Let’s Hunt on Product Hunt

Each week I round up the best product on Product Hunt for you to check out. There are dozens of new podcasts, hundreds of new apps, and many more products launched on Product Hunt Each week. It’s hard to keep up, but luckily for you, I spend most my day lurking on the site. There were many more hunts I wanted to include, but these were the top ones I loved.

If you don’t know what Product Hunt is, I wrote a little description to help you understand:

Product Hunt is a service where you can share and discover new products. The site was founded byRyan Hoover in November of 2013, with funding from Y Combinator. The basis of the site is users submit a fresh podcast, an innovative app, other tech products, or wild gadgets. From there other users upvote the products onto the front page. The whole process feels a lot like Reddit but with a focus towards discovering products within the technology community.

I’m active on Product Hunt as @leonhitchens, where you can follow me!

Let’s hunt together! by Netflix

Netflix launched 3 months back with only a website, but now Netflix introduced an iOS and Android app. The idea is the same still with being fast, clean, and only showing download speeds. There s a blog post from Netflix on how they designed and built the app. The app uses Netflix’s CDN and content to test speeds to give you an understand of how their app will work, but also how fast your download speeds are.

I have been using the app more often than to test speeds quickly on a network instead of having the extra info.

No Man’s Sky

The PS4 and PC game has everyone talking about the new game. The game has billions and trillions of planets where you can explore. There are billions of hours of gameplay, and they’res already more species discovered then there are on planet Earth. The game’s been hyped about for the amount of gameplay and randomly generated worlds. The PS4 version came out first, and the PC version came out the 10th. The scale of the game is incredible, and your only goal in the game is to explore.

Better TweetDeck

I recently wrote about the Chrome extension, and one of the reason was that I saw the extension start to trend on Product Hunt. The idea of the extension is to turn Tweetdeck into a more powerful web app, as Twitter has been long ignoring the app. The new features bring emojis, appearance updates, and a lot of minor tweaks. It makes the app feel much more powerful and gives the impression that Twitter updates the app regularly.


Kids are playing with smartphones and in turn using apps more often. We’ve heard about parents see inappropriate ads on games and apps. Kidoz is a content discovery network made just for kids with content that fits their needs and staying appropriate. The widget is in dozens of apps and used by large companies like T-Mobile and Sprout. The service has a Kids SDK, Mode, and Network to ensure our kids are safe and sound when they’re playing games or using apps.

Chrome IG Stories

Instagram Stories might just be a Snapchat ripoff, but I’ve come to love the feature more than I have ever liked Snapchat’s. The feature has been limited to the Android and iOS app, but the Chrome extension now enables you to watch stories from the browser. Instagram has long ignored the mobile web for apps, but extensions have added more features like uploading photos. If you do use Instagram in the browser, this is a must use extension.


Fabric likes to call themselves the story of your life that writes itself. The app tracks your location and overlays Foursquare database to give you a  glimpse into your life. It also shows you what friends you were with so you could backtrack your steps. You can take photos, and the app starts to collect them to see what you were doing at those locations. There are other apps like this, but this one does a different spin on the idea of collecting where you were and what friends were for you automatically.

How Much To Make a Logo

How much does branding or a logo cost? A new tool lets you estimate the cost of creating a logo and additional resources like brand guidelines and business cards or stickers. Creation of an icon, business card, and logo could cost upwards of $2,600 for just an image. Of course, this value is rooted in billable for a designer on The Crew.
