I agree with Gavin. 

InvisionApp is *wonderfully* simple to use & allows you to capture notes from all involved. 

Makes for impressive clickable phone & pad demos on the iPhone & iPad, not to mention the desktop browser. 

It's free to try. Takes only minutes -- load a couple of images, draw the hot-spots in InvisionApp & click to send a test to yourself with annotations allowed. 

I love the thing!

Tom-

Have you checked out InVision? It's a fast and easy way to share your wires with anyone, on any device. You can design everything in Keynote (or any tool you choose) and upload .jpg/.png/.pdf etc. to your projects in InVision  Once they're in InVision  you can link the screens together with hotspots to create an interactive prototype. It also gives you a share link so that you/your team can interact with it and leave threaded comments on screen. Really useful for keeping track of changes all in one place. Make sure you check out the InVisionSync mac app to automatically update your projects for you when you change your screens.
Version 2 is about to launch REALLY soon with tons of new stuff, so keep your eye out for that.

Hi, 

Was wondering if anyone has stumbled upon a great workflow/tool for annotating, sharing and managing wireframes. 

Currently I create my wires in Keynote, export as PDF and then copy into a Keynote annotation template I use. I've been doing it this way for a long time and some of the biggest issues I run into are:

1. The little numbers: Seems like a no-brainer that there should be an automated numbering/ID system for annotations to automatically update whether you're adding or deleting annotations.

2. Space: Often times I'll run out of space on a single page for annotations and need to copy over to another page. Seems like there should be a better way. 

3. Client Comments: I used to use IWork to share and capture client comments, but now that's gone:-(. There's got to be something else just as good, I just haven't been able to find it. 


I used to use Axure a while ago and liked the annotation capability. However, I found the widget interface too slow compared to Keynote. If possible, I'd like to continue to use Keynote to create my wires and avoid having to use a new tool. However, open to suggestions and what others have experienced. 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I'll compile recommendations and send back to the group. 

Thanks!
