When discovering and testing a new product, web or mobile, if i get inspired by the user experience or some UI elements, I make screenshots and store them in a folder. Sometimes, if the user flow is good, I take millions of screenshots (or a video) to capture every step of the process and number each image to keep it in order.
I wish I had a tool to organize all these screenshots, even reproduce the user flow, annotate with my comments and share with my team.
Do you know any tool that can do that?
I have seen some people use Eagle for this.
I loosely keep track of design inspiration on Notion! It's like your personal interest. For ex, I am collecting a resource of Notion-based websites that look nice here: https://www.notion.so/optemization/2e452a37cb6841c6a91154b133744323?v=1f24d3b07ed1476e98f6d7bf00aee352
I haven't used any team tools in this space recently. When our team is researching design inspiration, typically we'll share screenshots in Notion which works reasonably well just as a way to pull ideas together. Definitely not as flexible as an app built around sharing design files, though.
Eagle looks great—and a few others I've heard of include Dropmark and Niice.
One I've been trying lately that's very nicely designed is mymind, a new beta visual bookmarking tool that's a bit similar to Zootool. You can clip any website or drag in any photo, then search for them and mymind manages to find things based on colors, website keywords, recognized text, and more. You can also add custom tags to organize manually, and share individual bookmarks with others. If they make a collaborative version, that may end up being a great option.
Zootool, the closest other app I've used to it, has been shut down, as have so many Mac apps in this space (at least, to organize images for personal inspiration and research) including Ember, Inboard, Pixa, and Stache.
Another newer personal app for design inspiration is the Mac app Pixave—but again, that'd only help in organizing design files on your own, not as a team. And Pinterest could, to a certain degree, work for sharing design inspiration with a team, though in more of a social network than a design-focused tool.
I would suggest Whimsical. If you need to talk to pro users, send me a Twitter DM.
Actually my ideal setup is designing in Figma and running automations and workflows around the design process in Coda
I‘m using Notion and I like the fact that I can relate inspiration notes with projects.
But Notion is slow and I like to be able to browse my gallery quickly. Do when I recently discovered https://eagle.cool it was an insta-buy and i really grew accustomed quickly.
The downside is that I keep the same information in two places - until I make up my mind to which I want to settle.
Hey guys, first post here. As part of my work, I have to deal with and respond to a lot of incoming messages from different chats: Linkedin/WhatsApp/Signal/IG. I try to use Unreads/Archive features...
Markdown is the most popular way to format plain text. Add common characters like asterisks and dashes to text, much like how you might format a quick store list in your notes app or add emphasis ...
Or do you use the Linux subsytem in Windows, emulation tools like DosBOX and WINE, or mobile device emulator/simulators? What's your favorite ways you've used virtual machines and emulation?
