    Wow, that's exactly what I was hoping for — some details about how you use those tools ;) Actually I was hoping if there is one solution for almost everything, as having such a big number as you (and I do) takes a lot of switching time.

    Nice idea about collecting comments yourself, btw, as I mostly deal with my clients by email/skype, or Basecamp, and they don't like putting comments in Basecamp because many of them want say to add some comments directly on layout, put arrows, etc... and to do it in Basecamp, you need to fire some external program, add, then save, upload... so they usually resign :)

    Do you use either UXpin or Invision to make interactive prototypes, not wireframes? Like when there are 10 pages ready and you want to show how menus and small interactions work, or how pages link with each other? If yes, do you import Photoshop/Sketch or just plain JPG/PNGs?

    And about ThriveSolo — haven't checked it out. Do you track hours right inside Thrive Solo? And about project management — you mean tasks/subtasks? As you've already mentioned Basecamp for some sort of project management too.

    Thanks for your answers!

      I sometimes use invision and UXPin for prototypes but on a case by case basis when i feel it fits. I used the prototyping in UXPin for the wireframes of a SAAS app that I created and it was in order to help pitch the app. Potential investors need to be able to click around to get wireframes. I have prototyped with Invision mostly as a way to present hi-fidelity mockups while showing flow. If the site is something simple like a blog this isnt important but certain web apps/sites require a interactive flow to properly convey your thinking. I just use jpegs for these.

      Thrive solo (http://www.thrivesolo.com/) is for personal project management, not client and or employee management. It tracks things like hours, progress, multiple projects, planning, invoices, and other management aspects that arent always specific to projects. It isnt for communication as much as it is organization.
