We at Yclas are a big fan of Product Hunt. This company, that was founded in 2013, features the best new products. Every day interesting apps, websites, hardware and tech creations are posted on the Product Hunt website. The visitors can up-vote each product, which results in a daily ranking of the best new products. This gives a great overview of new products that have been introduced on the market.
On August 16th Yclas has been hunted and featured on the Product Hunt website. Of course we are very proud and happy with this, as it shows that our product is appreciated and valued. This is also reflected in the number of up-votes that Yclas got by visitors of Product Hunt. In total 104 people up-voted Yclas, which resulted in a high position and good visibility on the daily ranking.
