This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.

The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "🔗 Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.

Pros:

If used correctly, way more useful information about each product.

Cons:

Can be quite visually overwhelming initially. Also, the "website" link could stand out a bit more.

Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?

Pros:

Totally. It's interesting what Product Hunt has come to. People are now calling it the "Wikipedia of products" :)

Cons:

I hope to see an Android app. That's about it. 🙏

The site is looking and feeling a bit too feature rich to me

Pros:

I do like the new reviews section

Cons:

I feel like it's getting a little too feature rich, a bit complicated for a new user especially

The future of Product Hunt is pretty clear with these latest updates – a great place to go check out all the info you need for a product you're interested in, and a fantastic way to discover new products too. Awesome stuff, PH team! 🎉

Pros:

Takes profiles from being a short-term launch page to a long-lasting centralised repo of product info.

Cons:

There's more information so there's more to scan, but I think this is just a result of the change – I'll get used to it.

The PH team is an awesome bunch, and they've built an incredible product.

❤️

Pros:

Quick access to everything about a product (reviews, product info, jobs, news) in one place!!

Cons:

Like others, I'll echo the sentiment that product pages do feel a tad bit overwhelming.

Open reviews bring more objectivity into what excites us into a product. It is like a quick NPS though not a replacement of strategically planned NPS.

Discussions have always been healthy - direct and friendly.

Jobs are a welcome add, plus the contextually related product.

I am not sure what else a startup needs to share/announce when they launch (Lets not drag the teams, metrics, pitch decks, and rounds so fast. AL handles that pretty well as of now).

PS: I had shared my detailed thoughts in *early access* message. :)

Pros:

ProductHunt is turning out to be a liittle wikipedia for startups - Objective reviews, jobs, web links, related products, open discussions.

Cons:

Too addictive, often a healthy morning tussle between my coffee, Medium, and ProductHunt. And my son!

As products get more sophisticated and complex, it can be great for EXISTING users and those familiar with the journey, but really hard for NOOBS. Think of how simple Facebook might have been when you first joined, but how complex it can be for an older person signing-up today.

The journey is an important component to contextual UX, and one of the hardest things to do is to replicate first-time experience.

Scott Belsky has a good post about this: https://chmln.co/2evqWJn and so does Julie Zhou: http://bit.ly/1VD1rDJ

Pros:

Great additional context for assessing tools

Cons:

Harder for new users to navigate

Not as useful as it once was. While it used to offer a large array of interesting and unique products, it has degraded since "the good old days" (only a year or two ago). Product Hunt used to truly only display a select few products, all of which are high quality, interesting and useful. Nowadays it is like reddit: not bad to burn some free time, but the golden nuggets are few and far between. Everyday I visit there is a trump meme website, a handful of shameful sites, launch pages for products that may never exist, and side project websites designed to exploit the PH community for a quick 2 week money grab. What used to be high quality curated content, is now a cluster F*%& of random websites. I still visit once a week to see the most upvoted content and see the few products per week worth my time, but unfortunately PH has lost its status of being a daily routine website I check every morning.

Pros:

Occasional useful or interesting products

Worth a visit once a week or two

Cons:

What used to be a quality curated list of products is now a garbage pile I have to sort myself

Half the listings are self promotional

Add a read badge, so i know I already looked at this one.

Also maybe add a feature that you can listen how to pronounce the name of the product/company.

Pros:

Best place to be on top on new products launching!

Cons:

This may exist already but I would love to see triggered events via Product Hunt. For example, if I am needing a new document management tool that integrates with Salesforce in the next few months, I would love to get notified on tools that fit my criterium directly from Product Hunt.

Pros:

I like the interface of the website. Allowing more direct feedback from users really allows for an informed justification for each review.

Cons:

The reviews are helpful but they do take some time to fill out. The badges are a great idea as long as they are accurate and unbiased.

I love the update: a more visual UI looks great, reviews give a good glance at actual usability and integrating AL's jobs section seems a powerful idea. But the "around the web" section only helps products with good PR, and these are not usually the ones that make the PH community stand out. It might make life a bit harder for the unknown creator to make her product stand out. It's just my opinion, keep up the good work!

Pros:

Everything but "around the web"

Cons:

Around the web

Overall - great work! So stoked. :)

Pros:

Great to see the social links and ability to add further details about the product. Makes it super easy to learn about team, focus, etc...

Cons:

Reviews are a double-edged sword. If reader isn't the target market a negative review can hurt more than a positive review can help.

With more info and capabilities comes more overhead - the reviews and comments just run on, then sidebar has all kinds of info that only a subset of people will find useful, yet it takes up significant real estate.

Pros:

Better and more information, better UX/UI performance on mobile

Cons:

A lot of cognitive overhead, Solid button to outline on press..huh?

I really struggled to find the reviews section. In hindsight I can now say that this is because the reviews, the comments, the about section etc all have exactly the same (or close enough) styling.

Different UI functions should have their own identity in order to prevent this "feature blindness".

Pros:

Reviews are great and sharing from within the product page is awesome.

Cons:

There are now a lot of different elements on the page, but they all have a very similar look & feel which makes differentiation challenging.

About the upvote button, the design is great but it's your core feature guys, take it to the top! (I mean the top of the page 😋)

Also, it might be now a bit hard to understand how things work for new users with their premiere experience.

Oh and if you have some goodies to send, know that you will make a french ambassador very happy 🤗

Pros:

New informations added allow users to fall even more in love with a product when they like it initially! So great 😎

Cons:

I really enjoy the new design of the upvote button! Definitely more attractive.

I only wish it could have stayed next to the product title.

1. Badges - should be on left hand side with clear visibility. I am sure there would be different types of badges available, based on the category for which they would be awarded. Of course, users' actions make difference to the badge on the product but that should be obvious for end user too

2. Descriptions - should be in collapsible box once it reaches to permissible limit of visible characters/words

3. Reviews - It would be great if reviews and badges are related (somewhat!)

4. Around the web - Definitely should be placed below reviews and discussions

5. Social Links - No comment, really!

6. Jobs - Thanks a lot for that!

Pros:

Very well organized

Cons:

Around the web should not precede over Reviews and Discussions

ProductHunt is evolving from new products leader-board to a comprehensive products database useful to anyone making research for a best tool on market to solve their problems.

Pros:

Addition of reviews is great and gives better insight into products.

NPM like "Would you recommend" also a great addition.

Cons:

New features are not yet supported in mobile version.

Twitter based user profiles makes it harder to understand reviewers' background.

Product development at times is a hyper dynamic process which requires equal parts of inspiration, perspiration, and disruption. Product hunt creates an interesting platform to discover similar ideas and inspirations on the path of development. It also helps validate the best ideas to ensure a positive growth and a healthy product-market fit.

Pros:

The platform goes beyond creating a community. It actually creates a conversation. The latest update goes a long way in solidifying the same

Cons:

It can do with a better breakdown of reviews going in to the visual, conceptual, and impacting qualities of a product. It seems unilateral.

I'm waiting weekly for the ProductHunt email 😀 I'm subscribed to a few categories for which I see the most popular products. Because I can't find this on website, I'm interacting with PH just when I get the newsletter.

When I open 2-4 PH tabs from email, now I'm expecting for Safari to hang or crash. By using Safari everyday I'm used for sites not being optimised for it, and PH is one of them..

There's too much info on a product page and not easy to follow. I think sections are displayed by their importance, it would help with this. Who knew I could find info about Hunter and Maker so down along the page.

Pros:

Helps finding new tech and products

Cons:

Not a good layout for product page, no weekly/monthly top for category, sometimes crashes Safari
