    We're using Zeplin. It's still pretty early and has a few rough edges, but it does a decent job of:

    • overview of the project
    • commenting (plus hotspots... I think. Didn't use layervault so not certain what this feature is)
    • ability to share a URL (it's both a native Mac app and a web app)

    It's still got a long way to go but feels like a good horse to back.

      Zeplin is great, super polished for such an early product. No performance issues at least.

      No mention of version history (Layervault's primary feature, imo), does Zeplin have it? Also, there's no PS support yet.

        There's no version history yet, but Zeplin is possibly recording it already. Whenever you update a screen in the app it matches it to existing screens, so should be straightforward to present a version history of each screen.

        I don't use PS so that's not an issue for me.
