Notable has taken a dose of its own medicine, if you will, monitoring its customers' usage and feedback in order to roll out today what is a major redesign of this great app. Notable is a browser-based tool that lets you easily annotate and share feedback on website design and content.The web design feedback tool
We covered Notable when the app launched a few years ago, and raved about its simplicity. As Frederic Lardinois wrote at the time, "The service works without any hiccups, is easy to use, and clearly focused on giving a specific set of users the right tools to get the job done without being encumbered by lots of extra bells and whistles." Even so, the app is now more streamlined, with many of its feedback features easier to use.
One of the best additions may be that there are now new ways to capture the websites you'd like to annotate. The original version of Notable worked (best) in Firefox, but there are now browser plugins for all major browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE - as well as tools to capture information from the iPhone, iPad, Mac Desktop and Windows Desktop screens. You can also export directly from Photoshop.
Capturing what a website looks like is really just the first step in the process of getting feedback and revising it. The redesigned Notable has made it easier to share posts, either with a team, with specific individuals, or even with those outside your team. The app also helps clarify why people are being asked to comment, what sorts of information you'd like, and how they should act on it.
The app has also altered its user and storage limits. With the free account, you can have 10 active pages captured for annotation; the paid plans give you an unlimited number of pages to capture and mark up, as well as several additional features including PDF exports.
