    3. See what kind of problems they are solving and follow a similar path.
    4. You can see Trending problems amongst your friends.
    5. Go to a separate Friends' Leaderboard and compare your progress with each other.

  • Add problems to a unified ToDo List
    Till now you used to remember two or three problems that you need to solve. Every time going to the site then searching for the problem that you remembered is painful. Now with StopStalk you have problems across various websites which makes it one-stop place to aggregate every problem that needs to be solved at one place. Click on any icon besides a problem and find the problem on the ToDo List page.
  • Search problems with various important filters
    Most important part in practicing for Competitive programming is finding what problems to solve. Either you rely on some friend of yours telling you "This is an interesting problem to solve!" or you go on a site and depending on your mood pick up a problem. Now, why just go on one of the Competitive Programming site when your motive is to find a problem regardless of the site. Head over to the Problem Search page and apply the filters to find just what you're looking for.

    Two very important features on this page -
    1. As you might know every site may have different tags for the same category. For example: Dynamic Programming is represented as dp in CodeForces and dynamic-prog or dynamic-programming in CodeChef. Just select Dynamic Programming from the generalized tags dropdown and we will do the rest for you :)
    2. Sometimes you feel like solving problems which have editorial written for it because you don't want to get stuck. Just tick "Only show Problems with Editorials" and we will only show the problems which have an editorial.
