Axe gives you the chopping block you need to start hacking away. You don't even have to leave your couch!
What is Axe?
There are plenty of great feedback tools on the web, but no really good ones for tablets. Get dirty with Axe! Scribbling things out with your finger feels so much better.
Editing a page down to its bare bones and giving critical feedback isn't easy. With Axe, giving feedback is in your hands, making it fun and easy to share when and where the inspiration strikes.
What makes giving feedback on a tablet so great?
Glad you asked! With people using tablets more and more these days, it's likely you'll see something ugly on the web when you don't have a computer handy. Without a mobile feedback tool, you're likely to forget all about it or lose the inspiration to share before you get home. With Axe, you'll share feedback right when you see it.
But I've never given feedback on a tablet before. How do I give good feedback?
Lucky for you, the same tried and true strategies you use on the web still apply. Here are a couple tips to set you on the right track.
- Be specific. Vague comments like "This looks ugly!" don't help anyone. No need to write a novel, but if something is ugly, explain why.
- Context matters. With Axe, use your finger to hack out the areas that need changing. Add comments near by so the reader will know what you're talking about.
Getting started with Axe is painless. Grab a screenshot, axe it up, add some comments and share!
