FlowReads became Product of the Day on ProductHunt

Jake Prins @jakeprins

Launched a new side project called FlowReads on ProductHunt and it became product of the day! It’s a simple web app to discover books that can help you grow. I have built it with React and used the Google Books API to get the data.

I was a bit surprised that it did so well. I’ve spent waaay more time on RaterFox, but that never made it to the top 5. And now I built a project in just a couple of weekends and people seem to really love it. It shows again that you don’t need to spend months or years on development. Just built the simplest version possible and launch that first to see if people like it.
