Wrapping up

What a great selection of apps on ProductHunt in August!

While it still has some tools-for-builders, the list also brings great apps for the public in general to improve on productivity and health aspects, including in the community sense. Good to know that this is currently popular on ProductHunt.

We hope you found an app or two that will help you with your next project on the list. Let us know in the comments!

And in the meantime, you can always get more productive with Curiosity! 😉

Methodological note

There are many ways to interpret: “Hottest in the month”. In case you’re wondering, here’s how we put together the list:

  • Check most-upvoted list every day this month (ProductHunt Time Travel)

  • Check upvotes as of the day of collection (1st of the following month)

  • Select 10 apps with the most upvotes

That means the list is slightly biased towards apps that launched earlier in the month (more time to collect votes). However, since it contains apps from the entire month, we feel that small imprecision is acceptable. Upvote counts are from the day we pulled the data.

We also removed any projects related to NFTs, blockchains and Web3. If you’re confused why, check out @web3isgreat or @smdiehl on Twitter.
