) isn't reflected too much. With a professional and clean UI, Angstrom will be one of the best project / life managers especially solo entrepreneurs.

Hello Friends! Angstrom is a passion project for me. When I started building it, I was trying to design a system to solve my own failings as a person. To help me be more effective in my own life. As it progressed it actually got good (IMO). So I decided that I would make it into a solid product. Many evening and weekends have been poured into it. I'm a one-man band. So naturally the product turned out to be for people like me. It's for your personal use, not for your team. A few people that have used it, compare it to a Monday.com for individuals. Monday.com is an amazing product so I can't but be flattered by the comparison. I already have paying customers, which blows my mind. I have to thank the indiehackers.com community for their support / guidance and for being my first customers! More than anything, what I really want from this launch on Product Hunt is feedback. I want to make Angstrom into a great product and the only way to do that is if I get independent critical feedback. Please don't hesitate to ask my anything! Thank you so much! Kelvin

@kelvinangstrom Looks great. I'll take it out for a spin. Congrats for the release. When are the apps expected on mobile?

Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
@vladimiroane Thanks Vladimir! Please do. It's a huge relief to release it. At the moment it's a PWA so you can add it to your home screen and it will act like an app. Once I understand what people would really like in the mobile version I'll start on them. I'm looking forward to doing that. I've started on the desktop apps. Windows, Mac and Linux. I'm using the Mac one myself at the moment but there is still quite a bit of work to do.

@kelvinangstrom in the verbiage for the lifetime account, the second line reads "Access to all current functionality". Is this implying that any updates or roadmap items are not going to be available to early adopters on the lifetime plan? That would be an odd and disappointing tactic for a newly launching SAAS. Absolutely loved the onboarding btw.

@kelvinangstrom Looks like a nice product, even more as it is a solo project...I'm definitely boarding in...can you please explain the "Access to all current functionality" line in the lifetime plan? Sorry, but...it scares me a lot!

@tommi_tallgren Thanks Tommi! It has been a huge amount of fun building it. It's easier than ever for a solo founder to build something. If you have any questions let me know.

This thing is actually amazing! The onboarding bot was a lot of fun. Is the onboarding bot custom,or is there a service I could use to get the same thing?
Kelvin Angstrom
Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
Thanks Roveek! Sorry it's completely custom. I wanted to do something interesting rather than just the standard onboarding walkthrough that everyone skips by without actually looking at. The only thing that I wanted to get across with the onboarding were the key concepts rather than telling people how to use the product, which I would hope are fairly self-explanatory.

@kelvinangstrom would be cool to be able to quit onboarding an revisit it later ;)
Kelvin Angstrom
Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
@malczak did it bother you that much? ;) If it did I will definitely consider building that functionality.
Matt
Matt@malczak · Software craftsman
@kelvinangstrom A bit yes. It is a cool feature but after some time I just wanted to start playing around with the app. I have shared link with a friend and got a similar feedback 'how to skip onboarding'.
Kelvin Angstrom
Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
@malczak Well that settle it then. I'll need to do something about it. Thanks for sharing with your friend!! :) Beyond the onboarding, what did you think of it?

This is very good. I've been annoyed by all collaboration features when looking at any management tool. I like this product that introduces zero collaboration as a concept. And it is a good insight that it'd be enabled to integrate user's career parts and personal parts because it has eliminated the collaboration part, and the attempt to actively use the insight is also impressive. One thing I am sorry about is pricing. Is not there a monthly payment in the plan? (I ask because I have no money.)

Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
@sungho Thank you for your thoughtful comment. Really appreciate it. My initial heading on the website was "Absolutely zero collaboration project management" because I did think that it was a strong differentiator and not having collaboration can be a plus in some circumstances. You won't ever fear that you might accidentally share your private life goals. Did you have a look at the Ambassador plan? You can get all the features for free if you share with others.

@sungho @kelvinangstrom Yeah, and I dissuaded you from using that value prop, lol. I thought that one was pretty unclear for understanding what the product was about at a glance. Maybe it was a wrong call?

Very nice! Current lifetime offer includes future updates / functions or is ther upsells down the road? Don't have time to check everything and if it fits but I like what I see. As a one man show I feel at home. Congratulations!!

Kelvin AngstromMakerPro@kelvinangstrom
@ajoscoa Thanks António! Really good question and something I have had a few emails about today. Which means I did a really bad job explaining it. You will always get all of the functionality that the $49 / year subscribers get. In the future (and this is probably not going to happen), there might be "super premium features" like one-on-one coaching or a real human reviewing your goals with you, that won't be included to lifetime or yearly subscribers. They would separate one-off payments.

@kelvinangstrom few suggestions: - monthly recurring feature or maybe a more flexible way to implement it - disable / enable levels from the backlog. It doesn't make much sense to me having milestones and life goals mixed up with tasks on that kanban. Same for priority.. for me would make sense tasks in kanban and projects in priority. It would be nice to choose. - a calendar of schedule tasks and a timeline would be another nice features. - It would be nice to have some feature to export a data backup Overall you did a fantastic job. Amazing what you did alone. Super kudos to you man! It
