    Lovely execution and a useful product - I can tell you and your team have worked hard on this! I'd really like to join up, but those payment plans are pretty costly, especially with all the other tools I'm subscribed to. I agree with Matt above ^ - could you not introduce a more affordable plan which serves a smaller team or freelancer? Or increase project quota/allowance? Just a suggestion. Regardless, well done

    As is Google Calendar (desktop / non-app). I use it so much, I wish they cleaned it up a bit.

    Yeah, that could've been a lot clearer (modal on load would be better). The 'i' icon certainly isn't enough.

    I'd prefer better battery life than all of these fairly pointless features, to be honest

    Hate to say it, but I really don't like either design.

    The original (old) version is so distracting and overwhelming that I can't digest any of the useful content it delivers.

    The new version is just too heavy on the colour. I really dislike that typeface too - the squashed 'a' is horrid. It's just a HUGE homepage - they need to simplify the hierarchy.

    I'm surprised this got rolled out - I'm disappointed, as they churn out some good info on design but can't deliver a decent looking site.

    Like it - nice and clean style. The wording is a little off though in various places -

    'Franklins locate and select four links of hip hop' - doesn't read well. The service name is 'Franklins' not 'Franklin', so the text should be 'locates and selects...' or 'Franlinks can/will locate and select...'

    Might be worth proofreading your content. Otherwise, good job!
