Hated the update until I saw the ‘List’ layout option
Was very disappointed when I first experienced the new update because the default is the car layout. It adds significantly more visual noise and requires more scrolling. I eventually checked the settings and noticed a List layout that made the experience like the original version. Now I’m enjoying PH again. Huge relief!
1) for years across multiple devices the app randomly gives JSON errors pulling the list that requires it to be killed and restarted 2) when you scroll deep in the list it refreshes causing you to have to start back again from the top making it nearly impossible to go back far in time 3) they now have added auto playing videos without adding any way in settings to stop that. I often read the list in places that require quiet and now wind up scrambling to stop the video and/or kill the volume Ok so appending for the new app that seems to have corrected for some of the issues with the old app so far, but now that new app can’t seem to handle accessibility settings for larger text in iOS. So basically the new app is not ADA compliant.
Since at the moment I am going through the process with my mom’s visas. I know what is look like to wait until you get the answer from the service you work with. In term of time you just need patience until someone gets back to you. It’s been a while now I’m trying to get an interview scheduled. I hope someone has read my message that I sent through my email. I would say good luck to anyone else in my situation.
The “Back” button doesn’t work when attempting to return to a a tab/list of products after viewing a product page. The only way to get off of a product’s page and back to browsing Product Hunt is by closing the app entirely & reopening it. Constant crashing while scrolling through products as well — both through product lists & scrolling through individual products’ pages. With all of the incredibly talented & inventive minds contributing to Product Hunt, it’s baffling that no one has launched a product to fix Product Hunt.
Program is good for scanning, but pricing is way off on a lot of cards. To me this is the most important tool as it defines the value of your collection. Tech support is not good, if you send them emails about issues they pretty much quit responding. Apparently they don’t take criticism very well. I paid good money for the app so I have certain expectations of how the product works and it’s accuracy. Too many other companies are working on the technology to be competitive and I will definitely shop around if improvements are not made.
Everybody publishes their best apps here. It is a wonderland of apps that solve all kinds of problems and the voting system guarantees the cream floats. Been a fan of this app for a decade. I am never disappointed.
I'm a startup nut and I love PH and the awesome community
As a maker, I like to build products and create things that empower other entrepreneurs. PH has honestly allowed me to share my passion with other like minded people from all over the world. From Digital nomads living in Bangkok to Silicon Valley techies and all the way down to the Silicon Beach bros of LA. This revamped version of the app is executed flawlessly and has many great features. One of my favorites is the much awaited feature to add products to your "collections". You can also now reply to comments and the overall flow of the app is smoother and the animations are oh so slick. Mad props to the IOS Engineers who put this together and a big shoutout to the PH team which is near and dear to my nerdy heart.
Ok, first off, I don’t do a lot of reviews unless something catches my attention that is of exceptional value. Product hunt is that app. It keeps me on top of the tech scene by letting me know what is the hottest things (or about to become) in tech, books, software and more. It has a voluntary community that curates things that get voted up or down, so there is a democratic process administered by the internet, it’s like consumer reports and reddit had a baby. If you love tech and want to know what the next big thing is, you will find it here first, before any other news source. Indispensable for founders and investors in tech.
I’m a product designer and thusly just love Product Hunt in general. I’m glad that they introduced a solid mobile experience so I can stay connected and inspired even when I’m indisposed. 😜 I also tend to try to use my phone for tasks and activities I deem as useful or productive. Most feeds of social content accessed on mobile tend to be addictive and filed in the ‘unproductive’ category (to put it politely) in my book. This is addictive, but truly useful and inspirational for makers, designers, and the like. Thanks for pulling such a rad community together and continuing to build and support cool products. 😻
I didn't know how badly I needed Product Hunt until I found Product Hunt! The digg-like list of new apps is so valuable because it's curated by people who think critically about tech - I know I'm only seeing stuff worth knowing about. On top of that their regular newsletter is so awesome because it not only simply lists the best of the best, but also creates lists of niche category apps, which makes discovery fun and rich. I am a digital consultant and every one of my clients knows about PH because I constantly use them as a case study of a website service doing everything right: from content to UI to email marketing. They have filled a desperate need (app discovery) and deliver it in what seems to be an obsessive commitment user experience. Simply, they complete the loop throughout and add HUGE value to their specific user. I don't know Ryan Hoover (I swear) but he's the man.
I appreciate so much about the PH website, but ...
... this app, well... New products, apps, websites, services: Product Hunt delivers. And that the makers participate in the discussions is pure gold to me. My first impressions of this new app are 1) please don’t make my eyes hurt, grey on lighter grey would be tough even for a kitty; 2) it's crashed a couple of times in the past 15 minutes; 3) where are the categories/tabs? All I see are new products, listed from mewest (actual typo, but I just have to leave it) first. Probably a bit of fine tuning “under the hood” would make it better than ever. (P.S. I’m setting up my new laptop and it doesn’t have a single kitty sticker on it. Sad, so sad.)
I really like the the concept of this however it is still in the social media category. Given this, do not forget to identify with all of your personas most importantly, the social aspect to each. I want to be able to update my profile picture and the background image so that I can further identify myself socially on this app. Given that I utilize the Twitter sign on when I log onto your app, then my images automatically transfer from Twitter to Product Hunt. I do not like that they cannot be different then what is on Twitter. I hope I'm just missing how to update this. Thanks for any assistance and future updates to allow this!
Wish I hadn't updated - new layout is not user friendly
Nooooooo :( I wish I had looked at screenshots before updating, I'm a looooong time fan of PH - but this latest update completely forgoes usability in favor of 'design'. By updating you will lose the ability to scan through a concise list of today's hunts, in favor of HUGE cover images that make scanning the list in an efficient manner impossible. In one update it has gone from an addicting app I looked forward to opening every day, to a chore. If you want to scan back over the previous 3 days worth of hunts it takes 19 swipes (yes I counted!). I love PH like a child so it pains me to give feedback like this, but please roll back the feed to a scannable list view, or at the very least give us the option to turn the images off. By trying to make your baby more beautiful you crippled it at the same time. Overall this version is a sub par experience on mobile, and heck I'm on a 6+. I'll stick to the website for now... Sad meow.
I often find myself searching ProductHunt first when looking for products to use, or I research. Yesterday it paid off, I won a $20 bet that I couldn’t find a product that performed a specific task... using product hunt I found two, installed them both, tested them (both worked fine) and was done in less than 5-min .... just waiting for Ryan to ask for 50% revenue share on new bets won 😂👍
I am a very long product hunt user, which makes writing this review that much harder. Huge fan of PH and the community and platform they have built. Their last app was not amazing, but it was pretty good and got the job done. This app is absolutely useless. Not sure if the problems are only on iPhone X or all devices, but it’s literally unusable. I open the app and click on a product and nothing happens for a few seconds. Then the page opens, the app bugs out, and everything I try to click is unresponsive. This update is so bad that I have found myself using PH on my mobile browser or just not checking it at all. I’m sure PH has a good dev crew or even connections to good iOS developers. Please make a change!
I like product hunt and what it does for browsing cool products. However, the app is actually really bad. It’s super unresponsive, tons of bugs which cause crashing, sluggish and constantly reads my touches/swipes incorrectly. The developers need to do serious work on the app to allow users to browse more smoothly. Navigation swiping like is built into iOS is completely broken, swiping through images of a product will sometimes cause you to swipe to a new product, etc. Fixing these big problems will make the app a lot less frustrating to use
So the Twitter Log-in finally works (!) but the app itself is still a little too bare bones. Obviously fixing the Twitter bug wouldn't resolve that, but I would like to see the experience become a little more visual (ie--thumbnails of products/sites instead of just headlines). I also wish the default view was for the site/product link, and not the people up-voting. Which is more important for this experience? And Pocket support would be quite lovely. I guess I'm just being critical because this concept of a service is very cool and something I've wanted for a long time.
I could potentially come to love this app but right now it's too big of a pain in the neck to even bother with. The "Details" tab should provide a few more details than a one line blurb about the product. A photo and price would be ideal :) Then I can more easily determine if it's even worth going to the website for further details. Especially since every time I click on the "website" tab I get the spinning wheel of death forever and end up having to open it in Safari to actually view the product. Add a photo of the product and speed it up and I'll quickly change my rating to 5 stars! ;)
I'm a big Product Hunt aficionado, and though most of my activities of the site involve lurking rather than posting and commenting, I love what Ryan and team are building. The new iOS app is a big leap forward over the first version, brining the mobile functionality to par with the desktop web. If you are at all interested in new tech products and the people behind them, Product Hunt is where you need to be.
5min/day to capture a ton info on latest startups, new features and the talk of the town. You’ll find everyone from C level execs and the brightest SWE here talking about what’s good and what not. A quick look at the daily tab gives me a good info on what’s new, what’s trending, and what’s worth buying/paying for. I would highly recommend NOT wasting time on buying expensive tech magazines. PH is the key to your tech house!
The developers must have thought it a good idea to implement their own scroll view.. then failed miserably at it. This product scroll view is basically the core feature of the app. Yet it has every bug imaginable. It loses your spot about 50% of the time you visit a product. It somehow manages to make the butter smooth scrolling on iphone into a choppy mess. It drains battery at an impressive rate, and manages to get into states where if you attempt to scroll at the wrong time, a single result will be duplicates infinitely. Amazing that the devs managed to ship so many bugs in a single component. Perhaps they should product hunt some QA tools.
I love Product Hunt and have always used the web version, and have just discovered the app. However, on the web version I’m able to login with my Google account (which is what my entire account relies on); on the app version, I only see the options to login with Twitter and Facebook which means I can’t access my account. Does anyone know why this is the case and if Product Hunt is planning to add the ability to login with Google to the app version? It’s really very strange and inconvenient that the login methods are different between web and app. Thanks!
I recently downloaded the ProductHunt mobile app update a while back, it is amazing! I’m loving the dark mode and just being able to upvote new launches 🛠🚀. But one thing I think it is missing is being able to check your Ship Subscription 🚣♀️. I think that being able to manage this and your launches would be awesome! 😀
The new design looks great but this app has some sort of memory issues. It runs fine on the first couple launches but then the animations will slow down like crazy. I’ll click on a product and about 30 seconds later, a jittery opening animation will slowly start. Once I force close the app it works correctly for a little bit. I’ll be glad to send screen recordings if it’ll help investigating the issue. I’m on an iPhone X so I didn’t really expect to see performance issues with a simple app like this. Hope it gets fixed.
For a website that is about sharing new products and tech, a lot of it related to programming, it’s still unbelievable to me that the mobile app is still (after many years) a hot mess. Constant crashes. Not being able to view my profile or perform much of the basic functionality that the website offers. What is the point of the app? They might as well just discontinue it. Save yourself the headache and visit the PH website on the browser of your choice instead.
The best part about the product hunt app is the fact that it’s well...an app! If you’re on the go and want to keep updated on the latest web apps, App Store apps, devices, platforms etc. Then it’s the best place to stay updated on the best digital and physical tech based products. If you’re a techie, entrepreneur, or just tech fiend then download the app and join the tight product hunt community.
Get this today. Must have if you use the site all day!
Do you browse the web and end up with 50 open tabs by the end of the day? Find that you are the person everyone comes to for app recommendations? This is for you. It's like Ryan took what I do all day and packages it into one simple, yet addictive package. Download it already.
In my opinion, the new design has significantly worse viewing experience than the previous version. This version tries to utilise swiping gestures as a main user interaction, but the implementation and thinking behind it is subpar. When you tap on a Hunt, it shows an overlay view that is dismissible vertically via an interactive gesture and you also vertically scroll to read more content. The main problem is with the conflict with the horizontal gesture of the media section. It also has horizontal scrolling between Hunts. I think the navigation experience is simply not good. Furthermore, I’m not sure what kind of technology is being used to build the app. It is noticeably buggy and clunky. The scrolling animations are off and slow. I hope further thinking and consideration will improve the app for the better in the near future.
Long time PH user here, sad to say that I am extremely disappointed in PH mobile. Since they redesigned the app, it seems like all the functionality went down the drain. There’s barely anything left to do on the app, as a matter of fact, why do we need the app anymore? Why can’t I browse categories? Why can’t I view my notifications without it flickering and never showing me the notifications? Why do some products never load even though I’m certain I have a stable connection. So much wasted potential here. Will uninstall until they release a new version.
Product Hunt is an addiction and with an enhanced mobile app it further grows that addiction because I can find all the new best products and startups where ever I go! The app is simple and that's all that is needed when I'm sitting on the toilet or even walking on the treadmill. This app helps me discover the best apps and products instantly!
Is a bit laggy and not the same as the website which I use daily. I wish you can filter out all of the apps to just showcase iOS apps on the iPhone this way you don’t have to deal with a bunch of slow loading formats instead it takes you right to the App Store. Overall I love this company, but the app needs a little work :) Time for a T-shirt😋
Recent changes to this app have ratcheted up the annoyance factor. The large "app of the day" wastes screen real estate and I'm a 6+ the animated images will invoke whatever ptsd that online advertising has created in your psyche. I find that now I want to quickly browse new stuff and leave the app asap because it's an eyesore.
Product Hunt is not only a place to find new products, but a place to find entrepreneurs to talk with, build with, and share with. It’s where a startup I worked for got discovered by a company that acquired it. It’s where I’ve left comments and been invited to betas. I was a beta tester for the new version, I was too for Sip and Ship, and hopefully they’ll improve the design just a little bit. But overall, it’s provided a platform for products to shine, and even get their own Oscars. It’s pretty sick. Check it out, and maybe you’ll get inspiration for your own product, tons have.
