We often feel bored at work due to the monotony of routine or at times we may just lack the inspiration to pull ourselves up and make our life interesting.
Such issues make us unproductive and can even adversely affect our emotional state. It may sound like a trivial problem, but it’s not. If emotional state is not taken care of, it can really hamper an employee’s productivity as well.

“We all want to be more productive in life, but the most important secret of productivity is our emotional state. Homey: Productivity Start Page is the way to share my warmth with all those people who open its start page every day,”.

We noticed that in large organizations main focus tends to be productivity while the emotional state of employees is overlooked. That convinced us to come out with a new tab tool like Homey Productivity Start Page.

We also calls Homey our “personal mood assistant” and that it surely is thanks to the features it provides. Moreover, it’s really light and easy to use, which means it’s not a drain either on your PC or your mind.

Honestly an amazing app! Hindered a bit by the search bar which removes or changes your search if you have certain symbols (-, +, &, \, etc.). Simply searching with the raw string rather than evaluating it would be better.

Целая группа закладок, которые невозможно удалить! Свои группы создавать нельзя. В топку такое расширение!

Not a bad extension but not worth what is being asked for the premium option - $10 a year to have customised icons? I don't spend all day looking at this thing admiring its appearance - it gets about five seconds screen time maximum before I click on a bookmark. The rest of the features are of little or no interest. Make it a one off $5 payment and I'll think about it.

[update] Suddenly, Homey is resetting every time I reboot and I have to reconfigure it. It is hardly saving me time anymore. I'll probably bail out soon unless this is somehow resolved.
