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.

Let’s hunt together!

App Launchpad

Taking screenshots of a new app on the App Store is a tedious and time-consuming task. Developers take to paying a designer to take screenshots and mock up great looking screenshots. Other options have always been paid tools which are expensive or take a while.  The new tool, App Launchpad, is 100% free for app developers who need screenshots. It gives filters, a variety of devices, and has tools like fonts and drawing tools. All in all, it’s the best and cheapest option for app developers.


The Whyd is a beautiful speaker that has all of the features of the Amazon Echo and Sonos. The speaker plays music from all the top streaming sites, has voice controls, has multiroom support, and looks great. The Amazon Echo is a great smart speaker but doesn’t allow for music beyond Spotify or Amazon Music. It also features multiroom support to enable you to have more than one speaker in your house. The device is on pre-order for $299, but will retail for $499. The price is higher than the Echo, but looks better and has higher quality speakers.

Stranger Things Type Generator

Everyone has watched Stranger Things on Netflix by now. The talk of the town isn’t only the TV series but also the intro that’s taken cues from the 80s. Now everyone on Twitter has finally discovered the Stranger Things Type Generator where they’re typing random words or their names. It’s straightforward and accessible for you just to type in a name and then to get your new image you could share on Twitter or even Instagram.

Google Duo

Google Duo was first announced at Google I/O has finally been released on iOS and Android during a late night release. The app is a FaceTime killer if you want to look at it like that. The app is cross-platform and works like any video calling app. The only neat feature is the knock knock feature which shows you who’s calling. The apps free, and works well but also is another video conferencing app from Google.


I’ve said Slack is a powerful tool for not only business but also families or friends. The Picniic app is built around family sharing with features like shared calendars and todo lists. The idea of having just a tool for the family is interesting, and could make managing a busy mobile family much easier. The pricing is a bit steep with it being $14.99 for my girlfriend and me. I’d be more inclined to pay $4.99 a month or maybe even as much as $9.99, but anything more is too much.

Find It

Wouldn’t you love just to use your iPhone to locate all your files on your Mac? Well if you’re on the same network an app called Find It would help you locate all your files on your Mac and then easily share to your iPhone. While I would be more interested in the app if you could search for files when your remote or away from your home network, but being able to locally search and download files is still useful. It’s a great app considering AirDrop doesn’t work half of the time.


Content marketing is the greatest way to bring in new customers, but also it’s gratifying to see consumers learning about your product or seeing behind the scenes.
