Congrats on the launch, @_anupg! I love the Momentum-like approach (a chrome extension I'm very fond of). What was the inspiration behind Limitless?
Zack Shapiro
Just downloaded it, @_anupg. If you'd like an extension to look at for examples of how to do message passing, CSS, whatever, feel free to look at Silencer, my old extension https://github.com/zackshapiro/silencer

Thanks @rrhoover! Hello everyone, I am Anup and our team created this app. Hope to get lots of feedback here. I recently got the Jawbone Up and loved the passive tracking and helpful nudges. Thought something similar for desktop/ browsing productivity would be awesome to have. Momentum like approach was used to make it non-intrusive and feel like a passive tracker.

@_anupg - my favorite question: Who's your target audience and how do you plan to acquire users?

@rrhoover Very early days honestly :) This extension is more of a proof of concept. We showed it to a couple of company executives and they showed interest in developing it as an employee engagement platform for enterprises

Cool, I'm a huge fan of these types of in browser new tab extension apps (I'm currently toying with building one in order to see what's possible.. when I do, I'll share it on product hunt) I like what you guys have done here - my main criticism is with the icons. It'd be better if the icons conveyed their meaning a big better... Consider getting some semiotics help? :-) Also, It wasn't abundantly clear to me how to get my data in, which is a big part of the problem of these apps. I like that you're small and focused on one aspect, which is consistently delivering information back to users regularly. Being armed with the right information is an important facet of designing tools for changing behaviors.

@ashbhoopathy Thanks for the feedback! New version with more intuitive icons should be out tomorrow :) Would love to know more about your thoughts on the Chrome extension ecosystem

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share some news about Limitless. A VISA issue means that the team cannot continue working on it full time. It is disappointing as we had good user growth and had planned some exciting features ahead. But it was a great learning experience and I just wanted to thank the PH community again. PH was instrumental in our initial traction and the quality feedback we got made Limitless better. We will continue to work on it over the weekends. As for me, even I am looking at fulltime APM/ PM & marketing roles and would love to chat if someone has any suggestions/ openings. Thanks again guys!
