OK guys, am I missing something?
$99/mo is rather steep for what I see...
Hey Yasen. Co-founder here. It's $25/mo for single users, $99/mo for small teams. We just added the ability to comment on images, so if you don't use the prototyping features on Invision and just the commenting, Pastel replaces Invision for you and consolidates feedback on both static designs and interactive websites. Did you get a chance to see the product in action?
Thanks for the response. I haven't delved deeply in the product, however, hear me out (I'm looking at this as a small/medium team member):
I have the strongest of feelings that more than $1K per year for a tool that only provides feedback is quite insane.
Again, I might be missing something groundbreaking here.
I'm not a fan of Invision's offerings but they are also $25/mo for unlimited projects and offer tons more functionality than just commenting.
I will have to try the interactive website commenting, typically my team just comments on designs in Figma or takes screenshots of the live site and posts that in Figma.
their logo looks like upside down google jamboard.
Hah, I see it. Looks like a music note.
I thought the same at first but the weird thing, jamboard is not even related with music :D
why people should use pastel instead of invision or wake?
Great question, Hüseyin.
The biggest difference of Pastel is that you can type in a URL and click and comment on the actual website and actual UI elements without installing anything. In addition to that you can also upload PNG and JPG files. Pastel is built to be a feedback first product and the nice thing about that is having one place for both design and development feedback. I found that clients and developers don't care about which tool they use as long as its in one place and easily actionable. You can also take the feedback and export to Asana, Trello, Jira and more.
I love that someone finally tackle this. The price is too steep for me as well because it won’t replace my zeplin (still need to do handoff somehow).
