Today is a special day for me:
After 6 months of hard work I’m finally launching monote.
I quit my job in October last year to learn how to code and build something of my own and monote is the result of these last few months!
So what is monote?
I often stumble upon interesting products on the web, but then can’t find them again later. I used to be a heavy user of Svpply back in the day, but never found a good alternative when it was shut down (RIP). I’ve tried to use alternatives like Pocket, Pinterest or Kit but none of these tools ever really worked for me.
So I decided to built my own tool: monote is a bookmarking app for products. It’s a little Chrome Extension that lives in your browser and whenever you see something interesting you can quickly add it to your Wants.
Instead of just having one big wishlist, you can organize your products in different collections.
Here some of mine:
- Books I Want to Read
- Furniture I Like (I just moved into a new flat)
- Things That Make Me More Productive
I also started using monote to keep track of how much stuff I own:
Here are a few examples:
I’m a total list junkie – so all collections on monote are also available as sortable lists.
Here is a collection of all products listed in Tools of Titans, for example. You can sort it alphabetically by product name, comment (the different interviewees in this case), product category, price or popularity (number of people on monote who Want the item).
I’m lousy coder and this is literally the first time I’m launching anything, so please excuse any bugs. This launch will hopefully give me some insight into what’s working and – more importantly – what isn’t. Once those things are fixed, I want to add some additional features. Here’s what’s on my to-do list:
- Try to get the extension to work on all sites
- Custom columns for collections
- Ability to Add/Want or Fork collections
- Firefox support
Okay, enough chit-chat. Head over to monote and give it a spin!
