    Available in some sort on Mac.


    It's just a tiny app on the Mac menu bar, showing the latest topics, with no write access.

    Product Hunt for Mac could be improved. I know the team is upto a lot with developments on the web front, but this could be improved by making changes to the Mac menu bar app - some sort of write access to comment or upvote? Maybe launch an Android app too alongside?

Fun fact: the Mac app is one of those most popular Topics on Product Hunt and over the past year, we’ve seen a lot of interest specifically in menu bar apps. So, my teammate, @DeVladinci, encouraged us to build one. The app is super simple, delivering popular products, games, books, and podcasts from your menu bar (see settings to control the firehose 😁). A subtle notification counter increments when new things are trending, surfacing posts at the top of the feed with a red dot. This isn’t the first Product Hunt Mac app — several people in the community have created different variations which is part of the inspiration for open sourcing the app so others can improve it with us. It’s on GitHub. Anyway, let us know what you think and major props to @DeVladinci and @sethbwilliams!

@rrhoover @devladinci @sethbwilliams Great. would love to have the ability to see the number of upvote more obvisouly (like on website). Clear gray is a little difficult to read

@rrhoover agree with this. I would seriously appreciate someone writing a tutorial walkthrough on making these apps with Swift.
