What a year! We’ve collected stories, design insights and fun facts we’ve seen in Zeplin in 2016. Hope you enjoy them!
Currently yes, but we'll hopefully release the Windows version in 1-2 weeks :)
We’ve been alpha testing Zeplin’s Photoshop plugin for a while now. It’s time to release the beta to the masses! We still have a lot to do, please give it a try and let us know how we can improve!
As a very small team, when you're trying to launch 1.0 a LOT faster then you initially planned for (with the push of YC, we love them for it!) tests/plans kind of fall short. :) We worked our asses off for a week to polish everything later (the product is still buggy in many ways tbh) but this is something we look back and smile at, not something we're ashamed of really. :)
Thanks! You're right, we heard this a lot and we'll make them bigger soon :)
We prepared a little something, including the most used colors/fonts/densities of the year :) Hope you enjoy!
Hey! Sorry for not sharing the context. :) Normally designers are using Zeplin to share their designs/specs with their developers. You create a project in Zeplin, invite your devs and upload your designs from Sketch.
We got a lot feedback asking for a way to share these projects with other people like PMs, clients or whoever. But they had to create an account and get invited to the project. This is now a quick way to share your projects in Zeplin with anyone you want.
Hey! We just released a new feature that lets you share your projects in Zeplin publicly. I'd love to hear your feedback. :)
Here's a sample with Meng To's new iOS 9 GUI: https://scene.zeplin.io/project/55e80ad1b0a7da160ff25004
I actually had a chance to watch a character design stream last week, it was really great and helpful to watch illustrators while working. And the best part was that you can ask the streamers questions in real time, and hear their replies. Also it’d be a great concept to watch UI designers live :)
We are planning to add PS support in Q3. Dropbox sync would also be really great like you said and it is definitely on our list.
