Hey everyone. Making Stoop 2 was a lot of fun. There are tons of little improvements over the first version and one big one: you can now subscribe to YouTube Channels and have new videos delivered right to your Stoop. I think there's something special about the newsletter & video channel combo -- I'm loving using it so far and I hope you will too. Happy to answer anything.

@timraybould Hey Tim, awesome concept! Is there a limitation of the number of newsletters one can subscribe? If so, what is it? Thanks!

One of my favorite apps of all time. Before Stoop my inbox was a mess and now I'm easily hitting inbox 0, while having all the newsletter organized in a separate app. Already recommended to bunch of friends and they all got hooked. Now curious about the new YouTube feature. My first impression is: Not all the channels that I'm subscribed on YouTube should go into my Stoop. Only the channels which I'm super passionate about, which is one or two. Bear in mind that Stoop can get messy as well, similar to an inbox, if you just blindly subscribe to whatever you find interesting on the web.

@farbodsaraf Thanks Farbod! Play around with the YouTube Channel quantity for sure. They're far easier than newsletters to add and delete. I sub to about 10 channels and it feels right. Some I watch every one, some (i.e. NBA) I scan the incoming feed and mostly just tap "mark all as watched."

Why I would subscribe to video channels, when I have this feature in YouTube?

@amslu good question. I still use YouTube to search and browse, but when a creator I already know I want to hear from publishes a new video, I now get to watch it inside of an inbox, and away from the highway-billboard-like experience within YouTube, designed to get you down that rabbit hole. Stoop is designed to organize and consume the content from the sources you care about, then go about your day. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

@timraybould Hi Tim, thanks for the reply, I'll take a shot and test it on one of my YT subscriptions ;) Although, I don't see it as feasible option for my ~100 subscriptions... My reflection is that you cannot sell a stripped-down video player as a solution for the information-overloaded-binged-watching issue of ill-set YouTube KPI's. IMO, recommended video section on YT enables me to reach amazing content that I wouldn't even know that existed in the first place - I usually add it to Watch later list, which partially helps with the 'rabbit hole' syndrome. There IS a need for some smarter way to control our media consumption, but manually subscribing to video channels is not it.

@timraybould Btw. I'm a day-one user of Stoop, but I didn't convert to premium, yet... and of course, I have some suggestions;D I'd gladly pay $10 for: * Option to subscribe to an auto-generated daily, weekly or monthly newsletter on self-picked subreddits. * Option to subscribe to an auto-generated daily, weekly or monthly newsletter on best tweets from my observed accounts (think Nuzzle in form of a newsletter). *Option to subscribe to an auto-generated daily, weekly or monthly newsletter from selected Google alert keywords (Feedly does have a similar feature but in form of RSS) Some left-brain thinking for premium features: * Guest newsletters - experts share their top-picked - like a Spotify playlist: i.e Joe Rogan shares his favorite links from his podcasts... * Option to tip and send a question to newsletter author (ala Medium) If you need any help with design, feel free to reach me on twitter. :)

@amslu Awesome, thanks for being an early user and also for that great list of feedback and suggestions. I hear you on the YT bit. I find I like the inbox paradigm a lot better for video subscriptions vs. regular consumption mixed with discovery in the case of the YT app. But, I can see if that's not true for everyone!
