What is Slant

Slant is a product recommendation community with the goal of making it effortless to find the best product, app or game for you. No more spending hours doing product research with tabs full of forums and reviews.

Slant is a complete re-work of how product search and research works. We have two core philosophies:

  1. Product search should be able to answer questions like “What’s the best camera for sports photography around $200?”. The product search of websites like Amazon don’t understand the context of what you’re looking for so their results are very poor.
  2. The information used to answer your question should be specifically tailored to your question, comprehensive, and come from an authentic and knowledgeable community.

The community aspect to Slant is the most important. Questions on Slant are collaboratively answered by the recommendations of thousands of people coming together to share what they know. So instead of digging through reviews, you can quickly read one comprehensive summary.

This is also what makes contributing to the Slant community so rewarding. You can recommend products you’re passionate about while getting help from others on things where you’re not so knowledgeable.

It would take me minutes to help someone make an informed choice on their next Android phone, but I’m clueless when it comes to headphones. Think of the Slant community as a super efficient way of sharing knowledge about products so we all come out on top.

We’re going to keep improving and expanding Slant until it’s the only place you need to go to get your next blender, todo app or RPG game. We’re deadset on building a consumer run alternative to the App stores, Amazon and Steam that not only is easier to use but meritocratically rewards the best products.
