Let's be honest,
We can all wait here for Steemit Inc to get around to make their website better or vote with our feet and start using alternatives. I've tried many and I must say that now I'm 100% switching to STEEMPEAK
What I Love About Steempeak.com
Steempeak mission is:
Simplify the STEEM experience for the new users and be a one-stop shop for the advanced users.
I have to say that so far, they are right on the money. I don't want to have one website for my autovotes, one website for my private message, one website for my analytics, etc. I'm happy they are coming in the fill that niche.
1. THEY ARE MOVING FAST!
Tired of stagnant development and not seeing new features and design coming your way? The people of SteemPeak are working super hard to make this front-end the best of the best. You can connect with them directly via their discord channel: https://discord.gg/Fy3bca5
They are quick to respond and loves to have your feedback.
2. Side by Side Text Editor
One thing that bothers me with all the other front-end is that in order to see a preview of what I'm writing, I must scroll all the way down and then back up. This is both unproductive and frustrating to use. SteemPeak makes it so that I don't have to scroll back and forth to see what your post will look like.
Any seriously blogging platform worth their salt provides a way to get data about who votes for you, how much you are making, etc.
Finally, I don't have to jump to another website to get the information that I need. Hopefully, with time, that feature will get better and better.
4. Saved Users + Saved Topics + Bookmarks
Want to create your own curated feed experience? Save your favorite topics and users for quick access through the "Saved Topic" and "Saved Users". Add the possibility to bookmark directly from the feed and you've got something much more enjoyable to browse.
Try out steempeak and you'll be happily surprised. I've heard through the grapevines that some awesome new features and coming online such as private message (which I can't believe steemit.com never implemented)
See you there!
