Excerpted from review article by The Next Web:
"There’s no shortage of apps and websites to help guide consumers’ decision-making. But what about products and services that have yet to hit the market?
Hypejar wants to organize the world’s upcoming products, making them more accessible and easy-to-find.
“We strive to be the go-to website for movies, music, video games, gadgets, cars, and anything else with a future release date,” explains Grant Yim, one of the company’s four co-founders. “Users can keep track of products and be notified of their releases....”
When you first visit Hypejar, you’ll be greeted with a long page of content, with categories including ‘Releasing Soon’, ‘Most Hyped’, ‘Recently Seen’ and ‘Just Added’ featuring prominently.
Across the top of the page you’ll see a series of menus, one of which is ‘Browse’, which lets you filter out content by category – such as movies, music, video games and so on.
A core facet of Hypejar is its community – it is what helps to populate the content. As such, if you have a good scoop on an upcoming launch, you can choose to add a new item yourself.
You’re given the options of category, sub-category, product name, manufacturer, launch date and so on.
It’s also worth mentioning a key Hypejar feature…your own personal jar. It’s akin to ‘Liking’ or ‘Favoriting’ a product, with all your top upcoming launches viewable in the ‘Products In My Jar’ tab, after you’ve clicked on an item’s ‘Add To My Jar’ button. You will also receive email notifications around your interested products.
So, Hypejar is like a cross between Pinterest and Wikipedia for upcoming products..."
