Ask DN: What project management software do you use for freelance?

    To facilitate feedback I use http://www.invisionapp.com/

    Invision is great for design for the following reasons:

    1. Feedback happens in context
    2. You can have many parallel discussion happening at the same time
    3. You can see which you've read, and mark them as complete as you address them
    4. You can update the screens.
    5. You can create clickable elements and simulate interactions

    Then I shoot a general email letting them now where to look, and what I accomplished with links to Invision.

    So far its worked very well.

      Agreed, Invision is great, especially the Dropbox integration. Simply update files in Dropbox, and 30 seconds later, your browser automatically updates and shows the changes. Makes for a very smooth workflow.

      I've only had problems when you get to very large prototypes (several hundred comps). The website performance really goes down the drain. (A prototype never should be that large really, but it ended up being that way due to some unfortunate surprises from a third-party contractor.)
