    The way your demo video is synced to the music is incredible. That's the level of polish and attention to detail that makes me believe the product itself will be awesome.

  • Posted to Unhoard 2.0 - We help you rediscover the things you saved, liked or favorited from the services you love, Jun 13, 2017

    I think this is a really cool idea – I know, personally, I have about a million links/bookmarks/posts collected all over the place that I'll probably never take the time to review.

    The one feature I'd like to see is a Slack integration. I share most of my content with other designers & developers there so being able to have unhoard grab random links from specific channels would cover the vast majority of my previously discovered things.

    Also wanted to say that your signup/onboarding is nice and straightforward. The only minor thing I noticed was that the placeholder text in your signup email field is missing a space.. just a heads up :)

    Anyways, nice work with this, looking forward to seeing where it goes.

  • Posted to Isn't there a single interface to search design forums like Dribbble, Behance, material up etc and show results in one place., May 05, 2017

    It's not perfect but you can do some pretty advanced searches through Google that might help.

    For example, if I wanted to see modals from behance, dribbble, or materialup I could search for: "modal" site:behance.com OR site:dribbble.com OR site:material.uplabs and that would only return pages tagged with modal from the specified sites. Again, not ideal, but it's a start. (Note that in order to search multiple sites the "OR" has to be uppercase.)

    Here is the Google support page for advanced search queries.

    Good luck!

    Great work on the site and the super quick turn around... very impressive.

    I'm curious about the process of becoming an Amazon affiliate and why they declined you... Any info you might have would be great. Cheers!

    Sounds like a great idea and looks promising. Signed up for the beta and looking forward to an invite :D

    One question that comes to mind is: how is this different than workspaces you can define in Chrome dev tools? They allow you to link project files so have the changes you make in the dev tools translated to the actual files. Is this just a more user friendly version of that functionality?

    Either way, excited to give it a try!

    This is an interesting idea but I'm curious how you would discern between marketing content vs other content..?

  • Posted to Regularly testing submission forms?, Feb 28, 2017

    I came across this chrome extension yesterday that might be helpful. It just records your browser actions and automatically runs them when you start a simulation. I think the mouse clicks are based on coordinates so it might not be helpful if the sites you're testing change (layout-wise) frequently, but if you have a bunch of sites that aren't changing too often it might be worth a look.

    Also I think they have some kind on built in captcha filling tool, but I think that's a premium feature.

  • Posted to Just Junior Jobs v2 - A job board for Junior positions now simpler, easier and better., in reply to Ricard Panadès Nadal , Feb 09, 2017

    Cool idea. There's definitely a market for junior level designers/developers and it's nice to see someone carving out a space for them.

    One little thing I noticed though is that all of the errors and validation on the "Post a job" page are in spanish.. Not sure if that is intentional or if it's picking up something from my IP (unlikely), but just figured I'd let you know :)

    And one other tiny little thing, it looks like your "check it out" Product Hunt button redirects to the PH site feature. Again, not sure if it's intentional or not but you might want to add a target="_blank" to that so users also stay on your site.

    Anyways, nice work and keep it up!

  • Posted to Ask DN: How to learn copywriting?, Jun 09, 2016

    I thought "Microstyle: The Art of Writing Little" was pretty good. Gave concrete examples of short but sweet copy and broke down why it was so successful...

    I thought this book was pretty useful and this essay from Paul Graham is a quick and informative read on writing. Good luck!
