Fellow designers, would you find this tool useful or utterly pointless?

      Thanks for posting these - I was aware of a few of these but not all. They all go far beyond my need and offer way more functionality then I'm after.

      I'm interested solely in having a preference test, so comparing a few designs against each other and allowing the user to pick their choice. Having a nice format to present this (see the prototype) and sketch/slack integration would be key.

      Someone posted designbetter.io which is pretty much it, lol, feels a bit clunky tho

      Damn, I didn't know all of these existed! Lol. Do you have a preference? :)

        Not really, no. In general I prefer to avoid this kind of approach (asking team what they prefer) at all. I'd rather collect feedback in-person (either really in-person or via DM) early on when it's still sketches, and look for what would work (and why), what would not, what limitations that I'm not aware of may exist etc.

        Then by the time it really is a finished mockup everyone in the team knows why everything is the way it is. Style choices may still arise, but they should be limited to design team.

          Yeah, makes sense! It's much better to get a grasp of what people think in person, talking, like human beings, lol. Thanks for sharing, Ichik!

          interesting take, I really relate to this as well!. In person, where possible, is far more efficient.

        I've only used Wake, and it was alright. We didn't continue to use it, as our team is really small so we just ended up having a weekly meeting for it. I would prefer it to be more engrained, but whatevs.
