How can you NOT like this when there are so many free icons? Love that you included the ability to create collections. Coming from FlatIcon.com, this is a must. Great job Mark!
Hey Prumio! Loving the concept. Great job at explaining your process on your lander (and great job on the design, too). I signed up on the waitlist. 😀
@CodyFitzpatrick Thanks Cody! Awesome. We're going to on-board as many people as we can before launching publicly. Will reach out soon!
First impression: great tool. I like that all these utilities which I'm already using are now in one place. Would like to see performance data i.e. whether these compressors are as effective as stand-alone (but also free) compressors. Also, would like to see a code
"uglifier"/"obfuscator" added, at least for JavaScript ES6/ES5.
This software looks very useful for a small to medium sized consultancy firm. Depending on initial market response, it may benefit you to tailor some ads toward small consultants / freelancers i.e. independent designers / developers with multiple clients.
@CodyFitzpatrick Thank you very much for your feedback and thoughtful advice. We will take it under consideration and act accordingly.
Great headline there, definitely got my attention as a SMB owner. Agreed with @mikayeap on this one, I was just chatting with Zapier a couple weeks back actually to see if this was possible with _their_ platform. Looking forward to the platform growing and potentially incorporating it into a SaaS or two!
@CodyFitzpatrick Hey Cody,

Thank you for the encouraging feedback!

Would love to learn more how you wanted to use Zapier in that way and what was their response. Feel free to respond here or drop me an email at [email protected] (or use the chat button on our site) - since we're in very early stage every feedback input is crucial.
Hey @enchargeio, we had a Rails + React app which we wanted to integrate via several external apps like popular PM or communication tools. The goal here was to integrate only one external app with our own app, which would serve as a gateway to other integrations.

We sought Zapier for this and contacted them to see if it was possible. Turns out, by integrating with Zapier, you do indeed enable a plethora of integrations. The problem is, every one of our users whom wanted to take advantage of this integration had to have a Zapier account.

I saw it as more of a "Oh, you want to integrate with Trello? Just authenticate with Trello?" when in reality you first had to log in with your Zapier account, then connect your Trello account to your Zapier account in order to establish a connection between our app and the user's Trello account.

Hopefully this makes sense. In short, it'd be immensely powerful for web applications to integrate with only one external application, such as yours, which in turn enables the users of the original web app integrations with a plethora of apps without any additional coding.
Looks and sounds very interesting so far. However, I'm interested to know how this compares to something like Pocket beyond the obvious differences?
@CodyFitzpatrick Thanks for getting in touch! As we’re just getting started, the product feature-set is somewhat similar to Pocket, save for later, view when ready. We’re also handling feeds so we can auto-pull future articles from sites using RSS.

Our vision looks at this problem a little differently than we've seen others approach it before. We want to help lighten the mental burden of content consumption, to help you catch the important content, but not overwhelm you with the full firehose of the internet. Void is a safe place to put stuff and you should feel confident that when add things you can find them again easily should you need to.

And when you sign up, we’re not going to email you every day for the next 5 days giving you tips on how you can get the most from our product, because we respect you and your time and we know you have a million other things to be doing.
@peteyhawkins Thanks for the elaborate response. I can personally vouch for the overwhelming nature of the internet's firehose, when you want to read everything and anything that seems to some extent useful for your current position in your life and career. Curating only the most valuable content would definitely alleviate this problem. Also, respect for the lack of filler emails! I look forward to trying out Void.

Great job on the landing page, product design, as well as product functionality. Great space right now, good luck!
Feature screenshots or even GIFs would be great on the Features page. :)
Hey all, glad to be featured here on BetaList. Feel free to ask any/all questions -- I'll be checking this page for comments. You can also send me a message through our live chat app on our homepage [www.timeline.io].
Following up here per some messages we've received -- the demonstrational GIFs above are OUTDATED. Check out our homepage [www.timeline.io] for interactive demos or our help docs [https://help.timeline.io/] for animated guides.

Thanks everyone for the support thus far!
I'm a big fan of the characters you've created and displayed on your landing page, but I think it would benefit many visitors (and potentially improve your conversion rates) if you displayed screenshots of your cloud storage UI. It'd be nice to see how all the copy on the lander transforms into actual product features.
Sounds interesting. How does ease-of-use compare with URL2PNG?
@CodyFitzpatrick Hi Cody! Thanks for your interest.
I'd say it's more focused on thumbshots on websites, and you can use it without any server side code. Also, although there are less advanced options for now, we tried to focus on making the hard thing completely transparent to our users, for example, we can serve conditional formats (best of WEBP, PNG or JPEG) depending on what the visitor's browser support.
If you try it, make sure to et us know what you think!

@rdorgueil Thanks for the response and clarification. I may be trying this very soon!
@CodyFitzpatrick You're welcome! We also have plans to open related additional services, stay tuned ;)
I've often wondered why VPC & Security Group visualization is not a part of AWS already. Great work!
@rdorgueil Thanks for the response and clarification. I may be trying this very soon!
@CodyFitzpatrick You're welcome! We also have plans to open related additional services, stay tuned ;)
Would love to hear how this is better than some of the other alternatives out there for iOS, beyond the fact that it's free. There wasn't very much information on your homepage unfortunately.
@CodyFitzpatrick A few reasons why Magic Lasso is better than some other alternatives:
– We have very strict privacy and security policies and cannot see any web pages that our user's visit. We do not store any user data or have a data-based business model.
– Our app is completely user funded and not advertiser funded (unlike some other adblockers such as Adblock Plus). This means we can make product decisions that are better for our users and subscribers as opposed to advertisers. Some of the philosophy behind the product is described at: https://www.magiclasso.co/insights/problem-with-ads-internet-inevitable-rise-adblocking/
– Our ad blocking technology uses the native and supported iOS and macOS Safari content blocking APIs. This means we can't see what our users are browsing on the web and these APIs will have ongoing support by Apple in the future. Some other adblockers utilised VPN based ad blocking which allows tracking of visited web pages, can have security issues, and is not supported by Apple on iOS.

Thanks for your interest.
Looks very promising. Enjoyed seeing the comparison chart on the homepage, but I didn't see "SetMore" on there, which one of my clients who happens to own 2 salons uses. Would love to see a comparison between Artemiz and Setmore.
Very ambitious project. Would have loved to check it out but unfortunately your website appears to be down right now..
Love this! We can all use fewer backlit displays in our lives. :)
Not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but what happens if you push a commit to GitHub (with PrettierCI in the pipeline) where you only change, say, a few lines of a JS file. The whole file is not properly formatted, so Prettier updates it. Does the whole file then show as changed for the commit, rather than the few lines you worked on?
Very cool concept. Would love to see an "apply to you" platform for developers and designers! Perhaps a horizontal market expansion is in your future? :)
Very cool tool @contentflyco! I'm assuming this article scans your blog post for keywords, but then what data source does it cross reference for creation of a seemingly popular title? Just curious! :)
I love how you're positioning yourself via your marketing -- your hero video is great! Wishing you the best!
Very cool! What is the RAM usage per tab saved in Workona versus explicitly open tabs? i.e., what is the RAM consumption of Workona for tabs saved in a non-active workspace? I have personally been using OneTab for similar purposes as it does not consume any compute power unless I am actively archiving/unarchiving tabs.
I love this! Ever since seeing the New York Times' interactive articles, I have always wanted to replicate the experience on my own sites.
Love this! Does ReceiptStash automatically classify the receipt based off, say, business or merchant name listed on the receipt?
Big fan of this idea, however, one note: Prior to clicking through the BetaList email, I read "Matching you w/ shares that fit your environmental, social & ethical values" as meaning SOCIAL shares, not company shares. I was honestly expecting some type of marketing tool. In situations like this it may be preferable to swap "shares" with "investments" to prime readers and thus only draw in those interested in financial investments. :)
Very cool! This pulls from aggregate data sources, rather than an internal database that, say, startup PR teams could submit articles to?
@CodyFitzpatrick Thanks for checking us out! OnePitch is an internal database used by communications teams to connect wth pre-vetted media contacts who have opted-in to receiving curated pitches to fit their interests.
FYI -- the site did not load when using the BetaList link (https://www.mailtag.io/?ref=betalist). Once I finally got it to load, I got to see your beautiful landing page. Great job! Service reminds me of "GMass" yet more modern. P.S. May want to add a loading animation to be replaced by your lander's content upon completion of load, because for a few moments, I'm sitting here wondering if anything is even happening!
What are the primary competitive advantages over, say, this space's incumbent StatusPage.io?
@CodyFitzpatrick

Hello!

Sunset is a better alternative to StatusPage.io because of the simplicity and price. For example, StatusPage is crowded with extra addons that you don't need. Sunset brings everything you actually use into a clean & simple dashboard. Regarding price, StatusPage.io is $49/mo for their most basic features. With Sunset, you pay $12 once and get the features that their higher plans have.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers!

Austin
Love this! Great job on the filter recommendations too (with the AMZN affiliate tag snuck in there ;)).
