Show DN: the fastest way to get design feedback

over 6 years ago from , Conjure.io

Hi DN!

Conjure.io has been busy!

Below is an insider sneak peak of what's to come. Feedback from colleagues and clients is frictionless and real-time. One click, enter your feedback and you're done :)


Disclosure: I work for Conjure.io

    That looks pretty slick, Henry. Why would someone choose this over InVision, RedPen, or Notable?

      Thanks Luke for your feedback :)

      Good question! Obviously I'm biased, but someone would choose Conjure over the other offerings you mention if they're looking for the fastest way to get feedback on their designs and they want the best solution for that purpose to complement their existing workflow e.g. using Photoshop, Sketch or Framer.js for prototyping and then getting colleague/client feedback out of the realm of the email inbox and into a tool specifically designed for the best visual feedback experience.

      Conjure.io now supports pretty much all the file types you could need for it to fit in your existing workflow too :)

      Finally, what you choose to use is down to personal preference of course! Variety is the spice of life :) Conjure's singular focus on the feedback part of the workflow process and it's continued development and improvement mark it out from tools like RedPen or Notable say.

        So no competitive advantage over say invision which is recognized as an industry standard option. Versus something like zeplin which provides the spec'ing advantage which is executed really well.

          Hi Nick!

          A focus on excelling in a specific area can be a competitive advantage. Few would argue that Google Search hasn't got Microsoft Bing beaten ;)

          Conjure users have come from using Invision as they want increased flexibility in their workflow and aren't looking for a heavyweight prototyping solution. To each their own :)

          Regarding Zeplin: it's a great tool! Again, a tool that excels with a singular focus on collaboration at the designer <> developer interface (detailed specs etc).

          Conjure solves a different problem: excelling at the feedback/collaboration interface between designers <> stakeholders (whether clients or internal company stakeholders, not just developers).

            But invision is commonly used as a feedback collector and an approval system, it plays well with adobe and sketch, I don't see why adding this on top of invision helps?

              I agree completely. InVision works amazingly well with Photoshop and Sketch. You can even have PSD's with folder structures that automagically update within InVision. It allows client feedback and newly added Workflow abilities (reminds me a lot of Trello). Usability testing. White boarding. Snaps. Live capture. I just don't think your argument is strong as to why designers would switch from such a phenomenal product to something (so far) just used for client feedback and commenting.

              I hope this hasn't felt like a negative comment. I still think you guys have done a fantastic job on Conjure...but it just isn't a strong enough argument and feature set (not to mention learning a new workflow) for me to switch from a product that I (and thousands of others) use for every project I work on.

              If it's way faster than invision (like cloudapp, for example), I might prefer this. I often ask around for immediate feedback on tiny detail stuff, then throw away the screenshot forever. I'd have to go thru the work of deleting it in dropbox/invision. Redpen is almost there, but they still needs email from the recipient to be able to comment. Feedback isn't always internal.

              Also, imagine what if you can write comment on top of a video clip.

                Eh I don't know. I don't think it's too much work to drop a saved file into Invision and then delete it.

                  I do 5-10 times a day. It is some work ;) But yeah, alternatively, I could create a 'junk' folder in invision, and just leave everything there.

                Hi JJ,

                We have something that picks up where Cloudapp left off: no upload limits & it's free. Commenting/feedback on the recipient side is seamless i.e. you don't need an account. Ping me if you want early access and I'll put you in touch with the right person here:
