Thanks @erictwillis for the Hunt! We're huge fans of Stackshare.io so if you're looking for developer tools/services check them out! I'll keep this short and sweet: There's so many startups today that it can be difficult and overwhelming to find the best ones. We built OnBoard as a place to discover the best startups in each category and see who else is using them. Creating a Board is a great way to share the startups you use and show off your work flow/preferences. Currently opening beta access to all ProductHunters! We'd love to hear your feedback onboardstartup@gmail.com :)
@taylordcheng Looks good! Just signed up! So what's the difference between this and Stackshare? What's the vision behind Onboard?
@d4nyll Awesome! Thanks for signing up. To answer your question: the core difference is that Stackshare is centered around the tools companies are using, while OnBoard helps you see the services people are using. We've received a lot of positive feedback on the 'Boards' feature because it shows you which tools are being used by actual people. The startup category can feel cluttered with so many new tools & services launching overnight. The vision is to help organize and make it easier to find the useful ones.
Is it wrong that I get offensive that it looks a lot like product hunt? I love using stackshare.io and this seems like a cross between angelist and stackshare.io. Would love to know what you think uniquely differentiates onboard from those two companies. Great UI though, obviously! :)
@alanaut24 Thanks Alan for your feedback and glad you like the UI - we're avid reddit, ProductHunt and HackerNews users so some of our UI was inspired by these sites. We experimented with a grid layout, but switched to list format based on user feedback. We love using Stackshare too. Its a great platform to find the tools businesses use. We're heavily focused on people and the startups they're using to power their daily workflow. If you have any other feedback, I'd love to chat :) - email above.
Wow, best resource site ever!
Hey @taylordcheng I can't seem to find you guys. Did you change your name? Hoping to check you out. :)
