Our daily routine can benefit immensely from many productivity apps — but it’s also very easy to lose track of what you don’t need anymore. Add to this a frequent underestimation of your monthly subscription spending, and we have an issue.

The most upvoted app this month, ScribeUp was created from this simple demand that could go unseen. The app helps you get back control of all your subscriptions. You can identify current subscriptions, manage them, and save your time and money by preventing unwanted bills.

They claim not to share data or have paywalls or ads. And they provide you with a list of other useful services to try free of risk and charge.

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 the 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.
