Jacob's top 5 product tweets from the past week
If you missed it on Tuesday, I told the origin story and growth mechanisms for Waze. It’s one of the most fun articles I’ve written - hope you enjoy :)
🐤 Nug #1 — skeuomorphism has its moments
🐤 Nug #2 — Ya feel me? Felt.
Map building products have always been for the developers. If you want to customize anything other than pin color and label text, you had to build your own custom map. Felt is bringing map building to the consumer.
1/ Today we are announcing a huge milestone: we are no longer in beta. With Felt 1.0 comes a suite of tools for sophisticated groups and organizations, such as Teams, Team Libraries, and new features for professionals 🎉 felt.com/blog/felt-reac…
🐤 Nug #3 — the comeback story
Apple maps is so slept on now. By far has the best UI and easy to understand while driving. Its the most slept on native iOS app.
🐤 Nug #4 — utilities don’t have to be boring
🐤 Nug #5 — yoooo 😂
🐤 Bonus Nug
Building a successful consumer app requires 1 dope feature that’s better than your competition. Doesn’t need to change the world, and doesn’t even need to be original. Research viral social apps from 5-10 years ago and reboot them - this time with better flows and growth loops.
Hope that gave you a little inspiration and a reason to smile - now go enjoy your weekend :)
