Have you ever wondered what products or apps you’re missing out on? It’s easy to find the most popular ones in a particular category—but what about the hidden gems? One of Product Hunt’s community members David Spinks has the same question. So, he asked other users: What’s one app you use a lot that most people don’t know about?
The community responded with over 220 product recommendations. Here are 27 of our favorites—from a plug-in that helps you write better, to a Mac volume booster, to an automated website that tracks just about everything in your life. Read on for more…but be ready to go down an app blackhole for the next few hours. :-)
Magnet for Mac: Keep your workspace organized
“I figured Magnet would just be a gadget app that I would never end up using. Yet, before I knew it, I couldn’t work without it anymore. Every time I use it, people go, ‘Woah, how do you do that? I need this so bad.‘”’ It’s a super simple tool to organize/split your screen between open windows by dragging windows to a side/corner of the screen. It automatically resizes the windows to fill only a certain portion of the screen so you can see multiple windows at once. Incredibly helpful, and I cannot work anymore without this.” — Kevin Ferret
f.lux: Adjust your computer’s display to adapt to the time of day
“I’ve been using f.lux for years and have it installed on all my computers/laptops and always recommend it to people. When macOS 10.12.4 released with Night Shift, I tried for a day or two. But, I wasn’t satisfied with it as it wouldn’t make the screen warmer like f.lux does and doesn’t have app-level settings (You can make f.lux automatically disable when you open a particular app) and other excellent features like taskbar icon to disable movie mode and more. So f.lux has and will continue to be my favorite.” — Syed Irfaq R.
